The Riff Ryders are a group of three outstanding touring and studio musicians. Eric Hokkanen, Rick McRae and Terry Hale, who get together to perform some of your favorite old time music including everything from Western Swing to Jazz and even some gypsy tunes.

Rick McRae is best known as the long time guitarist for George Strait. Rick also plays with his trio the "Riff Ryders" -Eric Hokkanen, Rick McRae and Terry Hale (right) and plays solo gigs.  After playing with the Jimmy Heap Band and other groups in the 1970's, Rick joined the George Strait band in the early 1980's and never looked back.

First musical influence
....played rhythm guitar to fiddle tunes.

" I guess I am a total guitar nut. I love all the different aspects and sounds that they make. Guess that is why I have so many guitars. I like to play my electric classical guitar a lot too. I have recently started to learn more bluegrass flat-picking too. That will keep a man busy"

Favorite gig
....touring once a year with George Strait and his Ace in the Hole Band."
