The event will feature live music from Kristin & the Honey Badgers led by Kristin Markiton—who audiences loved as Francesca in The Bridges of Madison County—and will be the lead in Aurora’s upcoming MAMMA MIA! The band is comprised of experienced, well respected, hard-working musicians who got together so they could play whatever kind of music they wanted to play and say “HELL NO” to anyone requesting “Mustang Sally” or “Brown Eyed Girl.” They play a mixture of old school R&B, blues, and funk with a splash of surf and Hendrix once a month at Blind Willie’s Blues Club.
Kristin Markiton (lead vocals) recently appeared as Francesca Johnson in Aurora’s production of The Bridges of Madison County and, the spring before that, as the Stepmother/Witch u/s in Into the Woods. She will be returning to the Aurora stage this spring playing a mom yet again as Donna in Mamma Mia and is currently working at Stage Door Players as Margot Wendice in Dial “M” for Murder. Kristin is also a performing songwriter who has released two studio albums: her debut solo album, Wandering Moon and Howlin’, a collaboration with the Atlanta-based band, Delta Moon.
Rick Hinkle (guitar, vocals) started doing regular session work in the 70s at Tom Wright’s Melody Recording Studio, as part of a 4-piece rhythm section that became Air Raid, recording with Eddie Kramer in 1980. Some other recordings during that period include Paul Davis, King Hannibal, James Purify, Joe South, and Buchner & Garcia, including the 1981 gold record, Pac Man Fever. Since that time, Rick has continued to record in many different styles, with many blues and soul artists such as Sandra Hall, Ben E. King, Chick Willis, Frank Frost, and Johnny Jenkins. He also played on Howard Tate Rediscovered; produced by Jerry Ragovoy and nominated for a Grammy in 2004. He has played live shows with Trini Lopez, Buddy Grecco, Martha Reeves, Bill Joe Royal, The Tams, Bonnie Bramlett, William Bell, Little Antony, and many others.
Tommy Vickery (bass, vocals) started playing guitar at age 10, when he first heard the Beatles. At age 15, as a bassist, he opened for Chuck Jackson, Eddie Floyd and Percy Sledge at the Atlanta Municipal Auditorium. Toured the Middle East and Europe with Cody Marshall in the 80s, and Japan with Bertie Higgins, then formed Terry Lee and the GTS, who backed up Little Anthony, Archie Bell, The Platters, The Drifters, Gregg Allman, and Wilson Pickett. In the 90s, he toured with Randall Bramblett, sharing the stage with Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones), Jai Johanny Johnson of the Allman Bros. Band, and Macon, GA blues legend Johnny Jenkins. He’s recently been gigging and doing recording sessions around Atlanta with Paul Hornsby, Mike Veal, Tommy Talton, Kristin and the Honey Badgers, and many others.
