Sunflower Theater


March 10, 2017

The Two Tens, Rikki Styxx and Morgan Aaron

Rikki McNamee bought her first drumset as a senior at Montezuma Cortez High School, coincidentally or not, she was also voted most mischievous.

The ingredients of a rock star? You tell us.

Peering through the porthole of time spent in Zetroc, Co, a wild, hazy four decades give or take a few years, there is a shared feeling of warmth, safety and respect; only offered in tight-knit small town American communities.

Back in the day, although we didn't walk to school uphill both ways in the snow, we didn't rely on cell phones, social media or corporate/msm to stay "connected."

Somehow we "connected," partied like it was 1999, because it was, all day, all night, 8 days a week. As teenagers we knew the heartbeat of our small town beat to garage rock-n-roll.

Over the years many people and events have influenced the up and coming Rikki Styxx. Mike Sheek taught her grooves. Morgan Garon provided stable friendship and taught work ethic. Adam Bones, her rockmate, travels the world by her side and screams rhythm into The Two Tens microphones.

According to rikkistyxx.com, "in 2016, Rikki played 123 shows, toured 21 states and 9 countries, signed 3 record deals, played with 7 projects, and played 4 album releases. The Two Tens released their first full-length album, 'Volume,' on February 22nd and toured the west coast to promote that album in March."

If you are interested in dusting off your dancing shoes, throwing some horns and losing your voice for a few days, give The Two Tens a shout out, pick up a ticket and head to the Sunflower Theater in Cortez on March 11. Show starts at 7pm. Get there early though, load up on swag, spend a few extra dollars, stretch out the bones, and be ready for Adam Bones, Rikki Styxx and The Two Tens to rock, again, like it's 1999.
