Rich Libutti plays a road worn and well loved Rickenbacker through a pedal board full of vintage effects. He also pays bass with his feet and tells super nerdy Star Wars jokes. SIRSY is known for passionate performances that often include lots of stories from the road, laughs, and dance parties. It's a good time! :) CHECK OUT SIRSY: http://www.sirsy.com/ VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gx6RJZMelds
