The heartbeat of RSB features the awarding winning music and showmanship of Myrtle Beach based singers, songwriters, & entertainers Rick Strickland and Lesa Hudson and their arsenal of 26 #1 beach & shag music radio hits including:  Something Smooth, So Do I, One Step Closer, She Can’t Fix Grits, Party Til The Break Of Dawn, Bubba White, and more recent hits Every Now And Then, I’m Hungover, When You Look At Me, Amazingly Amazing, Get Your Feet On The Floor and the 2020 CBMA Song of the Year - A Little More Love!  And their current #1 hits on the radio include new 2021 releases Dream Come True by Rick, and Sunny Days by Lesa.  But Rick & Lesa's music is far from the typical "beach band."  Their impressive original song playlist covers the gamut in musical styles including Classic R&B Soul, Classic Rock, old school Funk, and a splash of Country, guaranteed to please audiences of all preferences!  Their unique styles, passion for music and winning personalities sets them apart from the rest.   Rick & Lesa are recipients of 27 Carolina Beach Music Awards (CBMA) and have been recognized with over 150 CBMA nominations for their musical contributions to the music industry.  In 2017, Rick was inducted into the Carolina Beach Music Hall of Fame, and in 2018, Lesa was named CBMA Female Vocalist of the Year.  2020 was a banner year for awards as they picked up 7 CBMA awards for their widely loved anthem "A Little More Love" including CBMA Song of the Year and Lesa also picked another award for Female Vocalist.  Additionally, Lesa is a 4 time nominee in the Inspirational Country Awards held annually in Nashville TN. 

When the COVID-19 Pandemic of 2020 brought live musical performances to a screeching halt, Rick & Lesa rose to the challenge of doing what they could to encourage and uplift others with their music.  On March 22, 2020, Rick & Lesa launched their "Quarantine Tour" performing a show every Sunday at 3pm on Facebook Live.  The Quarantine Tour continues to this day under the re-branded name of Rick & Lesa's Happy Hour and airs every Monday at 7pm on Facebook Live.  The show continues to reach thousands of listeners every week around the world.
