Ragtime Rick and the Chefs of Dixieland
We gather in many places, but routinely at Shield’s of Southfield two-three times a month from 1-3:30 p.m. – normally the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month. We are proud to host the finest musicians of these genres in the Detroit, Toledo, and Ann Arbor areas.
Shield’s of Southfield is located at 25101 Telegraph Road (at 10 Mile) in Southfield, 48033. We do not take reservations and please do not call the venue about our concerts. There is a $10 entertainment charge at the door which covers the cost of these fine musicians and their bands.
About Ragtime Rick
Ragtime Rick and the Chefs of Dixieland is a 7-piece Traditional Jazz Band “sure to make you smile!” Rick Grafing operated his own club, Ragtime Rick’s First Draught, for more than 22 years in Toledo, Ohio. After the popular landmark closed in 2003, he resumed his career as a ragtime performer playing at concert halls, clubs, private parties, Jazz Festivals, Senior Citizen Centers – and anywhere that folks gathered to be entertained and have fun.
