Call the Box Office



Mudbone plays an eclectic version of the blues by incorporating elements of funk, jazz, Latin, zydeco, and reggae. Band members, Rick Howard, David Johnson, Bill E. Peterson and Mario Infante together have a vast musical experience. Rick Howard, the band’s front man, is a multi-faceted guitarist and vocalist who plays and sings it all. Guitarist and vocalist Mario "The Catman" Infanti is known for his eclectic, showmanship style of playing. He regularly toured with two-time Grammy award winner Chuck Mangione and played countless venues all over the country including the legendary Blue Note in New York City. David C. Johnson, the group’s bassist and multi-instrumentalist, has unparalleled technical skill on the bass, only equaled by his musical versatility. Bill E. Peterson, the band’s drummer, can perform any genre of music with authenticity and taste.

This concert is part of the Live & Local series at Artis—Naples.

Tickets are also available at the door.


“Mudbone is a true Southwest Florida super group comprised of some of the area's most notorious musicians.  A Rick Howard performance is a lesson in musical diversity and his passion and sense of humor will give his audience an unforgettable experience.”
