Riko and Whaler Collective

Psychedelic Rock, Experimental Music and Art Collective



The Riko and Whaler Collective (RWC) is a band originally from West Chester, PA. RWC prides itself on delivering exciting, unique performances that entices its audience to become immersed in the melody and groove. We try to make every show different and approach each song we play with a fresh take. RWC blends many genres together such as Jam Band, Psychedelic Rock, Jazz, Funk, and Hard Rock to appeal to music and art appreciators of all sorts. The set lists vary from show to show but often include free flowing and electric improvisational pieces, original songs, as well as select covers of bands such as The Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, Miles Davis, and many more. You just never know what we may throw in to surprise you. Shows can get super psychedelic and spacey as well as funky and groovy, it all depends on the show, the vibe, and the audience. Catch a live show or two to see what we mean and experience it for yourself. We promise you will come back for more! 

The Riko and Whaler Collective, while being a musical performance group is also an experimental and expansive art collective that connects and promotes artists, creators, and brings creative minds together in order to support and collaborate with each other. It has always been an "if you want in, you are in" approach. Contact us today if you would like to join the team!
