Lovely Rita (yes, she really was named after the song) has been a music lover since birth. She is the very definition of a music tourist, having attended or worked at concerts or festivals in 15 countries across 4 continents with plans for more. She has been a fixture at RoSfest since 2014 when she first came to the festival with Lisa Wetton.
When she is not a cape-wearing, bad-music-fighting member of the Crewsome Twosome with Octavia Brown, Rita is busy in many aspects of the music world. With her partner in musical crime, Sven Henriksen, she operates The Band Wagon USA, a merchandising website and fulfillment center for a growing number of artists, as well as a logistical and merch support provider for bands on tour. She manages The Cyberiam, a heavy prog band from Chicago, and assists with a few others. She owns Random Disturbance Records, home of Edison’s Children and Rick Armstrong. She is a member of both the ProgStock crew and NJ Proghouse staph.
In her spare time… Who are we kidding, she doesn’t have any spare time…
