Our music

The R&P Vibes acoustic duo performs a wide variety of high energy songs that are fun, engaging and connect with the listeners without overpowering them so they can listen and still hold a conversation.  Formed by Russel Bell and Patrick Starke in 2022, the duo combines a flow of rhythms, creative leads, and strong vocals with sweet harmonies.  Their unique cover song selection keeps the sets interesting and the audience engaged.  A retired Air Force veteran, Russel Bell has over 25 years experience playing out with various bands and soloing.  He has written dozens of songs and released two cd’s featuring his original work.  Patrick Starke, a retired teacher, has been playing at open mics since his first one in 2016 at McGeary’s Pub in Albany.  He also plays with a band and enjoys writing songs and jamming with other musicians whenever possible.  R&P Vibes would love to play for you.  Check out our few short video clips!
