Biography

Dr. Ring-Ding a.k.a. Richie Senior was born in 1970 in Münster, Germany to a multi-cultural and musical household. His introduction to music began with singing along with his family and learning the recorder (deathly boring) but he soon switched to more interesting instruments such as the trombone. From 1987 on he played in the horn section of El Bosso & die Ping Pongs, one of Germany‘s most famous Ska bands and the only one of its time which sang in German. From this experience he came to love Jamaican music.

Around Christmas of 1992 Richie formed his own band, Dr. Ring-Ding & the Senior Allstars. Over the next ten years they would release five albums, numerous singles and two albums as the backing band for Doreen Shaffer (JA) and Lord Tanamo (JA), and in doing so made their mark on the international Ska scene.

Dr. Ring-Ding is a popular live performer, studio musician, arranger and producer in many different music genres such as Swing, Rhythm & Blues, Chanson, Hip Hop, Rumba-Soukouss and Punk, but, above all, in Reggae, Dancehall and Ska.

Richie‘s cooperation with German Reggae producer HP Setter was immortalized on the solo dub album Big T‘ings and on the compilation Riddim In Exile. His work with the Rock crossover band H-Blockx secured him a hit with the tune Ring Of Fire, which went to number 13 on the German charts in the summer of 2000. Further collaborations with H-Blockx followed; among others on the title track of their album Get In The Ring (2002), which boxing world champion Sven Ottke selected as his entrance music.
