R5 is a unique group of siblings born and raised in Littleton, Colorado. They have always had a fascinated group of followers and fans, ever since they showed up at their first performance in their matching outfits at the age of six on down to one. They’ve been performing, singing, dancing and acting, since they all could barely walk. Finally moving to Los Angeles in the fall of 2007, they’ve struck a chord in Hollywood, working on nearly 100 different theatrical, commercial and dancing projects.
After adding the crucial missing link, the best friend and drummer “Ratliff” to the family band, they are even more excited about their musical future. They can be seen playing live shows throughout the LA basin, from Six Flags Magic Mountain to The San Diego County Fair.
With Riker’s recurring role on Glee and Ross’s new starring role on Disney, the R5 fan base is growing rapidly around the world. Many of those fans are seasoned Hollywood producers and musicians that are surprised at the writing and performance skills the band has shown at such a young age. And next month (Febuary) R5 new Ablum come out called LOUD EP. :D
