A little bit about me - I was born in Estonia in musician family and after that I lived for 6 years in Los Angeles, California. My first musical performance was at the age of 4. I played piano at the Estonian House in Los Angeles California. When I got back to Estonia and turned 13, I was fed up with playing classical pieces on piano and started strumming my mother old guitar. Then I started with my first bands with mates from schools. In high school I started playing in my first professional bands and developed a more serious interest for music.
In the last 7 years I have performed over 600 shows with different groups and alone in Estonia, Germany, Sweden, France, Finland, Spain, United Kingdom, Netherlands and Holland. One of my biggest passions is songwriting complimenting my passion on performing. From 2015 I use the artist name Ike Rann.
Ike Rann (Ikevald Rannap) is a band that play's classic rock, funk and pop with a splash of energy and authenticity. An amazing band if you need to get the party started. In addition to the other amazing musicians, Brazilian guitarist Ricardo Guarilha spices the songs up.

Age isn't an issue with Ike and his band, he could cater for anybody that wants a wedding or a concert at their own pace and has FUN in the title, everybody from our age into their 60s loved Ike and his band, the enthusiasm and drive he puts into his work is outstanding! Highly recommended!
Rocket is 6-piece funk band in Estonia. The repertoire consists of originals and classics from James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Maceo etc. The band plays everything with their own touch and passion. It's great for parties, if you want to experience something different, but still fill the dancefloor.Watch the video here
