RICHIE BEGIN AND SOUL UNIVERSITY IS NORTHERN CALIFORNIA'S MOST IN DEMAND WEDDING AND SPECIAL EVENTS PARTY BAND
AN AMAZING AND AFFORDABLE ALTERNATIVE, RICHIE BEGIN ALSO PERFORMS AS NORTHERN CALIFORNIA'S MOST EXCITING ONE-MAN-BAND- WITH THE SOUND OF A DANCEABLE QUARTET FOR THE PRICE OF A SINGLE SOLOIST.
In addition to being the leader and lead vocalist of San Francisco's and the Bay Area's most in-demand dance band for weddings and special events; SOUL UNIVERSITY!
I do something extra!
I offer an affordable alternative every cost-conscious party-planner and is booking right now, namely the sound, and the versatility danceability of a well-rehearsed quartet playing Classic Rock,R&B, Swing, Motown, and Smooth Jazz hits for the price of a soloist.
The most affordable and incredible thing I do is perform on stages all over California as a entertaining, danceable, listenable and very affordable One-Man-Band. I have played at almost all of Northern California's finest restaurants and casinos.
I do a lot of these gigs a soloist singing and playing guitar, while out of my small PA comes the sound of a three-piece backup band - piano, bass and drums recorded digitally in real time in my recording studio then transfered to iPod. I play music for listening and dancing mostly for weddings and restaurants and company functions. I perform classic country, folk, soul, pop, rock, Motown, R&B, jazz, bossanova and standards, songs everyone knows and loves.
I sound like Eric Clapton or Al Green and and his band, only it's just me, walking through the crowd with my wireless headset and wireless electric guitar encouraging folks to sing along to their favorite hits from Mustang Sally to Brown-Eyed Girl, from B.B. King to Prince and Boz Scaggs.
Treat yourself and your guests to the ultimate in affordable entertainment and engage the Life of the Party: Richie Begin and his fabulous One-Man-Band: and, a band that's always on time and knows 1500 of your favorite songs.
In addition I lead Soul University, a wonderful combo you can customize for your special event, from a Trio to Ten-Piece --- one that is available for your wedding or special event.
