Hello, my name is Rick Richards, and yes, I'm new to Gig Masters but not to performing flawless energetic personable shows, both as a solo artist and with my band! Originally from California, playing with several bands there and now here, I have made Texas my home! I am a performer, singer, songwriter, and cover artist. My shows are intimate, fun, and custom tailored to each event. I have a long list of references since coming here, from the Opry Circuit, to weekly solo gigs, to private and corporate parties, to benefits. Every song I do is a dance song, recognizable in the first 3 bars, and delivered in a way that makes everyone feel like they are involved in the entire show. I want to thank you for stopping by to view my profile and perhaps, giving me the opportunity to be your entertainment choice for your next event!
Why should you select me over the rest of the talented artists here? There may be several reasons, but if you just picture this...Garth Brooks, Prince, Mick Jagger, Elvis Presley, Tom Jones, to name a few! What do all of these artists have in common? I would call it connection with their audience! Completely and emotionally attached to them, as if they were connected at the heart somehow! You walk away feeling as if you know them more than just a great entertainer, don't you? Another reason....I've had 100% better than expected results according to my clients! There are singers and then there are singers that can not only deliver a song, but an entire evening of emotionally exhillerating music that reels you in as if it's your own front row seat to a private concert! Engaging is not an adequate description of the intimacy you will experience. Now that I've set the bar so high, guess I have to deliver, don't I? I'll let you be the judge...Thanks for the opportunity, and even if you don't choose me, we may see each other some day in another show somewhere! It will be my pleasure then just as it would be right now! RR
