Richard was the perfect addition to our party! He was relaxed, amenable, friendly and helpful. And great at playing the piano - especially the Cole Porter/classic jazzy standards we had requested. A great musician to hire for a gig. Definitely.

Richard definitely did a great job. He also has a vast array of music styles, and especially for my crowd being Indian, Richard played a few Bollywood songs which was awesome. Thanks Richard, you helped make our cocktail hour very elegant and we're very happy with our choice. - Vik

Before the event, I made contact with Richard and spoke to him about the music that we would like performed. He asked me some questions and we spoke about music for a bit. He was very accomodating, could play any type of music and was professional in appearance and perfomance. I would highly recommend him.
