  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
$750 - $950 per event
While I have my Rick Sherman Band, a 6-piece group which plays a wide variety of music for dining, dancing, and listening, including rock, pop, jazz, R & B, blues, Motown, etc., I am frequently hired as a one-man-band. I sing, and utilize 2 keyboards and 2 drum machines to get a full band sound by myself. However, I do NOT use pre-recorded backing tracks of any kind (audio, midi, computer files, etc.). I believe that when clients want live music, they do not want a DJ or Karaoke, they want LIVE music. I provide live music by playing left-hand bass, right-hand chording and soloing, and controlling 2 drum machines with 4 foot pedals. I have a huge, varied repertoire, including Billy Joel, Elton John, James Brown, Frank Sinatra, The Doors, Jimmy Buffet, Neil Diamond, The Beatles, The Eagles, Garth Brooks, and on and on. I am able to provide light jazz music for cocktail hour and dining, and then kick into high gear for entertaining dance music. I enjoy performing, and I get the crowd involved with my music, energy and humor. I am a veteran professional musician, and I have been doing this for decades. I started playing at The Village Inn on Balboa Island back in 1978, and celebrated my 35-year Anniversary of performing there back in May of 2013. I also performed regularly, since May of 2005, every Saturday night for its final 8 years at The Villa Nova Restaurant, a landmark in Newport Beach (now the home of The Winery Restaurant). I provide live entertainment for numerous annual Balboa Island community events (annual Art Walk in May, annual parade in June, and annual Christmas Tree Lighting), and have been providing music for the Orange County Business Journal Award dinners and luncheons for over 6 years. Along with my one-man-band format, I can also add a sax/flute man for the Rick Sherman Duo, and add a drummer to that for the Rick Sherman Trio, and expand up to my 6-piece band, which includes myself, 2 sax men, guitarist, drummer, and female vocalist. When I am hired for a private party, my number one priority is to do everything I can do to make sure that everyone has a great time! I enjoy what I do, and I sincerely enjoy helping create a celebratory, fun, joyful, memorable event for everyone in attendance.
