All you have to do is read a simple review of his care and attention to detail and professionalism to give you the confidence to book his services:

===========================================
"Richard was very accommodating throughout the entire party. He showed up early, set up, played background music as guest arrived and as the party started picking up he played to the crowd. He took feedback well, played with a smile on his face the whole night and I don't remember him taking one break the whole time. He played all the great songs sprinkling 80's with Christmas and a fantastic Billy Joel! Thanks for making the party a success and especially sticking around a bit longer to play especially for our important members who stayed for additional discussions. He switched between piano and keyboard and played both excellently. Thanks Richard!"
