I'm a classically trained virtuoso pianist who has performed on the concert stage in the US and abroad. I have also played the standards of Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, Harold Arlen, Irving Berlin, and many other composers in restaurants, lounges, country clubs, and hotels. In addition, I have played for weddings (ceremonies and cocktail hours), parties, fundraisers, corporate events, and black-tie affairs. I always show up on time, impeccably groomed and dressed to my clients' specifications. I gladly honor all special requests, and if I don't know a particular song, I purchase it and learn it. I will play for you before the event takes place, or play for you over the telephone to ensure you are completely satisfied with the music. My goal is always the same: to give 100% of myself to my clients, to have my great love of music be readily apparent, and to have my clients and their guests remember the music long after the event is over. I primarily perform solo, but can bring a singer or violinist if required.

Richard Devens was fantastic as we hired him for our office holiday party and he played piano music beautifully and he played a nice mix of holiday music and other music that was appropriate for our holiday gathering. He was also very professional and prompt and we would definitely hire him again for our next event.

Richard came on time and also brought violin player. They played as a duet many classical and more contemporary pieces. The musicians created a wonderful atmosphere for the party. All our guests enjoyed their performance. If we ever have a party of that scale, we would definitely hire them again.
