Richard Janik is that down-to-earth, classy singer-pianist-guitarist that you always envision for your special event.
Richard is an absolute chameleon when it comes to musical genres and performance.
With his huge repertoire of songs ranging from early 1900s to 2000+, and an uncanny "instant recall", Richard's reputation for "covering all the bases" is well-earned.
All of this combined with a terrific vocal talent and depth on both piano and guitar make him one of the most appealing solo entertainers to ever come out of Canada.
Richard can do it all: Rock them, Lounge them, Jazz them, or get them singing and dancing.
