About
Rich Patton (affectionately known as "The Blue Crooner") sings and plays guitar. He also doubles on blues harmonica and tenor saxophone. He uses a loop station, which allows him to digitally record his accompaniment during performances. At the press of a pedal, the accompaniment will repeat allowing him to step back and play solos on the guitar, blues harmonica and saxophone adding variety to this one-man show. Rich is a recently retired educator but playing and performing music is his passion.

Rich loves to play the blues, R&B, baby-boomer favorites, country, old rock n' roll, jazz, classic favorites, slide guitar and special songs improvised for people in the audience. Tell him about birthdays as the standard "Happy Birthday" will be followed by an improvised, unique "birthday song". Bring the kids because he also does special songs and games that children love. He also loves to play and perform in classrooms with children.

Rich is great with audiences and connects quickly with people of all ages. His act is lively and fun. He is dependable, accommodating and will work well with clients and staff. He performs for a wide range of venues including nightclubs, wineries, breweries, festivals, children events, schools, retirement centers and much more. He has performed in several different states and countries.

Rich was hired to perform during the cocktail hour of my daughters wedding reception. He was a wonderful surprise for my guests. Unfortunately, during the transition of Rich playing and the DJ taking over there was an unexpected power outage. We had nothing-no DJ, no photobooth, no lighting besides the few candles on the tables - and I had no "plan B". Without even asking, Rich continued to play guitar in the dark. He made his way around the hall and entertained each table - enticing them to sing along or just play. My guests loved him! Rich went above and beyond - extremely professional, entertaining, and I would recommend him for any occasion. Thank you Rich!
