Hi there!

My name is Rick VanderKleijn. I moved to Los Angeles in 2009 to record my debut album in the Paramount Recording Studios.
I have had the privilege to perform with many of the worlds greatest musicians and record in some of the very best studios that exist.

Next to writing, recording and performing my original material I really enjoy playing cover songs for different types of events. My favorite is the interaction with the audience that comes with it :)

I have a lot of experience performing live in both smaller intimate settings and large venues.
I've performed in many of the most prestigious luxury hotels in the US. I performed several times for the prestigious private members "The Echelon Club" and I get hired regularly for private parties, corporate events and weddings/cocktail parties.
I currently have a weekly residency at both the Pelican Hill Resort in Laguna and the St. Regis Monarch Beach in Dana Point.

I play songs from such artist like Sinatra to Coldplay and frankly anything in between, may it be a ballad or a swinging uptempo such as "Brown Eyed Girl" (Van Morrison) or "Take it Easy" (Eagles). I truly play and sing almost anything, whether it relates to the fifties, sixties or a popular song currently played on the radio.

What can I provide for your event?
I am able to create a classy and/or fun ambiance and interact with your guest accordingly to make sure they feel good and entertained. And if the vibe is right, at your discretion, I'll even have your guest sing along to some classic hits!

Of course, if there's any song that you would like to hear in particular for your event just let me know and I'll learn those songs.

I'm looking forward to being a part of your event!

Best,

Rick

Rick did a live performance of my first dance song "All of me" at my wedding and made that moment for my husband and I magical! His performance was beautiful and he completed my request spot on! I asked for him to collaborate with a violinist for the song, and he found a great musician who was able to play with him flawlessly. Overall super happy with his talent and he was very easy to work with!

Rick was such a wonderful pianist and vocalist to have at our wedding in Santa Barbara at the Four Seasons Resort, The Biltrmore. There are so many great things to say about his performance... Not only did he show up early and dressed appropriately, he learned the music that was requested by our Armenian priest for the ceremony and he also learned the UB40 version of our first dance request. His voice and piano playing skills were fantastic and we could not be happier with his services at our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and our first dance. So many people complimented his songs and we gladly recommend him.
