In addition to the band work, I have several music/storytelling/tap dance programs that I perform at festivals, theatres, schools, and family concerts.

My show, "The Spirit of Vaudeville" won the BEST CONCERT AWARD at the United Solo Theater Festival 2014 in NYC.

We hired Richard and his band for our wedding in October 2016. Richard was really easy to communicate with and had a brilliant songlist which we then selected some tunes from. We asked Richard if he could play the bride down the aisle, and chose Shenandoah which he then played absolutely fantastically. Richard and the band then played music over the next 2 hours and it was really good. The most common thing wedding guests said to us was how good the band was - my only regret is we didn't have more of Richard and his band, they were terrific and I would recommend them to everyone for all occasions.

I would highly recommend Richard Stillman. He did a wonderful job playing at my sons' Communion party. He was entertaining, and the music was lively but not too loud. He accompanied my two Irish dancers beautifully. He arrived early and was set up well before my guests arrived, He has a lovely personality and looked and acted professionally. I received many compliments from my guests. My guests truly enjoyed the entertainment. It made the party fun & memorable.
