About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

I will ensure that your event is a success! I play a wide variety of music from today's most popular artists including Jack Johnson, Train, Jason Mraz and more, as well as Classic Rock, 80's, Country and R&B. I strive to create an original style, and always play from the heart. I create unique acoustic interpretations of your favorite tunes. I perform as a solo acoustic act, but can also play with a percussionist in a duo or with a bass and percussionist in a trio. Each instrumentation has a very natural laid back acoustic vibe. NO prerecorded music or tracks! I have video and audio samples available. Please take a listen. I have over 35 years of performing experience and have regular gigs at local hotels, restaurants, and other venues. I write and perform original music as well as covers. I am available for wedding ceremonies, rehearsal dinners, cocktail hours, corporate events, bars and restaurants in Tampa bay and the surrounding area. I have the experience to adjust to specific needs for your event. I carry top notch equipment to fit the volume and energy level needed for each event, from soft background music to high energy party atmosphere. ** I carry a battery powered PA system for wedding ceremonies on the beach, or any location where electricity is not available. This includes a microphone to amplify the ceremony if requested. ** I have a large repertoire of songs and the set list for your event can be customized to meet your needs!

Engagement PartyReviewed on November 14, 2015From Tarpon Springs, FL

Rick was great for our backyard engagement party! He has a large variety of music in his repertoire and my guests gave tons of compliments and we're asking where I found him. A lot of people made sure to grab his card at the end of the night, just in case they were ever in need of some live acoustics. I would definitely higher Rick again!

WeddingReviewed on March 1, 2014From Dade City, FL

Rick was professional, courteous, and very receptive to our needs for our laid back, rustic brunch wedding in the woods. Numerous guests (many of whom are big music lovers) commented on how much they loved him, and many shared they were so glad we hired a "real musician". We requested specific songs for our processional and recessional, and he played them beautifully (Train's "MarryMe" and Van Morrison's "Into the Mystic"). It was a perfect, beautiful day, and Rick had a large part in ensuring our vision came to life. If you are considering hiring a musician versus going with an ipod (as we were)... do it and hire Rick. You will not regret it.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on October 21, 2011From Tampa, FL

Rick was amazing!!! He was completely professional showing up before my event manager was even there. He braved the freezing weather and played every song I asked for and then some my guests requested. He was so polite and extremely talented, I would recommend Rick to everyone/anyone who is looking for an amazing artist to enhance and entertain a great party!!! Thanks again Rick!!!!!
