We booked Rick for our wedding ceremony and he was phenomenal! It was easy to communicate with him from the time we booked all the way up to the ceremony itself. He was very accomodating with both special requests and our timeline for the day. Rick is very talented, professional and made our wedding ceremony absolutely perfect. I would hire Rick without hesitation again if the opportunity ever presented itself.

Rick was fantastic to work with leading up to the wedding. He was very responsive and quick to communicate. He checked in frequently the months and weeks leading up to the event. He arrived at the time he said he would and I was impressed with his musical talents at our ceremony and reception. He provided a wonderful ambiance and my guests commented on his abilities. Thank you so very much.

Rick did a great job at our art opening. He is extremely organized and self sufficient in his set up and tear down, reviewed a song list ahead of time and tailored it to my requests, played beautifully, and made sure his volume was just right so that conversations were still possible anywhere in the room. Set a nice tone for our event.

Rick D. Frank was the perfect musician for our wedding ceremony. He understood the "vibe" we hoped to create as our guests arrived and was willing to work with us to learn a specific song we requested. Rick was very responsive whenever we had a question, he was extremely organized, and always on time. We really appreciated that he worked directly with our ceremony coordinator on logistics as it was one less thing we had to worry about. Most importantly, Rick was kind. It was our sense that he valued the opportunity to be with us on such a special day in our lives. Five starts all the way around!!

Frank was very professional and arrived early with all of his equipment. His music really made our cocktail event and I think our attendees enjoyed the music and overall setting. We gave him little to no direction and he did a great job at playing the right type of music for our audience. Thanks again!
