Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 29, 2019From Pewaukee, WI

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 D. Frank:

Liz & John, it was a pleasure and great fun to play for you and your guests. You made it easy. Thanks for your kind words and best wishes for your life together. All the best, Rick D Frank

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 D. Frank:

Thank YOU. It was fun playing for you and for your guests at such a charming event. All the best to you both.

Art Gallery OpeningReviewed on February 3, 2017From Winnetka, IL

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 was quick to reply to emails and very amenable to song requests. He has a wide repertoire and I would definitely use him again in the future.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on May 28, 2016From Lake Forest, IL

Rick did a fantastic job at our party. All guests enjoyed his music. Rick played a variety and accommodated a few songs that we discussed in advance which was perfect. I am very happy we got Rick for this job and I highly recommend to hire him if you would like to have a true professional at your party!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on May 23, 2015From Chicago, IL

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!!

Rick D. Frank:

Kristen, Thanks for your kind review. It was fun working with you and Justin and I'm glad we had such great weather for your big day. All the best to you both.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on September 20, 2016From Chicago, IL

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!

WeddingReviewed on September 3, 2016From Warsaw, IN

Rick was a true professional – despite a hiccup with a power outlet not working, Rick adjusted and came up with a plan b and found a way to make it work. The ceremony was beautiful, and his presence really added to the event. At our reception, many of our guests commented how much they loved Rick's music and song selection. Everything was perfect and we are extremely happy that we chose Rick to perform at our wedding! Thank you Rick!

Review by Libby B.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on July 17, 2013From Milwaukee, WI

Rick was super easy to deal with and laid back. He was responsive and prompt. He is definitely a professional in every sense of the word. In our particular case, his music provided a backdrop to networking function. It was never overpowering but added a lot to the atmosphere. I would recommend him highly for this type of event.

Rick D. Frank:

Libby, Thank you for the opportunity to play guitar for your company’s networking event. It was a fun gathering and several people were very generous with compliments about my music. And I really appreciate your review of my playing too. All the best,Rick

CelebrationReviewed on December 5, 2014From Evanston, IL

Rick was very easy to work with, made great music choices that were perfect for my event and everyone loved the live music. I wish he could have played for a little longer as the party kept going further into the night... ; )

Rick D. Frank:

Thanks, Lindy. It was a fun group to play for and I' glad I could help create the fun.

Review by Sara F.

WeddingReviewed on December 7, 2014From Chicago, IL

Rick was one of the first vendors we hired over a year ago. He was prompt in responding to emails, professional and very accommodating. Even my coordinator commented to me how great and easy he was to work with! He learned a song to play at our ceremony by request 'I Will' and I cried the whole way down the aisle. I would not hesitate to recommend Rick; he was a pleasure to work with and made our special day all the more special. Thank you Rick!

Rick D. Frank:

Hi Sara, I'm glad you enjoyed my playing. You and Erik and your guests were a great group and I had a great time playing for you all during your ceremony AND cocktail hour.

Review by Wesley T.

WeddingReviewed on July 21, 2012From Chicago, IL

Working with Rick was an absolute joy! We worked together to create a collection of songs for him to play while guests waited for our ceremony to begin. These were all chosen from his standard repertoire. He also arranged one new song to be used for our recessional. Rick was kind, courteous and professional. He was at the venue and prepared to play before the wedding party. He made sure to inquire about our dress code well in advance and played an integral part in our ceremony. It would not have been the same without him. I could not recommend him enough!

Rick D. Frank:

E-mail from Wesley: Most importantly, I wanted to thank you for being our ceremony musician. The selections and performance were perfect! I remember waiting for guests to arrive and my ears would perk up and I would smile a bit each time you started a new song. And of course, I'll never forget Here, There, Everywhere. I didn't realize what a powerful song that would turn out to be. Again, we thank you so much for everything.Wes Wesley: Thanks for your kind words. It was a pleasure to play for you and Nicole and your guests. Best wishes to you both. Rick

This is the second time that we heard Rick D. Frank's guitar playing at Woman Made Gallery. It definitely added to the ambiance of our Dinner Party, and made our guests feel good. We hope that he likes us as much as we like him!

Rick D. Frank:

Beate: I really enjoyed playing for you and your guests at the Dinner Party and I appreciate your kind words and theirs too. I look forward to playing for you all again sometime. Thank you, Rick

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 12, 2015From Chicago, IL

Rick was a wonderful addition to our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He was professional, kind and flexible and his music was lovely. He learned a song for our processional and it was beautiful. I would highly recommend Rick's work to anyone for their wedding ceremony.

Review by Larry A.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on August 3, 2014From Naperville, IL

Rick was very professional, very punctual, respectful, and most accommodating. He made sure we were happy with the volume level which was kept at the appropriate level for this event. His selection of music had a great mix keeping both young and old satisfied and many positive comments were passed on to us re: his talents. I was also impressed with Rick's communication skills. I always knew he had us in mind and was anticipating being at our event which was one less item on that check list that we had to worry about. With Rick there was no doubt that we were at the top of his list. I would highly recommend Rick to anyone for both his talents and responsiveness.

Rick D. Frank:

Larry, I had a great time at playing for you and your guests. Thanks for your generosity and kind words and the positive comments of your guests. Best wishes to the Happy Couple. Rick

Review by Abby V.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on September 21, 2013From Three Oaks, MI

Rick was easy to work with, and sounded great. Songs weren't in the exact order requested, but it worked out.

Rick D. Frank:

Hi Abby, Thanks for your kind words about my playing and professionalism. Several guests also complimented me after the ceremony. It was a pleasure to play for you and your guests. On the SONG ORDER, after I finished playing,the Wedding Planner/Director, Holden, appologized to ME for giving me mixed and confusing signals about starting specific songs. So I guess we share that mix up.
