Richard was a total delight. The party was for my A 90th birthday party for my mother but my high school and college aged kids were there with their friends and absolutely everyone loved him. He played multiple instruments and was extremely charming ! My family will definitely recommend him. He is a super talented man!

Richard played the banjo at my Labor Day weekend wedding. The church was a short walk from the venue, so we wanted to have our guests work in a sort of procession/parade. Richard led the procession playing the banjo and signing and was perfect for the event! He was easy to work with, prompt, and got rave reviews from our guests.

Richard was a delight to work with and helped to make our 50th anniversary party special for our guests. He was responsive, flexible, well prepared, on time, an excellent square dance teacher and enthusiastic with the group without being over bearing. He was good at sensing the needs of our guests--from children to folks in their 70s, and accompanied himself on banjo and sang during dinner and other break times. We would recommend him with enthusiasm and would certainly call on him again. Thank you Richard!
