About
I play banjo, mandolin, ukulele, guitar, bagpipes, pennywhistle & harmonica. I have a strong tenor singing voice and perform with Irish, Scottish, Dixieland, Country, Bluegrass, Hawaiian and Italian bands. I have performed on Broadway, the Kennedy Center, on PBS TV's Shining Time Station and at theaters, schools and concert halls from New Jersey to Alaska. Tap dancing, Irish step dancing, clog dancing, rope spinning, hat tricks, juggling, acting, and storytelling are some of my other skills.
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.

SONG LIST: My repertoire includes: Irish vocal and instrumental music, Bagpipe tunes, vintage and contemporary Country songs, Bluegrass music, Italian songs, Hawaiian songs, Dixieland melodies from the 20's and 30's, Swing tunes from the 40's and 50's, Broadway show tunes, Folk music from the 60's and 70's, Beatles songs, Pop, Rock and Blues from the 70's, 80's and 90's and children's songs.. I also sing a few songs in Yiddish, Spanish and German. Let me know what you are interested in and I will email you the appropriate list.

I easily gave Richard 5 starts across the board!! He is extremely talented, very kind, and professional. He arrived right on time and was fantastic to work with. Everyone at my event really enjoyed his music, singing, dancing, and energy. I would highly recommend Richard and am looking forward to booking him again.

I arranged for Richard to focus on bluegrass and Irish music for my party... and he came through wholeheartedly! He and his associate were very professional and talented... and played a variety of tunes that my guests thoroughly enjoyed. Very satisfied with their performance... would definitely consider again.

I was extremely pleased with Richard Stillman's performance. He arrived about one hour early to arrange his numerous instruments and "set the stage" for his absolutely wonderful performance! He is a true professional and quite a music "Renaissance Man!"

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.
