Available Solo, Duo, Trio.
"Although my music is fresh and new, it comes from a very traditional place. I'm a Jazz Musician. Like others before me, I interpret songs and not just the Sinatra era tunes (which I could sing all night) but I pull from the post '60's songbook, new standard that with which were all familiar .
Standing on the shoulders of giants, we are forging a new path... a natural evolution of the of the music."
"Richard performs at Bliss Restaurant seasonally. He is professional, positive and entertaining. His expansive play list is a great compliment to the overall dining experience at the restaurant. Our guests love him! We love him!"
