Weddings and Parties

Whether it’s for a family party or your clubs and friends, Richy can get you in the mood to enjoy your event.

With his massive repertoire, Richy will survey the audience and select a set of songs that will provide something for everyone.

The Music

Everybody knows the Monkees, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Mannfred Mann and their Doo Wah Diddy has everybody singing along.

Throw in a few Ballroom Dances with Nat King Cole, Matt Monroe or Perry Como, then some good old Country & Western songs for Line Dancing and for everybody to sing along with.

A good selection of Disco style music and some rousing sixties songs from the Searchers, Herman’s Hermits and so many of our other favourites - who remembers Frank Ifield and Ricky Nelson.

The evening wouldn’t be the same without a bit of rock & Roll to liven up the proceedings, before we settle down to a few songs like Chris de Burgh’s Lady in Red, Eric Clapton’s Wonderful Tonight and a couple of John Lennon songs like Imagine and Jealous Guy.

There is always a family member that wants to do their bit, so Richy has a full Karaoke system setup for your enjoyment.

Formal Dine & Dance

Richy’s program is ideal for the Cabaret circuit, with his covers of all the major recording artists he really does cover the entire spectrum of musical tastes, from Dean Martin to Chuck Berry and from the Cascades (Rhythm of the Rain) to the Kinks, one extreme to the other, yet ready to find the most surprising tracks on request.

For the more formal events, it is possible to select exactly which songs to sing at any time and to fit in with the prescribed program, making it easy for the host to ensure that the event runs smoothly.

Flexibility and innovation are strong points that enable Richy to react to unfolding dramas in real time, so that your guests enjoy a seamless flow of entertainment.
