Dear Richard,

How We Miss Your Music! NOYC (New Orleans Yacht Club) was fortunate to have you playing during our weekly dinners. That old piano sounded in tune as you made even our meager menu taste grand.
You knew exactly what tempo and tune to play as the dinner crowd changed throughout the evening. We heard Up-tempo for the young families and old favorites when the dinning hall changed to the "older" group.

It is a shame that Katrina ruined everything, but the memories. How we would all like to turn the clock back to those dinners and your music. Perhaps others will read this and bring you aboard their dinner program to create new memories. Feel free to refer any and all to me at anytime for an endorsement of a great entertainer...Richard The Piano Guy.

Cocktail parties

Richard “the piano guy” has played at several of my Holiday parties. He has always done a wonderful job. He has a unique way of entertaining that allows guests to enjoy his terrific music and still take part in the conversations of the party. I recommend “the piano guy” to anyone who is considering entertainment at their next cocktail party or whatever kind of gathering.

This gentleman was (and is) exactly what we were looking for in an entertainer for our dinner parties. My wife and I have always loved to cook for and serve small groups (6-12) of guest in our home.

We heard Richard playing at a restaurant a couple of years ago and enjoyed it very much. We talked with him during his break and hired him for an upcoming dinner party that we were hosting. He came to our home, brought all the necessary equipment with him and did an absolutely outstanding job providing the crowning touch to our gathering.

That first party with Richard as our entertainment went extremely well and we’ve tried to have him play at others parties that we’ve hosted. Richard is a true professional, as his performances show. We would recommend Richard and his music to anyone who wants to add that "special touch" to their function!

Richard has been playing the piano at Allen Memorial Home for a little over a year now and we absolutely love him! He has been playing for our Wine and Cheese Party monthly and has also played for a few other events we’ve held here at the Allen. He plays a variety of music that dates back to our Resident’s younger years. If you have the opportunity to hear him play you should check him out.

Thanks for your time and dedication Richard!
