Rich Wilson has been a paid professional entertainer since the age of 15.
He began getting fees to sing at community events while still attending high school. As time went on, the demand for his performances gave him the opportunity to share the stages with some very major acts from around the country. His unique ability to stand before any sized audience and be completely relaxed gave the impression of being a seasoned veteran of the spotlight and that helped to open even more doors. He has performed from the stages of Las Vegas to Atlantic City and just about everything in between! Rich now lives in the Southern Tier of the state of New York with his wife, Amy and their children and Rich continues to bring his special form of entertainment to audiences everywhere.
Rich is probably best known for his remarkable ability to sing Elvis Presley songs and get people on their feet with applause. This has always been a strong part of his performances but not the only thing he does. His special ability to sing a wide variety of styles of music allows him to adapt to almost any situation he may come across. Standards like those sung by Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin and more are also the songs that Rich has mastered over the years.
He tends to almost sound like each artist that originally did the songs. Country music has been a major and fun area for Rich to sink his teeth into because he says his father raised him on the classic country music of artists like Eddy Arnold and Hank Williams so it is only natural that Rich can throw himself into a cowboy hat and take us back to the golden days of the Grand ol' Opry. Gospel music is also an area that Rich has done very well at. As a matter of fact, his gospel recordings are among his best selling. It is the music of the 50's and the 60's that Rich does the most and he does them very well. No matter what performance to take in by Rich Wilson you are almost certain to experience songs originally recorded by artists like Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Pat Boone, The Platters and many, Many More!
Recently, Rich found himself drawn to another form of entertainment and just as he has done so many times before, he has worked at it until he is naturally comfortable with it on stage. Rich is now a certified Stage Hypnotist. This is one of the most popular forms of entertainment today. It is enjoyable for both the audience and the volunteers and because it involves members right out of the audience it is very interactive. Due to the popularity of such things as video games and Karaoke, people are almost conditioned today to be "involved" in almost everything they see. Hypnosis can be a very personal and private thing but when it comes to Comedy Stage Hypnosis...everyone is involved and every one shares in the fun!
