Professional DJ & Karaoke services available for all occasions or events in the Tampa Bay and surrounding areas up to 120 mile radius. I can DJ alone or also add in karaoke at no extra charge. I have been a musician/entertainer/singer all of my adult life and have been a DJ hosting karaoke full time since 2002. I have done hundreds of events and everyone has always been very pleased with my service.
I have an all pro PA system, Up to 5 wireless mikes for group singers, announcements, toasts, or speeches. I have a professional stage lighting system to make things look good. I have a huge song library both DJ music & karaoke songs that are updated monthly. I look forward to hearing from you.
Richie was amazing from start to finish. He worked with the state park to ensure he was in compliance for the event, even when he was asked for so much. I'm thankful for his willingness to make his customer's happy. He also showed up super early for the event and provided music as we were setting up. Our guests loved him and his music.

What to Expect
I do DJ and karaoke services much like you would see in a bar or night club. I use a laptop with external hard drive. I have a huge song library, (both regular music & karaoke tracks) that are updated monthly. I have a complete all pro PA system using Mackie 1300-watt powered Thump speakers. I also have Mackie 1600-watt powered subwoofers for added bottom end (if we need them). I can do straight DJ services alone or also include karaoke at no additional cost. I carry an onboard CD burner which allows me to record singers, speeches, vows, (anything you wish) and instantly put it on a CD. I typically do not require a deposit or contract, just your commitment is fine with me. I try to stay booked 2-3 months in advance so the longer you wait to book me, the less likely I'm available. My fee is not written in stone, I can be flexible if I have to, I would hate to lose business over a few dollars. Contact me NOW so we can talk it over. You won't be disappointed!
My name is Richie Hodge, I has a very rich musical heritage, My father, Bobby Hodge was a featured singer on the Grand Ole Opry. My brother, Bob Jr. is an accomplished drummer. I've been a musician/entertainer all of my adult life. I started out playing bass guitar with his father's band on weekends at the Maverick Lounge in Oldsmar Fl back in 1978. Since that time, I have performed with numerous bands at countless clubs & venues. I have had the opportunity to work with bands who opened for major acts such as Steve Wariner, Johnny Paycheck, Kitty Wells, Charly McClain, David Frizzell, Lynyrd Skynyrd, David Lee Roth, Daryl Singletary, Mark Collie, and others. I have also performed with national acts such as Nashville Recording Artist Melba Montgomery, RFD Television's Penny Gilley from the Penny Gilley Show, Reba's youngest sister Susie McEntire and also Dennis Lee who tours the US and Canada performing at major fairs and festivals.
My parents owned several night clubs in the bay area over the years. Namely, The Longhorn Saloon in Tampa. It was there that my father bought a karaoke system where I would host karaoke nights. This went on for several years and the shows were always a popular event at the club. This is when I learned the craft of being a DJ and hosting karaoke while also performing as a musician. I have since invested in more equipment and a substantial library of songs. I am new to Gigsalad but not new to DJing and hosting karaoke. I have done 100s of parties & events of all kinds. Reviews can be provided. I have the experience to help make your event a success! Give me a call and let's talk it over!
