My name is Rich Wardlow, I play the trumpet professionally as a solo act and also have my own classic Rock/R$B band. I can provide you with any music you would need for any event you will be having a birthday, a wedding, corporate events, funeral honors, and so much more. I can supply my solo work along with a 7 to 8 piece premier horn band playing the best of the classic rock cover tunes including, chicago, blood sweat and tears, doors, and many more cover artists. My band name is the World Famous Gashouse Gang band and you can do an internet search for more information on my band. Thank you
Rich nailed all of the high notes playing in my pit for a demanding Sondheim show.
He tried his best, however my guests and I noticed his face turning red and him running out of breath during a few sets. A couple of off tunes that was noticeable didn't go over well but it's over now. Didn't get to speak to him after the set. He was scheduled from 11:30 to 12:00pm and at 12:02 he was no where to be found.
Rich and his horn band entertained a multi-generational family party for my mom's 95th birthday. He was very accommodating on creating the set list to span the generations, including big band music, rock music and of course happy birthday. He had the 4 year olds dancing around, and the adults clapping and tapping their toes.
Mr. Wardlow, was VERY PROFESSIONAL, PLEASANT, ON TIME & DRESSED NICE. His Music was a TRUE Blessing & I WOULD DEFINITELY Love to use his Service Again, Prayerfully for My Husband & My 35th Wedding Anniversary in August 2016, I WOULD DEFINITELY Recommend his Service, you WON'T Regret it.
I cannot thank Rich enough for providing the soundtrack to the most special moment of my life. I hired Rich to play some jazz tunes as I proposed to my girlfriend in Central Park. He was incredibly friendly and very easy to communicate with, and his services are more than reasonably priced. Rich is a brilliant musician, and his beautiful trumpet really just took my proposal over-the-top. Thank you again Rich!
