Classic Rock, songs from the fifties through the eighties. Electric, Acoustic and Keyboards with full vocal arrangements. Dance songs, ballads & standards. Great for private parties, weddings, charity events, etc.
Great musician, sounds like a whole band, we hired him for our Grand opening and he will be our go to entertainment for our events from here on out. Love this performer, great music. Will definitely use him again.
My wife and I hired Richard Christopher to perform at our home for a private party of about 30 people. He was on time, did his set up which was in a tight spot, and performed every song we requested and then some. His voice is rich and pleasant to listen to. He played many favorites as well as his own compositions. We especially liked his song I LOVE YOU. We would highly recommend him.

What to Expect
What to expect depends largely upon the type of event for which I am performing.
Typically I arrive one to one and one half hour prior to event starting time, setup, perform sound checks and prepare for guests arrival.
The sets are geared toward the type of atmosphere the client requires and start at a slower pace to allow guests to settle in and get comfortable.
If there are any announcements, I am happy to make them and the hosts or distinguished guests are welcome to use my microphone for toasts, speeches or simply to welcome or thank everyone.
