Light, upbeat melodies Americans know and love from the 1920s to the 1960s, performed in a variety of styles: swing, Latin, ballad. novelty, torch songs, showtunes, New Orleans and many more. Music that's easy to listen to and enjoy. We don't play loud, so your guests can still chat while the music plays or sit and listen if they choose. We want your guests to have a good time among themselves and we'd love to be a part of it. Please consider booking us for your Christmas party (listen to Jingle Bell Rock below).
As heard on jazzradio.com! Our album, "A NYC Subway Christmas" is now featured on Pandora.
Response from Richie Kaye's Music & Mirth:
Thank you. It was an honor and a pleasure to play for you both on your special day.
Richie Kaye and his team of musicians played for my gathering and were fabulous. They delivered far more than I expected. In addition to background music, they presented an musical educational program my guests loved. The Richie Kaye trio was truly extraordinary.
Richie came to perform for "The Roaring 20's" celebration we had here at the Senior Living community I work at. He did such a wonderful job and even gave a little background on each song before he sang it. We can't wait to have him back here soon!!
Response from Richie Kaye's Music & Mirth:
Dear Leigh Ann, I'm so pleased your residents and you enjoyed themselves! I would be delighted to play for you all again. In music & mirth, Richie
The performance was great and I was very glad to find Mr. Kaye for our Birthday Social. My scheduled entertainer cancelled one week before the event, so I was in a jam. The price was more than my budget, but under the circumstances I had no choice.
Price Range: $400 and up. Let's talk!

What to Expect
When we perform as a duo (guitar/voice with clarinet/saxophone), your guests will see two polite gentlemen dressed well, theatrically but tastefully, in a handsome suit, dress pants and shiny shoes. Both will be smiling and eager to please.
You'll hear the great songs of American tradition people know and love from the 1920s to the 1960s. Melodies you can hum along with, lyrics that delight. You'll hear a variety, too: ballads, swing numbers, novelty songs, rag, Broadway, hits and obscurities.
Because we don't play loud, we can be as unobtrusive as you like -- your guests can still chat over the music -- or the center of attraction, if your guests love what they hear and really want to listen.
"Couldn't be happier with Richie's performance or professionalism. He called me day of performance to double check the details, navigated his way to a hard to find location, arrived early for load in, quickly set up and was in position for an on time start. High marks for musical chops, wonderful selection of favorites, and a great attitude throughout. Handled our last minute, on the fly changes in the evening's schedule with grace and aplomb. He really delivered the goods."
--Doug H., Business Owner
"Thank you Mr. Kaye for playing at our companies Christmas party. Working with you has been a great pleasure and I am happy that everyone enjoyed your music!"
--Sandra V., Company Executive

Additional Booking Notes
As a duo, we need only a space 10' x 10'. If you have a stage, that's wonderful, but we have played in a living room, in the corner of a bar room and in the subway, so we can play just about anywhere.
We prefer to play with only one small guitar amplifier, requiring an AC outlet within 10 feet of the playing area. For larger venues, a microphone and a small vocal amp may be used. If you have a house P/A, we will be pleased to use that.
