What to Expect
Crowd Participation, Singing along, and even dancing along. I go out into the crowd when I sing for I use a Cordless Mic. Depending on the Event, I sing to get the crowd into it.

I always make sure if hired, I get all the details up front specifically to cater my repertoire to the needs to make it a fun-filled event. I hope you sing, dance, clap, or relax and listen.

- HOW IT ALL CAME TO BE -
Rick Ashman Entertainment is my heartfelt, personal way of giving !
I've been singing and performing professionally for over 20 yrs in both local bands and now as a Soloist. I sing all across the Southern New England area in local area Clubs, American Legions, VFW's, and many Senior Centers & Nursing Homes playing everything from Oldies, Sing-A-Longs, Standards, Broadway Musicals, to Classic Rock to Country Music. Currently, I perform all Genres from the 40's to today's Pop and learning new Songs as I go along. Special Requests is what I love doing. Singing someone's favorite song that brings back special memories is always a pleasure for me. The bigger the crowds that come to see me, the better I perform. Music over the years in my life has taken me to places I dreamed of playing and meeting some of the warmest and kindness folks. To me Music has always been healing and when I sing, I hope that I made someone feel good inside. The responses I get when I am finished are heart warming. All the thanks and kind words just make it all more worth doing what I do. I hope you all can find the time to come see me when I'm in your neighborhoods.

Additional Booking Notes
I use Lighting only if asked - I have Dry Ice as well by request.. Most events I don't use them, but if it's a Night Party for Dancing - Well you bet I will set up the Lighting.. It really adds to making the event that more special. I have the latest in High End Speakers and Watts. Using top of the line Sound Equipment, is a given. I want the crowd to hear crystal clean sound and pro. I also use a Subwoofer if a big party. It's one of the best out there for sound today - Let me tell you this, you will feeel it right through you if you dance in front of me singing.. Booom Booom !
My Set List is never the same - I design it to the Event or Party. If a Holiday Party like Xmas - I will do a mix for example of all the Favorites you hear on the radio, and also some of the more spiritual ones you hear in church.. Dance parties - Dance Music, Country Music - all Country and some Yee Haw tunes to do se do to.. Whatever is appropriate for the function. I will say that all my gigs I end the event with a Patriotic Song out of respect. Usually, " God Bless America "... As an encore - If a Slow Song, Unchained Melody or a Ballad like, Wonderful Tonight.
Influences & Inspiration
I grew up listening to oldies groups, classic rock and country music. Groups we all know like The Beatles, Stones, and Rock groups like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and others.. As a Singer, I listened to Ballads a lot and big vocalists like Barry Manilow, Elvis, Vocal Groups like the Beach Boys, and many of the Oldies Singers, Paul Anka, Frankie Avalon, etc.. I sing them all.. Crooners - Frank, Dean Martin, Al Martino, Tony Bennett, and even artists like Jimmy Durante.. Whatever music - I took a lot from so much talent out there..
