Michael Jackson Tribute Artist / Impersonator
Rico is the King of all MJ Tribute artist / Impersonators, performing as MJ for well over 25 years he is truly the best of the best.
Rico is extremely talented. His performance was epic. From the way he gets into character to the way he makes sure everyone is having a great time. He keeps the audience involved and entertained. He has brought Michael to life for this generation of children that will never get to see him perform. I'm glad we have Rico. He is a must have for your next event.
I can't tell you how many people commented that it was the best birthday party ever! Rico did an amazing job, from his singing and dancing, to his quick costume changes. Would Definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great Michael Jackson impersonator!!
After seeing Rico perform at a neighborhood festival, we looked into hiring him for my 4 year old nephew’s birthday party. Rico did an excellent job. He was on time, put on a fun performance that entertained the adults and children alike, took pictures afterwards, and even stayed longer than expected to play music that had everyone up dancing. We greatly appreciated his involvement, and hope to someday have him for another event. The venue said my nephew’s party was the best they had ever hosted, and my nephew hasn’t been able to stop talking about “Michael Jackson” ever since.
Thank you so much, Rico. Keep up the good work!
Excellent excellent excellent! My son and I had a skating birthday party together. I got Rico Michael Jackson as a surprise Guest and the involvement with everyone was amazing! I've gotten so many compliments because of having him at my birthday party. He's so friendly and made me feel like I had my own Michael Jackson concert. Would definitely refer him and use him for any upcoming event.🤗😍 Thank you.
Rico was awesome! Entertaining as Michael Jackson and got the crowd dancing! Couldn’t have asked for anything more!
First time I ever hired a impersonator. Rico was perfect for my grandson's birthday party he is a Michael Jackson Fan. Rico didn't great job of entertaining to the whole party everybody enjoyed them. I would definitely recommend Rico he was great thank you.
Response from Rico as Michael Jackson:
Thank you Jesse, but check your post, you said Rico didn't great job, tho I understood what you meant
Rico MJ performed for over 200 Girl Scouts as they celebrated Indiana history. Rico was amazing, on time, amazing, professional, amazing, interactive. Did I mention he was amazing? We had girls aged 5 - 60, and they all got up and danced, skipped around with the werewolf and thoroughly enjoyed the show! Rico stayed for about an hour talking with the girls, taking photos and signing autographs. We even convinced him to take a hayride with some of the girls!
Rico drove from Chicago to Indianapolis for this performance, and I would have him again! Thank you, Rico, for making this event so memorable for so many little girls, and big ones too!

Rico as Michael is awesome. Dancing was on point and great interaction with the crowd. We had space constraints and he made creative use of what was available. Such great energy! Stayed after performance to take pictures with everyone. Exceptional performance and professionalism. Will definitely have him again. Highly recommended!!!
Rico performed at my Wedding on July 17, 2016 (which was my b-day as well). He was on time and all my guest loved his performance. He actually did more songs than we expected. Everyone keeps talking about that awesome slide he did on the floor, wow! Great job man, I would totally recommend you to anyone who wants a professional and talented performer. Thanks!
Rico was awesome as always, the family loved his performance and how he worked the room, we just wished we had more of his performance. Although Rico was late I understood he was coming from another performance. I would hire Rico again.
I have used him in the past and he was fantastic, however, at times even the best tend to "slack". I feel I should be fair in this matter and mention that he showed up one hour late. After the performance, he left abruptly. 2 things in our contract were not as we agreed. In defense to Rico, he did credit me a portion of the event for his negligence. Overall, the crowd loved him.
Response from Rico as Michael Jackson:
Very true, nevertheless we had an awesome time.. One thing about being the best at what you do, you are always in demand and eeveryone want a piece of you, that's the reason I was late and left early, I had an event b4 I got there and had another one afterwards, I just have to schedule better. But I look forward to working with you again.
Rico as MJ is amazing. He has the moves down packed. He's engaging, works the crowd and he's an all around nice guy. I will definitely hire him again.
Rico just performed at my husband's 40th b'day party. Everyone had a blast and said he was amazing, I had so much fun! He's awesome and I would highly recommend him!!!
He's good with the young and the old!!!I hire him to perform at my nursing home every chance I get to get. One 90 year old resident took her long gray hair down cause she said... I GOTTA LOOK GOOD FOR MICHAEL!!! Rico is the best!!!! The picture taking and conversing with the residents is PRICELESS!!!! LUV WHAT U DO!!! Tish!
I love this fucking guy, he was the best i've ever seen
Simply amazing, there is a lot of MJ impersonators out here and I searched out tuns of them, once I came accross Rico, I was nervious cause he didn't look as much like MJ as some of the others but after talking with him, he sold me, and after his performance he sold everyone. SIMPLY AMAZING
I've worked for the Chicago Bulls for 23 years and seen coutless half time performances, but the one Rico did with the luvabulls was the best of them all. It was a blast
As far as MJ Impersonators, I don't think I'll ever see one to perform like Mr. Rico. Our guest loved him...Loved him
This guy was truly amazing, the way he interact with the guest people are still talking about it. I will book him again very soon
