WHAT TO EXPECT
When Richie performs as a solo act (guitar/voice), he’ll arrive at your venue on time, well-dressed, theatrically but tastefully, and be polite to you and your guests.
Richie will play the great songs of the American popular tradition, songs from the 1920s to the 1960s that people know and love: swing, showtunes, classic country and light rock. Melodies you know and can hum along with, lyrics that delight. You’ll hear a variety of grooves: ballads, swing tunes, novelty numbers, torch songs, ragtime, Broadway and pop.
Because Richie doesn’t play loud, he can be as unobtrusive as you like — your guests can still chat over the music — or he can the center of attraction, if your guests love what they hear and really want to listen.
“Richie Kaye was a tremendous help to our organization! I requested his services with less than 24 hours notice and he responded promptly with a very reasonable quote. Our VIP attendees were very impressed with the atmosphere that Richie created! He was definitely the right type of classy entertainment that we were looking for.”
–Martin F., Fortune 500 Executive
“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
“Richie Kaye was fabulous. He and his team of musicians gave my guests far more than we expected. They played exactly the music I requested and put on a wonderful education musical program. Richie went over and beyond the call of duty to deliver a extraordinary evening for us. Thumbtack, thank you so much for putting me in touch with this talented musician(s).”
–Carol K., Event Planner
“Thank you Mr. Kaye for playing at our company’s Christmas party. Working with you has been a great pleasure and I am happy that everyone enjoyed your music!”
–Sandra V., Company Executive
As a solo, Richie needs only a space 10′ x 10′ and a comfortable chair with a back and no arms. If you have a stage, that’s wonderful, but he has played in a living room, in the corner of a bar room and in the subway, so he can play just about anywhere.
