There is not enough space to write about all of Richard's wonderful musical qualities and his super positive personality. He works extremely hard and with passion in all his music projects and performances and has a heart of pure gold. He can play a wide range of musical genres and is never phased by requests for people's favourites. He can play live or produce great quality videos to suit the occasion. Very flexible, being able to play the piano and the organ to a very high standard, complemented by his compere Rowan, they make a perfect team. Always pleases his audience, with a big smile, great sense of humour and plays the music perfectly, Richard is definitely our number one choice!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Music has a powerful way of getting under our skin. Music subconsciously affects our mood, energy levels, memory recall and even behaviour. It can heighten our sense of connection to people, experiences and spaces – even businesses. Here at R&R Entertainments we’re determined to understand your event.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Venues I have performed in the past are; Various churches for weddings, funerals and services.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

The artists I am influenced by are; Andre Rieu James Last

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

The most highest profile gig I’ve performed at is Atlantic Tower - Thistle Hotel - Liverpool for the 175 years of Cunard

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

“Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

“Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument to play or I can play any instrument in situ.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
