Hello, I'm Richie,

I have been a professional musician for over 10 years playing all over the world.

I am the founding member of my wedding band Happy Hour and play 100+ weddings and events a year as well as my solo stuff.
Over the years i have built up a great collection of guitars and amps as well as building my own recording studio and deliver a live set with a full rich sound and great lighting as well as songs from the 60's to today's hits.

I use Bose pa systems,Taylor guitars and i am completely self contained including lighting and Dj software

I am fun,professional and reliable and promise a great show,if its a party I will use my backing tracks and party with your guests until last orders, or it may be a low key event and I can just play acoustically and blend into the surroundings…Whatever your needs I can accommodate.

I will DJ your event as well as play live so there is music all night!, This coupled with my live music sets really covers everything you need for your event!

Thanks for checking out my site!

O2Reviews:"Just wanted to say a huge thanks for Saturday night. Myself and my guests thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening and we’ve had loads of people asking after you." "Hi Richie,Just wanted to drop you an email to say a HUGE thank you for Saturday night!! You were absolutely fantastic - you really made our night perfect. Everyone keeps saying how amazing you were - Also thanks for letting the budding Take That singers take to the floor!!
We are already planning another charity event next year, so we can book you again! "Thank you Happy Hour for such an incredible set at our wedding! It really added an extra dimension to our big day.
We have had so many compliments about how good you were, you really got the party going. The video is hilarious.
I can safely say we’ll never forget how much fun we had!" Hi Richie,Not had chance to say thank you as we jetted straight off to Thailand the next day but we are back now!Just wanted to pass on our appreciation for a fantastic evening, it was a wonderful performance from the moment you arrived right through to the final song, I lost count of the amount of people who commented on how good you were and asking where we had found you! Thanks again and I will certainly be posting a reference up on the site in the next couple of days.
Oh and the pics/video were a wonderful touch, our friends and family have loved seeing them and they have given us some lovely memories ahead of receiving our day shots from the photographer.Our appreciation once again,Jason and Amy. "Hi Richie,I hope you got back ok on Saturday night. We just wanted to thank you for making our wedding evening so perfect. The music was amazing and everyone really enjoyed it. Slightly biased, but I have never been to a wedding when the dance floor has been so full for so much of the night! Looking forward to seeing the photos.Thanks againClaire and James
"I just want to say you were absolutely AMAZING at our wedding, we had the best time and we have been receiving so many messages over the past few weeks from people saying it was the best wedding they'd been to and in no small part due to how great the live music was (I have had a lot of people saying you are the best wedding singer they've ever heard and Dean and I would certainly agree!). The songs and the pace were great and so nice to see young and old on the dance floor together, everyone just loved it!
I also wanted to say thank you for you consummate professionalism from start to finish, you were so kind about the difficulties with the sound, so sorry you had to deal with that but you made it so hassle free and thank you for being so understanding. (Rest assured I have picked this up with the venue separately!)
Also thank you for learning the two tracks, they were perfect and so great (even if Dean forgot all his dance steps...) Lastly I wanted to say thank you so, so very much for letting Dean and his best man get up and perform with you, it meant so much to Dean and was a perfect end to a perfect day. Thanks again Richie, will add you on FB as think I know quite a few people who might be wanting to hire you for their birthdays/weddings now! Also I work in advertising for John Lewis and we quite often have shindigs we need a great performer for, so hopefully i'll get to enjoy your musical stylings again soon!Thanks againElinor and Dean"
"Thank you so much for your awesome set at our wedding on Saturday 28th July. Every single person commented on how great you were and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I've never seen so many of our friends jumping up and down like lunatics to a full 2 hour set, the dance floor was packed all night. Ben and I couldn't have asked for a more talented and professional musician... and a special thanks from me for the souped up version of Take That's Back For Good - I loved it, and so did everyone else (the bruises on my feet testify to that).
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to our friends and can't wait for another opportunity to book you again!
Also, on the acoustic set... We missed it due to the photos being taken but all the guests said how brilliant you were and how it added to the whole atmosphere to have live music set in those beautiful gardens. THANK YOU!"

"Richie was all we could have hoped for and more! His music was amazing, he was great fun, with infectious energy with the perfect balance of setting the atmosphere but not overtaking the evening. Our guests, literally, could not stop dancing! He made our evening reception. He listened to our requests, of what to include and what not to and created a set that was just mind blowing! Anyone wishing to book a lively and thoroughly entertaining singer need look no further - there's no question that Richie is your guy. 11 out of 10 all round!!"
