Very talented muscians

We hired Richard for live music during our ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner. Everything was perfect. We had guitar and violin during the ceremony and cocktail hour and guitar during dinner. Richard and the violinist are very talented and he was a pleasure to work with from the beginning.

Richard is the Best!

Richard made our wedding perfect - he even learned one of our favorite songs to make our day all the more special. When returning to our venue for our 1 year anniversary, we stumbled upon him playing and he not only remembered us but player Perhaps Love for us. We’ll remember this and him forever - highly recommend him for any event.

Amazing musician and great energy

Richard Stratton did an amazing job at my wedding on 1/16/2021. He played solo for my ceremony and cocktail hour then was joined by his member Tommy (making them “Two Katz) during the reception. They kept the party going all night and I got several compliments from our guest on the quality of their music and their song selections. I had an intimate wedding with only 20 guest so I was a little concerned on music overpowering the event, but Richard knows how to read the room and match the music to the energy. I would highly recommend him for any of your music needs wedding or otherwise!!
