    The band members were very generous with their time. Played every song requested and even learned a song we requested.

    Richard played acoustic guitar for our recent ceremony on the beach! His music was awesome, and we got many compliments afterwards! He was always quick to respond and professional. It was a pleasure working with him, and we would highly recommend!

    Richard and Tommy were fantastic! My guests raved about how great they were! Richard was quick to respond to emails and was very helpful in planning the music for my wedding and reception. He even learned a new song we had requested him to play for our first dance. I would highly suggest Richard for your wedding! Live music definitely makes your special day even more memorable!

    I can't speak highly enough of Richard Stratton and the Palmetto Catz. Richard played the guitar and sang for our ceremony and cocktail hour and then the rest of the band joined in for the reception. Richard was incredibly easy to work with and even learned a song (and re-wrote a few of the lyrics!) for the father-daughter dance. Everyone raved about how much fun the reception was and it was largely due to the band's ability to "read the crowd" and play songs that everyone enjoyed. I didn't specify any songs other than our first dance and dances with our parents. They were also very flexible, having to be moved around quite a bit because of weather and they never complained a bit, just kept on singing and playing and having a great time!

    The music at my wedding was beautiful, and Richard was a dream to work with! I was worried because I waited quite late to book the music--I contacted Richard by phone about three weeks before the wedding. Richard responded to my call within the first fifteen minutes of placing the call. He was so kind, and immediately said he could do it. I was so relieved! Then about ten days before the wedding I wanted to change the music from a duo to a trio, and again, Richard graciously accommodated my request, no problem! I would highly recommend his services to anyone for any occasion! It was worth every penny! Thank you, Richard!?

    Richard and his trio were GREAT! They performed the music during my wedding ceremony and it was fantastic!

    Minutes before the start of the ceremony it started to rain so Richard had to quickly move everything inside and it did not take long for him to get everything set up to perform inside. His flexibility to move indoors and the speed at which he was able to set up so that the ceremony could still start on time was truly remarkable.

    Richard was such a nice guy and so great to work with throughout my wedding planning process. Thanks, Richard!!

    What can I say. Richard is a wonder classical guitatist and the ceremony was elegant. His band The Palmetto Cats was jamming all night. They were able to read the crowd and played just the right music to keep the dance floor full. He is so delightful to work with... a true professional.

    Rick and the rest of the Palmetto Catz did a fantastic job at our wedding on Jekyll Island. They were perfect for the reception room and were able to change tone and tempo at the appropriate moments. They had a great song selection played everything we requested in advance of our wedding. Thank you so much for making our experience that much better!

    Richard's solo guitar was the perfect addition to our small beach ceremony. He had excellent suggestions for coordinating the music and answered all of our questions. Many of our guests commented on how Richard's music tied everything together into an amazing experience - we give our highest recommendation! Go ahead and book!

    Richard was very professional and prompt when responding to all emails, even with changes that needed to be made a few days before the wedding. He let me choose all the songs that were played for the ceremony and gave some suggestions when I was a little overwhelmed with options. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a guitarist for their wedding that will make the process easy and enjoyable.

    We couldn't have been more pleased with Richard Stratton and Two Katz! Everyone raved about the music that they played during our son's rehearsal dinner. Richard was also great to deal with during the planning period. You can't go wrong using him!
