Rick Sings Over 1700 Songs in Many Music Styles

Rick is not just someone who sings…. No!

Rick is an Enthousiastic Performer. For him Singing is his PASSION ! With his very broad taste of music and his warm and bright voice, Rick sings almost any genre or style of music. Be it country, rock, pop, reggae, hard rock, funk, soul, blues, motown, acoustic, folk, jazzy, latin, easy listening… ‘the singing chameleon’

Rick is especially in his element when he can sing beautiful and melodic songs, mostly during sessions in hotels and resorts, bars, restaurants and clubs, coffee breaks or in-between meetings, for companies, receptions, product presentations, trade shows, fairs, charity events, ‘older’/more-mature-of-age people. But he is also very experienced and perfectly suited for anniversaries, jubilees and private parties, on barbecues, weddings, birthdays and swinging events. Even rock & blues bars are his domain… Talking about versatile and multiple employability

The sound level doesn’t have to be high at all. As a professional sound engineer Rick knows how to make the best sound under any circumstance and also in ‘low sound level’ events, where the public can have a normal conversation with each other without having to shout…. Rick will be ‘a pleasure to the ear’……
Rest assure that this Singer can please almost everybody with a repertoire of over 1700 songs (!) in many different styles.

To put this amount of songs in perspective: if Rick would sing 4 hours on a performance night, he could do 28 shows WITHOUT repeating one song…..! How’s that for a change?
