About the Event
Knowing Richard personally for many years he has become one of my favorite singer song writers any where. A teacher by profession, a singer by training and a humanitarian by choice. Richard writes in that prolific style similar to Jason Isbell, Jackson Brown, John Prine and Bob Dylan. The stories he weaves are honest and believable and the melodies well thought out. Richard will bring to the stage his long time bass player Tyler Rangle and after twenty plus years of harmony singing blends voices as only skilled craftpersons can do. Baked up by Steve Randall on guitar, Dave Dussen organ, piano and voice, Larry Schiavone & Charlie Serrano drums. An A plus team for sure. Richard is one of Sacramento's treasures and to hear him in a concert setting at The Side Door is a perfect way to experience his extraordinary singing and music talents
