SHARI RICHARDS/RICK PURCELL DUO (Trio or Quartet)
With Shari on Vocals and Guitar and Rick doing Keyboard and Vocals, this is one of the most unique duos anywhere. The repertoire is vast; from Cole Porter and George Gershwin music to Billy Joel and Beatles music. Whether it’s Shari doing some Blues, Stevie Nicks, Janis Joplin, Etta James, Carole King, Roberta Flack, or old standards like Natalie Cole and Linda Ronstadt, or Rick’s interpretations of Van Morrison, Jimmy Buffet, Elton John, Billy Joel, Frank Sinatra or Bobby Darin. This duo is just right for cocktail/dinner parties, smaller wedding receptions or a country club or convention cocktail buffet mixer.
SOLO PIANIST/KEYBOARDIST/VOCALIST RICK PURCELL
It can be Rick doing solo background instrumental music on a piano for lunch, brunch, cocktails or dinner. Or Rick on electronic keyboard, if a piano is not available. Rick can add vocals to the solo performance just like in his duo, if the occasion requires vocals as well as instrumental music. Broadway, Jazz, Pop, Light Classical, Rick can perform whatever style piano or keyboard music that you need.
