R. Aguilar, San Antonio, TX
Richard: We would like to take this time to
personally thank you for the wonderful job you did helping us put on such a
memorable show with the rock band,
Your hard work and dedication really helped.
We all realize that this event would not have been
possible without your expertise, guidance and recommendations. It was not only
an honor to work with you long distance, but to meet you in person. You were
always available by phone, text or email regardless of the time or day.
You have our most sincere gratitude and highest
recommendation! We would definitely recommend your services to everyone,
as well as utilizing your services ourselves, if/when we ever find ourselves
putting on another private show. This event by far exceeded our
expectations. We really appreciate all that you did to make this happen!

The Rock and Roll Society of Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
I first encountered Richard when I was looking to land a good
headliner for the Edmonton Rock Music Festival (Alberta, Canada). He sought out
the acts that I had on my original wish list, and also pitched artists that
weren't on my list but fit our particular fest vibe perfectly. We had some good
talks about the business of booking, particularly some unique issues of
cross-border bookings, and I truly believe he represented the festival's best
interests in his negotiations with artists. He ended up securing an artist for a
good market value who will fit my audience like a glove. I told him that I look
forward to having him help secure good US talent for our Canadian festival in
the coming years, and that this year was just the start of what I think will
become a mutually beneficial business partnership. And I truly meant every word.
Richard, thank you once more for your exceptional
service in representing our fest and the kids' charity it supports! I look
forward to our continued partnership.

Richard, you have been wonderful beyond words...we are all sending our heartfelt
appreciation for all you did to bring us a wonderful concert last night. The
Doobie Brothers proved to be the exact opposite of what we have come to
expect from big rock shows...I am deeply appreciative and grateful for the way
John and Gary handled things yesterday - working with us NOT ONLY to get the
band to the Meet and Greet after the show, but even to the prow of the Lady of
the Lake for a photo op!!!! What great guys...thanks so very, very much.
Please extend our deepest thanks and appreciation to the band...what a show they
gave us (even playing longer than the contract specified) with such energy...I
think they sound better than ever! They were wonderful back stage, as
well...good natured about making our stage work for them...working with our
staff...after so many years on the road they might have been difficult,
disinterested, cynical, etc., etc. There was none of that... I sang for
many years at the Metropolitan Opera in NYC before returning home and taking on
the building of Music by the Lake. I've seen many divas (and divos) over
the years...I was expecting that from The Doobies, but was wonderfully surprised
to find just the opposite. Please tell them how impressed I was over this...but
it really comes from the top down...mille grazie! Richard, we hope to see and
work with you again!
