About Rich Sings Swing
If you are thinking of booking entertainment for your wedding, corporate event, private party, gastro pub, restaurant, golf dinner, masonic function or charity event - Richard has a wealth of experience in all these areas across Yorkshire, Lancashire and the UK. Richard is passionate about music and has a wide & varied taste.
However swing music is his real obsession – on hearing ‘Live at The Sands’ for the first time, recorded by Sinatra with Count Basie & his Orchestra, Richard’s love of classic swing was ignited. When Richard first turned professional singer, big band/swing music was the obvious choice, with the emphasis on Frank Sinatra standards along with songs associated with Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jnr, Bobby Darin, Andy Williams, Nat King Cole among others. Additionally Richard sang songs made famous by more contemporary artists such as Michael Buble, Harry Connick Jnr and many of the songs on Robbie Williams album ‘Swing When You’re Winning’ and more recently ‘Swings Both Ways’. Richard believe's that whilst the sound & voice are clearly important, so is the ability to work with and engage an audience and have fun. This is his favourite part of the job, "it doesn't get better than playing with the audience, apart from seeing a full dance floor!"
In addition to his performing Rich can be seen as a Supporting Artist on many TV Drama's and Films such as Emmerdale, Little Boy Blue, Swallows and Amazons, Rich also was the winner of Come Dine With Me Huddersfield - despite that he stresses he can't actually cook!
He performs at a wide variety of events including weddings, corporate events, private parties, gastro pubs and many ticketed swing events at venue's such as Betty's Tea Rooms in York and Harrogate, Sasso Italian Restaurant every month, 315 Bar and Restaurant, Whitley Hall Hotel and many more.
