A True Professional. Richie Made the Party!
Richie was absolutely fantastic. He has a unique ability to read the crowd and give them the music that fits just right at any moment. The Karaoke side of things was perfect. He had people that had never sang before up and singing as if they were the greatest singers in the world! (I think we created at least a few monsters ;))
Thank you Richie for a great event. Can't wait to book you again.

Carolyne C
"Richie’s services are wonderful! I hired him to be a DJ and do karaoke at my birthday party. He was experienced, competent & flexible. He had every song we wanted, the sound system was fantastic, and he had the perfect suggestions to keep the party going. We had so much fun that we asked him to stay late, he was more than happy to do so."

Jacob A
"We couldn't have asked for a better DJ for our wedding!
The karaoke was awesome, the quality that he offers is top notch.
He had a very wide variety of music and what he didn't have he found for us. 
Professional, reliable, punctual, and did his best to work around my budget. 
A 10/10, would hire him for any future event!"

Janet W
"Richie is THE man! He was perfect, professional and fun! He shows up early and has more and better equipment than any other entertainer of his kind that I have ever hired and that is saying something because I have hired many. He knows how to read the crowd for the perfect DJ tracks when no one is singing and then seamlessly suggests the perfect Karaoke tracks. His track library is limitless. Exceeds expectations in every way."

Lindsey M
"Richie was THE BEST, HANDS DOWN!!! I hired him for my 40th birthday and a surprise adoption for our 3 daughters! He literally played every single song from a list I sent him prior to my party! There was no down time....he had everyone dancing, laughing, and having a great time! He switched it up from our selections to allow for a great mix.... playing our country favorites, to southern rock, to hip hop. He took requests all night long! We had him from 4pm to 11pm if that tells you anything! I am SO HAPPY we booked Richie!!! Our party was a BLAST... we all know music has a LOT to do with this! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND booking him for your next party!!!" 

Johanna N  
"Richie was prompt, polite, and everyone had a blast singing karaoke. His music selection was absolutely a hit! I will definitely call him again for our next event." Anyone is welcome to call me as a reference (813) 299-9870  

Bruce B
"Richie was great. He had everyone up and dancing. The karaoke option was fantastic fun for the guests. The lights were an added bonus, giving the dance floor great atmosphere. Hire him for your next party!" 

"My prayers were answered when I found DJ Richie Hodge online to work at my 65th birthday celebration. I had no idea who to choose but I believe God led me to him. Everyone enjoyed his style, the selections and his personality. It was the greatest party of my life and I'm so glad I decided on him to do my 65th birthday party. There WILL be a next time in the future."

Ashley H
"Richie was amazing from start to finish. He worked with the state park to ensure he was in compliance for the event, even when he was asked for so much. I'm thankful for his willingness to make his customer's happy. He also showed up super early for the event and provided music as we were setting up. Our guests loved him and his music." 

Christina F
"Richie Hodge did such an excellent and professional job. He was very personable and friendly. The guests were so happy with the music that he selected and with the Karaoke. So many guests commented that having Richie as the DJ really added to the fun of the party. I was impressed with also the lights that he set up. I am very serious when I say that I want him to save next New Years Eve to come back and do it again."

Amy Z
"Richie had the patience of a saint with more than 50 kids and at least 30 teens and adults! A GREAT time was had by all and there are already demands for a repeat next year! We can't thank Richie enough for making all these kids "stars". Almost $1000 raised in gift cards for groceries and gas for the Children's Cancer Center!!!"

Andrea S.
"I hired Richie for my sister and her fiancé's surprise engagement party and it was definitely a great idea! He's a great DJ and even was able to set up karaoke for anyone to participate in, which was definitely the hit of the party! I highly recommend Richie's services for anyone looking to have great music and professionalism! Thanks again Richie!" 

"He was awesome. I've heard great compliments from my guests on the fab job he did. Would definitely recommend him to others having events." 

Pam W
"Dear Richie, Thank you for agreeing to provide sound for SMOLG Follies 2019. Everyone was talking about what a fantastic job you did and they really appreciated you being willing to stay and play some dance music. 
Thanks again for a fantastic job and being so easy to work with. I hope we can work together again in the future. Blessings, Pam Williams"

Jessica S
"Richie Hodge is awesome! Our party would not have been the same without him and Karaoke. I will always use Richie for my karaoke needs and you should too!" 

"Richie did an awesome job. He was friendly, prompt and super professional. Both the kids as well as the adults loved him. We will definitely have him back next year for our community event."

Gary S  
"Richie showed up on time to set up for the party. We had an absolute blast. He even stayed another hour to keep the party going. Thanks Richie for making my daughters graduation party a night to remember. Great job! Highly recommend for any event." 

Paul Evans
"He was very professional, non-stop music. Richie did a great job, I even had him stay 2 extra hours"

Whitney Gaztambide
"We used Richie for my daughters sweet sixteen party. The kids had a blast singing the night away. Lots and lots of songs to choose from. Richie even got the kids up dancing! Great night!"

Cheryl Forgang 
"Richie did an awesome job at our recent club party. Everyone had a great time with a lot of dancing and great music. Will definitely look to hire him again" 

Pamela W
"Richie was very dependable from start to finish. His price was reasonable and he was easy to work with. He was early to the event and was willing to stay after a little longer. Our event was a fundraiser for our church and was a performance type show rather than karaoke. Richie was more than willing to stay later and play some dance music for us. I would highly recommend him and would definitely hire him again." 

Dianne K
"We used High Caliber DJ & Karaoke for a large wedding rehearsal party. Richie was early to arrive and set up so that the party would start on time. He was receptive to guest requests and played fun dance music in between karaoke. All of our guests had a blast. Thanks Richie for a great evening." 

Paul R:
Richie, Thank you for a FANTASTIC time. You were great. My wife who also attended the party must have said at least 5 times how good the music you were playing. In addition to many other team members who said your services were great"
Thanks again,
Paul Rosen | Director of Human Resources and Office Management BenefitHub

Tina B:
"I would refer Richie to anyone who is thinking about having karaoke at a party or any event. Our experience with Richie as event entertainer has been a wonderful experience. Richie is versatile, reasonably priced and has a great personality"

Doris M:
"Richie made my husband's Birthday Party. He knew which songs to play to engage the most number of people. We would highly recommend Richie is a terrific Karaoke leader. In fact, several of my guests asked for his card so they can hire his expertise."

Barbie Alderson:
  "The Tampa Bay Fall Roundup would like to thank you for the fantastic show you hosted. Your readiness to adjust to the challenges that we faced to even get the show started was handled with the utmost professionalism and tact.
  Everyone had a great time and we believe that we have discovered some very talented people. 
Thank you again for a great show"
Barbie Alderson - Tampa Bay Fall Roundup Committee

Janee V:
  "This KJ is a talented musician that knows how to tweak the sound for each individual singer. He runs an organized show and keeps the singers rotation going without wasting time in between singers. I've been going to karaoke shows for many years and this is one of the best. Richie Hodge runs a professional show and we appreciate him"

Sam Cowart
  'What a great evening with everyone singing.
 As, I told you before I found and hired you for the night. I have a Karaoke party every year for the last five or six years.
The guy I normally used is out of business, So, I got online and got your number and I am so glad that I did. You did everything as promised and even added more special touches with the lighting.
You were on time and had all the books  that we needed. Your song list is incredible. So many thousands of songs to sing. You had many mic's for those who wanted group songs. Everyone had a great time. As, the host of the party, it is my job to make sure they have a good time. Well, when the singing started it was just one after another. There was never any down time. You were great and knew how to work your equipment and where to go for songs. You know it is a compliment when the police show up to tell us to tone it down. I am thinking they were talking about the bad singer's...hehe. 
I heard from so many people the next day what a great time they had and they all love the DJ. They told me that you were the best of all the ones we had in the past.
 So, if any client was to use your services, and if they have any doubts all they have to do is call me or my wife. Can't wait to use you again next year!"

Richie, I've been meaning to tell you this for awhile. You did such a wonderful job singing, and being the DJ, not to mention also being the MC at our Wedding Reception. We have received so many nice comments. You're the "greatest".

Louis & Deborah Tigue:

Billy & Dona Allen:
   "We met Richie at an American Legion Karaoke, we have been friends and followers every since. His talent, showmanship and equipment are the best and we highly recommend him to anyone looking for entertainment. Top KJ...Most entertaining, most complete song listings.
Richie always goes a step beyond!"

Beccca Boyles:
"I can tell you from my own experience with Richie, that he's the best karaoke man around. He had been in my bar several times, and always did a great job"

Francis F

Tim Guy:
 "Richie runs a top notch professional karaoke show.  He makes everyone feel welcomed.  The song list is up to date every time, The equipment and sound is top of the line quality.  He is very personable and once you have been to 1 show you will surely come back.  I have been in the Tampa area for 8 years and I have not seen a better karaoke show."
