Paul R:
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.
I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Thanks again,
Paul Rosen | Director of Human Resources and Office Management

"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,"

Alex V:
"Very friendly and flexible. Goes out of his way to give you an excellent experience. Came early to set up. Tried to gather guest preferences and was able to work a rather difficult party crowd into action."

Barbie Alderson:
  "The Tampa Bay Fall Roundup would like to thank you for the fantastic show you hosted on September 6, 2015.  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."

Janee V:
  "This KJ is a talented musician that knows how to tweek 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."

  '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!"

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."
