Everything required to put on the performance (such as mixing desk, speakers, cables) will all be provided for you. Based in Hull but travelling further afield is not a problem.

The performance and setlist will be tailor-made to your specific event; this could be old classics, or a more modern set of current chart hits and acoustic covers. As mentioned previously, original music is also available if desired for your event.

Heard Phil play at a garden party recently and was so impressed. A wide range of songs to suit all ages. A very talented guy!

Very talented singer guitarist-you will not be disappointed!


Phil, what can we say..YOU WERE AWESOME!!!. Every single wedding guest had something to say about you..I only wish I could replay to you the comments made to us about your amazing voice and talent. You were absolutely perfect for our special day. Dream Catch Me and Mardy Bum, just wow!!! Thank you so much, you truly were outstanding

-Mel Burden

Phil performed at our charity football tournament for The Stephen Hughes Foundation and was a fantastic addition to the day. We wanted to add live music to the day this year, and after seeing Phil perform elsewhere, we knew he would be perfect for our event. He performed an array of songs and the crowds absolutely loved him - everyone gathered round to watch and sang along. He was fantastic!

-Emily Pawson

I had seen Phil on this website and needed to book someone for a charity event in the foyer of the supermarket I work in. He was very professional and an absolutely phenomenal performer! Will be booking him again for my birthday BBQ this year!

-Laurence Dann

I don't know where to start, Phil was absolutely fantastic for our special day. Everything from his organisation to his communication was brill, and his performance stunned everybody. The fact that he learnt 2 additional songs as requests for our first dance and another special song to us was just the icing on the cake!! Could not recommend more.

-Katie Stephens

Phil Richards is a supremely talented artist. His energy, enthusiasm and witty demeanour on stage makes him stand out from the rest. He is, by far, the best live artist the village hotel has ever employed.

-Ricky Coates

Phil has a rich and varied vocal range. It's rare to hear such power coupled with a personal sensitivity, it's very striking. Alongside his great performances - he really works to engage the crowd - Phil is an affable, professional guy. It's the combination of professionalism, approachability and top-notch performance that made him the top choice booking for our wedding.

-Mike Lloyd

e recently had Phil Richards perform at a ladies race day we held in our garden, Phil went out of his way to fit in with our time schedule and his set which was varied for all ages was really enjoyed by everyone would definitely recommend

-Sarah Kidd

Your performance was amazing we see it was a real head turner to the point we've booked u for our joint birthday party at Christmas!!

-Lynzey Moore

Really awesome talent and funny guy between songs. We had a blast watching him perform a real mix of different styles. Could have been the whole band on stage when all it was, was Phil and his guitar.

-Kate Moorhouse

Couldn't of wished for a better guy. Plays for the audience. Right songs at the right time. Booking him for my wedding.

-Paul Harrod

"A brilliant stage presence, able to engage the audience with a light-hearted rapport, coupled with a powerful set of lungs and a tremendous amount of talent on the guitar. He is able to both amuse and wow audiences while on stage, definitely an artist to watch". - James Bolton, Ardent Music Promotions.

"A great performer, and puts more heart into his shows than most solo acts I've ever met. Ace songs and an ace voice!" - Sam Connolly, Potting Shed Bar Manager.
