Rick is an experienced professional acoustic guitarist & vocalist from North West London.

I had to send you an email to say you guys were absolutely awesome on Saturday!!!We had an after party day with everyone yesterday at the pub and I can't remember how many people said the music was spot on and made the day....so thanks and hope you enjoyed watching the grooving! :-) Will definitely be recommending you far and wide. Thanks!
Thank you so much for singing and playing at my mum's birthday celebration. Your service was professional, friendly and stress-free from start to finish. You really listened to what we asked for and on the day your performance was perfect for the occasion and the age-group. All our guests have commented on your talent and how your music made the party really special. Thank you.
I hired Rick to perform a solo act whilst I proposed to my now fiancée. From the start Rick took the time to listen to me, understand what I need and discuss how best he could work with me. Rick was on time, ready and waiting which really took the stress away. He is very reliable and professional. He played the perfect songs, the perfect way. Rick, you changed our lives forever and you will now always remain in our memories in a positive way. Thank you.
Thank you once again for a terrific night’s entertainment. You made our staff Christmas party special, for the second year running. Providing background entertainment during the meal and afterwards enticing everyone on to the dance floor, getting the mood just right!
Rick played at a party of ours in 2014. We heard some impressive clips online and were very excited to manage to book him. We weren't disappointed. Lots of us got up dancing. He performed a range of covers and even took requests. He gave the party a brilliant atmosphere. Our friends all said how fab he was too, it made our event. Would highly recommend! Friendly and professional, as well as extremely talented.
Hi Koser, Rick is a delightful and very talented young man!
Hi Koser, Rick was really great! He was very professional and played all our requested songs perfectly and exactly when needed during the ceremony. We had a lot of lovely compliments from the guests about his voice and song choices during the reception and all the songs fitted so well to the garden party style, all in all he did a really great job! Clare
Hi Koser, We had a fantastic day; better than we could have possibly hoped for. Everything went to plan and Rick was the perfect act for our evening venue; so please pass on our gratitude for an excellent performance that gauged the mood of our guests just right. It has been a pleasure dealing with you, and you made the whole process simple and stress free. I will certainly make Act Sharp my first port of call for any functions I have to organize in the future. Kind regards, Tim.
Hi Koser, We have just about recovered from the wedding and believe it or not the sun shone over us in Grantham, Lincolnshire during our big day, which went really smoothly and exceeded our expectations! Many family and friends have commented on the whole day as being fabulous and the evening entertainment and venue as being wonderful. We have great happy memories! We would like to pass on our thanks and gratitude to Rick who performed wonderfully on the evening. His music and singing complemented the day and the 'mood' of the evening and our first dance, Angels, went down well and Rick made it a special moment for us both. Rick is a very pleasant and amiable young man with great talent and we would recommend him to anyone. He is a class act and a credit to himself and Act Sharp. Thank you once again for your consistent personable service from the outset to our big day - it was appreciated. We will definitely use your website if we wish to source acts and/or services in the future and will recommend Act Sharp to friends.
Hi Koser, In spite of the shocking weather, the day went really well! Rick sensed the mood perfectly and his performance was excellent! He even played with my 9 year old son! Rick is a professional act that I would happily recommend! – Great Job and thanks for all your help, Barry
Hi Koser, Rick performed brilliantly. Everyone commented on how high quality his singing and guitar was. He also helped us by asking the birthday girl to come over to the village hall - all part of the surprise! Please extend our thanks to him once again!
A big thank you Rick for a really great show on Saturday to celebrate my 60th birthday. You judged the mood of the room brilliantly and played/sung really well. All my guests were very complimentary.Best regards, Mike
Rick has for the last two Septembers donated his time and musical skills to O-Jam, Olswang LLP's live music event supporting the children's charity Coram. On stage at the event, his professionalism and leadership were second to none and he really helped to make the event a massive success. I would recommend him without hesitation for corporate events.
Rick performed at my 70th Birthday Party in Hampstead last May. I was delighted with his performance and he made a wonderful atmosphere at the party. All the guests really enjoyed listening to his music and singing and he has already had recommendations from them. I hope I will have the opportunity to employ Rick again in the future.
I wanted to write and thank Rick for his wonderful contribution to my daughter’s Batmitzvah. The music he played at the reception created a perfect atmosphere as our guests arrived and mingled. Not too loud or too quiet, just the right balance. I was very happy with his performance and would definitely recommend him to my friends and book him for future events.
Rick has the perfect repertoire for entertaining a party and his musical spectrum includes classic and modern hits ranging from artists such as Elvis, Van Morrison, The Beatles, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Clapton and Queen right through to Oasis, Chilli Peppers, Estelle, Coldplay, Maroon 5, John Legend, Kings of Leon, Gnarls Barkley, Greenday and more.
Although based in the south east, Rick is happy to travel UK wide
