A touch of class and a lovely chap.

5 stars - Richie Keys are Highly Recommended booked Richie Keys for their Wedding in Herefordshire December 2019

“We hired Rich to play pre and post our wedding ceremony in Ledbury, Herefordshire - and we couldn’t be happier that we did. The communication with Rich (and Gemma at the Network) was exceptional, and Richard listened to all of our wishes and plans for the day. Before the ceremony Richard played to our guests music from the classical side of his catalogue. Post ceremony Rich played light and jolly jazz, and his inclusion set a wonderful tone for our wedding. He is a fantastic guy and a genuinely lovely spirit, showing interest and care and an outstanding talent with piano. We cannot thank him enough for the role he played on our big day.”


Brilliant pianist and highly professional.

5 stars - Richie Keys are Highly Recommended booked Richie Keys for their Wedding September 2019

“Richard is a brilliant pianist and highly professional. We really loved his repertoire, and felt so lucky to have Richard performing at our wedding. Added to his jazzy repertoire he was able to play calming and atmospheric classical music at the beginning of the ceremony as our guests arrive and got settled. I would thoroughly recommend him!”


Engaging and melodic and well suited to the occasion.

5 stars - Richie Keys are Highly Recommended booked Richie Keys for their event August 2019

“We employed Richard Hughes at my 70th birthday party on August 13th, where he played for over two hours. He was a pleasure to deal with, reliable and co-operative.The audience appreciated his playing which was engaging and melodic and well suited to the occasion. He played mainly standards from the American Song book, showing his talent as a jazz musician and was happy to combine forces with a guest flautist on some numbers totally unrehearsed. Both John, my husband and I enjoyed his playing and were very glad we'd chosen him. Rosalind and John Wiseman.”


The music was great! We loved it and so did everyone else!
