Richie Santa Booking Agency Profile

Book Richie Santa for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Richie Santa is a singer/Elvis Tribute Artist, who was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and now lives in Staten Island, NY only twelve miles from where he initially grew up.

Being exposed to Elvis at the early age of eight, Richie was instantly a fan! As the oldest of three boys, Richie would share his love for music and Elvis with his brother Robert, who is also an entertainer. Trying to sing and move like the KING became an everyday occurrence in the Santa household.

Richie's career started in 1982 with a band called Neighborhood Jukebox. Jukebox was an oldies band and some highlights included opening up for Roy Orbision in 1984 and singing live on the Don K. Reed Do Wop-Shop Radio show on CBS's 101.1 FM.

Richie also sang the title track to a short lived TV show back in 1989 called FAST FORWARD.

It was around that time that a friend and then unknown comic from Brooklyn named "Andrew Dice Clay" had gotten his big break and asked Richie and his band to back him up at such venues as PHILI SPECTRUM, LA FORUM, NASSAU COLISEUM, etc.. Richie also got the chance to meet many stars along the way such as Jerry Lewis, Danny Aiello, Arnold Swartzenager and Rodney Dangerfield Etc...

The highlight to touring with Andrew Dice Clay came in 1990 when the movie DICE RULES was filmed at MADISION SQUARE GARDEN. Richie still remains good friends with Andrew and on occasion will still perform with him.

Singing professionally for over 30 years and with thousands of shows performed, Richie has covered many different artists such as: Frank Sinatra, Frankie Vali, Andrea Boccelli, Journey, Aerosmith, AC DC, Al Green, Michael Buble, Bon Jovi and the list goes on and on. Although covering these artist are enjoyable and great in their own right, no one has influenced him like the "KING"

Elvis is the reason Richie became an entertainer and WHY he is still going strong today! The last 7 1/2 years have been exciting as Richie has been pursuing his career as a tribute Artist. Being the same height and weight as Elvis in his prime makes his show a more believable experience. Then add the power of Richie's voice and the transformation is complete.

In the last seven years Richie has performed over 500 shows as an Elvis Tribute Artist focusing on the Vegas concert years. Most of these shows have been private affairs, but just 5 years ago Richie decided to get more involved. In July of 2011 he was part of Elvis Fest at the Hilton in Las Vegas. Soon after that Richie was off to Memphis for Elvis week. While in Memphis he performed at the Cedar Hotel and at Graceland Plaza and also managed to compete in his first contest IMAGES OF THE KING where he made it to the finals. Since then Richie competed in the Pocono Mountains, Lake George and New Hampshire etc..

The Love and respect Richie has for Elvis is evident in all of his performances!

Anyone who knows about Elvis knows how much he cared about his career and how much he loved his fans and treated them with kindness and patience.

Being a personable person by nature, Richie truly enjoys all the fans he has met along the way to celebrate the KING's music. There will never be another Elvis Presley. He lit the torch, but as long as his fans enjoy and support all the ETA's, then Richie will continue to perform his show with the passion and the commitment to the greatest entertainer ever to grace a stage.

One example fee to book Richie Santa is in the starting range of $15,000-$24,999. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price too.

There is low probability to book Richie Santa for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Richie Santa agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Richie Santa, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Richie Santa booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Richie Santa, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
