On behalf of our members at the Senior League, I would like to thank the Queensborough Performing Arts Center for providing us with a live musical show featuring Elvis a.k.a Richie Santa. Elvis was extremely polished and professional

providing us with an unforgettable experience. Our members truly loved the performance and asked when he could come again. I certainly would recommend "Elvis" to any group who wants to smile and have a great time.

We were hoping that we would have the pleasure of having our New York City

Council Member Karen Koslowitz attend the performance but she was unable to come at the last minute. We truly are extremely grateful to Karen for funding this performance, I know our members will certainly talk about the show for many

days to come.

We wish you all the best in your endeavors and only hope that the

Queensborough Performin rts Center will be able to continue such wonderful events.

Good morning, Richie  10-11-14
I was lucky to see your great tribute at City Fire in Brownwood in The Villages. 
I am a fellow New Yawker (my accent) and have retired to Leesburg, Fl. Of course I NEVER wanted to leave New Yawk but we could no longer afford to stay and be able to sustain our lives. I miss the excitement, the diversity of people and, of course, the great entertainment and venues for music, art and drama. 
I enjoyed the honor you gave the The King. I'd like to share that I was in grade school when Elvis released Blue Hawaii and saw the movie with my classmates. I've been in love ever since. 
I've been honored to see so many great artist, but, my regret is I never saw Elvis. Thanks for bringing him back into my heart. 
Warmly, 
Alaina C
Dear Richie, 3-13-14
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated you singing "Wonder of You" to me at the Pocono Elvis Fest. It made me feel so good. I wish you all the best in your career. I will be going to the festival again in October and hope to see your again. Shortly after the festival I had a lumpectomy and so far my cancer is gone. All the tribute artists I met there were so nice but you hold a special place in my heart.

Once again, thank you so much

Hi Richie,  9-16-12
  Very enjoyable show in Ridley today.  I've seen many Elvis tribute artists, and you were one of the best I've seen. I took my nephew who is 15, and he loved the show.  We were sitting on a bench to the side of the stage.  Trying to introduce him to Elvis and his music for many years now, so glad he went to the show, and he took some good pictures too. Hope you come back to this area again, and thanks for keeping the "King's" memory alive.  

Be well,

Mary
Hi Richie,  2-26-13

I wanted to let you know that it's people like you who add a special feeling, not only because of your talent, but because of your heart. You made her very happy.

Hi Richie,   3-20-12 

   Thanks so much for the great show today!!  Everyone that I spoke to had so much fun and really loved your performance…great job!! Someone found your glasses in the mens room… silver frames, blue lenses.  I believe you are going to perform at the Montgomery senior center in April so if you want, I could give them to Denise the manager and you could get them from her the day of your show?  Let me knoI will definitely be in touch for future parties.

 

Thanks again,

 Hi Richie,    August 29, 2012      

       I should be the one thanking you! You did an amazing job. Our friends and family have not stopped raving about you.  You know its difficult putting your trust in someone that you dont know, but from the first time we spoke, I felt that it would all work out. I must be honest, I was holding my breath when you came on but only for second! Lol. John was truly surprised and thrilled with the whole thing. He thought you were terrific & he appreciated you letting him sing a few lines. I did not know but he had a surprise planned for me. He was going to sing an Elvis song to me..[Treat me nice]. We would love to see you perform, if you do any shows other that weddings, please let us know.

Thanks for everything ,

Mindy

Hi Richie!

   Everyone loved your performance!  We have named you officially, “Cousin Richie” from Staten Island! Now we’ll compile everyone’s pictures and see which ones are the best.  Hey, I think I’ll start making an album for each year! 

Jerry and Margo--6-24-12 

Richie,
     This was the first chance that I have gotten to say thank you so much for the fantastic job you did at Jordan's party.
You were AMAZING.
We were blown away by how good your performance was.
You really brought Elvis to life.
I am sure you saw how happy Jordan was - we never saw him like that.
It was truly special.  The kids loved it and so did the adults.
 
You made those special kids very very happy....

 
 
I can't thank you enough for your courtesy to our family and friends in taking pictures - etc.
 
Thank you again...
Your pictures are on my FB page.
 
Great job...You helped to make the party a memory for us all
 
Fondly Lorraine-- 6-27-12


Dear Richie,
     Wow, What a performance! You were incredible and gave everything you had for the entire time.  Our classmates have sent us many letters telling us what a wonderful weekend they had.  One man told me that he will not miss any future reunions as long as health allows.  Another woman said that she had never come to a reunion in the past, but will not miss any in the future.  You realize, I hope, what a major part you played in our Saturday night party. I saw some classmates who normally are a bit reserved dance with abandonment.   As another classmate  said, "We were young again, if only for one night." Richie, you are amazing as a singer, performer, and most of all a wonderful caring person. Keep on singing, you are a gift to anyone lucky enough to attend any of your performances.  I also apologize that we kept you waiting to go on. Once again, you handled that with grace.

Thank you,
Carol and the reunion committee-- 6-27-12

I would recommend Richie Santa for each and everyone out there looking for exceptional talent and personability. Richie was very prompt and adjusted to the situation with ease, for it was a very small area in which he had to perform. His performance was excellent and he made a very great impact on our guest of honor, my Aunt Joyce suffering from calciphylaxis. Her exact words, "From the moment he entered the room and began singing, my pain left my body". No words can express the gratitude I feel for this man's awesome performance. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank his sound men for their part as well. The perfect performer for your functions!!!

Richie was the hit of the party. He not only livened up the crowd at my parents' surprise 40th anniversary brunch but also sounded just like Elvis. The guests couldn't believe how talented he is. The ladies enjoyed receiving scarves and kisses on the cheek from him during the performance. Richie was also gracious enough to stick around for more photos and a longer meet and greet than he was contractually obligated to after his performance. He was extremely accommodating throughout the entire booking, planning and party process. I highly recommend him for your next event!

Richie was amazing!!! Our parents were so surprised by his appearance. Our mom is a lifelong ELVIS fan and she is very critical of how others portray him,but with richie it was a home run hit. All of the guests were raving about him. His look was on point, his performance and movements were like the king himself and his vocal talent was beautiful. He left all the woman wanting more!!! Even the young children at the party, just loved him and of course the young at heart!! He came with such professionalism, natural down to earth personality and made that night in galloway even more memorable because of his performance and passion for entertaining. Elvis would be PROUD!

The performance was excellent. Richard was exciting to watch and his talent as a performer was evident to everyone. My mother was so impressed, as were the guests, by his ability to make everyone feel as if they were part of the show. Even the children were excited. I received requests from people not invited to our party to watch and listen to Richard perform. Well done. It was certainly a pleasure working with Gig-Masters. Excellent service and talented performers. I would certainly recommend Richard Santa and Gig-Masters to friends and family!

Hiring Richie Santa was the best thing I did. He made my parents 50th Anniversary party a most memorable experience. My guests enjoyed the performance so much that they still talk about him. Richie was so professional with his performance. He came into my party as a total surprise to my guests and my family. He dressed the part and sounded just like Elvis. Richie is such a personable guy. He even came back after his performance to take pictures and talk with the guests. I highly recommend him. Kathy Milazzo

Richie did a wonderful job performing at our office party. It was the first time we had ever had an Elvis performer come in, so I was a nervous about how he would be received by our employees. However, everyone had a great time and Richie really livened up our event. I would definitely recommend him to others.

He was great!I hired him for an hour to surprise my wife for Valentines day. He made her day!He sang the songs that I asked him to and he gave her personal attention. He came to her work and was professional in his act and afterward. He also interacted with the other employees to make the experience great for everyone. His talent is of the highest caliber.His love for what he does is conveyed in his performance. One of the best impersonators we have heard sing.I enjoyed the show as much as my wife.I would recommend Richie to anyone looking for Elvis. The entire process of dealing with him from signing the contract to the end of the show was a pleasant one. Ron

I cannot say enough about Richie Santa. He arrived on time and was very professional. As soon as I met Richie, you can tell he was a warm, genuine person. He exceeded my expectations! I honestly never much cared for Elvis Impersonators but Richie was SPOT ON with his voice. Not just myself but others say you close your eyes and believed Elvis was "in the house". Richie was wonderful in every aspect. Richie made the party a HUGE success and all of the guests could not stop telling me what a great time they had. I even received phone calls the next day with folks telling me how much they loved "Elvis"!! Richie Santa, I cannot thank you enough! U ROCK!!
