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.

The show was great. You were a real hit, especially with my daughter. Our group was very complimentary of your performance and it added to our joyous festivities.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years to you and family.

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.
The day turned out to be exactly what i hoped for! You were a very large part in making Elizabeth's shower as special as it was. Of course i will keep you at the top of my list for the future!

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 for the great performance! My family friends, and myself really had a great time.

friends for future gigs
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 ,
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--6-24-12Richie,
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.
