Rick Hay . . . an entertainer who is a career musician.
A person who is totally involved in music as a performer, a song writer and as a music teacher.
His solo act is the result of many years in the business at all levels from playing in top touring acts, in ‘support acts’ to the likes of INXS, Jenny Morris, Noiseworks and others, to working in club & corporate show-bands, as well as trio, duo and solo work – giving him a wealth of knowledge that has shaped his professionalism and has people asking for more.
His passion for playing live is what drives his work – a passion that keeps him genuine, producing a high quality performance – he does not settle for second best…
Rick’s backing tracks for his solo act is in most cases produced by himself in a professional studio to give that real ‘live band’ feel when he plays, making him a most versatile performer and making his ‘sound equal’ to or better than any solo act heard in SE Qld.
Rick has carried this experience into his current acts which include playing “Lindsay Buckingham” in ‘Rumours – The Australian Fleetwood Mac Experience’, ‘Scandal’ (the corporate covers band), ‘Trilogy’ (his club trio) and his solo performances.
In Rick’s own words… “When you hire me, you get an act that plays great sounding music to the people who sit before me. To suit your needs I don’t have to stick to set songs lists and with 250+ songs in my repertoire it is broad enough to cover the likes of younger or older audiences.
I present my shows with top quality gear. I take the time to ‘light’ my stage well and I play at the volume the venue requires.
In my years as a professional musician, I have never disappointed a single audience… I’m a sure bet!”
