“Peter Richardson’s music was such a nice enhancement to our evening at Fossett’s. The weather was fantastic, the view from the terrace was amazing, and the acoustical guitar contributed to the magical night. I hope to enjoy Peter’s music again.”

“Peter was an absolute joy to work with. He checked in with me weeks prior to the ceremony … He worked with me to make up the perfect song list for my ceremony. It was wonderful not having to worry about a THING with Peter. He was there early, was so friendly with all the guests, and played beautifully. I would recommend him for every bride out there.”

“Peter Richardson and then, Alegria, were awesome! We were so pleased, 
and really could not have asked for better.
Peter was great for the outdoor ceremony and pulled through at the 
last minute with a song request from Ann for a Bjork song. Hearing the song really helped to calm Ann’s nerves as she started walking down the aisle, and made it very memorable.
A lot of people commented that they really liked the band for the 
reception. The mood they set was perfect. Our friends really enjoyed hearing a band that did not do bad renditions of today’s top 20 songs. Alegria really does have their own unique style to their music.”
