Thanksgiving to You & All of Your Richie Lee Crew...LOVE
your music! :)"
Saw you last Friday at
Grand Falls Casino. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the
show! I’ve seen many oldies bands – even sang in one in
college – but you guys are the best I’ve ever seen! Love
your energy, showmanship, medleys, the inclusion of some
lesser known songs, and guitar mastery. Any time you are in
our area, we will be there if we can!

Richie. So glad you have had such great success. My daughter
and I met you outside of Sun Records, in Memphis, TN. It was
many years ago. You must have been maybe 16. You were
traveling with a guardian. If I remember correctly, you had
a red guitar. We did not get to see you perform, but I have
thought of you through the years and wondered where life had
taken you. I live in Columbus, Ohio. Probably not much
chance of seeing you here. God Bless. "
saw and met Richie at the Clay County Fair last
week...actually took in two shows...A great young man with a
terrific act....we will see him again...Butch
Lee was the most requested act to have back at the Clay

the songs of the 50's-60's era almost exactly as the were
