He performed all over the East Coast with a band he founded called Diablo Canyon which included very dear friends and outstanding musicians.
They opened for such acts as Marshall Tucker, Molly Hatchet, 38 Special, Mickey Thomas, Edgar Winter, Diamond Rio, Aaron Tippon, The Southern Rock Allstars, Pat Travers, Brooks and Dunn, Gary Allen, Leon Russel, Trick Pony and more. 
After departing from Diablo Canyon, Richie founded the popular local band, JeNDeR. JeNDeR lead the Central Florida band scene for four years and over 1,100 shows.
Next, Richie created, "THE ACCUZED" that also went on to perform numerous high profile shows throughout Central Florida. Richie's newest creation is a Classic Southern Rock and Blues Band called "AMERICAN PRIDE BAND" . Richie proudly teams up with a band of amazing musicians!! Richie is truly grateful to all of the friends and fans they've made since the inception of the band and thank each and everyone of them for their support. He says, "Keep your eyes and ears open for "AMERICAN PRIDE BAND", you won't be disappointed!"
