Richie Hodge was very accommodating. He played a wide array of music, which fit our crowd. Karaoke was fun and everyone was very complimentary about the music.

Wonderful experience working with Richie. He arrived in plenty of time to set up for the party, and even stayed a bit later after the gig before tearing down. He interacted very well with all the guests, and was able to fulfill all song requests. Followed the provided playlist nicely and made all people feel warm and fuzzy. Top notch entertainment! Highly recommend. Thanks, Richie!!! More...

Ours was not your normal request
But although he was unsure Richie was up for the job!
Our youngest sister passed away after a stroke in January
COVID was preventing any large physical gatherings
So I suggested that we wait until close to her 60th birthday and have a 'birthday memorial celebration '😳
And Richie knocked it out of the park!
Upbeat music!
Kareoke mixed with her favorite music
She loved most genre's so it was pretty easy for Richie to assemble 3.5 hours of party!
It was indeed a memorial celebration
He has experience now in the birthday memorial celebration field now too!!

Richie was first to reach out to me and seemed very interested on our unique situation.
We are having a 60th birthday Memorial celebration for our late sister Tammy.
Her range of music was pretty eclectic.
Thanks to the other 2 of the 5 recommended for contacting me as well?

Richie was THE BEST, HANDS DOWN!!! I hired him for my 40th birthday and a surprise adoption for our 3 daughters! He literally played every single song from a list I sent him prior to my party! There was no down time....he had everyone dancing, laughing, and having a great time! He switched it up from our selections to allow for a great mix.... playing our country favorites, to southern rock, to hip hop. He took requests all night long! We had him from 4pm to 11pm if that tells you anything! I am SO HAPPY we booked Richie!!! Our party was a BLAST... we all know music has a LOT to do with this! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND booking him for your next party!!! More...

DJ Richie performed at my wife's birthday party, and made it a huge success. Perfect song selections, and seamless transitions from karaoke to music to dance numbers. He read the crowd beautifully and kept everyone engaged. No one left early!  It was terrific from start to finish. Richie was very professional, on time and ready to go when people started to arrive. Highly recommend for your next gathering. Couldn't have asked for a better performance!! More...

Have you ever booked a karaoke event and had some half drunk sleaze show up in a Salvation Army suit with a $100 plastic Sam's Club sing along machine under his arm? You need High Caliber Karaoke with Richie Hodge!

Then when things got a little slow, or everyone was having dinner and he had to carry on by himself prove to be the most God awful singer ever? You need High Caliber Karaoke with Richie Hodge!

Did sleaze boy turn down 90% of your requests with “I don’t have that!”? You need High Caliber Karaoke with Richie Hodge!

Did the crowds energy go up and down like a roller coaster because he didn’t know how to work a crowd and keep them going? You need High Caliber Karaoke with Richie Hodge!

This a class act all the way!

When Richie shows up, he brings a whole trailer with state of the art gear that cost more than a new car, along with a 10,000+ song library with everything from Auld Lang Syne and Happy Birthday to pop and country songs that were released last week!

Dead air? No such thing with Richie! He is a second generation entertainer and has been singing and working crowds literally all his life. He sings like a professional because he IS, and always has just the right joke, comment or wisecrack to keep everyone smiling!

Been burned before or just uncertain about what you’re getting? Don’t worry!

This is as good as it gets! A 5 star show all the way!

Incredibly entertaining! Funny, witty and a great singer. Would recommend for any age group for any event. Very skilled and knowledgeable in anything music! ! Can't wait to see High Caliber with Richie Hodge once more!! More...


Keep the beat up and constantly moving, never dead air. Stay abreast of requests that come in. Always have positive attitude and personality.

I am a laid back DJ, I don't do the techno scratch style DJing. I play songs that are usually requested or pick and choose from my own vast library. I like to keep things moving and hate dead air. I am a singer so can help karaoke singers if they want help or do a few numbers myself. I will keep the party moving!

Working with people & music. I enjoy pleasing people with music and excitement. I've been in the entertainment business all my life and love seeing people smile, laugh, dance and have a good time!

I have been a professional musician all my life. I also enjoy karaoke and would participate in various karaoke shows around town so I decided to become a karaoke host/DJ. I already had PA equipment so I invested in a song library that is quite extensive and I update it monthly. Very rarely I don't have a karaoke song requested. If I don't have the song, it was probably never produced for karaoke. I also have a very large song library for DJ music that is also updated monthly. If I don't have a requested song in my vast library, I can access virtually any song online with my tablet!

Because I pride myself on being professional and going above and beyond the call of duty, I'm proud of the many positive reviews I have received on my web site and the 5-star reviews received on another booking web site. I have the equipment & experience to make your event a success.
I've been entertaining all my life!

I am fully vaccinated. I abide by all Covid-19 guidelines. Social distancing, mic sanitation, etc. The way I usually set up my equipment people can't get real close to me.
When hosting karaoke I have sanitizing wipes for the mics and also mic covers if the singer prefers to use one.
