Professional DJ Services available for most all public, private & corporate events in the Tampa Bay and surrounding areas up to 100 mile radius. I'm also available for bars/clubs as well. I can DJ alone or also add in karaoke at no extra charge.
Karaoke is always a fun added activity but is purely you're option. I have been a musician/entertainer/singer all of my adult life and have been a DJ hosting karaoke full time since 2002.
I have performed hundreds of events and everyone has always been very pleased with my service. Reviews can be read here and on my personal web site at www.RichieHodge.com

I have up to 5 wireless mics for group singers, announcements, toasts, or speeches. I use a laptop with an external hard drive with a huge song library both DJ music & karaoke songs that are updated monthly. I have a tablet that can go online to access virtually any requested song in the event I don't already have it. I use dazzling stage & dance floor lighting to make things look good. Provide me with a list of favorite songs and I will build a digital file ahead of time so that I can play all you're favorites during you're event. NO CHARGE for set up and tear down time. My rates are reasonable & negotiable. I accept all major credit cards.

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!
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!! More...
Everyone who attended had a great time.
Richie was great

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!
