This resulted in a great number or performances at home and abroad. His repertoire consists not only of moving boogie woogie and earthy blues, but of popular Broadway standards, discreet bar music, and the pop-songs that everyone likes to hear. The performances are conceived completely upon the theme of the venue, whereby Richie creates a good mood not only on piano, but on vocals as well. Besides concerts and international festivals, the venues include company events, private parties or performances in the bars of finer hotels. Since 1986, Richie Loidl has developed a mostly self-taught individual style, linked to the feedback from his audience. With the sensitive involvement of the complete periphery of the respective venue, such as architecture, decor, lighting, gastronomy, society, instrument, acoustics, PA system etc., he constantly succeeds in creating a typical atmosphere of joy, pleasure, entertainment, and devotional gratification to the beautiful things of life. The highlights of his career to date were large boogie festivals in France (Paris, Normandy, Auvergne, Lyon, Cote d‘Azur, Beaune), Germany ( Hamburg, Munich, Rust/Europapark, Tiengen, Baden-Baden, Travemunde), and Switzerlad ( Lugano), as well as numerous performances throughout Italy, Spain, Canada, Bahrain, and naturally, in all of Austria.

There, the lifestyle "'round about the piano" and "'round about the lake" is unique. Richie is continually "shakin'" in duo with Clemens Vogler ( "Shake the Lake Boogie Woogie Session on Two Pianos" ) and / or with band including drums, bass, blues-harp, up to large festival formations. Richie's motto: Simply live! Let the good times roll! Keep shakin'! Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
