Re: a successful private party with Foreigner
Richard: We would like to take this time to personally thank you for the wonderful job you did helping us put on such a memorable show with the rock band, Foreigner. Your hard work and dedication really helped. We all realize that this event would not have been possible without your expertise, guidance and recommendations. It was not only an honor to work with you long distance, but to meet you in person. You were always available by phone, text or email regardless of the time or day.
You have our most sincere gratitude and highest recommendation! We would definitely recommend your services to everyone, as well as utilizing your services ourselves, if/when we ever find ourselves putting on another private show. This event by far exceeded our expectations. We really appreciate all that you did to make this happen!

Nothing but the best experiences working with this extremely professional agency. This includes numerous high-end events where attention to detail is so mandatory from start to finish. Richard has the experience, knowledge and care to make each special event wonderfully memorable. Once involved, he walks each client thru the process to deal with any act, plus valuable connections, if needed, that will take your event on the path to success.
Richard De La Font Agency has repeatedly performed with 5 Star service for me with some very truly spectacular events.

I would like to thank you Richard and your team for such tremendous coordination of my two favorite comedians, Mike Epps and Henry Welch. Those two performing at my 50th Birthday CELEBRATION was a highlight of my life. They BOTH ROCKED MY CELEBRATION and were awesome!
You played a role in my life that will never be forgotten throughout North Carolina. My party has been rated to that level. “The BEST BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION IN THIS COUNTY AND THROUGHOUT THIS STATE”.
Richard, you played the key role in all of this being such a success.
You will never be forgotten! The next celebration of such caliber in this family will be offered to you.
Again, thank you for your support and coordination.
My 50th was the Best!!!!

Public fundraiser to benefit ALS support
Re: booking country music artist Keith Anderson
Richard helped me find an act (Keith Anderson) for our Country Fest to Cure ALS event this year. Richard provided numerous acts to explore while working with me to select the act that best suited our needs.
Richard’s communication was superb. We managed a list of of acts via email and phone calls as we zeroed in on our performer.
I have worked with other agencies and their communication was lacking, causing us to waste valuable time. I felt Richard always had our best interest in mind throughout the process. I highly recommend Richard to help source acts for concert events.

The Rock and Roll Society of Edmonton (Alberta, Canada)
I first encountered Richard when I was looking to land a good headliner for the Edmonton Rock Music Festival (Alberta, Canada). He sought out the acts that I had on my original wish list, and also pitched artists that weren’t on my list but fit our particular fest vibe perfectly. We had some good talks about the business of booking, particularly some unique issues of cross-border bookings, and I truly believe he represented the festival’s best interests in his negotiations with artists.
He ended up securing an artist for a good market value who will fit my audience like a glove. I told him that I look forward to having him help secure good US talent for our Canadian festival in the coming years, and that this year was just the start of what I think will become a mutually beneficial business partnership. And I truly meant every word.
Richard, thank you once more for your exceptional service in representing our fest and the kids’ charity it supports! I look forward to our continued partnership.

Again, our most sincere thanks for everything you and Jon did. Todd’s birthday party was one for the ages and we couldn’t have done it without you!!

Re: special event with Steve Wariner
Richard, I just wanted to say thank you for all your help in getting Steve Wariner to perform at our event this past Friday. The event was a HUGE success largely in part to Steve being there. It was a dream working with everybody from start to finish. You were just a pleasure to work with. Everything went so smoothly and timely. And I can’t say enough about Steve! Wow! What an amazing artist!
He played all the great hits and a couple of new ones. The dance floor was packed! And aside from being a wonderful artist, what a wonderful person! I could go on and on! I’m still on cloud 9 and reeling from the whole experience. Again, thank you so much and I look forward to working with you and, hopefully, with Steve and the band again.

Re: special event with The Doobie Brothers
Richard, you have been wonderful beyond words…we are all sending our heartfelt appreciation for all you did to bring us a wonderful concert last night. The Doobie Brothers proved to be the exact opposite of what we have come to expect from big rock shows…I am deeply appreciative and grateful for the way John and Gary handled things yesterday – working with us NOT ONLY to get the band to the Meet and Greet after the show, but even to the prow of the Lady of the Lake for a photo op!!!! What great guys…thanks so very, very much!!
Please extend our deepest thanks and appreciation to the band…what a show they gave us (even playing longer than the contract specified) with such energy…I think they sound better than ever! They were wonderful back stage, as well…good natured about making our stage work for them…working with our staff…after so many years on the road they might have been difficult, disinterested, cynical, etc., etc. There was none of that.
I sang for many years at the Metropolitan Opera in NYC before returning home and taking on the building of Music by the Lake. I’ve seen many divas (and divos) over the years…I was expecting that from The Doobies but was wonderfully surprised to find just the opposite. Please tell them how impressed I was over this…but it really comes from the top down…mille grazie!
Richard, we hope to see and work with you again!
