I'm Richie Merritt and singing has been my passion for many years!
I have performed from coast to coast, border to border with a few
international gigs thrown in along the way.   I now call Florida my home
and I'm really loving it!  

You may have heard me singing with groups that included
The Marcels
Blue Moon, Heartaches), The Clovers (Devil or Angel, One Mint Julep,
Love Potion #9
), The Memories (Can I, Sh-Boom),The Drifters (Save
the Last Dance For Me),
appearing with the "Richie Merritt Review" or
perhaps on one of my Cd's.   I continued to perform nationally with
after moving to Florida but after spending so many weekends
traveling out of state for the past nine years I have I decided to
concentrate on the Florida music scene with my own show and enjoy
more of the Florida Lifestyle!  Now you'll be seeing me locally as "Richie
Merritt Live" .......the former lead singer of "The Marcels!"

When I am on stage I will still perform your favorite classic R&B, Soul  
and Oldies but you'll hear new materials including  jazz, standards from
Sinatra, Mathis and others, some country, and some of today’s music
including a few of my own songs!  I'm sure  you’ll enjoy the new

So come out and see me when I'm in your area.  You'll really
enjoy the show!

Don’t stop now…...Check out the rest of my website to get to know
me a little better, to view a listing of some of the songs that I perform, to
look at a few photos that depict some of the events in my career and how
you can order my Cd's and other merchandise.  There's also a page
where you may contact me to obtain information on booking me for your
club, corporate event, private function or party!  

Thanks for taking the time to visit with me!!!

What's Up!
