A GUY WITH A PIANO & A GUY WITH A GUITAR is:
RICHIE PHILLIPS (piano)
J YAGER (guitar)
RICHIE PHILLIPS is the well-known former morning drive on-air personality at WGNA 107.7 FM Radio in Albany NY, where he spent 28 years creating hilarity each and every weekday morning. But that is hardly the sum of his experience; in fact, for more than 40 years, Richie has been a "most-requested" live entertainer, tinkling the ivories and creating laugh-aloud parodies and spoofs in clubs throughout the Northeastern United States. And, as "Rhymin' Richie", he is the mastermind behind a highly-acclaimed live school music and education program. A versatile, uproariously funny live performer, Richie is the talented writer and singer who powers this hilarious duo.
J YAGER has fronted some of the Northeast US's most popular bands, including THE REFRIGERATORS, THE BURNERS U.K. and THE AUDIOSTARS. A funny, versatile performer in his own right, J is known for his energetic, humorous onstage personality. But it's his "secret passion" for writing comedy and parodies that drew him together with Richie. J adds rock 'n roll riffs and a little slapstick humor to the dynamic GPGG duo.
