Richie will be returning to Soil Born Farms to play their 17th Annual Autumn Equinox fundraiser which will again bring together local chefs, restaurants, bakeries, wineries and breweries that have been trailblazers in Sacramento’s local food movement. Solo piano and accordion in the “PIANO BARN” from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Great music, Great food…Come on down!!!

For seven days, June 2nd through June 8th, I will ride my bike 545 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles to support the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center, in the fight to end HIV/AIDS.

This year I am riding with Sam Orr, my 80 year old father-in-law.  He is amazing and I love him.  I am honored to play a role in this important cause with him at my side.
