So glad I found this! Hope to see you Saturday night! Wow Rick all those years at WLHS and the coffeehouse at Slayton House, so glad you are sharing your gift for the Lord!

Michael Rose says:

It's summer now. There won't be snow storm to keep Jean Watson away from the Amazing Grace Coffehouse in Columbia, MD, Sunday August 1, 2010 at 5:30 PM with Rck and Margaret LaRocca!

Catherine Mirch says:

Rick's voice is crystal clear on these recordings. His songs are reminiscent of David and his psalter. His soulful "hymns" remind me of Canadian Christian vocalist/composer Brian Doerksen.

Fran Nicholls says:

I have been enjoying your music it is great! Hope to come out one Sunday to see you . Give each other a hug for me.



Lisa Fenstermacher says:

Hi Rick and Margaret,
Thank you for welcoming me to IndieHeaven. Hope to meet you both soon!
Great song "To Be Like You"!
Blessings to you both!

Raj Thiruvengadam says:

My God! So great to not only see you still around, but what a sensational success you and your wife have become!

I am one of the many to whom you gave a start in music when you ran the shows at Lakefront in Columbia. I and my friends will never, ever, forget you for that chance. (And for that audience many of whom came out just to see your first set and then stuck around!)

SO... kudos to you.
But I am writing to you now because there is a company who wants to run an event venue, outdoors, and I can think of no one more qualified than you. However, if you don't want the gig, and I can see that you are now probably very busy with your own stuff, could you recommend someone or some outfit? Just a contact would be great.

Once again, congratulations on your stunning success!
No one deserves it more than you!
~Raj Thiruvengadam

I've heard you in person at Amazing Grace but never listened to the website before. You sound great but I really like the depth added when Margaret sings with you. See you soon.

Michael Rose says:

I see you've updated your selections. I like the version of Come Holy Spirit you've left here.

Rick - thanks again for your hard work in sponsoring the event. You are a GREAT host, and you did a super job backing up Jean. I was thrilled to be able to play, and also to be blessed by Brad Reynolds and Kelly Eldridge - a very indieheavenly experience!!

Thanks for your heart and your music. They are both beautiful!

Excellent song writing. "To be like you" is my favorite. It's simply beautiful and heartfelt. I think I need to learn this one on my guitar!

I really like "To Be Like You". I would have come to the showcase last week, but it was my Mom's 80th birthday... Next time...

Richard Walton says:

Rick, keep up writing those worshipful tunes! "Rejoice" has my heart smiling - I was hooked on the first listen. Peace and may the Lord's hand guide your original musical journey. Richard Walton - Straight On Red
