Richardson was also honored once more by the city of Tempe. He is the inaugural musician to be on honored with a gold plaque embedded in the sidewalk on Mill Avenue, creating Tempe’s Music Walk. Each November they add another band or musician to the walk and Richardson has the honor of being the first.

Through music he has traveled, and had the opportunity to meet great artists like Carlos Santana, Burning Spear, Taj Mahal and share the stage with bands ranging from Third World to Ziggy Marley.From backyard house parties, to coffee houses, wine bars, night clubs, and concert stages, he says “it is and incredible feeling to be able to fill the air with music and be part of its marvelous effect on people”.

He will be performing with Gig Gonaway (drummer for Mariah Carey, Steve Winwood, Aretha Franklin and more), Drew Hall (guitarist for the Cheektones, former Bid Daddy D and the Dynamites), and Marcus Weeden (bassist with Blanie Long – The Voice).
