You should travel to The Toronto Hilton at University and Queen Street. Climb up the stairs to the 2nd floor, and walk past the pool to hear the fine sounds of Richard Whiteman. The laid back sounds are heard in a beautiful party tent that looks out onto the downtown scene. Bring your bathing suit and grab an umbrella drink, to listen to the astute sounds of Richard Whiteman.
His band consists of guitar player Reg Schwager, Sax, Trevor Hogg, Trumpet, Jake Wilkinson and of course, Richard Whiteman on Bass. This is the band that will keep you cool on a hot summer day.
Richard shares his personal life with a song like Waltz with Zeck. A song dedicated to his 17 year old cat. He throws in some Be Bop Charlie Parker sounds and includes a song that is Ocean Deep. Truly appropriate for the pool.
Richard Whiteman is a gentle caring soul that wants his audience cool and relaxed. So the next time you need to chill out, go see Richard. His website is http://www.richardwhiteman.com/
