Okay, So You’re Pretty Good…

You’ve probably been handed a card or  brochure by a member of our directory because he/she has seen you perform and wishes to both compliment you and offer you an opportunity.

The compliment is this: 

You demonstrate a talent well above the average found at most  shows!  Surrounded by “normal” singers, you stand out like a professional at amateur night!

—but the truth is,


 So rather than dwell on the details and degree of the compliment itself, let’s focus instead on the opportunity which accompanies it…

We are a directory of talented amateur (and more than a few pro) performers in the Inland Empire who are willing to occasionally donate their gifts to qualified charities. 

Ric~N~Vic Productions works with the most prominent charities in Southern California— as DJ, KJ, Master of Ceremonies, or just another volunteer vocalist—and the rewards just keep getting greater every year!

So here’s your chance to share your gift with entirely new audiences—and to not only feel good about helping others, but to also enjoy the benefits of joining our group…




OK, so...

What’s in it for me?

Of course, there is the gratitude of the folks who will benefit from the charity event itself: they could be neglected or abused children, or homeless families, or those in need of medical help abroad… not to mention the camaraderie of teaming up with other civic-minded performers!

ALSO: For every 15 minutes you perform, you will receive one free hour of practice time at our studio, which includes complete digital audio/video recording facilities.

Members who perform at benefits typically receive free food, drinks, T-shirts, caps and/or recreation passes from the group sponsoring the benefit.  My kids LOVE it every time I do a fair or carnival—they get to ride all the rides for free!!

All members will be listed on our website, with reciprocal links to your home page, if you have one.  Also, clips will be available online from some of the best performances at each event…
