  • Richard Stratton did an amazing job at my wedding on 1/16/2021. He played solo for my ceremony and cocktail hour then was joined by his member Tommy (making them “Two Katz) during the reception. They kept the party going all night and I got several compliments from our guest on the quality of their music and their song selections. I had an intimate wedding with only 20 guest so I was a little concerned on music overpowering the event, but Richard knows how to read the room and match the music to the energy. I would highly recommend him for any of your music needs wedding or otherwise!!

  • Richard was very to work with and communicated quickly with any questions I had. He played the acoustic guitar for my wedding ceremony and it was breathtakingly beautiful. We had so many compliments from our guests. Highly recommend!

  • We had Richard Stratton and the Palmetto Catz at our December wedding and they were absolutely phenomenal! They played beautiful versions of our favorite songs, had everyone dancing for HOURS and even provided a mic for toasting. Guests were complimenting the music all night and even the next day! We feel blessed to have had Richard and the Catz play on the best day of our lives.

  • We are so glad that we chose Richard to play at our wedding. The music was awesome and his website was very informative, especially with the sample songs. He is very organized and the whole process was a breeze--which was most appreciated given the chaotic nature of planning everything else.

    Thanks Michael! We loved playing for you and Inga and your wonderful friends and families. We wish you a long loving marriage. Richard

  • We got married in February at Walker’s Landing in Amelia Island. Our ceremony was outside. Richard did an amazing job! I am so glad that we hired the musical accompaniment. It really set the tone for the ceremony and our guests loved it. We got so many compliments on the music. We also had our uncle Brett sing along with Richard for a part of the ceremony. What an amazing special treat! I am so thankful that I chose you Richard for our wedding. On a side note, the groom’s father was 40 minutes late to the ceremony. Richard was a true professional and filled that time with his beautiful music. I truly could not have done it without you! Thank you again

  • Thank you, Richard, for creating a wonderful musical environment for my daughter's rehearsal dinner on Jekyll Island in February! Not only did we enjoy your beautiful singing voice and guitar playing from a distance as we ate outdoors on the lawn, but we had fun dancing to your music as well. The mood you set was pure romance (even for my husband and I married 20+ years) under the stars for the bride and groom and wedding party and family! We appreciate your friendly and professional service! And by the way -- do you sell CD's? We would like to remember your music for years to come!!

    Thanks Pam! I really appreciate your review. I will mail you a CD. Best, Richard

  • I can't say enough good things about Richard Stratton! He played for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and did a beautiful job. He was very helpful throughout the process of picking out the processional music and making sure our selections flowed nicely together. He is a such a talented musician - his music absolutely made our wedding ceremony. We still have guests complimenting the ceremony and cocktail hour music! Thank you for helping to make our day perfect, Richard!

  • Richard Stratton and the Palmetto Catz were absolutely amazing! Everyone at our wedding was so complimentary! My husband had tears in his eyes as I walked down the aisle to A Thousand Years by Christina Perri, this fulfilled his dreams. The reception was so fun dancing and singing along to one awesome song after another. I want to plan another event just to have them play!!

    Wow. thanks Heather. We are humbled by your lovely words.

    Lauren, The ceremony tunes that you picked worked out perfectly timing-wise. This happens so rarely that I just had to mention it. Thanks!

  • We had originally considered not having live music for our ceremony and cocktail hour and after going thru this and having Richard play for our ceremony and cocktail hour we realized what a great addition Richard was for our event. He was amazing!

  • Richard was easy to work with and incredibly responsive. He provided honest feedback on what he thought would work best for our ceremony and cocktail hour music - a fantastic quality to have when you're a multi-tasking bride and groom trying to make all the right decisions for your wedding. He also learned songs for us, which were delivered beautifully on the day of our wedding. Highly recommended.

    Thanks Alexis...Kyle and I really enjoyed playing for you and your families. We especially like the River House and working with your coordinator Monica Dowd.

  • Rick and the rest of the Palmetto Catz did a fantastic job at our wedding on Jekyll Island. They were perfect for the reception room and were able to change tone and tempo at the appropriate moments. They had a great song selection played everything we requested in advance of our wedding. Thank you so much for making our experience that much better!

  • We couldn't have been more pleased with Richard Stratton and Two Katz! Everyone raved about the music that they played during our son's rehearsal dinner. Richard was also great to deal with during the planning period. You can't go wrong using him!
