Ex 'Yes' frontman and now a regular on Grumpy Old Men, Rick Wakeman's after dinner cabaret combines his incredible musical talent and great gift of humour.

Rick is one of the best piano players in the world and his career took him from the band Spinning Wheel in the 70s to the classic rock band The Strawbs and in 1971 Rick joined YES who established itself worldwide as one of the leaders in contemporary rock music.

Rick made his first critically acclaimed album in 1972 'The Six Wives of Henry Vlll' and around this time pioneered the idea of playing more than one keyboard at once, by putting them on top of one another.

In 1974 Rick recorded 'Journey To The Centre of The Earth' with The London Symphony Orchestra with the resulting record appearing in the top ten of virtually every country in the world.

His next album was 'The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and The Knights of The Round Table' and many album releases and worldwide tours later Rick is still an extraordinary musician, truly extra-ordinary.

A very funny guy and for corporate events and parties Rick shows a wonderful sense of humour as he chats to the audience before giving a truly mesmerising and electrifying performance.

Also suitable for after all types of After Dinner engagements and highly recommended.
