Richard Chase

Singer-songwriter, Richard Chase brings his 20-plus years of  
performance and song-writing skills to Wendell's famed Full Moon  
Coffeehouse capping off their 26th season supporting benefits with  
great entertainment.
Warm and engaging stage presence, heartfelt lyrics, seasoned guitar- 
smooth singing: all add up to Richard Chase.
Chase will be performing both solo, and with his well-synced back-up  
band featuring drummer Seth Hoffsommer, guitarist John Miller, and  
bassist Bryan Barstow.

Chase's songs are fresh and honest and reveal an introspective mind  
unafraid to probe feelings each of us can identify with: songs about   
fear, hope, love and celebration.

"Chase writes songs where reality and dreams collide. A seasoned and  
working performer, Richard is steadily sharpening his stagecraft --  
his shows are always uplifting, and deliver the unexpected. In a good  
way, you will be transported."

Whether you are moved to dance, tap your feet, or hum along with a  
tune that you know (or will soon recognize), you will not be  
disappointed.  The music draws you in to its world - one that is full  
and varied and will leave you completely satisfied.

  Although Richard Chase and his quartet were one of the featured  
acts playing to a standing-room-only audience  at a recent Wendell  
Full Moon Coffeehouse show (the 'Full Moon Follies Show'), This is  
his first time as the main feature for the coffeehouse. Richard has  
also performed at three Northampton Music Festivals,   many an annual  
'Starry Starry Night' - a gala New Year's event held in Orange,  
Massachusetts, as well as the The annual Garlic and Arts Festival  
also in Orange.

"Richard Chase is an incredibly talented and thoughtful performer.  
His sensitivity and genuine affinity for his audience is returned by  
their appreciation and down-right love for his music."  (Manuel King  
- founder of the Starry Starry Night New Year's Eve Celebration)

Seth Hoffsommer has performed and taught drums and percussion in a  
wide variety of musical settings for over twenty years. Seth has  
studied with the likes of Alan Dawson, Robert Kaufman and  Gregory  
Caputo and has numerous performance and recording credits.  Seth  
lives in Millers Falls with his wife Camilla.

John Miller attended Keene State College where he majored in music  
performance. A well known musician in the local scene, John is a  
musician's musician who is proficient in all styles and has been  
playing and recording with various artists over the last ten years.  
In addition to guitar, John also plays bass, piano, mandolin and

Bryan Barstow resides in Barre and is a talented and much sought  
after bassist who is currently involved in no less than three widely  
varied musical and recording projects. We are very fortunate to have  
the talents of Bryan.

"Richard Chase's uplifting vibe, calming voice, and tasteful, honest  
writing soothe my soul..."(Ethan Stone- writer, performer, & founder  
Tool Town Live!)
