A move to Texas took me from a band I had played with all my adult life (on the side). I decided to go solo acoustic and play the originals I had done with my band and write some new songs.

I play dinner concerts when the mood strikes, playing/singing originals and doing some comedy.
Why this name?
My last name is unusual, my wife suggested using my first and middle names, hence Rich Macklin.
Do you play live?
I play dinner concerts, benefits in the North Dallas area when the mood strikes, about once a month
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The exposure potential is wonderful, I hate MP3 compression but understand the value.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I doubt any would want me..............
Band History:
Played in bands on the South Jersey Shore since the late 60's, mostly with the same group of people since college days. We survived metal and disco playing new country/country rock/southern rock/my originals, only band that was doing it.

Now, after a move and two year layoff, I am a solo originals act with some comedy.
Your influences?
Steely Dan, Eagles, Poco, Byrds, Kansas, and as I grew older classical and Broadway.
Favorite spot?
South Jersey Shore
Equipment used:
Martin Acoustics, Genz Benz amps, Presonus channel strips, Shure condensors, ProTools
Anything else...?
I love my wife, Beverly and our two Labs.
