Hi Everyone,

This is mainly for all the people here on facebook in the surrounding
Charleston W. Va. area.

I had a talk with Bob Anderson in south Charleston this morning and we’ve
agreed on me performing a concert there at the LaBelle Theatre on Saturday
night, april 2nd. Most likely 8:00 starting time, unless we get a lot of
people to come out and then, I would need to do 2 shows.

I was born at 9-11 E street and raised at 102 F street and the LaBelle is
only about 2 to 3 blocks from both of them on D street between 3rd & 4th
Ave. Talking about a wonderful nostalgic time for me. I used to go there
to see movies when I was a very little young boy and when I still had some
eye-sight. I will probably have to hold back some tears, it will be 1 of my
greatest memories of singing in my whole career and that spans 54 years.
Darn! Am I that old? Hahaha

I will be selling my 4 CDS and probably packaging them for $30 there’s 2
secular CDs and 2 christian CDS and if people just want to buy 1 of them
then, it will be $12. I would love for people to bring there cameras and
phone videos and shoot away hopefully posting them on facebook. I will talk
a lot about being raised there and some of my crazy things that happened in
New York where I lived for about 9 years.

I know that no one there has ever seen me in concert, only in a club or
outside at the Mound. I’m a very experienced concert performer & there is a
drastic difference.

I will be putting about 20 songs from my recorded albums and singles
spanning about 16 years. at a link on my website (www.turleyrichards.com)
and they will be free for you to download for 30 days. I will write a blog
to let everyone know hwen this is available.

If you would like to know more about me, go to my site and click away.
There’s a lot of info about me and my fairly successful recording career.
Read my shortened life story check out all the major stars I toured with and
shared the stage and all the major TV shows I performed on as well.

The very next night Sunday April 3rd, I will be doing another concert in New
Martinsville W. Va. This is just past Parkersburg and should be a great
night. Exciting time about to start up for me. I want to sing more this
year and I’m gonna do it for sure.

I’m thinking about getting people committed in advance for the tickets. $7
at the door and $6 in advanced. The LaBelle only holds 300 and I really
hope I can fill it up but, I don’t want to lose people because we sold out
and they can’t get in. This will be a way for me to figure out what kind of
crowd will be attending.

Also, here in Louisville, my adopted howm town, we’re working on getting a
tour bus and having people here to go up to So. Charleston for the concert
and having breakfast the next morning but, that’s in the early stages of
planning. I’ll keep you abreast of that as well.

So, I am so looking forward to this performance and I will love seeing lots
of the old friends and making new ones.

I’ll be back here very soon. If you would like to write a personal email to
me, please send it to: turley@turleyrichards.com

Catch you all later,

Turley & for my W V friends, Richard hahaha
