I had a blast last weekend performing an ode to Chuck Berry playing ‘Johnny B. Goode’ on national tv at a show called ‘Matthijs Gaat Door’. Trading solos with Menno Gootjes, Jêrome Hol and Sonia Anubis, all within the steady groove of the Sven Hammond Big Band.
Also special thanks to an exceptional production team and technical team who are among the best and make you feel right at home and focus on the music.
“I guess you guys aren’t ready for that, yet. But your kids are gonna love it.”
The ‘RHP live’ dvd came in and it looks really awesome! It’s great to listen to the high res dvd audio together with the video.
The preorder packages are all sent out this weekend and depending on your country, you will receive the goods already this weekend or sometime coming week. You will also receive a mail with discount codes and links to interviews and lessons.
The music from this dvd will also be available on all streaming media soon.
Thanks pre-orderers for your support and making this one happen! I owe you one!

The gig we did a couple of weeks ago, march 12, 2022, with Richard Hallebeek Project together with Scott Henderson and Frank Gambale was a huge succes. The venue was sold out! It was great fun meeting Scott and Frank again after many years. You can watch some pictures of the event here:
I’m currently mixing a dvd of us playing the same venue a couple of months earlier. I’m back in the studio mixing and editing and will start preorder for the new dvd soon. It will also feature high quality dvd audio, so worth the wait!

Over the past year, I have been working closely together with Dutch custom guitar builder Haar Guitars on a Richard Hallebeek signature model. After a lot of finetuning and prototype testing, we’re approaching the last phase and starting production on a limited edition custom run of Richard Hallebeek RH-1 signature guitars end of 2020!
This guitar has all the specs I have accumulated over the past 41 years of playing that suit my style of playing and sound and I think work great for everybody in this style of music. I can’t wait to get the guitar out there and in your hands, so you know what I’m talking about! We ship worldwide – detailed specs and pics coming soon!
