Todd the Rocket Richard is an acclaimed DJ, emerging remixer and producer, award-winning drummer and percussionist, and musical curator/director. Based out of New England, he has been energizing events and concerts across the region, as well as performing, producing, and supervising music for labels, television, businesses, and independent artists. Recent years have seen him DJing throughout the Coastal Northeast, holding residencies in his transplanted home of Portland, ME, Boston’s North Shore, and his hometown of Nantucket Island. His style reflects his own immersion into soul music, and its infusion in to so many extensions of modern music. His DJ sets are frequently a pulling-apart of the legacy threads that tie contemporary musics together, marrying classic jazz, soul, R&B, and funk with first generation hip hop, electro-boogie, rare disco, smart pop, house, and party jams. He is a regular fixture at nightclubs, lounges, sporting events, and a first-call DJ for premier arts organizations such as Maine College of Art, Portland Music Foundation, Portland Museum of Art, and Maine Academy of Modern Music.
