Dick Bourgault is a native of New Hampshire. He is classically trained in piano and trumpet. He has played in several bands and as a solo artist for many years. He also did studio keyboards for producers such as Andrew Loog Oldham (Rolling Stones) and Teacho Wiltshire. He has performed primarily throughout New England, New York, & Michigan .
Remember the "Stolen Peaches": a regular band for those large dance casinos in Old Orchard Beach; Salisbury Beach; York Beach; Nantasket Beach; Hampton Beach; Weirs Beach; and the Pavilion in Portsmouth? Then 2 summers as the house band at the Forefather''s Inn in Kennebunkport? (the 2nd year as "Berceuse") In the 70s and 80s, Dick was also involved in many musical theater productions in regional and local theaters, as a musical director and actor/singer.
His musical styles range from jazz,world, blues, rock, pop, New Age, techno: to just about anything that he imagines while playing in his home studio. His voice has been compared to Billy Joel''s, John Lennon''s, and Elton John''s. His styles are similar to Sting, the Alan Parson Project, and Bob James, among others.
Dick mixes up the selections on "Summer Nights" with some catchy melodies, straight forward, well sung vocals, interspersed with catchy, fun, and up-beat creative instrumentals. Simple melodic phrasings are often couched in complex, and interesting instrumental arrangements. Many people who have purchased "Summer Nights" or Dick''s previous CD, "Acts of Reason", have expressed how much they enjoy listening to his music while driving or relaxing at home. The variety of styles and diversity tend to keep people engaged for the entire CD; time after time.
