Richard Kuncicky is a musician and composer from Saint Augustine, Florida. For years his solo instrumental music on the guitar has entertained people from around the world as they've passed through this quaint Florida city. His fingerstyle arrangements of standards and popular songs along with his original compositions are truly a treat to experience.
Starting in the early 80's Richard spent twelve years as a regular musician at the Milltop Tavern (p/k/a Rick Kyson) before moving over to The Cafe Alcazar in the Lightner Museum. He was a full time musician at the Alcazar for over eleven years until in 2010 the Cafe Alcazar changed ownership along with its choice to add a solo pianist. Richard is there now only on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. After all these years people still pass through to say "Hello" on their annual visits to Saint Augustine. Richard now splits his time between Saint Augustine, FL and Hendersonville, NC.
When in the Saint Augustine area, Richard still performs for many private functions about town at various art galleries, inns, resorts, country clubs and restaurants. He also provides the music at numerous weddings and wedding receptions. When he is in town you can find him performing at the The Reef every Sunday for their brunch from 10:30 am until 3:00 pm and at The Cafe Alcazar every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 12:00 noon until 2:30 pm. and at the Turtle Shack Cafe in Flagler Beach on Thursdays and Sundays from 5:30 pm until 8:30 pm.
"When in Hendersonville, North Carolina you can find me playing occasionally in Brevard at
The Lucy Clark Gallery, in the Hendersonville area at Burntshirt Vineyards, the Gallery at Flat Rock, the Marsha Hammel Studio along with regular
gigs at the Hendersonville Market. I've just added bookings at the Lake Lure Market. I like to busk at D9 Brewery on Main Street when ever I can.
Being new in town, it has been slow getting started... I am always open to suggestions for new places to play.
