Skatt Bros. 1979 -1981
The Skatt Bros. enjoyed success on both the Pop and Dance charts in various parts of the world. At one point, they had 3 songs at #6 on Billboard's Top 100 Dance Chart, plus a gold record in Australia called "Life At The Outpost".
Having extraordinary vocal ability, and with each member being a songwriter, came the creation of a diverse and eclectic catalog of songs which encompassed many formats, such as Pop, Dance, Country, R & B, and Rock 'n Roll.
It was with fellow band member David Andez that Richie helped co-write the Casablanca Records Classic "Walk The Night", which became a hit in clubs all over the world for The Skatt Bros.
