He also joined George Clinton onstage, and returned later for an encore with Kyle Eastwood, drummer Omar Hakim, Chic's background singer Silver & Festival creator Claude Nobs on harmonica. Percussionist, Gerardo Velez, who also performed with Jimi Hendrix at Monterey Festival in 1970, also made a guest appearance with Richards. "Performing at Montreux Jazz Festival is the highlight of my professional career. I'm honored to have been included in this festival with Alicia Keys, B.B. King, Seal, and Carlos Santana, and so many other artists of that stature,' remarked Richards. Teddy also conducted a songwriting workshops & music business seminar at Le Petit Palais and has been invited to return next year. 'I work very hard at my craft; this festival is the fruit of my labor.' For tour information and more, visit teddyrichards.com.”
