Reviews

From customers:

SKY T, 2 years ago

Outstanding , talented singer & guitarist

Styx C, 1 year ago

The best act we have had in our venue and the best New years Eve show we have had in Styx nightclub, and lounge bar. The variety of music performed and sung and the quality of musicianship was unlike anything we have seen. As a function 2 piece band Ritz sounded like a 5 piece band. Gordons abilty to read the crowd and supply a range of music covering all tastes was perfect, and created a great audience response all evening. Its also the first time we havent had any volume problems with an act or band. The inclusion of live drums as a 2 piece band was really different and makes a different impact. The Traditional Scottish music dances and big band numbers had the real feel with the live drums. We booked them immediately for new Year 2018 at the end of the night.
