Ruta is an exciting acoustic singer/guitarist with a broad and surprising repertoire - pop and Latin jazz. Perfect for your event!

I have two different and very exciting projects to offer: 1.Pop covers (Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Beyonce, Daft Punk, Amy Winehouse, Whitney Houston, Rihanna, Calvin Harris and many more). 2.Latin Jazz/Jazz Project (Mas Que Nada, Girl From Ipanema, Summertime, Fever, Besame Mucho). I have performed at Birkbeck University Business Week, Three Lions venue in Wembley Stadium during Arsenal - Chelsea match, Cassandra Goad Anniversary, St Martin-in-the-fields, La Meridien Piccadilly Hotel, Park Plaza Westminster, Park Plaza Riverbank, Scotch and Soda event and many more! I have my own sound system so you do not have to worry about sound engineer or PA system. We can tailor our band to fit your needs - solo, duet, trio, quartet (vocals, guitar, bass, drums/percussion, saxophone/trumpet). Give me a call or drop me an email today for more details and we can book a gig.

We booked the band for our wedding in London on the 6th October. We had previously seen Ruta perform before and loved It! All I can say is that everyone who attended the wedding has made comment on how much they enjoyed the band and their songs. We loved it too.

Little Boat – Bossa Nova Ensemble, are talented professional musicians with an excellent repertoire of Latin American music. Little Boat played on two evenings of Business Week 2014 at Birkbeck, University of London to the delight of guests, mostly London professionals, UK and international academics. Having Little Boat play at your event is an excellent way to provide an upbeat atmosphere for networking or similar. These accomplished young musicians are astute and aware of their environment, able to fill the room with pleasant and funky music at just the right volume levels required. I would happily hire Little Boat again and endorse fully.

If you're looking for a three piece bossanova band to play at your party I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better one than Ruta. They arrived in plenty of time with no fuss setting up and were a pleasure to have around. They played throughout the evening and the standard was excellent . Lovely people , lovely music and very professional to boot.
