Singer

Public liability insurance of £10 million

Ruth is a sensational vintage singer who will add old-style pizzazz to your party, event, wedding or corporate function. She’ll take you back to a golden age of glamour and song; marvellous melodies made famous by artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simon, Dinah Washington, Judy Garland, and many more. Ruth also loves to perform contemporary numbers with a vintage twist, everything from Beyonce and Madonna to Blondie and Britney. Fifties and sixties numbers are also in her repertoire if you’re looking for a slightly more recent vintage vibe. For those throwing a 1920s or Peaky Blinders style bash then Ruth has a specific roaring 20s set which will add a decadent twenties vibe to your event. Whatever the event, the performance is not just about the music, the whole look is also important to Ruth. She always wears the glammest of dresses-to-die-for and creates a whole vintage experience. Whether you’re looking for background vocals to add some ambiance to your party or you’d prefer more audience interaction, Ruth is an experienced artist and can provide either of these options. All equipment is PAT tested and Ruth has public liability insurance as well as being a member of Equity.

As an Independent Wedding and Event Planner responsible for creating many luxurious weddings and private parties, it is always a pleasure for me to recommend Ruth Getz to even the most discerning clients. Having operated in the events Industry for over ten years and having worked alongside Ruth on numerous occasions, I can honestly say there very few entertainers I have encountered who consistently demonstrate the same combination of charisma and talent. She is an incredibly talented performer and an absolute joy to work with. As such, I have no hesitation whatsoever in wholeheartedly endorsing her services. Helen Davies www.withhelendavies.com

Ruth is simply wonderful, she can create a beautiful atmosphere for many occasions. I first heard Ruth at a wedding fayre and have been keen to secure her for a date ever since. Ruth performed for us at Christmas and is due to perform for us again in the near future. Ruth is super flexible and is keen and willing to help make any event work. I cannot wait to hear Ruth again.
