Ruth played at our festival on Saturday 27th July to around 350 people and her voice was really beautiful, She arrived in good time and was very polite and professional. Ruth had the tough lunchtime slot - the festival goers are usually recovering from a heavy one the night before. However, within no time at all the dance floor was packed - they just couldn't get enough of her!
I just wanted to thank you for Sunday – I’ve had some lovely comments about the Father’s Day lunch entertainment. Hope to get you back here again.

We asked Ruth to sing as we were walking down the isle and she was absolutely incredible. She made our moment so special and we can't thank her enough. Would highly recommend to anyone! Natasha & Andy xxx
Ruth you were brilliant and everyone loved your performance! We hope to invite you back to one of our events in the future. Thank you so much for a lovely evening, you have an amazing voice!
I initially heard about Ruth from a friend of mine who had seen her performing at a pub in East Sussex, he had told me that he'd never heard a woman singing Led Zeppelin or Ac/Dc before and this had really caught his attention in a good way!!! My partner and I had been searching for a singer for our party for such a long while but hadn't had any success. Both of us are really into our music and that makes us very picky indeed! Our friend managed to get Ruth's contact details after seeing her again at a different venue where she was performing a jazz set! We listened to her music online and quite frankly couldn't believe our ears! She was perfect for our party! She sings EVERYTHING!! Ruth was such a professional, she made sure that we were happy with the set lists and even sent us sample set lists to look over. She was punctual and although the party was very large and rather loud it didn't seem to phase her at all. I can't thank Ruth enough for the performance that she gave. From start to finish she had everyone entertained. There were songs for everyone that was there, young and old, she has such a huge vocal range and ability to make the songs sound like her own. Everybody loved her! It was a really memorable evening and I do hope to book Ruth again in the future. I highly recommend Ruth to anyone that is seeking a female vocalist bursting with talent! Absolutely blown away!
Private Party, East Sussex
Ruth was excellent, beyond excellent. Sublime performance as she knew exactly how to set the mood and then build upon that. 90% of my guests made a point of coming up to me and commenting on her voice and appearance. I wanted to make sure that WE did her justice by dancing and appreciating her performance. I know several wanted to book her for their own functions later this year and some next so expect some calls or emails. Ruth went out of her way to move her start time as our meal took longer than expected and we didn't want to eat during her wonder performance. She was super flexible and a big thank you for that Ruth.
Private Party, Spa Hotel Tunbridge Wells
Ruth was so glamorous and adaptable when there was a change in the style of music. She again was a complete professional and wowed the audience with her stunning voice.
Corporate Event at Hotel Football Manchester
Hi Ruth, Having now recovered from a very hectic birthday weekend we would like to tell you how much you contributed to our evening. I know it may sound strange but you were even better than we had anticipated from listening to your demo songs on the websites and you turned what could have been a slightly difficult venue in to an absolute success. We appreciate that ours was probably quite a modest little affair compared to your normal outings but you got our crew dancing virtually from the beginning and throughout the entire evening. Each and a very track was a delight and Nutbush City Limits a triumph. I bet you groaned when you had to end the evening with Tiger Feet but you have to remember that's a classic track for us lot and boy did you nail it...... Ruth, thank you so much for making what was always going to be a good party into a great one. We wish you every success with your career and, if you can put up with us old boys and gals again, we might well be in touch in the future. Regards, Nigel & Alison Hargreaves
Hey Ruth, Just wanted to say that you absolutely "made" the evening with your fantastic choice of varied songs and incredible singing voice..... Can't begin to say how many of the 90 or so people that attended raved about you...although I'm certain loads of them "raved" to you directly.... Our next Soirée you will be first one on the invite list!!! I've already been requested to pass on your contact details to several of the partygoers who may be planning a"do" soon...hope that's ok with you??? Thanks again for making our party such an incredible success.... Hope all goes well for you in the future.
We asked Ruth to come to Devon to sing at our wedding, it was in the garden and a very laid back party - she was fantastic. An amazing voice and everybody loved her, a long way to come but thank you so much Ruth, you really made the night!
Richard & Aisling
“Ruth was an absolute delight and has an incredible voice. She has an amazing repertoire that appeals to all ages and fills the dance floor from the moment she starts singing. Ruth's energy and stunning vocals made our event a great success. We can't thank Ruth highly enough. Can't wait to see Ruth perform again.”
"Ruth has an amazing soulful voice.
She made our wedding night, learning our first dance song and playing a mix of sets which had us and the guests dancing all night long! Ruth was incredibly flexible on the day as we started the evening's entertainment later than planned and ran our iPhone playlists seamlessly inbetween. We had really great comments from guests and would recommend her to anyone. Thank you again Ruth for singing at our wedding, you have an incredible talent! I had friends who are normally quite reserved, who didn't leave the floor they loved the music so much!" "
The newly married Mr & Mrs Simpson
"We were really struggling to find a singer/band to play at our wedding even though we had listened to quite a few but nothing stood out about them. This was until I went to the mayoress's charity event in Brighton with a friend and we heard Ruth sing. We immediately were blown away by her, not only by her beautiful voice, but her ability to sing a wide variety of songs of different eras and genres. I just knew that she had to play at our wedding! After my husband to be had heard her and was impressed too, I got in contact with Ruth and she was very efficient and accommodated all our needs. At the wedding, she was just as amazing and put her own slant on the music. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and remarked how wonderful she was. Friends and family that wouldn't normally dance got up as she was very entertaining and had a great aura and stage presence. Would highly recommend her and my family and friends are looking forward to seeing her at gigs in the local area as cannot wait to hear her sing again and she gives you a real buzz!"
“Brill, brill, brill, amazing voice and by god you can sing, you deserve to be a star.”
“Ruth you were the best, you really made our party, we all fell in love with you, unbelievable singer, such a lovely person, and really up for a great great time, we can't thank you enough, everyone was texting me yesterday telling me how amazing you were, fingers xxx for your future you really deserve to be a star, and we can say you sang in our garden!!! Xxxx.”
“Ruth you were awesome on Saturday night thank you so much for not calling time on us and hearing our 'more, more' plea's!!!!! Good luck for your future!!!! Xx.”
“You were amazing Ruth, in fact, FABULOUS xxx”
“Ruth, amazing voice and thank you for keeping going, it made the party, although seeing my drunken dancing on Facebook yesterday maybe you should have stopped earlier!!!! You have a promising career ahead xx”
"I would certainly book Ruth again for any future events without hesitation. Pleasure to work with. She was very friendly and extremely professional and the performance was fantastic. Ruth was an absolute delight and would certainly recommend her.”
“Ruth was a great addition to Live Music Vault at Vinopolis.
Visitors to the Wine Tasting Experience enjoyed listening to to her
perform upbeat classics throughout the night, a fantastic voice and
we would welcome Ruth back”
“Ruth was fantastic entertainment for my 40th birthday party .
All my guests enjoyed listening & dancing to to her set that she had put together especially for my 1970's themed evening. She has a fantastic voice, great stage presence and we would definitely book Ruth again”
“We honestly cannot recommend Ruth highly enough - not only does she have a fantastic voice and a huge repertoire, she's also a beautiful girl with a very warm and friendly personality. Ruth's pre-gig communication was excellent and she absolutely nailed the song request that we asked for even though it was outside her normal comfort zone. She also put her own spin on a couple of classic songs that brought the whole crowd to their feet! If you're looking for an exceptional solo singer for any event, do yourself a favour - book Ruth now!”
"Having Ruth sing at my birthday was more than I could ever have wanted. It was a fantastic surprise and she sang all of my favourite songs to perfection! Ruth really made my 60th birthday one to remember indeed. Everyone loved her and we will definitely be booking her in the future."
