"Steve Ritchie performed at my mother's 90th Birthday Party in front of 25 guests. His performance was perfect in every way and nothing was too much trouble for him. He was absolutely professional and sang very well indeed to the delight of all present. He is also a friendly, down-to-earth and charismatic character. His presence contributed greatly to the success of the function and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
Despite the above his pricing is very competitive compared to most of the quotes I received.
Well done Steve!"

We were very very satisfied with steve.
We booked him for a 40th birthday party in our local pub.
Steve was great. He's a great singer with a wide range of songs, young and old.
Everyone in the pub agreed that we need to get him back, for another great night.
