TELL US ABOUT THE MUSIC
The Ritz Trio provided the perfect musical accompaniment to our Garden Party setting. Their lively, yet subtle set was the perfect backdrop to allow our guests to eat, drink and dance the afternoon away with a fun, sophisticated edge. They certainly looked the part and blended in perfectly with the chic garden party look.

The Ritz Trio enjoyed a sunny weekend playing in Old Meldrum. The Trio originally played for couple’s engagement party a year ago then for the actual wedding and post wedding BBQ. It was a gloriously sunny weekend enjoyed by all!

A Big Thank You….

Thank you very very much for the awesome music you and the guys played and the vibe you created over the Friday and Saturday afternoons. We genuinely couldn’t have asked for a better bunch of musicians to play on what was the best weekend of our lives.

We have been telling everyone who you are as we kept getting asked, hopefully you get a few more gigs out of this.

The Ritz Trio performed at the Scottish Parliament building this week on behalf of the Scottish Woodland Trust.

“Thanks for being part of our Scottish Parliamentary reception this week – the saxophone / guitar combo hit the perfect note for our celebration of Scottish Tree of the Year 2017, our special volunteers and our generous supporters. Thanks for being so flexible with the timing too – we would have loved to have you play for longer but parliamentarians are hard workers and their late exit from the chamber meant a shorter than anticipated musical interlude! But it was all the sweeter for it J. Hiring jazz musicians isn’t an everyday occurrence for a woodland conservation charity, but I hope we can find an excuse to work with you again soon.”

Royal engagement for the Ritz Trio

By |September 8th, 2017|News|0 Comments

The Ritz Trio played for Prince Charles this week at an event marking the tenth anniversary of the rescue of Dumfries House.
In 2007, the stately home, nestled in the Ayrshire countryside, was about to be sold off but Prince Charles decided to use his various charities to buy it – and save the house for the nation. Rain failed to dampen the spirits of the garden party and the Ritz Trio with special guests Seonaid Aitkin (Violin) and Fraser Urquart (Piano) had a fun afternoon!
