Despite the difficult financial climate the Ritz Trio have taken an increased number bookings from wedding parties at venues including Drumtochy Castle, Balbirnie House, Grosvenor Hilton, 1 Devonshire Gardens, Royal College Of Physicians, Hopetoun House, Archerfield House, Duns Castle, Gleneagles Hotel, Solsgirth House and The Marcliffe at Pitfodels. Band leader Marcus Ford says “I am encouraged by the not only the number of engagements the band have taken for 2012 but also the types of venues which echo our ethos of offering high quality entertainment and service.”
