Jazz, Swing & Latin Trio
The Ritz Trio is a busy, professional, function band consisting of musicians who have been performing together for over fifteen years.
The music is a mixture of Jazz, Swing and Latin with a repertoire ranging from dinner and cocktail classics such as “The Girl from Ipanema” and “Take Five”, to the more modern end of the spectrum. The Trio are able to tune the mood substantially for your wedding or event, blending into the background during the reception so that guests can mingle and talk, or cooking up a little more energy later if required.
The Ritz Trio is the resident band on the Royal Yacht Britannia and are accustomed to playing at other prestigious venues including Skibo Castle, The Old Course Hotel, Gleneagles, Hopetoun House and Rufflets.
