“Just a brief note to thank you for your performance last Saturday evening at The Venue. It was absolutely brilliant. From the minute you entered the room singing, the dance floor was buzzing and it could have gone on all night for me, it was excellent. We have had lots of great feedback and will definitely be re-booking you for another appearance, Hope you enjoyed the evening as much as myself and all our customers. Thanks again!”
Adrian Moore, The Venue @ Bowers Mill, Halifax.
“Once again, we had the pleasure of working at The Venue, Halifax on a night when Ritchie Penrose, an amazing soul singer was performing. The venue serve a fantastic meal, in a large room with great ambience, and the space allows the singer to move around the audience, singing personally to some of the guests (can be specially arranged if anyone has a birthday or anniversary). I don’t think I have ever met a more talented, likeable and downright nice guy. I hope these photos do him justice. To have one of the best soul singers around performing at one of the best venues in Yorkshire always makes for a great night.”
