Simon, Private Event, January 2020

“Saw Ricky Ray at The Greyhound in Leigh last night for a New Year's bash, he was great. He had the audience eating out of his hand, everybody enjoyed him. Very professional, superb voice, big array of music, friendly, very smart. I'll make the effort to see him again, thanks for the entertaining evening!”

“The entertainment over dinner was incredible. It totally transformed the atmosphere in the room and it created a really romantic and classy vibe. Ricky's professionalism and powerful voice played a massive part in transforming our wedding from 'Great' to 'totally amazing' and I just wish I could keep him a secret and book once a week!”
