“Our first Valentines dinner was an outstanding success. I would like to thank Ritchie for making our evening so enjoyable. Ritchie was amazing, everyone thought he was wonderful. He made the evening very special and romantic for all of us. He seems to know the words to every song ever made. He really is a very talented and mesmerising man. He had the audience in the palm of his hand. We will definitely be repeating this again next year. Thanks for all your support once again.”

Mansfield Town Football Club

“You will remember that you helped me to engage Ritchie for my event which was held on Saturday. What a fantastic event it was! Mainly because of Ritchie. He was absolutely amazing and had everyone on the dance floor within minutes. Barbara was a delight from booking stage through to the night itself, a fabulous couple. I had 130 guests and my target was £6,500. I raised £9,000 for St. Gemma’s Hospice. I am absolutely thrilled and this takes my total to date to almost £40,000. Ritchie certainly made the event such a very special occasion. Wow! Everyone is talking about him. You made it so easy for me in the period leading up to the event. You are such professionals and I am very grateful to you both. If anyone is ever in doubt whether to book you for an event, just give them my number! With grateful thanks and kind regards to you both.”
– Kairen Brown

“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 at 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 serves 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.”
