Ray Ritchie has a wealth of experience in the field of entertainment starting as a rock singer. he and his band did rock & roll cover versions of Little Richard, Fat's Domino, Ray Charles.
Ray later added two beautiful girls as part of his show now named "Ray Ritchie with curls" the novelty and excitement of his act was a big hit leading to an invitation to appear on tv's "search for a star show.
Ray Ritchie with curls" and his backing band enjoyed a lot of success throughout the whole period. However at that time Ray felt his true musical love lay in the rich powerful sounds of the big ... band and swing era. Ray folded the current show and created his own solo cabaret stage show.
His show took him all over the UK and Ireland playing in large music halls and small intimate concert rooms. Ray also played guitar and piano which he incorporated into his show.
In the early days Ray's show was so well received by audiences and clubs in the UK that he achieved the accolade of being voted "Male Vocalist Of The Year" at the "Midland Variety Command Award Show."
In the 90's Ray purchased a hotel in England and created a show lounge. Keeping the same theme Ray regularly booked artist's of that era, Emile Ford, Richie Valance etc. His show lounge met with success and it gave him valuable experience as show Compare/Manager/Producer.
Ray Ritchie put together his new show with his girl backing group "The Rayettes" The show was predominantly soul and blues. His show was well received by audiences in Germany and Sweden where they toured.
Ray's swing stage show has taken him to America, South Africa, Italy, Gibraltar, Cyprus, Great Britain, Sweden, Norway and the Mediterraneas.
Ray Ritchie lived and worked in Cyprus doing his Cabaret Shows throughout southern Cyprus, and also diversified and went into the field of Voice Overs by creating his own studio and business, creating some jingles for US tv and radio and commentary for corporate companies and documentaries. He also ventured into radio and did a period of time as a radio presenter.
Right now still going strong with his swing and soul shows, and going to try a new field by doing a little bit of acting as an extra etc and working up.
