London, January 2019: The Michelin-starred Ritz Restaurant presents Live at The Ritz, a fabulous evening of dinner, dancing and live music every Friday and Saturday, and new for 2019, Live at The Ritz is proud to introduce The London Dance Orchestra’s weekly residency each Friday night.
Under the direction of acclaimed Musical Director Robin Harris, The London Dance Orchestra is one of the UK’s most respected swing dance bands entertaining audiences with an imaginative interpretation of the American Songbook and masterful recreations of the epic sounds from the big band era during the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Renowned vocalist Iain Mackenzie (the principal vocalist at Ronnie Scott’s) will be singing most Friday evenings in the acclaimed Ritz Restaurant, accompanied by a swinging rhythm section and horn frontline.
The Ritz Restaurant is one of the few venues in the city to offer a classic combination of Michelin-starred cuisine and live entertainment. From January 2019, Friday evening guests at Live at The Ritz can enjoy a candlelit four-course menu prepared by Executive Chef John Williams MBE and his brigade, accompanied by toe-tapping rhythms, soaring melodies and honey-toned crooner vocals from The London Dance Orchestra, as well as spectacular professional dance performances punctuating the evening which guarantee to get everyone up on the dance floor!
Commenting on the new London Dance Orchestra Friday night residency, Simon Girling Director of Food and Beverage at The Ritz, said; “The Ritz Restaurant is one of the most beautiful dining rooms in the world, and perfectly lends itself to live music and entertainment, to complement the excellent food and service that we offer. We are very excited to be introducing The London Dance Orchestra every Friday evening in 2019, and to continue to surprise our guests with this truly unique experience in London”.
The London Dance Orchestra began life in Wilton’s Music Hall in Whitechapel, London, and were quickly acknowledged for their ability to execute a style of rhythmic playing which supported the dancers on the floor and has kept the band highly in demand ever since. The musicians have performed with an exceptional selection of talented artists including Van Morrison, Tom Jones, Emeli Sandé, Jools Holland, Bryan Ferry, Paloma Faith and more.
The Live at The Ritz dinner dance in The Ritz Restaurant takes place each Friday and Saturday evening from 7.30pm. For table reservations and booking information, please contact our Dining Reservations team on +44 (0)20 7300 2370 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
