I've just got back from L-Fest in Uttoxeter, where as well as performing in " All The Nice Girls" with my partner, Ali Child I was on the Green Stage for BoiBox. It was the first time I've been to L-Fest and I though it was a fantastic event. I thoroughly recommend it for next year. Everything about it was quality, from the artists and performers to the organisation of the festival. Well done Cindy Edwards and everyone else who made it happen. I'm delighted to have been part of it.

I was delighted to appear at two recent gigs in March and April. First up was the March BoiBox. The Boi-ing 747 theme was a good opportunity to sing the ever popular "Fly Me To The Moon" and "Come Fly With Me". I love Frank Sinatra, so any chance to swing out is taken with gusto!
Then I appeared at the Fabulous Fifties Evening. My fifties-style lounge singer set opened the show, and the fabulous Ade Harvey and the Stuntmen and DJ Lonesome M made sure that the keen Jivers and Lindy-Hoppers stayed on the dance floor until the close of the event. It was a very successful evening with over £1000 raised for aid to Zanzibar dentistry.

I had a fab time at The Brighton Fringe this year. This was an opportunity to perform to festival goers who had selected my gig from the many publicised in the official fringe promotional material. The audiences consisted of many who had never seen me before, which was great for me in terms of raising my profile. And I got some really great feedback from them. A deal with the venue meant that admission was free to this event, but one man went out of his way to offer me £20 at the end of my set because he thought I was more than worth it! I didn't accept of course - that wouldn't have been fair as nobody else had paid. But I suggested that he spread to word to his friends about Ronnie Rialto, and he said he would definitely come to see me again.
So all in all a very enjoyable run at the Cubar - I hope to back at the Fringe next year!
Next up is a private party in Salisbury on 27th June followed by a return to one of my favourite places the lovely, intimate Rabbit Hole Bar in Brighton on 5th July. I'll be blogging about those soon after.

I've been neglecting my blog duties of late - but that's not because there's nothing to report! In fact the opposite! Since my last post I've appeared at the wonderful Boi Box at the Candy Bar, Soho twice. Firstly at the 'Club Tropicana' night on 13th November and then at 'Christmas Jumpers' on 11th December.
Boi Box is hosted by the debonair dandy Adam 'All and his very glamorous assistant Apple Derrieres and a more fun all-inclusive night out could not be had elsewhere! I thoroughly recommend it!
I also had a ball at Brenda's 64th birthday party. This was my first opportunity to perform at The Bedford Arms in Brighton. Matt, the guvnor had seen me before fleetingly at The Grosvenor Bar but always had to rush off to tend his own bar. He was a brilliant host and Brenda, who is a Bedford regular had a wonderful time celebrating her birthday with all her friends.
Saturday 14th December saw my debut at Cubar, a cocktail bar under new management in Preston Street in Brighton. The bar is now run by a sister and brother combo; Sophia and Nick. The theme for a chillout Saturday afternoon was a Cheese & Wine Party. Sophia really did her homework and presented a platter of different cheeses arranged in an order so as not to ruin the palate for each one & wines to complement each cheese. My friends who attended really loved the concept and execution of it and we all look forward to a repeat event in the near future.
I'll be returning to Cubar in January & February. Look out for future gigs from me on my events page.

What a great time I had:
On Tuesday I performed at the Aeolian Village Poolside Bar, and then on Wednesday an impromptu performance, encouraged by Jazz & Blues performer Nicky Mitchell who was hosting at Roots Bar, followed by the highlight of the week for me which was opening the Fashion Show, on the Festival Main Stage in the open cinema in the centre of Skala Eressos.
It was a fantastic event, the place was packed to the gunnells with gorgeous women who gave me an incredible reception and were really in a party mood. Eressos Villagers were treated to an awesome rendition of Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You as everybody present joined in. If there had been a roof we would definitely have raised it!
Following my performance was the hugely enjoyable Fashion Show where locals and visitors strutted their stuff up and down the catwalk modelling clothes, jewellery and accessories mainly from the local shops and businesses who sponsor the event. The obvious exception to this was the inclusion of designs from British underwear company, FOCX. The event was excellently compered by Lucy Davina Checkley.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to my amazing holiday: Faye, DJ XXRP, DJ Wendy, DJ Heidi, Nicky Mitchell, Amity (loved your show on Sunday night) Vicky from Roots and all the lovely Skala Womens Rock Group and Animal Welfare Organisation.
Thanks too to Joanna from Sappho Travel, without whom the festival wouldn't happen.
Hopefully I haven't forgotten anybody - If I have - apologies I love you too!
Finally, at the risk of sounding like the recipient of an Oscar, I'd like to say thanks to my friend, supporter and travelling companion Mandy, and to our little holiday friendship group which included people from Leeds & Worcester . Thanks Guys - it was a complete blast!
