SATURDAY 28 OCTOBER
Ruth Templer’s love of performing began at an early age. Starting dancing lessons at age 3, then moving more into singing in her teenage years, encouraged and tutored by her concert pianist mother.
She toured as one of the original dancers with The Bobby James Syndicate, and appeared in film clips for bands such as Daddy Cool .
Ruth began singing with The Sound Experience Big Band at age 18, then also sang with cover bands and duos - enjoying a variety of genres throughout the years.
More recently, her cabaret show “Rhythms of Love” has been very well received.
Please note: Seating is allocated by booking group. If you wish to be seated with friends booked under a different name, please contact Ella here.
