Virgil Ellis is a versatile solo performer (“one man band”) covering songs from most popular music genres, from current radio hits to favourites from yesteryear.
His extensive repertoire (which includes more than 500 songs), vocal range and instrumental skills allow him to create the perfect mood for the different stages of most events:
cocktail sets of mellow Jazz and Traditional Jazz Instrumentals.
Dinner sets with soft music from artists like Sting, Michael Buble, Michael Franks and Eric Clapton.
Dance and Party sets performing 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s rock and pop.
Virgil, who has been making music since his early teens, has been part of numerous popular duo’s trio’s and bands.
As a finger style and blues guitarist he took the folk scene by storm in the seventies, which lead to the opening of a guitar school, which he ran for .15 years. He still takes selected private students.
I just wanted to add a personal Thank You for making our day so very special. I hadn’t realised you were so talented.
We will definately be calling you for our next function.
Your versatility is impressive.
Virgil was great, thank you!
Virgil, thank you so much for making our engagement and wedding day so very special. Jan and I, our family and friends loved your music and you have created so many wonderful memories we will remember forever. Thank you!
Virgil is an amazing performer and kept our guests entertained all evening. He had us all on our feet and dancing by the end of the night. We would not hesitate to book him again.
The party was great, and everyone enjoyed Virgil a lot, including me. Thanks for your help!
