We're a five piece band with male and female singers and trumpet playing a wide variety of party music from the 60s to present day. A top choice for any event and we can tailor our set lists to your requirements.
Whether you want to Listen To The Music of The Doobie Brothers, need a bit of Uptown Funk from Bruno or need Pharrell Williams to make you Happy we've got it all covered.

With many years of individual experience behind us, Jim and Richard started Roughcut Ruby in 2011. Steve, Lisa and Lauren have tagged in along the way keeping us on our toes and up to date.
We enjoy playing at functions of all sizes and, as well as being regulars on the pub scene, we have provided entertainment at private parties, wedding receptions and festivals.
