Welcome to     
     The Ritz Acoustic Club     

The home of Acoustic Music in Somerset

The Ritz Acoustic Club is all about providing a stage for anyone to come along and perform in front of a live audience.

The club runs a first come first served basis.
We recommend you arrive early to guarantee a slot.
(two songs per slot). 

We provide all the sound equipment that you'll need; ...
we will also mix the sound for you.

It should be worth mentioning at this point, that the quality and experience of the players varies dramatically and first timers are encouraged.

The club is a music club and to that end we ask people to be considerate to the players when they are on stage, however, there is a bar and it’s not a library; common sense should apply.
Please note that when an artist is performing,
we ask that you DO NOT walk across the front of the stage.

We look forward to seeing you in the very near future.

If you plan your first visit to the club and can’t get to the club early, contact us in advance and we will do everything possible to reserve you a slot on this first visit.

We run three sets, .......
  • the first starting usually at about 8:30 - 9:10 pm,
  • the second 9:20-10:10 pm
  • and the third 10:20-11:00 pm.

Look out for Our Special Guest / Showcase Nights ... which are held every third Thursday of the month.

There will only be one Open-Mic set (8:30 - 9:40pm) on showcase nights.
This will be followed by the guest act at 10:00 pm - 11:10 pm.
