Gayle Ritt & Mike Soto
Gayle Ritt & Mike Soto return to the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum on Friday, April 24th at 7:00 p.m.
A native of Flagstaff, Arizona, Ritt has been singing and performing most of her life. From her days a a singing waitress to playing for sold out audiences at the House of Blues - her "considerable ability to create subtle, song specific arrangements," (Illinois Entertainer) and constant performing have made her a household name in Chicago. Ritt's live performances are varied as her styles - from Motown to Folk and everything in between. Ritt relocated to Portland after years of touring and recording music throughout the U.S. The Chicago Sun-Times says, "Ritt's gutsy voice is an impressive instrument," and her 4 albums speak for themselves as her ability to sing and perform different styles of music shine.
Mike Soto who plays the bass, vocals, and guitar has been performing around the Pacific Northwest over the past two decades and has been the driving force behind SLA and WildSeed, two busy working bands. He has been the host of numerous open mic and jam sessions and continues to build and promote the musical community on the Westside. He has been one of McMenamins' bands for the past 15 years in addition to performing in numerous other venues.
"The promise of an ongoing love affair with her music will begin the moment you hear the first note."
Ritt sings a unique and traditional version of the National Anthem that has garnered her a standing invitation by the Chicago Cubs (9 years running). She has also performed at Dodgers Stadium, The Staples Center, US Cellular Field and the Thomas & Mack Center for the Dodgers, Lakers, White Sox and Gladiators.
