Virgil Ellis is a versatile solo performer covering songs from most popular music genres. His repertoire spans the decades from the 1950’s to current hits.
His extensive repertoire, vocal range and instrumental skills allow him to create the perfect mood for any venue or function. From cocktail sets of mellow jazzy songs and instrumentals to dinner sets with soft music from artists like Sting, Michael Buble, Michael Franks and Eric Clapton all the way to dance and party sets performing 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s rock and pop.
Virgil has been making music since his early teens and while he is a fantastic solo artist, he has also 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.
Virgil has been based in Gauteng for the last few years, the Cape Town music scene is thrilled to have him back!
