5 Piece Band
VERTIGO is an exciting and dynamic new band performing a carefully selected blend of rock and pop songs by both contemporary and classic artists. The band is focussed to bring a fresh approach to live music at corporate events, private functions and weddings, as well as venues across the UK and worldwide.
Formed in 2004, VERTIGO has already captured the imagination of audiences with their high standard of musicianship, entertaining performance and refreshing choice of songs.
VERTIGO is fronted by the hugely talented Richard Oliver, who’s sophisticated vocal style and charismatic stage presence always guarantees to entertain.
