Bring the shake, rattle n roll to your 50s themed event

Published: 10 Jun 14, 12:45pm  |  Author: DG Music

Everyone loves a touch of nostalgia which is why themed weddings and events are becoming more and more popular.

Nothing beats taking a trip down memory land and re-visiting the soundtrack to your younger years.

Our 50s and 60s rock n rolls bands for weddings and special events are in such huge demand because it is a particularly popular era for retro parties. The music was so iconic and the choice is wide – jive, rockabilly, rock n roll and boogie woogie sounds are all reminiscent of this period in time.

Rockabilly legends The Houndogs are one of our most popular bands. These Lincolnshire brothers have performed to crowds of up to 17,000 people with an unrivalled energy and enthusiasm.

The band has performed at some massive events including The Chelsea Flower Show and American Speedfest. They proved so popular with the crowds last year that they were invited back to perform at both events again this year.

They are the perfect choice to get your party swinging.

The Jitterbug Jets are a fantastic rock n roll alternative. Based in Leicestershire, they are well positioned to travel across the country to bring their iconic 50s tunes to your event. They use vintage equipment to recreate an authentic sound from the decades they love so much.

Check out this video of them performing Bill Haley's classic hit 'Rock Around The Clock'.

Our three-piece band from Leeds, Wildwind, and five-piece London act Fifty Fives will also provide a fantastic atmosphere at your themed events.

Rock n roll band CG & The Hotrods offers something a bit different with a female singer. With authentic outfits and vocals to match, audiences know they’re about to see something special when this band appears on stage.

But retro parties don’t have to be all about the rock n roll.

Ally & The Cats perform an impressive selection of jive and swing hits which can give your event a cool relaxed vibe with the sounds of Sinatra and The Blues Brothers.

Our jive performers also include The Jalapeno Hot Club a fantastic 4 or 5 piece band from London that play your favourit modern tracks but all in a retro swing and jive style. Perfect for those looking to throw a vintage twist on their event...

Another great option if you love the vocal harmonies of the 50s is the fantastically named, Rockin Robin and his Honky Tonk Hoods who not surprisingly hail from Nottingham near Sherwood Forest! They specialise in the good time rock n roll music of the era whilst giving it a youthful feel to suit young couples getting married today. Check out their promo video which features the classic song 'At The Hop' made famous by Danny and the Juniors.

Looking for something more laid back? Our piano/vocal and saxophone duo Smoky McNab is also a perfect choice if you want something to suit your theme but understated. They perform a mix of jazz, blues, boogie woogie and rock n roll music making them a versatile choice for everything from background music to dance floor fillers.

So whatever the style of your 50s themed event, whether it’s the T-birds and Pink Ladies from Grease or a cool jive affair, there is sure to be a live music act available to enhance your day.
