The Silver Heels A great jazz band of marvellous players and a creamy voiced singer. Has a great repertoire of 40s swing dance and 20s Charleston numbers  for dance events.

Charleston Charlies Playing popular hits from the Roaring Twenties, an era of wonderful nonsense, quirky original music and cheerful entertainment.

 

 

 

 

The Marjorie Belles 1940s Close Harmony Singing by three gorgeous, singin' swingin' chicks. Dream yourself back to the days of landgirls and the Andrew's sisters.

 

 

 

La Mort Subite Stomping great fun, this band has hungarian zithers, hurdy gurdy, double bass and superfast drums. Great to stomp to with many a charlestonable track. Influenced by Parno Graszt, Bireli Lagrene, Rosenberg Trio, Davy Graham, Henry Mancini, Goran Bregovic, Gus Viseur, Besh o droM, Django Reinhardt, Yann Tiersen, Bango Margit. Myspace page   

DJs

DUTTY MOONSHINE - Electroswing DJs, aka Don von Drop It and FunkUnFurl, resident DJs of the vaudeville rave.  Outstanding spark of 1930s swing and Charleston tunes remixed for today's dance generation. Great to charleston to but will also appeal to people that like beats as well!
