Finding great vintage entertainment

Because retro and vintage weddings are so incredibly popular these days, there are now a wealth of vintage acts, bands and performers out there for soon-to-be brides and grooms to select from, no matter what era you are trying to recreate.

Planning a ‘20s or ‘30s wedding? Why not opt for a ‘20s-style dance band or a Prohibition era band guaranteed to play some jazzy tunes you can do the Charleston to? Alternatively, if you are having a more sophisticated affair, opt for more orchestral entertainment to form the perfect musical backdrop to your champagne and high tea.

Returning to the ‘40s for your big day? It won’t be hard to find some sassy songstresses who can channel the era and help you dance until you drop to such hits as “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”.

Prefer the ‘50s as the theme for your nuptials? There are so many different kinds of acts you can choose from to evoke this dynamic musical era, so it’s all down to your personal preference. From swing and jazz bands through to rockabilly, jive and early rock’n’roll, the options are numerous. Whichever genre you go for, you’re sure to have a rocking good time at your reception!
