Well established in the U.K she can often be seen in other exotic destinations and has graced the stage for and with many a star such as fat Boy slim, Fun lovin Criminals, Colin Farrell, Jeremy Irons amongst others.

HIRE A SINGER

Arguably the nation’s most seductive vintage songstress, Songbird Sally graces with a variety of vintage and modern rockabilly, blues and jazz covers and originals. A real showstopper with a vocal that can be as soft as churned butter but equally powerful, you can put Sally in the corner but all eyes (and ears) will still be on her.

OTHER VINTAGE PERFORMERS

Kiki is a rollerskating hula-hooping sensation. At first, audiences will marvel at her impressive roller-skating moves and tricks, then they will be wowed by her hula-hooping abilities, sometimes twirling up to 40 hula-hoops at a time, all whilst on roller skates. Her acts are original, quirky and a wonderful blend of mind-blowing skill and humour. She has modern routines, 1920s styles and a great rockabilly act where she plays a rude roller-skating waitress. Able to perform as a skater, a hula-hooper and both combined, Kiki is an act no one will forget.

A regular compare at Betty Lou Gin Club cabaret and vintage club nights, Jack excels as a compare for events with unique entertainment.

Vaudeville has been quiet as an entertainment style for a few years now but John’s woken Brighton up to it again. With a contemporary twist, he is still true to his hero Charlie Chaplin but with his own sometimes goofy, innocently cheeky persona too. Using his immense talent as a magician, John’s new act combines this with silly stunts, barrels of humour and a golden-era charm which make both him and his act totally endearing. This is one of those acts you'll leave with knowing that you’ve seen a resurgence of vaudeville entertainment.
