1950s & rock'n'roll bands

Calling all Teddy Boys, Beatniks and Greasers – for an authentic 50s event, hire a vintage rock'n'roll band or an Elvis tribute act!

Our show-stopping 50s tribute bands play all of your blistering rock’n’roll favourites from Tutti Frutti to Hit The Road Jack. Looking sharp in braces, greased hair and winkle pickers, these bands channel the style of the decade that gave us Bill Hayley, The Shadows and The Everly Brothers.



As well as swinging rock'n'roll, we also have a selection of close-harmony vocal groups singing 40s and 50s swing and boogie-woogie classics. With their pin-up girl costumes and snappy dance routines, these girls recreate the spirit of Vera Lee and The Andrew Sisters.

We also have Elvis tribute acts for hire, paying homage to the undisputed king of rock’n’roll. From early favourites like ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ and ‘Hound Dog’ to later ballads like ‘Always on my Mind’ and ‘An American Trilogy’, our Elvis impersonators are guaranteed to steal the show. Our Elvis tributes are both sound-a-likes and look-a-likes, and are perfect for all venues – blue suede shoes optional.
