Gatsby style

The 1920s, often referred to as the 'Roaring Twenties', was a pivotal time in music history, marked by the fusion of early 1900s Ragtime with jazz, leading to the iconic Charleston dance craze. American music played a significant role in ushering the Jazz Age into the UK.

Recently, films like 'The Great Gatsby' and TV shows such as 'Peaky Blinders' have reignited interest in this musical era, making it increasingly popular for various events. The energetic, syncopated jazz rhythms are not only great for dancing but also encourage guests to immerse themselves in the era's glamour, adding an extra sparkle to any party.

'The Gatsby Girl' offers a unique musical experience by blending authentic vintage sounds and songs from the 1920s-30s with modern pop and R&B, all given a jazz or ragtime twist. This creates a harmonious mix of true period hits and contemporary songs in a familiar format that guests can enjoy and sing along to.

This music style is gaining traction at corporate events, birthday parties, weddings, and themed public events. For those looking to recreate the glitz of the Gatsby era with the perfect musical backdrop, Claire Louise is the ideal choice for providing entertainment.

1940s style

Music played a vital role during wartime, serving as a morale booster and a beacon of hope. This era produced a rich collection of songs, each carrying its own historical significance.

The Gatsby Girl, with her classical training in jazz and traditional pop, possesses a versatile vocal range ideal for this diverse repertoire. She can powerfully deliver big band classics and also convey deep emotions in softer tunes. Her ability to transition from evocative songs like "The White Cliffs of Dover" to lively big band hits such as "In The Mood" captivates audiences.

She has crafted an authentic 1940s tribute act, featuring a mix of British classics by artists like Vera Lynn, Gracie Fields, and George Formby, alongside iconic soldier songs and American big band and boogie-woogie hits from the likes of Glenn Miller and The Andrews Sisters.

The Gatsby Girl's wartime tribute is available for a variety of events, including public, corporate, and private parties. Her past performances have spanned various occasions, from birthday parties and weddings to significant events such as war weekends in Leyburn and Lytham as well as public commemorations of VE Day and Remembrance Day.
