Riley K  


I am a singer-songwriter based in southern England. Since the beginning of my career only a couple of years ago I’ve been lucky enough to perform in major slots at festivals such as Carfest South, The Vintage Nostalgia Festival, Hampshire’s Oktoberfest, and many more raising over £10,000 and counting for multiple charities along the way! I have also had the pleasure of releasing my first EP “12 am” live on BBC Radio Berkshire. The EP contains 5 of my best original songs showing my complete diversity and abilities in music. Music is my passion, so when choosing my repertoire and writing my own music, it has to be perfect! I mainly find myself following the styles of funk, Blues, Soul and many more, creating a new and exciting sound of my own aspiring to musicians such as John Mayer, Stevie Wonder, Ed Sheeran and many more. Riley K, the artist guaranteed to get you singing! With a whole new look and fresh unheard material, this is a performance you must not miss!





The Harlem Rhythm Cats! Fine Purveyors of Boogie Woogie and Blues – we are a 5-Piece Boogie Woogie and Blues band.


As well as playing some of the more familiar numbers from this genre, our repertoire focuses away from the more commercial side to the slightly less well known, quirkier side of Boogie Woogie and Blues. The Harlem Rhythm Cats guarantee to have you hip-shakin’ & toe-tapping’ with our infectious groove of Boogie and Blues spanning from the early days of the genre right up to the present day.  


The Bandits are a five-piece rock-n'-roll band who, with their own four-part harmonies and musical (and literal) twists, bring to life vintage classics and retro rarities.


Our rep includes doo-wop, blues, skiffle and that good ol'-fashioned rock n' roll - all rearranged with The Bandits' "irresistably upbeat sound". From Elvis to Etta, Big Bopper to Little Richard, and pretty much anything with "Twist" in the title, our personalised sets guarantee that you'll be rockin' around the clock.


Performing all of the top toe-tapping tunes from the fantastic Fifties, The Bandits guarantee to get you and your guests jumpin' and jivin' all night long!

“Rip Roaring Success”


Good day to you!

May I present The Rip Roaring Success - a brand new, old timeswing trio come to set the prairie on fire at VNF 2018 with some jumpin' western swing music.


It's a danger but you might just have a little bit too much fun!!

“Miss Annie & The Midnight Shift”


This six piece band is fronted by the dynamic vocals of Miss Annie and backed by five high energy, stonkin'  pro musicians collectively known as The Midnight Shift.


The combination of Miss Annie's belting voice, the wailing horns and the thumping rhythm section gives this band an authentic sound of explosive 1950s Rhythm & Blues!!!

miss annie midnight shift jaywalkers



These three outstanding musicians have developed a tight bond, demonstrated through their well-crafted, tasteful arrangements and ability to bounce ideas around the stage. The combination of powerhouse bass, flame-fingered mandolin, blistering fiddle and three-part harmony pack a punch as fiery as Jay’s lead vocals and make a fuller sound than expected from an acoustic trio.



Raisin' a holler with country flavoured rock n roll music for your dancin' pleasure.

Ben & Tim


Brought together by a love of music and a passion for guitars and harmonies, Ben and Tim are a pair of musicians who put a unique spin on the acoustic duo. Formed over ten years ago, we play covers from the sixties to present day with an energy and passion you don't see everyday. Our dynamic performances and fun-loving delivery are always a hit!  We love nothing more than to perform to people and share our love for great music!

PM Warson introduced himself with a limited-press, vinyl-only release last summer. ‘You Gotta Tell Me’ quickly gained the attention of Soul and R&B DJs. He made his live debut at the acclaimed Sofar Sessions, before hosting his own nights at Old Street Records. ‘You Gotta Me’ is set for reissue on 10” vinyl in February, alongside 2 new tracks recorded during all-analogue sessions with the band in London.
