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.

The Tootsie Rollers...


Dazzle audiences with their sizzling sound and slick vintage styling. Their music fuses Golden Era Classics with Contemporary Hits. In a Tootsie set Pharrell Williams joins Judy Garland and Duke Ellington meets Rizzle Kicks.




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.
