Into the Blue – A classic party, pop, rock and soul band, playing a range of music to suit all ages and tastes. This five-piece band of professional musicians has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the entertainment industry, performing slick, feel-good shows that delight.
Noble Jacks – A rip-roaring Alt-Folk band with roof-raising energy. The band’s upbeat folky foot stompin’ rhythms and engaging lyricism showcase fiddle, blues harmonica, and big anthem toplines. Their debut album ‘What the Hammer’ is out now.
The United Stöats of America take the essence of bluegrass, rockabilly and skiffle, and add some rock solid drumming and a gallon of cider. They transform other people’s songs – which they say are really only “rollicking hillbilly tunes ruined by being played with the wrong instruments” – into something totally unique.
The Strums play masterful semi-acoustic versions of many of your favourite songs, from Crosby Stills and Nash to Jessie J! The four band members are quality musicians playing quality music, showcasing guitar mastery and flawless harmonies honed from years of experience playing professionally within the music business.
Lingfield-based Sloe Gin has generated an enthusiastic local following, performing at pubs, festivals and folk clubs in Surrey, Sussex and Kent. Playing tunes and songs from the English and Irish traditions, their accomplished musicianship and strong vocals deliver a dynamic and lively sound.
The Swinghearts are a close-harmony swing trio, inspired by the music, look and feel of vintage girl groups from the 1940s and 50s. Performing the most popular songs from the period, whatever the occasion they’re guaranteed to ‘Bring the Swing’!
