Themed Events

 

Looking for ideas and inspiration? 

 

 

Here are some of the themed events where we have been involved in providing some great music:

 

 

  • 1920s - this is a fabulous era for events - Gatsby, Prohibition, Gangsters & Molls, Flapper Girls and brilliant dances like the Charleston.  Something for everyone.

 

 

  • 1930s - wonderful music from the likes of Cole Porter and George Gershwin, the songs of Bing Crosby, the glamour of Hollywood, the films of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, and a great dance craze in the form of Lindy Hop.

 

 

  • 1940s - the war years with evocative music from the likes of Glenn Miller, Bing Crosby, Louis Armstrong and early Frank Sinatra - fabulous swing music and swing dancing.

 

  • 1950s - the glamour of Hollywood, films like High Society with Grace Kelly, classic albums from Frank Sinatra and new music in the form of rock 'n' roll and a resurgence of jive.

 

 

  • 1960s - the classic Rat Pack era, James Bond and Breakfast at Tiffany's with Audrey Hepburn.

 

 

 

  • Las Vegas themed - the glamour and the music of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.

 

 

  • New Orleans themed - traditional jazz mixed with hot grooves.

 

 

  • Latin themed  - steamy latin-jazz grooves and cool bossa-nova.

 

 

 

  • Electro-swing - bringing a contemporary dancefloor feel to classic jazz and swing

 

 

  • Mixed audience - The Hipcats are very experienced at playing to mixed audiences - everything from 18th birthday parties, student parties, weddings, major corporate events to 50th wedding anniversaries.  For any event it is important to have a band that can be flexible and appeal to everyone.  We can play a mix of classic jazz and swing but we also have a more contemporary set of soul and funk tunes which get everyone on the dancefloor - get in touch to find out more.
