Biography

The Rockabellas are today’s answer to The Andrews Sisters. With killer heels, killer curves and killer harmonies, they’ve been called to the musical front line to lift the spirits of ladies and gentlemen all over the world with their unrivalled vintage vocals.

Whether it’s a small underground club (Cellar Bar, Covent Garden), a large corporate affair (Orange, Barclays, JD Sports), a public event (Epsom Ladies Day), a military engagement (Sandhurst HQ) or a private party (Mr & Mrs Jones from no. 5), they have been there, done it and worn the pencil skirt.

From toe-tapping classics from the wartime songbirds to floor-fillers from modern day chart toppers which they beat into submission with their retro sticks, they sing it all with the glamour and grace of the bygone years.

And whether it’s Vera or Verve, Elvis or Ella, they have just one philosophy: “It Don’t Mean A Thing If It Aint Got That Swing!”

The Rockabellas are amazingly versatile. They can perform a capella (either in situ with PA still or as a walkabout act around open air events or tables at dinner for example). They can also offer live backing, starting with 3 piece brass over the top of their bespoke backing tracks, right up to a full 14 piece big band which they affectionately call the Rockafellas!

Costumes include military, hot pink peep toes with moulin rouge mini top-hats, cherry print cocktail dresses and red, white & blue sailor girl pin up outfits. Their repertoire ranges from pure nostalgia or a mix of nostalgia and dancefloor classics from the likes of Michael Jackson, Kylie etc – which they give a complete big band makover to of course!

Whether it’s Vera or Verve, Elvis or Ella, they have just one philosophy: “It Don’t Mean A Thing If It Aint Got That Swing!”

“Sorry to have missed your full performance yesterday. I did however see the last 5 minutes and I thought it was superb, I have given a quote to the East Anglian today as they asked for my highlights and I mentioned your group. You were extremely professional and worked very hard with the crowds. Looking forward to your performance during National Armed Forces Week.”
S Fairweather, Bury St Edmunds Christmas Fayre

“I am writing to let you know how much we all enjoyed your performance at the country club last week. Despite the fact that none of our party was around at the time of the Andrews Sisters, the act is so evocative of the era it instantly recreates the atmosphere of the old Hollywood films we have all seen. The styling and costumes were spot on and the intricate close vocal harmonies were a foot tapping joy! Congratulations”
M McCarthy, Memact Ltd
