In springtime 1944, 3 New York City broads moved to London, England as part of the war effort and have been making waves ever since. With their captivating close-harmony singing, charming choreography and comedic banter there is no stopping these gals. They have performed on BBC radio, at Ronnie Scott’s, aboard HMS Belfast, Tall Ships Regatta, Ascot Racecourse, Duxford Aerodrome, The Victoria & Albert Museum as well as main stage at Twinwood Festival. They have been featured in the London Evening Standard following successful Christmas performances at London’s Waterloo Station. In their debut year they put on their own 5 night show which helped cement them as one of the most authentic 1940’s trios on the circuit...

Five out of five
Femmes of the Forties were booked as the act for our 40th Wedding Anniversary Party - A Forties themed evening. They were brilliant... just brilliant! I can't sing their praises highly enough.
Feedback for the band on the night was very good from our clients and also our staff! Ahead of the event, the band were very professional and were easy to get hold of on email and more than happy to fully understand the event and requirements beforehand in order to tailor their performance - which was great! I didn't attend the event myself but the feedback I received was that overall the band were fun with their interaction with the audience, and the music was good, ir sounds like they really were a hit with our guests!
We booked Femmes of the Fourties to perform at our annual 1940s Weekend as an exciting new addition to the event and the girls certainly made an impression. Their glamorous style, gorgeous harmonies and charismatic personalities wowed visitors and quickly made them one of the highlights of the weekend. We would not hesitate to book them again in the future.

The girls were brilliant and therefore so was the evening. Thank you especially to Sam who found them at such short notice.
The girls are professional, personable and great performers. Our event wouldn't have been the same without them. They put smiles on the faces of passersby and people who came especially for the event, a fabulous day had by all. I will definitely look to book the band at other events in the future.
