The Boogie Woogie Gals
The Boogie Woogie Gals - as seen on national TV!
The Boogie Woogie Gals are a 1940's / 50's style close-harmony vocal group - their beautiful blended voices will be a delight to any ear.
With authentic costumes, tight choreography and sing-alongs a plenty, The Boogie Woogie Gals guarantee you'll be shoo-whopping and bee-bopping along to their retro tunes in no time!
The Boogie Woogie Gals
The gals have been singing together for years and they love all things vintage; from the hair and makeup through to the wondeful music of the era. Their songs include war-time classics, swing, traditional sing-alongs, 1950s rock n roll and modern chart songs done in the 1940s close-harmony style. Their passion for the music is infectious; you'll be joining in singing along and dancing in no time!
The Boogie Woogie Gals have recently received global press coverage due their involvement in the D-Day 70th Anniversary commemorations, singing for veterans aboard Brittany Ferries on the crossings to Normandy, a moving and memorable experience. They were featured in all the main UK papers, as well as BBC, Channel 4 and Sky news, in fact, their story went global and they were appeared on ABC news in America and Australia, as well as in newspapers across Germany, France and Canada!
The Boogie Woogie Gals perform to high quality backing tracks, or with a full backing band, and also offer an acappella set. This is great when you have a passing crowd (i.e. at a festival or exhibition) or when you need background entertainment. If you want a more intimate feel, the gals can roam the room and sing to smaller groups of people or at tables - a more personal experience.

The girls were a joy to have with us, so professional, friendly and sang beautifully. They really made my father's celebration an extra special occasion. Everyone was full of praise for them. Thank you girls!
The girls were absolutely fantastic! We hired them for our organisation's 75th anniversary event lunch party and they really made the day, interacting and engaging with tenants, staff and shareholders. The singing was excellent as was the choice of songs - spot on. Thank you so much!
The Boogie Woogie Gals were fantastic. Very respectful, polite and friendly. Nothing they wouldn’t try to accommodate. Flexible and quick to change timings as needed. Fabulous singing. Entertainment was excellent standard. They’re lovely girls and a credit to your reputation. Would thoroughly recommend.
The girls were the most popular party of the evening and kept everyone going until the early hours of the morning, enjoying the great party atmosphere that they created. They won the hearts of all the gentlemen in the room and were very patient and flexible when our timings didn't go to schedule. I would highly, highly recommend them!
Really excellent and very professional. The crowd loved them.
The girls were absolutely fantastic. They turned up on time and were really flexible with our timings as things weren't going exactly to plan! Everyone enjoyed the performance. They got us all up dancing and singing along. They really made the whole night. Thanks so much!
Wow, what a great evening!! The girls were fantastic and we were delighted with their performance. All aspects of the booking went smoothly and I will be very surprised if there are no future bookings for them from this event.
The icing on the cake was the Boogie Woogie Girls - they were incredible. Not just singers but entertainers - they engaged with everyone at the dinner - dancing and encouraging us to join in with the singing. They were fab - extremely professional and lovely to deal with. If you ever need vintage entertainers for any other client I would highly recommend them.
The Boogie Woogie Gals were amazing and thoroughly enjoyed by all the guests at our recent event. We will definitely be booking them again!
They were excellent and interacted so well with everyone. The are genuinely decent, kind ladies.. I can recommend them to anyone. Well worth the money.
The Star act of our village fete celebrating 100 years of the RAF. They gave an exceptionally polished performance that exceeded our expectations. Our village highly recommend them.
Excellent. Organised, professional, reliable and a great stage show. They had the 800 people there eating out of their hands.
JUST AMAZING!! We booked the Boogie Woogie Gals for our drinks reception at our wedding and Elkie and the Gals really started our celebrations in exactly the right way, and all of our guests commented on how great they were. If you are looking for vintage singers, do not hesitate to book the Boogie Woogie Gals, you will not be disappointed.
5 out of 5 at Borough Green.
The girls were extremely professional to work with, listening to how we were running the event and suggesting a format to suit. They were very engaging with the audience and completely complimented our event. I would not hesitate to recommend or book again.
The Boogie Woogie Gals were a fab addition to our event, performing a great set list. They are such lovely ladies to work with and we would love to have them back again.
Wow!! The girls were amazing! Couldn't recommend them enough! We only booked the girls 3 weeks before our wedding and they did everything they could to make our day special! You will not be disappointed if you booked these gals!
Thank you girls for doing a great job at the lunch on Thursday, the residents really enjoyed your performance and I will be using your act again for future events.
The girls are so friendly, very professional and engaging. They were a real treat to listen to with excellent vocal talents. The encore for more just shows how well they went down with the 200 strong audience ranging from age 4 to 86!! The audience participation made them stand out from other harmony groups. We will definitely recommend them and will for sure employ the gals again for my parents 40th anniversary next year!!
The Boogie Woogie Gals were incredible! The girls played to over 350 people at our annual staff conference and we received some glowing feedback - some of it via Twitter! They entertained and brightened up our day no end. I'd certainly book them again, or recommend them to others, as I'm sure would a number of my colleagues.
I just wanted I say a huge thank you to you and the girls for Saturday night. You were fantastic and really did make the party! Everyone has been talking about you and said how good you were and you are all so lovely, it was an absolute pleasure to have you there!
