About


Winner - Best Musical Performer at the National Vintage Awards

The Forties Four specialise in the 1940s with songs guaranteed to bring back memories and take you on a trip to the past. For those of you not old enough to remember, you are guaranteed to enjoy the timeless songs of this nostalgic era and relish in the close vocal harmonies and great humour of the Forties Four - who will leave you wanting more!

The Forties Four are available for any type of function and 1940s nostalgia performances along with wartime or similarly themed events. They can be used as a walk around act with no need for instruments or backing tracks. If you would prefer a stage show, then they can provide classic wartime songs sung in different styles which includes a mix of "A Cappella" in the barbershop style and 1930s/40s standards with backing tracks. They can be dressed in civilian clothing or in full WWII Army and RAF uniforms. This quartet provide audiences with an authentic experience of the music of the period.  

One thing is guaranteed, whatever they sing, they always enjoy it; and that means you'll enjoy it too. From ballads to comedy numbers, from patriotic to authentic. The Forties Four will have a song for everyone. They perform regularly at Air Shows, Motor Racing Events, Private Parties, Weddings, Steam Rallies, County Shows, 1940s & Wartime weekends, Museums, Corporate and public events and promotions.

Amazing night for Patrick's birthday - celebrated in some style with The Forties Four! You were totally faultless and brilliant. I will never forget Patrick's face of pure delight, and the laughter around the table.

    FAQs

    Are you able to learn requests and at what extra charge?
    We can re-work a song to incorporate slightly different words or to incorporate someones name, a company name or a product and this starts from £10 dependent on rehearsal times required. We may be able to learn a specific song if the arrangement is available. 8 weeks notice is required as we need time to purchase the song (Usually from USA) and then to learn it. Alternatively, we can get a song arranged in the barbershop style and learn it. For costs, please speak to your Warble agent.

    Are you available for photographs after the show?
    Of course! the Forties Four will be more than happy to oblige.

    Is a PA Included?
    We can provide all their own PA equipment for most size events. Perfect for Walkabout, Air Shows, Motor Racing Events, Private Parties, Weddings, Steam Rallies, County Shows, 1940s & Wartime weekends, Museums, Corporate and public events and promotions.

    Can you perform as a duo?
