Roaming Band (Classic Drifters)

The Classic Drifters are an exceptional roaming band renowned for their vibrant renditions of swing, pop, and soul classics. Their energetic performances take place amidst your event, creating an atmosphere of excitement and joy. This lively act is a perfect choice for various occasions such as drinks receptions, award ceremonies, private parties, sporting events, and more. Moreover, they are particularly well-suited for outdoor events and venues with restrictions on amplified instruments, as they can perform entirely acoustically.

Comprised of a team of skilled musicians, The Classic Drifters have an impressive track record, having entertained audiences at esteemed events like the Cheltenham Festival, Royal Ascot, and The London Jazz Festival, as well as numerous private functions. Their corporate clientele includes renowned companies such as Lindt, Ferrari, BMW, AXA, Next, the BBC, and Bentley.

With a diverse and extensive repertoire, the band covers a wide range of musical styles, from jazzy swing classics to popular hits from the 1950s, 1960s, soulful grooves, and even contemporary chart-toppers. Led by a female vocalist, the band offers flexible line-up options, ranging from a 3-piece ensemble to a 7-piece ensemble, accommodating different event requirements.

While the band is capable of performing entirely acoustically, for optimal sound quality, it is recommended that the vocalist uses a battery-powered amplifier, which the band provides at no additional cost. This suggestion is especially important when booking the 5-piece band or larger. Alternatively, The Classic Drifters can also deliver a fully-amplified set from a fixed location. Additionally, they can perform with wireless microphones and a distributed PA system, enabling them to roam throughout your venue while being amplified, ensuring that everyone in the audience can enjoy the performance.

The Classic Drifters' spirited and engaging performance creates an interactive experience that is bound to uplift and delight your guests, leaving them in high spirits.

Just wanted to send you a note to say that Rick was just such a rock star on our stand this week at Black Hat Europe.  He is just such a super chap and totally wonderful to work with.  He just rocks up and gets on with things, we had some issues with our cabling and he sorted that out and then just keeps rolling all day.  He chats away with all the ‘customers’ and is a joy to work with.  All our team at Carbon Black, just love him.
