Roaming Band (Classic Drifters)

The Classic Drifters are a sensational roaming band who perform lively, feel-good swing, pop and soul classics. Mixing and mingling around your event whilst performing the very best Swing, Pop and Soul classics, this upbeat act are perfect for drinks receptions, award ceremonies, private parties, sporting events and more. The band can perform completely acoustically making them perfect for outdoor events and venues which restrict the use of amplified instruments.

This group of professional musicians have performed at Cheltenham Festival, Royal Ascot, The London Jazz Festival and countless private events; with corporate clients including Lindt, Ferrari, BMW, AXA, Next, the BBC and Bentley.

The band’s varied and diverse repertoire list features everything from jazzy swing classics to 50s and 60s hits, soul grooves, and modern-day chart hits. The band is fronted by a female vocalist and is available in a range of flexible line-ups, from a 3-piece to a 7-piece ensemble.

The band can perform completely acoustically, although for the best sound we suggest that the vocalist uses a battery-powered amplifier which the band provide free of charge (please note this is strongly recommended if you are booking the 5-piece band and above). The Classic Drifters can also perform a fully-amplified set from a fixed location. Finally, ask about the band performing with wireless microphones and a distributed PA system allowing them to roam through your venue whilst being amplified – allowing the performance to be enjoyed by everyone in the audience.

The Classic Drifters have a lively, feel-good performance which is interactive and sure to put your guests in good 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.
