About Cranberry Flick

Swing & Jive band
Nottingham
Public liability insurance of £5 million
Cranberry Flick are a 7 piece swing, jive, rhythm &blues band performing music in their distinctive vintage style.

Cranberry Flick, a Nottingham based, seven piece Swing, Jive and Rhythm & Blues band, playing music from the 1920's and across the decades. Their usual set list would include music by a vast range of artists and composers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Connie Francis, Peggy Lee, Ray Charles, Benny Goodman, Luis Jordan, Jools Holland, T -Bone Walker, The Beatles, Paloma Faith, Chuck Berry, Caro Emerald, and many, many others. Not only playing great music to listen and dance to, Cranberry Flick also provide a visual show, incorporating vintage style music stands and props, vintage costume changes and brass musicians stepping up to the front for solos. They pride themselves in providing a unique and classic experience, being entertaining and making guests feel welcome and included. The band comprises of seven highly experienced musicians who between them, have worked in pretty much every area of the music business from musical theatre to cabaret, big bands to brass bands, folk music to heavy metal. It is this collective and diverse experience that comes together to produce the 'Cranberry Flick Cocktail'. The make-up of the band affords them a huge flexibility, switching between mellow ballads and waltzes, perfect for that first dance, to trad jazz numbers, where a brass section explodes into the spotlight and moving on to heavier rock 'n' roll and rhythm & blues sounds with breath-taking guitar solos.. never a dull moment! Whilst particularly suitable for that special private party, wedding, or corporate function, the band is also more than at home playing to larger crowds at music or beer festivals, garden parties, village fetes and pretty much any other similar, outdoor function. As well as more intimate venues such as music clubs and wine bars. They are fully self-contained and just require sufficient, appropriately lit space for seven musicians and gear and mains power. Whether its music to dance to or to sit back and enjoy, Cranberry Flick's vintage show creates an atmosphere with high energy Swing and Boogie alongside romantic ballads, setting the scene to bring your guests onto the dance floor and is certain to make sure they leave wanting more.

We had the pleasure to have Cranberry Flick at our autumn 2016 events. They were a joy to listen to and we had some lovely comments from our customers about the band. They are professional and well organised which was very refreshing! We would highly recommend Cranberry Flick for any events - wedding, parties etc and we’re positive you will love them as much as we did!
