About The Boogie Bumpers

"The" swing/jive/blues dance band to book for your event! Get your dancing shoes on, we’re coming for ya!
Swing & Jive band
Bournemouth
Public liability insurance of £10 million

The Boogie Bumpers are an exciting seven piece vintage themed swing/jive/blues dance band based in the South of England, playing the music of the 1930s, 40s and 50s. We bring the jump blues flavour of Louis Prima and Louis Jordan as well as the swing of Sinatra. Fun, energetic, professional, experienced …. Isn’t that what we all want from a band at your carefully organised event? The Boogie Bumpers will fit the bill perfectly, please get in touch with us to discuss your individual requirements. We are a dance band, and who doesn’t like dancing? Whether you are an experienced professional or completely new to dancing, we rehearse regularly and tempos are perfected to make it easy and enjoyable for you. Dancing is a great way to socialise, express yourself and have fun. Bored of listening to a band playing obscure tunes nobody wants to dance to? That isn’t us! We play well known dance, swing, blues and jive tunes that will have you dancing all night long! Our experienced musical director, with years of experience in this genre and era, works hard with the rest of the band to have you dancing and singing along all night! It’s all about the style right? We take great pride in how we look! Why go to all the effort of hosting a vintage themed event if the band don’t look period correct? We have a huge wardrobe of period correct attire, and will bring style to the stage! Your event is important! The Boogie Bumpers is professionally run in all senses. From the moment you contact us to the final encore of the evening, we will at all times be professional and courteous. We plan ahead and schedule well; who needs the stress of a band running late? We have top quality equipment, all PAT tested of course, are fully insured, and will liase with you carefully so the only thing you need to worry about is having a good time! We look forward to seeing you soon.
