About The Polka Dots

Vintage-themed band
High Wycombe
Public liability insurance of £5 million
Take three sassy voices, arrange a collection of classic and modern swing songs, add sharp dance routines and you have The Polka Dots!

Formed in 2008, the girls have been lucky enough to perform their high energy, interactive vintage show to hundreds of events both across the UK and abroad; from Carribbean cruise ship to Paris theatre, Hampton Court Palace to Royal Ascot, Twinwood to Goodwood, and we'd love to be part of your special event! Together, the three girls bring you a modern twist on the classic vintage close harmony trio: With songs from the roaring 20’s, to the wartime 40’s, plus some cheeky modern arrangements included for good measure; be it together with professional and live recorded backing tracks or supported by the 6-piece Dashes band; with a solid, smooth sound, extensive range of songs, high energy dance routines and on-stage charisma, The Polka Dots are here to get your guests ‘In the Mood’ to celebrate. Whether you’re looking for a group of foxy flappers, hard-grafting Land Girls or gorgeous glamour pusses, The Polka Dots will explode onto your stage and give your event the WOW factor! Optional Male Crooner The Andrews Sisters had Bing, and The Polka Dots are lucky enough to offer the exceptional talent of Adam Christopher-Rhys as an addition to the line-up! Together with the girls, Adam brings the smooth vocals of legends such as Bing Crosby, Dean Martin and Perry Como to the party, not to mention some fancy footwork to add an extra dimension to the show! Dotty Duo With all the same panache and personality, we’ve created a special vintage set list for the two of us to perform; from ‘Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy’ to ‘It Don’t Mean a Thing’, The Dotty Duo are available for smaller budgets or events, to add that same WOW factor and give your guests a night to remember! Vintage Vixen Whether you are looking for us to provide a vintage ambience for welcome drinks, afternoon tea, private or public celebrations, we are delighted to also offer ourselves as a vintage vixen soloist. We will work with you to create your perfect set, creating that perfect mood for your guests to enjoy.

The Polka Dots provided a duo performance for our corporate networking event on 1 August 2019 at Mattioli Woods Leicester office. Their performance fitted our theme of ‘British Summertime’ perfectly and I was delighted with the way Ella and Jo worked to our brief. For us it was important to have the ‘performance’ but also have the sound at a level that fitted a networking atmosphere – so people could still talk. The Polka Dots understood what we were trying to achieve and were flexible in their approach to build the performance either side of our speaker slot. I found them professional, enthusiastic and the singing was brilliant.

Hired the 'Polka Dots' for the Beacon Hill remembrance Sunday celebrations, their show was sensitive to the occasion and performed very well indeed. The feedback from the audience was very positive and they are the type of act that we would be delighted to have again.

Words cannot express the professionalism of the polka dots. A real showstopper at my recent wedding in London . Adapted their singing repertoire to all aspects of the day into the evening . Fantastic outfits to add to the razzmatazz! Thank you ladies you will be hearing from me again for next event. Xx. Marion
