We are Vintage Vie - a high quality vocal duo singing solo and duet numbers. We play an extensive repertoire of music from the 20’s through to the 50’s swing and rock n roll era. We are dancers as well and will teach the dance moves to have the audience engaged right from the off. We also perform with full big bands and swing bands as well and can discuss those options - we present in a range of attire from the 20’s style through to 40’s and 50’s. We have entertained at numerous events starting with Vintage Vie and then our full band afterwards. you won’t be disappointed.

Hi Kal - Really good to meet you and Laura and the rest of the band on Saturday and thank you for your kind words about the hotel and the event. What a fantastic evening, we have had many good comments back and the whole event was a great success. You guys were absolutely superb and I’d like to congratulate you on your professionalism throughout. The music was brilliant and the whole setup was first class. Would definitely be interested in discussing future events and will have to get some plans together for next year. Possibly a summer garden party in a marquee on the lawns would be something we’d be keen to look at. What might you suggest in terms of theme and music style? Probably be looking at a Saturday in June/July. Also for future reference what do you charge for the band for a New Year’s Eve performance? Would be great to get any photos or video from the event that you may have too that we could put on social media and other marketing for similar events for the future. Look forward to hearing from you and once again thank you and the rest of the band for such a fantastic night of entertainment. Kind regards Simon

This set up of Laura and Kal as Vintage Vie and the band is fabulous x they will take you right back x with their authentic sounds of the past. Your feet won’t stop tapping and your soul won’t stop moving. Their dancers and singers are amazing. The 1920s ball in Leicester was perfection x well done guys xx - Dee Evans - City Rooms Leiceste
