Boogie Bill’s Billionaires
The Billionaires is a fun and foot-tapping party band emulating the sound and style of the great American dance bands, moving seamlessly from Jump-Jive to Ratpack via some good-time Rhythm ‘n’ Blues!
This slick 6-piece can really swing, leading you on a journey of timeless classics from the likes of Louis Prima, Peggy Lee and Sinatra.
The band performs regularly at festivals and functions, and have played at many prestigious venues across the North West – for example the Midland in Morecambe, Storrs Hall in the Lakes, and Blackpool Winter Gardens. They have also played for festivals such as Southport Jazz Festival, and Colne International Rhythm and Blues Festival.
Midland events coordinator Vicky Cruse says of The Billionaires:
“They always create a fantastic atmosphere and offer the perfect combination of energy and fun”.
This is a very versatile band with an extensive repertoire of songs and styles to get the party swinging. For example they have been called upon to play for themed events such as 1940’s vintage days and Lindy Hop 50’s functions.
The Billionaires is a band of musicians that are passionate about this music, with each member having an impressive and diverse musical track record in their own right. For example, supporting then dueting with Jools Holland at the piano (Bill), touring the UK with The Kings Of Swing (Paul, sax) Playing on fancy cruise ships (Ciaran, trumpet).
The Billionaires is also available as a trio for smaller functions and house parties.
