The Flat Pack
The Flat Pack are a male vocal harmony group that perform songs in tribute to The Rat Pack and Swing music, with solos and duets thrown into the mix. They were formed as close friends who grew up in the theatre world which gives them the natural edge of on-stage-banter as part of their performances. In 2019 they were the first trio to get a turn from the judges on The Voice UK which took them on a journey never to be forgotten. The ideal act to either sit back and enjoy with a drink, or get up and dance to!
The Fabulous Red Diesel
Raw soul with Bush/Mitchel-esque lyrics over the grooviest arrangements of original funk, latin, soul, gypsy punk and swing. There are trumpets, a flute and even a tuba when one is required. You come away from a gig feeling like you have met friends, the vibe is so infectious. You will smile like a loon, sing along and dance like nobody's watching.
The Fabulous Red Diesel have suported James Taylor Quartet, been playlisted on Jazz FM and performed at Ronnie Scott's, the Cheltenham, Sidmouth and Rye Jazz festivals amongst many others.
Their 3rd album, Are We Still Rolling?, was mixed by Phill Brown
