THE FABULOUS LOUNGE SWINGERS
“A retrofabulous style teamed with a knack for curveball covers, The Fabulous Lounge Swingers are guaranteed to raise your knees and your spirits in equal measure!” Bestival.net
“How do you mix Britney Spears Toxic into Minnie the Moocher? I would have said don’t bother trying, but these guys did – and it sounds epic!” LondonGigGuide.co.uk
“The Fabulous Lounge Swingers are a delicious blend of big band nostalgia and urban wit, somehow managing to channel everything from Glenn Miller to Chas ‘n’ Dave into wonderfully light-hearted irresistibly fun party tunes.” South London Press
Star of last year’s virtual Festival with her after-party set, Sanchia is an experienced soul & popular music singer. Sanchia always gets the party started (And finished!)
Back for their 3rd performance at the Festival..
Davey Brady (drums), Tom Wordsworth (guitar & vocals), Nic Corden (ukelele & vocals) and Gary Fisher (bass) came together to form The London Bonnevilles as the house band for an award winning production of the West End hit show ‘One Man Two Guvnors’.
In light of the very favourable comments that they received the band decided to stay together to bring their own modern take on Skiffle, playing both old favourites by the likes of Lonnie Donnegan and original songs including their singles ‘New Orleans is Calling’ and ‘The Caravan Song’ to a wider audience
