21:00 – 22:20: Speakeasy
A throwback to the hedonistic age of Prohibition, underground gin clubs and flappers of the 1920s and 30s, Speakeasy started off as a straight-up, traditional 9-piece swing band – but in developing their act for London’s prestigious The Arts Club, they quickly evolved into an ‘electro-swing’ band, skillfully weaving in elements of electronica and dance music to give vintage songs a fresh, modern makeover – and modern day songs the vintage treatment. With big horns and a varied setlist that ranges from old swing classics like Jump, Jive & Wail and Minnie the Moocher to retro-inspired modern hits like We No Speak Americano, Speakeasy are a nod to the pass with a thoroughly 21st century twist
