lively vintage swing bands available for hire.
For over ten years Goosebumps vintage swing band have been swinging ourselves silly within the entertainment industry.
We regularly perform at weddings, parties and corporate events and are available to hire for your special event.
Did You Know?
We have our very own video showreel for you to watch. It's a complete live performance, shot in front of an audience and is the closest that you can get to seeing what we do without actually being in the room. No overdubs or studio trickery here, just pure 100% freshly-squeezed Goosebumps.
This video shows you exactly what our lively on-stage performance looks and sounds like when we play at your wedding or party. Set your peepers onto our videos page:
With over 100 performances every year, we have previously been hired to perform at "An Evening with Arnold Schwarzenegger", on Mahé Island in The Seychelles, at Kelly Brook's birthday party in London, at The Royal Albert Hall and for RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus to name but a few. We certainly love to spread our swingy stuff around the globe.
"Thank you so much for the amazing performance that you put on at our wedding. The evening was truly brilliant! The music and the energy that you put into getting the party started was fantastic. We have received so many wonderful comments about you - I would thoroughly recommend Goosebumps as a band. At every stage of the planning and prep you were accommodating and helpful with all of my many enquires! Thank you so very very much, all our best wishes,"
Have Party? Will Travel
We are based in Kent, United Kingdom but we are more than happy to travel further to perform at your event and so if you want to hire us but are worried that we might not want to go too far, fear not - we are happy to travel to London or anywhere else in the UK....even internationally.
When hiring us, you will be receiving a very professional band consisting of seasoned musicians who celebrate the music from the vintage swing era.
Our many years of performing live together has culminated in a band that perform tight and highly-polished sets and as a result will always ensure that everyone in the room will be up and enjoying themselves on the dance floor.

Don’t Turn The Volume Up To 11
There is always the fear that by inviting a live band to play for you, particularly one that includes a drummer, that they are going to be far too loud to be enjoyable.
It’s an understandable concern, especially when you know that they are going to be bringing in all sorts of amplifiers and speaker equipment to the performance area, wiring it all up and then being ultimately responsible for setting their own volume level during their performance.
It sounds like a receipe for disaster and evokes a scary image of you and your guests being blasted to the back of the room by an invisible wave of volume when they start their first song.
Noise Limiter At The Venue
Almost all of the venues that we perform at have a noise limiter fitted somewhere in the room. They are traditionally the evil nemesis for a band; instantly cutting off the power supply to the stage as soon as the volume level goes over a certain limit, thereby plunging the band mid-song into an embarrassingly awkward silence (and normally darkness too if the stage lights are coming off of the same mains supply).
Comfortable Volume Level
Goosebumps To The Rescue!
We know where our volume knobs are and know how to use them!
Most of the time we can comfortably forget that there is even a limiter in the room because we remain under the threshold anyway but even if we find that we are close to the brink with a particularly strict limiter, our skill and experience at playing a little quieter ensures that we won’t be suddenly cut-off at your wedding or party.
With Goosebumps, we’ll always make sure to keep the music going all night, without any unnecessary interruptions!
