12 years of experience together means these guys are slick performers and love nothing better than making an event to remember. Whether it’s for your Wedding Anniversary Birthday or Corporate event all ages are professionally entertained!
From the opening lines of “Shake Rattle and Roll”to the fond farewell of Rock around the Clock” the floor will be filled with young and old teaching and learning jiving. No room on the dance floor don’t worry sit with Grandma and she’ll teach you the hand jive. Totally Haleys Comets are not just for Weddings try any celebration or event as nothing fazes these guys! Previous Clients Venues and what they have done before?
Individually Martyn Savage (Double Bass) is accredited as being one of the top “Double Bass” players in the country – once you’ve seen his amazing skills and party tricks I’m sure you will agree! He has supported and backed American legends such as Little Richard Stray Cats Johnny Powers Levi Dexter to name a few.
The guys have spent a lot of time together and have been too many memories to mention so we will briefly summarise.
Internationally:- Numerous tours of Australia to include riding the lead car in the opening show at Coolangata Euro Disney Music Festivals in Spain Germany Switzerland & Austria Colourline Cruise ships Norway Finland Sweden & Germany.
UK based:-Americana Music Festival Summer Seasons at Butlins Haven’s & Warners Holiday Camps Savoy Hotel Blackpool. Their main area of work is within the Rock n Roll network of events and festivals around the country. What sort of music do they play?
As a Bill Haley tribute band they play purely Bill Haley but do include some Joe Turner & Jodimars numbers which fit in-line with their Bill Haley jive band image.
Time permitting if your special Bill Haley song(s) is not on the set list please get in touch! What will the band look like?
As you would expect the band will wear matching coloured tartan tuxedos white dress shirts dickey bow tie smart black trousers & black patent shoes to give a truly authentic Bill Haley experience. Space needed?
They are a 4 piece band and need minimum 5 x 4 meters stage space – although if there’s a large dance floor this can be a very visual performance so don’t be surprised if they come down to join the party. Your Event?
The musicians are all top performers in their field while the babies of the group Alan and Martyn have at least 30 years experience each under their belts. Rest assured you will have booked a truly manicured performance from seasoned professionals. Any questions on the day just ask; its your day. Their instruments?
Highly valued and looked after and respected as much as family members. They have their own PA and lighting system to complete the package. Their Show?
Can be formatted in two ways:- 2 x 45’s or 1 hour plus encores! When the band is not playing?
After the equipment is set up and sound checked and before the actual stage performance they are quite happy to sit in the background. They would though appreciate light refreshments. After the show priority is given to clearing away as quickly as possible to make the dance floor or stage space available and then depart.
