They have taken their jazz roots and embedded them in modern pop songs giving them influences of gypsy jazz, northern soul, motown, and disco as well as covering some classic motown and soul songs in their repertoire.

The quartet consists of female vocals/piano, guitar, bass and drums. As The 45s are a retro themed band, they wear outfits to match, with the men in tweed suits and singer Helen in 1960's style dresses complete with a beehive! A cool and quirky band with a retro twist.
