Ragtime Rewind Swing Band
Established in 2016, Ragtime Rewind Vintage Swing Band perform true 1940s swing music, as well as upbeat 1950s and modern songs with a vintage twist for those events that are not bespoke 1940s.
Performing both daytime and evening entertainment, along with specific set lists to fill the dance floor at swing dance events, they have performed all over the country and are repeatedly asked back by corporate event organisers to perform again year on year at large events. Private bookings can be taken for vintage or 1940s weddings or birthdays, or any vintage event wanting toe-tapping 1940s or 1950s entertainment.
Previous large events (and those booked for 2020 which had to be cancelled due to Covid-19) include headlining at Woodhall Spa 1940s Festival (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020); Beamish Living Museum Dig For Victory (2018, 2019, 2020); Barnard Castle 1940s Festival (2018, 2019, 2020); Armed Forces Day Bents Park (2018, 2019, 2020); P&O Vintage Cruise (2017). Please see 'What People Say' or their Facebook page for reviews.
Now back performing as Covid-19 restrictions have lifted, they have been part of the first Durham Fringe at The Assembly Rooms Theatre in July 2021, and have just left Sutton-on-Sea swinging performing for the second year at their Vintage-by-the-Sea festival in August 2021!
