At Find a Performer we have an extensive range of 50s bands for you to choose from - one of the largest selections in the UK. We work together with you and our bands to make sure every detail is planned, and we ensure that we achieve a peak performance for your event.

Our 50s bands offer a vintage appeal by harking back to the likes of Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry - all played with authenticity, skill and finesse. Each of our 50s bands will come to your event with their own PA systems and lighting to offer you the best show possible for your wedding, function or corporate event.

Booking one of our 50s bands will transport your guests to the era of Cadillacs, quiffs and of course, the electric guitar. Or perhaps you are looking for a group that specialises in Motown and the iconic sounds of Ray Charles, Al Green and Diana Ross.

The 50s was a turning point for popular music in both the USA and the UK, it was known as the ‘birth of rock’n’roll with Elvis flustering the hearts of young teenagers and Chuck Berry destroying the old safety nets of music with his clever lyrics and distinctive sounds. Artists such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard and Gene Vincent were also topping the charts with raucous rock ‘n’ roll tunes.

At this time there was also other legends including Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet and Bobby Darin (you can check out our swing singers available for hire here). Johnny Cash and Hank Williams also defined the Country and Western style of music during the 50s. Johnny Cash’s music was more of a country sound with a ‘rockabilly’ influence.

With bands based all over the UK and suiting any budget, if it’s 50s bands you’re after, we’ve got you covered.

    David and I found you really helpful when we were searching for an act to play at the wedding - the duo were perfect and just what we were looking for. The day was extremely hectic, and they played during our drinks reception while we were whisked away for photos, so I regret to...
