About this Act

Boogie Shoes five piece, covering the famous tracks from across the decades that make people get up and dance. And they dress in the style of the music they play. So the seventies features the band wearing stack heels, flared trousers, sequinned shirts and afro's. And the Motown decade has the gents wearing smart suits and ties with the ladies in era appropriate dresses.

But there's nothing generation specific about the performance. The band makes extensive use of backing tracks to keep the price low and so you can get the sound of a full 12 piece band complete with swinging horn section, for the price of a five piece. The band are comfortable playing with fewer members too, so if you've only got space for three people it's no problem. The band can replace members with additional backing tracks so you'll get the same big sound, but on a smaller budget.

And whilst the sounds are authentic to the ear, BoogieShoes use state of the art equipment to reproduce it, including the use of an optional electronic drum kit to keep the volume low when the venue has sound restrictions in place. But obviously, if you like it loud, they can do that too

So, if you're looking for an evening of classic 70's Disco ( Abba, KC and the Sunshine Band, Heatwave, Sister Sledge, the BeeGees), 60's Motown and Soul (Diana Ross and the Supremes, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Stevie Wonder, Sam Cooke, Jackson 5, Jackie Wilson etc), or 80's club hits (Chaka Khan, Chic, Whitney Houston, Shalamar, Blondie, Human League) BoogieShoes can help. And if you've got someone who'd like to sing with the band, they'd enjoy that too.
