Claire Louise is based in Teesside and usually performs across the North of England but has performed in Scotland, Wales and Southern England so anywhere is a possibility!
Claire Louise is a singer specialising in vintage themed events and has an excellent reputation for delivering an outstanding vocal performance and having extensive knowledge of the eras that she covers. Sets can include authentic 1920s and 1930s jazz, blues and swing, modern pop songs with a vintage jazz twist which are very popular, 1940s wartime tribute or a broad mix of vintage genres from 1910s through to the 1960s.
1920s/30s Gatsby style party sets are available for those of you wanting to take your party back to the Roaring Twenties... from jazz and swing music of the era to modern pop done with a Charleston or Ragtime twist to give your guests the familiarity and upbeat sound of modern pop while feeling like they are at a prohibition era party in full swing!
For clients wanting a wartime feel to their party/event, Claire can perform up to 2*45 min sets of 1940s style music from The Andrews Sisters, Vera Lynn, and music hall and swing favourites of the era.
For events that want to cater to all tastes, Claire Louise also offers mixed music party sets for later in the evening with pop and soul from 1960s, 70s, 80s to now such as Adele and Amy Winehouse.

General jazz and swing sets spanning the eras include the above plus Etta James, Nina Simone, Peggy Lee, Dinah Washington, Natalie Cole, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Postmodern Jukebox covers of modern pop songs with a vintage twist which will leave audience members wondering why a song from yesteryear sounds so familiar.... until the chorus when they recognise it and sing along!
