About this Act

The Flashes are an exciting, energetic and versatile trio carefully blend a mix of great dance-floor fillers from the 50s all the way through to modern day artists such as Daft Punk and the Killers. All three musicians sing and are multi-instrumentalists and enjoy swapping about on the night.
