Profile

Dressed in snappy suits and circular skirts, this young high-energy band leap effortlessly from authentic 50's rock 'n roll to mellow prom-style ballads. Going off like a fifties firework at private parties and corporate events around the UK, The Fifty Eights are guaranteed to have you slow dancing with your dollybird or jiving like its 1955...



" THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BRINGING OUR WEDDING PARTY TO LIFE. YOUR AUTHENTIC FIFTIES SOUND, CATCHY RHYTHMS, SNAPPY OUTFITS, AND PRISTINE HAIR DO'S WERE HITS WITH US, AND ALL OF OUR GUESTS. YOU BROUGHT A SMILE TO EVERY FACE IN THE ROOM AND HAD EVERYONE AGED EIGHT TO 80 SWINGING AROUND THE DANCE FLOOR ALL NIGHT LONG. EVEN MY GRAN WAS HAVING A BOOGIE - YOU MUST HAVE BEEN DOING SOMETHING RIGHT!" CHEERS "
