Think big bands, vintage Hollywood, close vocal harmony, glitzy costumes and victory rolls… the perfect recipe for a vintage Christmas theme. We take a look at our picks for throwing a festive spin on this classic era.
Set the Scene with a Vintage Christmas Meet and Greet
First opinions count! So make sure your guests are wowed from the moment they set foot into your 1940s party with meet and greet entertainment that really sets the scene. These stunning Christmas Bells are totally unique, full of vintage yuletide cheer and have a certain 1940s je ne sais que to their coiffed hair and bell skirts.
You could even add a vocal harmony trio or Andrews Sisters tribute to serenade guests as they arrive.
Schmooze in Style with Background Christmas Jazz
Next up, you’ll want your guests to glide effortlessly into a warm and inviting ambience. What better way to do this than elegant Christmas jazz? Sashaying behind her old-school mic in a beaded gown, dark red lipstick and waved hair, her vintage Hollywood starlet sets the perfect atmosphere for a night of old school glamour.
The band’s varied repertoire spans jazz, swing, soul, pop, and new music arranged in a 1940s jazz style, perfect to warm up your crowd as they drink, eat and mingle.
