Carwash, six-piece tribute band to the 70s, have been bringing the house down all over the world since 1993 with the funkiest disco sounds around. But as well as appearing as Carwash, the band members can change into various costumes and appear as one of four special tribute bands: Funky Divas(a tribute to female artists from Aretha Franklin to Beyonce), 80s Phantazie (tribute to the 80s), School Daze (a collection of hits which will bring back the distant memories of the school disco), and [email protected] (a pop/rock band playing tunes from the Chilli Peppers to Coldplay). The band also perform as Sway a single “traditional” function band playing a selection of their repertoire from their various tribute acts. For an extra ‘wow’ factor the band can expand to a ten-piece by adding a horn section.
You can read biographies and listen to clips of 80s Phantasie (tribute to the 80s) and The Funky Divas (a tribute to female artists from Aretha Franklin to Beyonce) by scrolling down in the Tribute/theme section. Carwash and their associated tribute acts have played virtually every university in the British Isles and performed at corporate and private functions in America, throughout Europe and across to Israel. The band is made up of some of the UK’s top session musicians with credits ranging from Robbie Williams, Blur and Lisa Stansfield as well as performances on Top Of The Pops, The National Lottery and even Noel’s House Party.
The band usually perform up to three 40-minute sets but this can be extended by arrangement. They can also provide background music on CD before, in between breaks and after the performance has finished at no extra charge. Carwash have a professional PA system and lighting rig to highlight the band.
