About Vodka Martinis
Comprising some of the finest musicians in the UK The Vodka Martinis whisk you back in time which spanned the world’s first transatlantic jet service right through to Mary Quant’s revolutionary mini-skirt. Starting with some Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald swing and moving seamlessly through Latin dance, kitsch lounge and rock 'n' roll, this band can go onto to finish the night with some of the funkiest tunes on the planet! Double fronted by a fantastic female singer and male lead vocalist/guitarist, and backed by drums, bass and piano the band can expand to a six or seven-piece by adding saxophone and trumpet. The band can also provide an excellent instrumental trio of vibes, double bass and guitar or any other small combination from solo piano upwards for the earlier part of a reception.
Individually band members have performed at many major film premieres, celebrity parties and charity events as well as weddings, corporate launches and festivals for clients including The Royal Family, The Jordanian Royal Family, The King Of Thailand, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Tina Turner, Van Morrison, Sir Paul McCartney, Dave Stewart, Kylie Minogue, ABC, Vanessa Mae, Morcheeba, Jocelyn Brown, Bryan Adams, Claire Martin and The Tarantinos. Between them they have also appeared with Shirley Bassey, Michael Ball, Nelson Riddle Orchestra, Michael Crawford, Human League, Alison Moyet, West Life, Charlotte Church, Pet Shop Boys, Katherine Jenkins, Vince Hill, National Youth Orchestra and The Rat Pack at venues including Wembley Arena, The London Palladium, Ronnie Scotts and Brixton Academy.
The band normally plays for around two-and-a-half hours divided into two or three sets, and can provide background through their PA system during their breaks.
