The Bluejays - 1950s Rock 'n' Roll Band for Themed Corporate Events and Parties

The Bluejays (plus vintage dancers) performing at the NEC Birmingham for the Next clothing brand’s annual bash.

We’re obviously incredibly biased but, when if comes to corporate events and parties, we believe that a 1950s Rock ‘n’ Roll theme is the one that you want!

We’ve played some fantastic events over the past few years for KPMG, Barclays, Telefónica, Next, the Natural History Museum, not to mention countless local businesses.

There are so many reasons to choose the Fifties as the theme for your event.

Firstly (and most importantly of course), the music. Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Everly Brothers, Connie Francis, Little Richard… the list goes on!

The Bluejays are the UK’s No.1 vintage Rock ‘n’ Roll band.

We play all of the biggest hits from the era - Great Balls of Fire, Jailhouse Rock, Blue Suede Shoes, Tutti Frutti, You Never Can Tell and Misirlou as heard in Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, plus Do You Love Me and Love Is Strange that all your guests will know from the Dirty Dancing soundtrack.

And not forgetting the greatest guitar song of them all - Chuck Berry’s Johnny B. Goode.

Which leads us neatly off on a tangent:

Fun fact: There’s not a human being alive that hasn’t seen Back To The Future.

OK, there’s one but he’s a 110-year old Tibetan monk who lives at the foot the Himalayas - the chances of him turning up at your office Christmas do are virtually nil.

We can put you in touch with several production companies that will turn your space into a glittering Enchantment Under The Sea dancehall, we can even help you source that iconic Delorean car

The Bluejays will then perform an electrifying set of 1950s Rock ‘n’ Roll that will have the dance floor rocking with people of all ages.

In the words of Marty McFly… “Your kids are gonna love it!”

Secondly! (We’re back on track) another great reason to have a 50s-themed party… The food!

Burgers, Hot Dogs, Milkshakes, Fries, Onion Rings, Beers.

Last week we played an event for the clothing brand Next at the NEC in Birmingham. The whole room was set up in the style of a 1950s Diner and the food on offer was all mouthwatering restaurant-quality versions of all of the above - including fantastic Beyond Meat burgers for the vegetarians/vegans.

Thirdly, the fashion.

Fun Fact: There’s not a Tibetan monk alive who doesn’t love Polka dots, leather jackets, Wayfarers, quiffs and curls.

Here at The Bluejays we’ve spent ages sourcing either original or new original vintage clothing. Most of our shirts are cut from genuine 1950s material and shipped in from the USA.

Lastly but not leastly, be prepared to throw aside all of the above - let your hair down, kick off your Blue Suede shoes and barf your hot dog all over the dance floor as The Bluejays will have you singing, dancing and partying all night!

The band can be booked as a classic 4-piece line-up with Lead Vocals, Lead Guitar, Drums and Bass up to our 8-piece band complete with Female Vocalist, Keyboards and Two Female Sax Players. Whatever the size of your event, we have a line-up for you!
