This is a party filled with music, dancing, interaction and shameless nostalgia as guests are transformed back to the rock’n’roll era of the 1950’s.
As guests arrive, they will be immediately in the mood as an acoustic band set the scene with well-known singalong songs from the 1950’s.
Alternatively, a Jerry Lee Lewis style pianist will be playing Great Balls Of Fire and other favourites on the piano.
The first surprise will be when a 1950’s style cadillac draws up in front of the terrace … and out comes none other than Elvis himself.
He will make his way to the event, interacting with the guests and pausing for selfies and autographs. Later he will perform a 15 minute show between courses.
Our Elvis has won several awards and was a finalist at the recent International Elvis Tribute Festival in the UK.
The room will be completely decked out in the style of the 1950’s, with a number of props and accessories highlighting the theme.
The room would have references to an American diner, with various accessories highlighting the theme:
50’s style cars
Posters & accessories
Life-size cut-out models
While guests are eating, DJ would play jukebox style hits. Guests would be able to make requests using an ipad on-site or their phones? DJ would play their requests with dedications if appropriate. A large video screen will be showing silent footage of events, films and iconic images from the 1950’s, including Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, James Dean, Alfred Hitchcock, Winston Churchill, The Queens coronation and Roger Bannisters 4 minute mile.
4 dancers (2 couples) would perform a tight choreographed 5 minute visual rock’n’roll show based on a fast-moving medley (Jive Bunny style). The mix and the choreography would be put together especially for the occasion.
Then the dancers will interact with the guests, showing them the essential moves to dance rock’n’roll as a couple.
Finally, all guests are then invited onto the dancefloor to show off their new talents to a selection of 50s rock & roll classics. If the MC taps you on the shoulder then you are out until one couple is left we have found our Rock'n'Roll Champions
