Phew, what a scorcher: hot acts for sizzling summer events

Now, it’s odds-on that when you read this blog the weather will be unseasonably overcast and probably raining too – it is summer after all!

However, the Met Office Extended-range forecast for July suggests we’ll have “some very warm or even hot spells”, which means you don’t need to put away the flowery shorts just yet!

Here are some sizzlingly hot entertainers from Matters Musical who love to entertain in the summer sun for any event, from outdoor festivals to weddings, summer fetes to company fun days.

Kaiso – colourful Caribbean showband

Kaiso are a Caribbean showband that’ll get everyone up and dancing with a fruity cocktail of Soca, Calypso, Merengue, Zouk and Reggae, plus contemporary pop classics. With their roots in Trinidad, their sunny approach and energetic line-up including steel pan is perfect for any beach-themed or multicultural event.

Pan Pioneers – steel band supremos

The infectious sound of a steel band – on the move! Pan Pioneers is the only ‘Pan Around the Neck’ steel band to survive to this day, with pans slung round the players’ shoulders so that the band can play on the move. These steel band supremos are perfect for events from major festivals to small private parties – grab a glass of punch and check out their demo tracks!

Jeanette Springer – queen of limbo

When only the best limbo dancer will do, those in the know book Jeanette. And just in case the weather isn’t hot enough for your event, Jeanette limbos under flaming bars as part of her act!

Mariachi Tequila – strolling mariachi band

Who can resist the cheeky trumpet and traditional tight trousers of this hot mariachi band, combining the passion of Mexican music and Latin American classics with the fire of tequila. Tremendous at any event where you want a band to mingle with crowds, such as a street party, shopping promotion, travel show, product launch, themed party or just for the fun of it.

Bamboleo – Gypsy Kings tribute

Love the sound of the Gypsy Kings but don’t *quite* have the budget? Bamboleo are a brilliant tribute band playing the Kings’ greatest hits including Bem Bem Maria, Volare, My Way (A mi Manera), and Djobi Djoba. For extra flair and excitement, opt for the full five performer line-up with live percussion, and add a flamenco dancer or two for the full Spanish Latin-Rumba style.
