VE Day Celebrations – update

By Beer festival 2020

Join us for a weekend of VE celebrations including our street party theme on Friday 8th May.

This day will feature live music from the Strictly Smokin’ Band who will be performing a 1940’s set and the sweet harmonies of The Doo Wop Dollies.

We are also featuring music from Mike Memphis (Elvis), The Sleeze Sisters (1970’s Glam rock) and the Fantastic We are Champion (Queen Tribute) and many more!

What better way to celebrate VE day then the sounds of the big bands from the 40’s.

At it’s core – Strictly Smokin’ is a big band. We’re incredibly lucky to have the finest array of commercial musicians in Newcastle playing with the band.

The big band regularly plays jazz clubs and festivals around the UK, but is equally qualified to perform for functions with it’s numerous line ups.



The Doo Wop Dollies are a vintage loving female singing group, bringing you the best songs from the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s
Since 2014 we have been bringing the North East songs from the likes of The Andrew Sisters, The Boswell Sisters, The Chordettes and many more…
