The Charleston Chasers, a ten-piece band who are led by percussionist and vocalist Debbie Arthurs, play hot vintage music like you have never heard before! The Chasers, formed in 1987, are the spearhead band for music from the Art Deco era and they are both the most authentic and the most entertaining group currently performing hot vintage popular music from the Roaring Twenties and Thirties. Their show has been seen in some of the UK’s finest theatres with guest presenters David Jacobs, Eric Knowles and Angela Rippon and features the well-known tunes of the day, including numbers by Fats Waller, George Gershwin, Charlie Kunz and Hoagy Carmichael, performed by top-flight musicians and sung by vivacious vocalists.

The Charleston Chasers have appeared at international arts festivals in Bath, Cheltenham, Edinburgh, Leicester and Lichfield, and performed at open-air concerts for English Heritage, The National Trust and many fundraising events. European festivals have warmly welcomed The Chasers with visits to Denmark, Holland and Switzerland. The Chasers have also staged a number of concerts to raise much-needed funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. The Chasers’ recordings are regularly played on BBC Radio 2 courtesy of Desmond Carrington, Russell Davies and David Jacobs.

Don’t miss this evening because the Charleston Chasers’ brand of foot-tapping, hot vintage music promises a very special occasion.
