Live Skiffle Band For Hire - Perfect for a Fundraising Charity Ball, Conference, Private Party and Themed Event.


Skiffle came from 1920's America where a "Skiffle Party" or "Rent Party" was held to raise money to pay the rent. People turned up with their own food, drink and home made improvised instruments and paid a small fee to get in. The skiffle bands music they played was an informal mixture of blues, folk, gospel, and jazz and the popular music of the time. It caught on like wildfire in fifties Britain due to its folksy simplicity, the inexpensive instruments and the fact that a reasonable sound could be achieved with little musical experience. It was arguably the most influential UK musical trend of all time and its main contributor was of course, Lonnie Donegan. Skiffle bands play with a great sense of fun and the musical element is only part of the overall experience. These bands definitely give the audience a feel-good experience. So, if you want a special style of music that will undoubtedly bring a smile to everyones face, you should consider the hire of a live skiffle band.
