The Long Straws - Vintage/Modern Brighton Wedding & Party Band

We are The Long Straws - welcome to our website!

Are you looking for something different to entertain your party guests? Are you a huge fan of modern chart hits, rockabilly, swing and good old-fashioned rock n roll? We could be the dancefloor-filling band you are looking for!

We're a four-piece vintage-modern party band for hire reigning from Brighton, East Sussex, and we're available UK wide! We specialise in authentically transporting recent, modern chart hits back to the rockabilly, dance hall hay-days of the 1950s - perfect for lovers of all things vintage!

Along with covering modern rock and pop tracks like 'Uptown Funk', 'Shake It Off' and 'Can't Feel My Face', we also have classic tracks in our repertoire from artists such as, Nina Simone, Peggy Lee and Diana Krall. See our complete track list on the repertoire tab.

Please check out our audio tracks and videos to get a flavour of our vintage style!
