Big Button Boys
An original good-time band: gentrified pop in 1920s fashion.
These chaps were top-drawer... before they mysteriously disappeared during an unsanctioned experiment into telekinetic time travel! Serendipitously, the entire line-up was safely conveyed to the twenty-first century, re-emerging with that same hedonistic boom.
Striking out with hotsy-totsy, modern vigour, they elegantly escort carnivals of wild, youthful creatures into the decade of excess and innovation. Their contagious zeal bewitches even the most unwilling wallflower, rekindling the spirit of the Ritz and champagne fizz of the flappers. An esteemed musical fraternity, they proffer the hottest modern hits with precision and humour, ushering in 20s style with gentrified contemporary pop. Towering above the dance hall assembly, celebrity socialite Lord Acton and his roaring band, The Big Button Boys exemplify the eccentricity and sparkle of 1920s British style and rhythm.
Lord Acton - Parlour Guitar and Vocals
Jamie Stockbridge - Tenor Saxophone
Diane Hammond - Clarinet and vocals

Hey just a quick line to say that the boys were awesome on Saturday and all of our guests remarked on how great they were. It’s a shame that you yourself were not there, but the deputy singer was class. Well done, Sheikhs, you do great work!

Just wanted to send a note to say thank you so much for last night you were absolutely brilliant and whole agency are raving about you today, you completed the night!
We first saw Brian and his band play at a friends wedding and booked them for ours the very next day. They were the icing on the cake for our wedding day and everyone enjoyed the music and danced all night. The flexibility of their music and talent is fantastic. I can't wait to host another party and book them again. Cheers guys.
