Act Profile

The Beach Twangers

Riding along on the crest of a wave the The Beach Twangers unique take on old favourites and modern classics has brought them from the pubs and clubs of North London to the key venues of The Shepherds Bush and Hackney Empires via The French Riviera and many live TV and Radio appearances. Whether warming the crowd (with spectacular success!) at Pulps 'In the Park' festival or entertaining the arts elite at The ICA Xmas party the band never fails to deliver fun and frolics.
The Escovido brothers deadpan delivery of their cheeky instrumental arrangements appeals to young and old alike by simultaneously evoking an era when rock & roll and the surf instrumental were king whilst delivering witty versions of such modern material as Pulp's 'Babies', Radiohead's 'Creep' and Britney Spears' 'Toxic' All this with set moves performed in a glorious blaze of technicolor Hawaiian or Bolero shirts, fezzes and Elvis shades.
In short, this band are about FUN. Never failing to captivate an audience and get them singing, smiling, dancing and laughing with glee they are the PERFECT PARTY BAND. Never more so than when supplemented with their 'In House' dancers The Hula Honeys whose grass skirts, floral garlands and florescent wigs create a further blaze of colour as they frug, shimmy and well..hula their way across the stage.

Testimonials

'One of the highlights of the Big Chill weekend' - THE TIMES

Thank you so much for making the other night such a fantastic party, your band has to be the best I have ever had the pleasure of dancing too!!
Lucy Egerton

Thank you so much for another great gig on Friday night. People cannot stop talking about just how fantastic you were. I think that you have gained quite a few new fans!!
Clementine James

"The night finished with a gloriously unexpected surprise in the Dome - The Beach Twangers.

Resplendant in Hawaiian shirts and fezzes, and boasting two dancing hula girls, the unorthodox quartet produced a brilliant set. With scant regard for music fashions they lurched from Nirvana to the Beach Boys, and Britney Spears to classical, all played in their own unique way.

Resistance was futile, and well-refreshed guests were begging them to stay long after they downed their instruments."

You guys were great, we will definitely keep your details and be in touch soon hopefully with another job.
