Act Profile

The Fastbacks

Chic and cool, they take popular songs currently in the charts and classic songs we all know and give them The Fastbacks treatment. Their influences are very varied including Motown and Northern soul, Funk, Jazz, New Orleans Rhythm and Blues and Reggae. The vintage sound is created with instruments from the 60s and 70s and played with a love of classic music from that period.

The Fastbacks are a themed band that will change the mood of any event. They have had years of experiences in performing at corporate events, festivals, weddings, music venues and various other situations.

The band arrive in style with tweed suits, flat caps, vintage equipment, mood setting lighting and a full PA.

The recorded music they play in between sets continues the cool vintage vibe so the whole night will see guests being transported to distant time periods when music shaped and influenced the youth of their time, and has continued to do this for generations.

The Fastbacks were featured in OK Magazine in May 2015 when they played at Emmerdale star Michelle Hardwicks marriage to partner Rosie Nicholl.

The Fastbacks recently appeared in the film 'Youth' with the likes of Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel. Their version of 'You Got The Love' became the title track of the film and has gained a lot of interest for the band. They also toured Germany supporting Simply Red in Summer 2016.

Testimonials

Yes everything went great thank you, we couldn't have been happier with our choice or their performance. They were also great to deal with before the day itself.

-Robert Griffiths Nov 2015


Stephen Dagnall, Gladstone Village Hall, Neston, 2nd July 2016
Just wanted to say thanks for last night - We have had nothing but positive comments from our guests about yourselves - including the photographer who said that you were probably the best wedding band he had seen! Everyone seemed to have a really good dance too, so thank you!


Huw Friar, Haddon Hall, Bakewell, 17th June 2016
We booked Black Cadillac for our wedding. They looked and sounded amazing, and were accommodating to all our requirements on the day. Everyone loved them, and kept people on the dance floor all night long. Have already recommended to some friends.


Graham Oldham Campbell. The Belle Epoque, Knutsford, 11th June 2016
These guys were recommended for our wedding, and now I know why. Contact and booking was easy and slick, set up was discreet. The performance was lovely, engaging and had everybody up and on their feet. Real good selection of music. Totally recommended to make your night. We and our guests loved em.


Dan McGlynn, Styal Lodge, Cheshire, 3rd June 2016
Paul - thank you so much for such an incredible performance last night. I honestly cannot tell you how perfect every single tune was. I can think of no better band for our wedding. So many compliments for you guys. Heartfelt thanks to you all from both of us.


James Armstrong, Eaves Hall, Clitheroe, 29th May 2016
Don't think I grabbed you before you left, just thought I'd drop a text to say thanks for last night, you went down an absolute storm, was quality! Would highly recommend the band!


Lucy Caffreym, East Lodge Hotel, Matlock, 19th May 2016
The booking system was both easy and efficient. Helen was a little slow in responding to our queries but apologised as she had been out of the country. The music produced by Helen and her partner was wonderful. We really enjoyed it, her voice is lovely one of guest compared her to carol carpenter!! They were very flexible and even learned a requested song during their break - how accommodating was that? The music was varied and so good we would like to say thank you to them. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.


Helen Roscoe, Private grounds wedding in Widnes, 14th May 2016
Black Cadillac are a wonderfully talented, quirky, unique group of musicians, offering old and new classics and making them their own. They kept people on the dance floor and suited the vibe of our wedding perfectly. We didn't need to choose a set list because we trusted their ability to work with the feel of the party. Great communicators and a really friendly group, we highly recommend them for any event, gig, wedding or festival!


Becky Titley and Chris Malbon, Yeldersley Hall, Derbyshire, 30th April 2016
Black Cadillac were fantastic at our wedding, they tailored & performed our first dance better than we could have dreamed of! Their music got everyone on the dance floor, even my Nan had a dance! Paul was easy to communicate with prior to the wedding and the band were professional throughout.


Richard and Rudi Lewis, Ox Pasture Country House Hotel, Scarborough, 9th April 2016
The band were fantastic, really friendly guys, great music, great style, really made the evening. Highly recommended!


Alison Whalley, WMBRC, Bowness on Windermere, 2nd April 2016
I booked Black Cadillac for my birthday party having seen their website and loved their sound. They were amazing - so much better than I'd hoped! The sets were varied enough to keep all guests happy and Helen sang a brilliant version of Moon River for me. I can't recommend them highly enough - book them!!! Thank you to the whole band - you made my evening even more special!


Will Dashwood, The Crook Barn, Barnsley, 13th Feb 2016

5/5 Fabulous band and really professional to deal with. Would highly recommend.


Ian Morrison, The Priory Home Farm, Wetherby, 22nd August 2015
Just an email to say a MASSIVE thank you to the Band, for playing at our Wedding Reception at The Priory on Saturday. You guys were exactly as we had hoped and, on behalf of Emma and I, thank you for helping to give us such a special day. The musical style, along with the attention to detail, was brilliant and we received many positive comments about your performance on the evening. When we spoke on the night I recall you referring to yourself as an “anti-Wedding band” – safe to say I think you’ve cornered this market and everyone was impressed by the uniqueness of what they saw and heard.
