Chic and cool and perfect for a wedding or party with a vintage or retro theme. Unlike other retro bands they take popular songs from todays charts, as well classics that everyone knows and change them up in their own style. Their draw on a whole host of influences to make their versions of tunes more interesting including Motown & Northern soul, Funk, Jazz, New Orleans Rhythm and Blues and Reggae. To compliment their vintage sound the band play with instruments from the 60s and 70s.

The Camaros are a retro themed band that can change or compliment the mood of any event. Having spent years performing at corporate events, festivals, weddings, music venues and various other situations they have the experience needed to get guests up and dancing and singing along from the start to the finish.

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. For the whole night you will see your guests transported to distant time periods when music shaped and influenced the youth.

The Camaros appeared in the Paolo Sorrentino film 'Youth' with Michael Caine in early 2016, and were chosen for this role in the film due to their unique 60s inspired image. The band have also toured with Simply Red and are going back out to tour Germany in Autumn 2016 to release their first album.

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! - Stephen Dagnall, Gladstone Village Hall, Neston, 2nd July 2016

We booked the Camaros 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. - Huw Friar, Haddon Hall, Bakewell, 17th 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. - Graham Oldham Campbell. The Belle Epoque, Knutsford, 11th June 2016
