The burning vintage music we play & type of show.
The Burning Aces play two different types of set, ska, soul & rock’n’roll hits of the 1960s to the year 2010 as well as jazz, swing & jive hits of the 1930s to the 1960s. Both are great fun with interactive audience participation in both genres & include around two hours of live playing. The jazz sets can be played as background music for a light & classy afternoon or as a fully engaging evening of dance-floor-filling music featuring some of jazz’s finest & most memorable songs.
The ska, soul & rock’n’roll sets are also very engaging, louder than the jazz & designed to get people dancing with the grooviest & most iconic vintage hits as well as modern ‘indie’ anthems.
Bugsy Mitchell, the singer, has a great ‘feel’ for passionate music & loves engaging in a friendly & entertaining dialogue with audiences as well as incorporating participatory singing & dancing with the audience into the show. If the audience are shy, Bugsy will hold back & go easy on them but if it’s a party you want, Bugsy will be in his element.
