The Hot Shoes is an energetic swing ensemble, that guarantees to get your feet tapping with their exciting arrangements from the swing era and beyond. The band was founded with Lindyhop and Swing Dancers in mind, but we find that our broad repertoire is popular with all ages and tastes. Ideal for weddings, parties and dance events the Hot Shoes is a professional, experienced and entertaining band that always goes down well! The core element of our music is based on the 1920s swing style, including songs such as the Charleston, It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing and Is you is or is you ain't my baby.

What event planners say about our suppliers


” Our experience with Ariella Strings was wonderful – from the moment we initially got in contact with them to after the wedding we couldn’t fault them. They played before & throughout our ceremony, through the drinks reception and provided the music for dinner and added just the right touch of beauty to our wonderful day. They were very well organised and so helpful during our music meetings – which is just what you need during the hectic planning stages! All of our guests have complimented us since, on our choice of music for the big day and I will be happily handing out their contact details for all future weddings and events! Thank you for making our wedding everything we imagined it would be and more!” Mr and Mrs Kerr Wedding 16th May 2015 Woburn Sculpture Gallery – wedding ceremony, drinks reception & wedding breakfast


I was luckily enough to have the carol singing trio at my work Christmas in which I organised. They were excellent, everyone was extremely impressed by them. It was a pleasure having them, they was happy and willing to do exactly what we asked of them, they were in no rush to leave as soon as their time was up. I will definitely be advising friends and family to book them with any up coming events they have. As a company we want to say a massive thank you!


• "Loved every song the guys did – and, being a guitarist, was especially impressed and inspired by Vic’s virtuoso performance – so much so that from that night, I’ve hired him for weekly guitar lessons! The band all round are seriously talented musicians and for sure we’ll look to use them again at any excuse." David,
