Singing the Billboard hits from the Golden Eras of Swing and Jive, the Bugle Babes are a 1940's style close-harmony trio, inspired by The Andrews Sisters and the Hollywood stars of stage and screen. Whether adorned in retro military uniforms of soft satin dresses, the Bugle Babes style is pure Vintage from their Victory Rolls all the way down to the toes of their seamed stockings!
Formed by Derby Browne in 2007, The Bugle Babes have performed all over Ireland from The National Concert Hall to the Cork Opera House, and on Radio and Television; including The Late Late Show, Ryan Turbidy, and to "Knock 'em dead!" reviews at the American Embassy on Veterans Day! The Bugle Babes are a regular act upon the stage of The Sugar Club in Dublin!
Farm-fresh Brunette beauty, Eileen Coyle, didn't just tumble from the Cherry Tree, she jumped! Cavan's cutest doll isn't afraid to get her hands dirty down on the farm, but she's no "Tom Boy"! Eileen loves Joan Crawford films, hot Apple Pie, and the smell of freshly cut hay! The delightfully incorrigible Miss Coyle finds Steam Rallies quite steamy and relishes in sneaking off with her flying instructor down to Lover's Lane! Oh my!
Red haired Femme Fatale, Miss Derby Browne, hails from the picturesque coastal village of Clontarf. Derby adores Rita Hayworth films, fully-fashioned seamed silk stockings, and secret rendez-vous in Parisian cafe's! Miss Browne's joie de vivre comes from reading Daphne du Maurier books in her cozy circular bed, dancing to Glen Miller bathed in moonlight and champagne, and playing records in the salon on her gramophone!
Sultry Blonde Bombshell, Lou Van Laake (a.k.a. Truly Divine) slinked her way from the flower fields of Holland to the luscious greens of Ireland in 2004. Not long after Miss Van Laake settled down near Dublin, the buxom blonde with the luscious red lips was discovered by Miss Browne, who knew right away that Lou was one hot dish! Miss Van Laake is wild about Marlene Dietrich and dreams of one day owning a quaint little cottage in the country!
The Bugle Babes perform all over the world entertaining the international jet set, (including Bob Hope's daughter, Linda!) with their coquettish charm, graceful moves, and alluring harmonies! The girls come on like gangbusters, here's a small sample!
The Bugle Babes are sure to bring a touch of vintage glamour and Hollywood romance to any wedding day! The Girls’ extensive songbook of heartfelt and romantic ballads combined with delicious harmonies, seamed stockings, and retro hairstyles, will be the icing on the cup-cake at your reception!
The Bugle Babes repertoir include classic songs by The Andrews Sisters (Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Rum & Coca-Cola), and contemporary pop hits by Beyoncé, Adele, a new arrangement of Jona Lewie's You'll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties, and more! Twisted, shaken, and stirred into a delightful retro "Soda Pop" of a show!
Available with a bespoke backing track or accompanied by a 3 or 7 piece Jazz band, the Trio of pencil-skirted, vintage coiffed, stocking'd ladies will perform a magical blend of Swing and Jive tunes with original arrangements of modern hits. Served up with lots of scintillating glamour, fun, and nostalgia!
