Think vintage and you conjure up images of 1950s prom dresses, afternoon tea from china cups and fantastic hair dos held up with a million grips. We’re brimming over because we are pleased to bring you a little vintage entertainment when you visit the Designer Vintage Bridal Show in the form of the hugely talented and quite gorgeous Sugarfoot Stomp DJs. Want to find out more…?
Tell us a bit about your company. Doris, Daisy, Dixie, Daphne, Dorothy, Dorkas, Dacia and Dakota are a group of time-ladies sent to scintillate the ears with all fine music from the 1920s-1960s. Since 2004 we have been putting on events in all manner of places across Britain such as festivals, subways, country manors, art galleries and even the oldest working cinema in the UK.
Why vintage? What do you love about it and why should everyone else? Whether it’s clothing, advertising, old antique radios or a relic tin of custard powder, the effort that went into design long before the digital age was unsurpassable. We love the music because it’s so timeless and anyone who has come to a Sugarfoot Stomp event has left happy.
Tell us about someone vintage and bridal you follow on social media platforms. Lady Luck Rules Ok, they are London-based and create vintage fashion jewellery. Also The Shellac Sisters are worth checking out, I don’t think that they’re on Twitter but they play all of their music on old 78’s and are similar to us in that they whip up a frenzy at weddings and festivals.
In your particular industry, what do you think is going to be hot in 2011 for our brides to be? I think that vintage music and events have really taken off over the last few years. I think that more and more people will be demanding the music that we play to wrap up their special day as it has proven to be a hit with previous weddings that we have played at.
Which celebrity (dead or alive) would you love to work with? We would love to bring down the house for some of the old Hollywood divas like Joan Crawford or Ava Gardener, I reckon not only would they want a swanky affair but would be up for a knees-up. Something we specialise in!
There are many wedding shows across the UK, so what helped you decide on exhibiting at the new Designer Vintage Bridal Show? As we are West Midland’s-based the idea of this show appealed to us greatly. The setting in Highbury Hall was perfect for us!
If you were a bride to be, who would you really want to see at our show? I would be especially keen to hire an interesting photographer so Steve Gerrard Photography looks good, as he appears to put a fresh spin on the modern wedding picture.
What are you looking forward to at the show? We are really looking forward to meeting other people who are enthusiastic about vintage and old music. When we have dj’d at weddings before it’s always been great talking to the brides and their families beforehand to see how we can help out.
Which of our amazing exhibitors would you like to work with? We’re keen to check out Vintage Frocks ‘n’ Crocks, we always decorate the room at our club nights and I’m looking to get some handy tips from them!
