The Meaning of Burlesque!

The word is “Americana” and came from the Italian word “Burla“, meaning to “create a joyful atmosphere and dress up to perform or just be playful and have fun”!


Burlesque are an exciting (Female fronted) five piece function band.

The band are an eclectic mix of a young energetic and talented female vocalists complimented by four extremely accomplished male musicians, who are equally visual and have a vast amount of experience between them some of whom provide backing vocals.

Individually the band members have professional experience dating from the early 1970s to the present day, which is then applied to the learning and performance of each song on our set-list..

The band members all came together with a single mission:

To use their vast and varied experience to become one of today’s best party and function bands, and play quality well known music that can keep the dance floor full all night long!

Using our combined talents we work extremely hard (rehearsing weekly) to create a superb visual and musical show, which as well as being enjoyable to listen to fills the dance floor all night long!

We perform a great selection of songs from the sixties to the present day, please note we perform these songs and not just play them!


Our Mission

To fill the dance floor from the very first song, to the very last song of our performance!

For a sensational musical performance at your corporate function, celebration, wedding reception, or that very special party!
