Meet the Belles

IMG_0683.JPG
Every story needs a beginning, and this one began when three belles from the Midlands, united by a love of vintage and vocal harmony, decided to share their musical talents with the world - and the trio was born! Affectionately named 'The Midlands' Sweethearts', this fabulous retro girl group will dazzle you with bundles of charm from a bygone age!
 
The Belles perform nationwide, and have sung at some of the largest 1940s and vintage events in the country. They are available for all types of event including weddings, birthdays, afternoon teas, anniversaries, wartime weekends, corporate events, hotel & restaurant entertainment, vintage fairs, themed events - we could go on and on and on....

Carrie-Anne

 

Our ravishing redhead, Carrie-Anne, is no stranger to the vintage stage, having been performing the music of the 1940s and 50s for over ten years!

More at home in slippers than stilettos, you'll usually find our self-confessed 'Grandma' of the group backstage sipping on a cup of tea!

Carrie-Anne's vintage icon is the stunning, fellow-redhead Rita Hayworth, the top pin-up girl for GIs during the Second World War.

Carrie-Anne's performing highlights include featuring on prime time TV in the BBC's 'Frank Sinatra: Our Way' and entertaining in beautiful places all over the world including the Caribbean.

 

Beth

 

Affectionately known as 'the Captain', Beth is our spokesperson and is also responsible for arranging all of our gorgeous three-part harmony arrangements!

 

A huge lover of Musical Theatre, Beth has performed leading roles in classic shows 'West Side Story', 'South Pacific' and 'The Sound of Music' to name just a few! Beth was also fortunate enough to feature in the West End Ensemble in 'Musicals: The Greatest Show' filmed at the London Palladium for the BBC.

 

Being a huge fan of 1950s musical films, Beth's vintage icons are blonde songstresses Mitzi Gaynor and Betty Hutton, who played characters with 'gumption'!

 

Jimmi-Anne

Our blonde bombshell Belle, Jimmi-Anne is the 'Mary Poppins' of the group who always comes prepared and keeps the other Belles in check!

 

Jimmi's vintage icon is the one and only Judy Garland - her showstopping voice, amazing stage presence and huge character have been a massive influence during her performing life so far.

Jimmi's previous experience includes performing at the Royal Albert Hall and Birmingham Symphony Hall, and in the musical 'Silas Marner' by Howard Goodall.

Jimmi's eclectic musical taste spans many styles and decades, from Queen, to Celtic Woman, to the Trans-
Siberian Orchestra!
