What do you get when you combine the historic setting of the City of Lincoln, with thousands of splendidly dressed Steampunks AND the the finest swing-style function band in London?
….The explosive Art Deco Dance.
All of us in Gatsby’s Jukebox just love getting dressed up for themed events. Seeing everyone looking dapper and wonderfully turned out makes our throw-back to the golden era feel even more authentic. Seeing vintage 1920s and 1930s style come to life through Steampunk fashion at this festival blew us away! It’s not often that our singer Kate feels underdressed, this may be a first!
As we drove into the city we felt like we were on a classic movie set, hats billowed out steam, glitzy golden mechanical waistcoats had cogs that turned, there were exquisite corsets, tasseled flapper dresses, ornate feather headdresses, antique pocket watches, vintage brooches, boots and the shoes…!
It’s easy to see why Asylum Steampunk Festival is the largest and longest running Steampunk Festival in world.
Our Art ‘Deco Dance’ was booked to celebrate the 1920s and 1930s era and style with swing jazz music from the Scott Bradlee songbook, the hugely popular Postmodern Jukebox. Presenting contemporary music with a twist.
We discovered that the Steampunks of Lincoln are not only innovators of fashion but also have unique style on the dance floor, masters of the Charleston dance and a first for us was seeing our audience dancing the Macarena to swing jazz, we love a good surprise!
After one of our liveliest shows to date, we drove home from Lincoln inspired and happy, watch out for some new costumes…
