Not content with putting on arguably the best air and motoring Show in the UK, Wings & Wheels has added evening entertainment to the weekend line-up with not one but three different sounds to get visitors dancing on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August.
With big crowds and so much to see and do in the air and on the ground, the Surrey Show is extending the entertainment to 8pm on Saturday so visitors can relax and unwind at the end of the day with music, food and drink.
Down in the revamped Military Zone where military vehicles, re-enactors and the aerodromes history can be found, a live DJ from the 1940s Radio Station will be recreating the sounds of the 1940s from England and America.
Swing, Big Band and Jazz will get dancers jiving and the crowds jumping as they entertain visitors throughout the day until late.
Nestled on a stage of straw in amongs some hot rods and vintage shopping, the popular Hot Rod Zone will be rocking through the night thanks to Lights Out. Influenced by The Jets, Elvis Presley, Eddie Cochran and Johnny Cash, Dan, Craig and Lee have toured the UK and Europe as Lights Out with their mix of Rock n Roll, Doowop and Rockabilly.
And finally, taking centre stage in the middle of the arena, is local band Geneva. They’ve something for everyone thanks to their huge repertoire ranging from 50s Rock’n’Roll, through 60s Soul, 70s Funk, 80s Pop, 90s Indie and the best artists of the present-day.
Band members between them have played everywhere from Glastonbury Festival to Everest Base-camp, on TV shows including Later with Jools, Top of the Pops and TFI Friday, and with legends such as Reef, Ronnie Wood, Kula Shaker, Procol Harum and Freak Power. They’ll keep playing if people keep dancing.
Sunday’s not been forgotten as we open the centre stage to a host of up and coming local bands who can’t wait to strut their stuff from 6pm to 8pm.
Jamie McAllister, Event Director comments: “As Wings & Wheels gets bigger and bigger its important the Show keeps up and anticipates our visitor’s needs. Evening entertainment is the Show’s next evolution and is our way of easing the big rush home by providing a place people can relax, drink, eat and socialize after the airshow. We hope we’ve got something for everyone with our three very different stages and can’t wait to start the party.”
