Miss Kiddy And The Cads

‘Hollywood Glamour, Vintage Sound, Popular Music’

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Sunday 6 th May 2018

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

Miss Kiddy and the Cads are a unique vintage musical sensation featuring ’the Boss’ on piano, Benny ’The Bug’ on trumpet, ’The Undertaker’ on bass, Daddy Beats on drums and not forgetting the breath-taking tap dancing of ‘Lil Missy. This evening will be a show for the most discerning and style-conscious of audiences. Miss Kiddy turns back the clock on every performance to a time when style and sass were the main order of the day. Expect all the hits - from Bowie to Beyonce - with a vintage make over; swinging beats and toe-tapping finesse! Show-stopping vocals, sensational band, stunning costumes, spectacular tap-dancing and the decadence of 1940’s Hollywood all wrapped up in a sophisticated musical comedy revue…. this is Miss Kiddy and the Cads!

“The [Miss Kiddy and the Cads'] show is hugely entertaining… these imaginative new (but old) versions are playful, sophisticated and witty. The band are note-perfect and tightly drilled…. the crowd loved it.”

Review from ‘I Went to the Theatre’ (June 2017)

Launched in 2016 to a capacity crowd at The Pheasantry, this glamorous and original band has been making great waves in the Jazz scene with 8 sold out public shows since their launch.
In summer 2017, Miss Kiddy and her Cads played at various festivals around the UK including bringing some vintage sparkle to Camp Bestival, the Strode Park summer season in Kent and Bestival. in addition to this, they were delighted to headline the re-launch of the famous Simpsons in the Strand restaurant in London and to bring in the new year at the exclusive Lanesborough Hotel in Mayfair.

Following the release of their debut CD ‘Live at PizzaExpress’ (recorded live at their sold out show in April 2017), Miss Kiddy and the Cads will be performing at the Henley Festival, the Iford Arts festival in Bath and the Southbank’s Wonderground Festival in Summer 2018.
