White Mink

White Mink – It’s Magic

Indulge in little magical time-travel. Be transported back to the days of Swing and the Speakeasy. Vintage harmonies, incredible live jazz and a blend of entertainment that’s heady, intoxicating and surprisingly fresh. This is the vintage experience that’s not afraid to mix things up musically, re-imagining swing for the 21st century.

In other words, it’s going to be one heck of a party. Knees up. Dance. Rave. Disco – the names don’t matter because White Mink is unique. Nothing else fuses so many influences. Nothing else has so many fabulous entertainers.

That’s why when guests said goodnight at the end of last year’s sell-out event, they begged us for more. We’ve made them wait a year, but that’s okay because nothing else lasts in the memory like the magic of White Mink.

It’s Christmas, treat yourself

White Mink is even more special when you reserve a booth. Sold out weeks in advance in 2017, our booths seat up to 10 guests and are reserved exclusively for your group throughout the entire evening. You’ll even enjoy waiter service at your table

The White Mink Line up

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

STARRING:

★ SWING ZAZOU

Consistently one of our favourite electro swing bands and regularly on the White Mink stage, these guys play swing that is both contemporary and electronic, but that also (and most importantly for the dancers) actually SWINGS. From classic covers to original material, the 7 piece gypsy jazz line-up includes double bass, guitar, violin, trumpet and clarinet. We’re very pleased to welcome them back to Bristol.

★ MISS KIDDY & THE CADS

We’re delighted to welcome Miss Kiddy & The Cads to White Mink for the first time ever. Reimagining modern songs with a vintage twist, Miss Kiddy and her Cads are a Postmodern Jukebox for the UK bringing show stopping vocals, a sensational band of jazzers, stunning costumes, spectacular tap dancing, and the decadence of early Hollywood all wrapped up in sophisticated Music Hall style revue.

★ JAZ DELOREAN

A special surprise guest this year is lead singer and pianist of cult band Tankus the Henge. Jaz will deliver an all out piano assault in a short sharp set of brilliant piano and vocals in a cabaret setting in his first appearance on the White Mink stage. Having honed his talents on the festival circuit, his unique blend of brilliant musicianship and sardonic humour is sure to deliver an absolute showstopper. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fiKC0VRwgY

★ NICK HOLLYWOOD

Described as a ‘suave impresario’ by The Independent, Nick is the White Mink founder and the brains behind the Freshly Squeezed record label and award-winning WHITE MINK : BLACK COTTON compilation series…

Compere and MC DOUG FRANCISCO

Festival legend and Bristol local, Doug has been a creative behind the scenes at events from Boomtown to Glastonbury’s Lost Vagueness, Shangri-La to the Invisible Circus (which he founded). He has also hosted White Mink parties at the Edinburgh Festival when he was part of our immersive speakeasy residency. Expect surprises!

★ TWIN SWING

You’ll think you’re seeing double when these flapper girl twins take to the stage. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPt-ORauRIo

★ RODNEY & ALEXANDRA

This one is not to be missed – a funny, sexy show that’s full of surprises. Imagine an act you might have seen on the stage in the film Cabaret. Then forget that and think again… the less you know about this the better! A superb double act that once seen will not be forgotten!
