The standard 3-piece line-up consists of not one, but two lead vocalists backed by double bass, piano and acoustic guitar. The Fireflies have influences in Folk, Doo Wop, Soul and Rock N Roll and their extremely wide repertoire spans from Mumford and Sons to Bob Dylan, The Everley Brothers to Johnny Cash and June Carter. This is a band with really broad appeal, you can be assured every single one of your guests will be delighted!
Front singers Paul and Helen, from successful bands The Detroits & The Detroits Sister Band, are the driving force behind The Fireflies. Having both lead vocalists in this trio allows them to cover material such as 40s/50s Doo Wop and Rock n Roll as well as classic Pop songs from the 60s, all of which have distinctive vocal harmonies. Guitarist Paul plays a kick drum and double bassist Hugo adds some tambourine to achieve an amazingly full sound from such a small band. The Fireflies are equally at home playing lively evening sets at wedding receptions, private functions and corporate events as they are providing background entertainment for drinks receptions, etc.
With Paul and Helen being a couple, the band are constantly learning new and quirky material to play. The Folk revival that is happening currently is not passing this band by either! The song choices are very varied but all very well known. Rock n Roll classics are often used in films and on adverts so there repertoire appeals to a wide audience. The music is so simple and accessible anyway, so any less familiar songs are still easy to get up and dance to! If you’re looking for a quirky band that will be remembered and enjoyed by your guests then look no further than The Fireflies.
They can scale up to a quartet, usually required for evening engagements, or down to a duo to suit your needs. Drums may be added and piano can be substituted with accordion to create a fully acoustic and therefore portable band, independent of power.
