The UK’s hottest vintage extravaganza Miss Kiddy and the Cads are thrilled to announce the launch of their debut original single Lockdown Shuffle with a multi-cam theatrical livestream show on November 27th at 8pm. It promises to be a musical highlight of Lockdown 2.0. Music has always boosted spirits in times of struggle and now as Covid-19 continues to affect our everyday lives, this happiness and positivity is needed more than ever.
In the spirit of togetherness and joy, the sextet wanted to create a song and dance to mark the pandemic in musical history and to bring a smile to people’s faces through this second period of quarantine. This is how the track was born.The music video for this single features the band at home, along with their friends and supporters who have sent in personalised videos of themselves during lockdown and sets as a reminder to us all of how we lived and how music kept us going during the challenges of 2020.
Well known on the jazz, festival and cabaret scene, the spectacular Miss Kiddy and the Cads are famed for putting their vintage spin on contemporary pop songs from artists such as Beyonce and Bowie and have appeared on ITV’s Loose Women and This Morning. With show-stopping vocals, authentic costumes, a stunning tap dancer and full 1940s decadence, the band really are a unique musical extravaganza.
Creator Abi Gilchrist (Miss Kiddy) says: ‘We are so proud of our first original track and believe it really captures the essence of 2020. I am very lucky to work with such a talented group of people and we’ve continued to perform together digitally and socially distanced throughout the Covid- 19 restrictions including raising over £3000 for NHS Charities during the first lockdown with our Kitchen Disco series. Ben (Cummings) our trumpet player also plays in Caro Emerald’s band, our drummer Andy (Jones) is a music producer who produced the latest Squeeze album and our MD and pianist / song -arranger Ross (Power) is an award-winning composer and producer for TV and film. We also have The Undertaker on bass Eric (Guy) and Lil’ Missy our fabulous tap dancer, Leah (Wise)’.
