Music, Pop Culture and Summer Entertainment: hot acts for summer 2019
‘Pop culture’. Regardless of your age, the very words can trigger certain memories, images, and events that have permeated the public consciousness. It celebrates influence and infamy in equal measure, creating cultural icons that remain timeless from one generation to the next.
Whether you're thinking of Andy Warhol's ‘Marilyn Monroe’ prints, the photo of Freddie Mercury with one fist raised in the air at St James' Park or Che Guevara's face on a knock-off holiday t-shirt, it's not hard to see how these examples of cultural capital have kept alive and well within the public eye.
Entertainment is constantly evolving to meet public demand, with film releases, band reunions and cultural events driving bookings throughout the year, and this year we're expecting to see some interesting trends in our bookings looking forward.
With that in mind, we've compiled a list of some of our favourite tribute acts that have already been in high demand this year hot on the tail of some of this year's cultural phenomenons.
Deemed as the UK's most authentic live tribute to Queen, our tribute band aims to make Queen's legacy for live performances available to the masses, using authentic instruments and costumes. Hot on the heels of "Bohemian Rhapsody", there's no better time to book them!

Bringing you the spirit and sleaze of 80s glam-metal, our talented Motley Cru tribute act are here to kickstart your party and keep guests rockin' all night long with hits from the giants of rock that are Mötley Crüe
Whilst they might not be Mötley Crüe, our 80s Rock Tribute band definitely have the chops to take you to Paradise City, ensuring they get the audience ‘Jump’ing for joy as Guns 'N' Roses, Van Halen and more are played throughout their classic setlist.

You don't need a rocket, man. Our authentic Elton John tribute act is here to take you on a journey through time right back to Elton's classic hits of the 70s, 80s and 90s.
With his signature piano in tow and outfits rhinestoned to their very limit, our performer is perfect for themed events and can be booked as a soloist or with a full backing band.

Spice Up Your Life
Biopics aren't the only thing fuelling the trend. The Spice Girls are returning for a UK tour on the 1st of June and we're anticipating that we'll be seeing more requests coming in for acts to provide some Girl Power.
We've picked one of our favourite Spice Girls tributes available for you to book so that you can ensure your guests will Wanna Be There for your next event.

With Fleetwood Mac also on a gargantuan tour throughout the rest of May and on into the end of September, we're expecting that we'll continue to see a huge level of tribute band requests coming in.
To make life easier, here’s one of our most authentic Fleetwood Mac tributes.

Elton John and Cher
Some things are meant to be, like squash at Wimbledon or Pimms on a sunny evening. With the ever-popular pop giant Cher in the midst of a 2019 tour and the Elton John biopic arriving imminently, there is probably never going to be a better time to book our Elton John & Cher tribute act.
Encapsulating the very essence of these two cultural icons, this award-winning husband and wife duo are here to take you on a journey of laughter and nostalgia as they deliver charming and witty renditions of songs you know and love.

This year's trend towards biopic movies has seen roaring successes with Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody", Mötley Crüe's "The Dirt" and we're eagerly awaiting this month's release of Elton John's "Rocket Man".
Helping bring a new wave of fans for all of the above whilst reminding older audiences why they loved them in the first place has meant that at Scarlett Entertainment we've seen a huge spike in requests for tribute acts since the beginning of the year, and we're expecting this trend to continue onwards into summer as more biopics are released and gigs are announced.
