The Charlies were snatched by aliens whilst performing at The Savoy Ballroom in 1927. Deposited in second millennia UK still in their twenties garb, the chaps have been entertaining and amusing contemporary audiences ever since. The Charlie Charleston Revue play a delightful repertoire of quirky and original tunes from the 1920s and 30s.
In July 2012 they were honoured to play by request for Prince Charles and Camilla during their tour of the island. In September 2012 they played at The Benevolence Ball at Cafe de Paris, organised by Sir Timothy Ackroyd and Chief Superintendent David Clarke, (City of London Police).
