In WW2, singers were much more than entertainers. One of the most important parts of the wartime entertainers’ job was to boost morale and patriotism. ENSA (Entertainments National Service Association) members toured Britain and risked their lives overseas entertaining the Allied Forces.
On the home front, all those favourite wartime songs that we still love today were played on the wireless (the radios of their day), in pubs, in air raid shelters and everywhere people gathered.
Today’s WW2 wartime singers like Katie Rogers of Jazz & Cocktails sing at events like weddings and vintage fairs. Those favourite war time songs – the classics of their time – fulfil our love of nostalgia and wartime atmosphere.
Katie is a trained and accomplished wartime singer who is based in the South of Hampshire half way between Southampton and Portsmouth. So, if you’re organising a wedding or a wartime or vintage event in Hampshire , make Katie Rogers of Jazz & Cocktails your first port of call. You can contact her by email or by phone on 07972 692 609.
