Born within six years of each other, sisters Grace, Kay and Jill grew up in a house where music could always be heard. One of the most often heard was the big band sound of Glenn Miller and his orchestra which of course included the much loved Andrews Sisters…
The Fenner Sisters found from an early age that singing in three part harmony came naturally to them and would do so at every given opportunity. The next step was learning to play musical instruments and later, when in their teens, forming their own band to perform a wide range of songs including original material.
Inspiration also comes from the Boswell Sisters, the original sister trio, who grew up in New Orleans in the early 1900s and very much influenced the Andrews Sisters.
The Fenner Sisters have brought the Andrews Sisters music back to life, some of which has not been heard for 70 years.
They have recently put together a five piece Swing / Jive band, The Swingin’ Privates, and their set now includes songs from:
Stray Cats, Brian Setzer, Cherry Poppin’ Daddies and others along with Andrews / Boswells favourites such as Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, In The Mood and Write Myself a Letter.
Line up is Double Bass, Piano, Guitar, Drums and Trumpet.
As well as their own band, they also perform with Jason Isaacs, who recently won the Peoples Crooner competition, Dave Connolly Big Band, Ray Chester Orchestra, Tees Valley Jazzmen, Greg Francis Orchestra and others.
They have appeared at venues and events around the UK and in August this year the sisters will be returning to the Edinburgh Festival with Jason Isaacs.

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!

I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
