With both male and female lead vocals, they move seamlessly between their eclectic repertoire of modern pop and folk, rock 'n' roll and country songs featuring everyone from The Beatles, David Bowie and Johnny Cash to Billie Eilish, Lewis Capaldi and Lady Gaga as well as Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys and Imagine Dragons.

They are an ideal choice for an outdoor event, especially valuable in the current climate! They can also provide mood-setting music for daytime/ceremony of a wedding or in the background of a corporate event or party. They also have a roaming option with guitar and accordion so they can move around guests whilst singing acoustically.

Singers Paul and Helen have toured Europe with Simply Red, released an album with Universal Germany and have played all over the world in places such as Red Square in Moscow and the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai.  

Detroit Vintage Duo are equally comfortable playing at large scale events as well as small house parties. They are happy to lead singalong sessions with their wide repertoire of songs to choose from and value a truly interactive musical experience. They also have their own small PA so you don't need to worry about 

If you’re looking for a quirky daytime act, with a love of music from across the decades and genres, then look no further than Detroit Vintage Duo. If you love their sound but are looking for a full band for an evening performance then Paul and Helen have you covered! Make sure to check out their five-piece band Detroit Vintage to give your evening guests a party they'll never forget!

Detroit Vintage Duo

Detroit Vintage Duo really made my birthday, we had a fantastic evening, 10 out of 10! Everything you did for me, organisation etc, very professional. Thank You!

Detroit Vintage Duo

Just like to thank you both for your performance last Saturday night in Cirencester.
Everyone really loved the music, it was one of the liveliest International meetings I have ever seen, all thanks to your performance.

Detroit Vintage Duo

I would just like to thank you and all the band for providing a great evening of music. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I’ve had so many comments saying how much people enjoyed and felt really comfortable with your music choices. PS – I think you’ve gained quite a few new fans.

Detroit Vintage Duo

Just a quick one to say thanks so much to you and Helen!!! I didn’t get to see you when you finished as the evening guests had started arriving I think! I was worried I’d end up missing lots of things I wanted to do but I’m so thrilled I saw loads of your songs. We had SO many people coming up to us saying how brilliant you were - honestly you were fab! So talented. We’re so glad we booked you!!! Xx

Detroit Vintage Duo

Andy and I would like to say a massive thank you to both of you. You were exactly what we wanted and everyone has been saying how fab you were! The manager at Drapers Hall has even said he’d like you back there - not sure how you’d feel about the journey!
You really made the evening, so once again, many thanks!

Detroit Vintage Duo

You and your music was just the magic we needed on Saturday afternoon!
Many thanks indeed for giving us such a treat and getting our party started, against that damp and cool background too! The tunes were all terrific and you were both so calm, warm and patient with us all.
I hope there'll be another opportunity to hear you play again soon.

Detroit Vintage Duo

The band were the highlight of our wedding! They were professional but really good fun! All our guests loved them and they really got the party started. They learned our first dance song which sounded beautiful. I would thoroughly recommend Detroit Vintage Duo.

Detroit Vintage Duo

We were delighted to book Detroit Vintage Duo for our wedding. Their music and style were perfect! Paul was really helpful in making the arrangements and advising on a setlist. The performance on the night was fantastic and really made it a party to remember!

Detroit Vintage Duo

Now I've come back down to earth I just want to say a huge thank you to you both for what an amazing job you did! You were absolutely fantastic and Craig was over the moon! You played all our favourite songs and we got so many compliments from the guests! I shall write you a 5-star review as it’s the least you deserve for absolutely making our day the perfect day it was. Thanks so much again!

Detroit Vintage Duo

Thank you so much for coming and doing such an amazing job for us! So sorry we didn’t get to say bye and thank you as you left, but we really appreciated the amazing job you did. All our guests commented on how fab you were. I hope you weren’t too boiling in that room like the rest of us were!!

Detroit Vintage Duo

This band sound amazing! Beautiful acoustic vocals, the balance of a male and female voice worked so well. They sent us their song list before the wedding and we liked it all. They do a great mix of classic and modern songs through the eras to suit everyone. We also asked them to learn some specific songs for us to make an entrance to which they did with no questions and they did them perfectly. We also asked them to move to a different location for the last set which they did so smoothly and we didn’t even notice them moving and re-setting up. They were the perfect addition to our wedding, all our guests loved the music and many guests complimented them! 5/5

Detroit Vintage Duo

Just to say a huge big fat thank you for the incredible music at our wedding at Bach Wen. You did a fantastic job and it was so great to everyone dancing the night away... exactly what we dreamed of.

Detroit Vintage Duo

We're so grateful to Detroit Vintage Duo. They were perfect for the drinks reception. We wanted to create a happy and chilled atmosphere and they did this for us. They sounded awesome and played a fabulous range of music (that I saw everyone singing along to). I also need to highlight how helpful and lovely they were and how we wouldn't have been able to have the ceremony we wanted without them. We wanted our brother to sing us down the aisle, outside. We weren't sure how to do this as we couldn't use extension cables etc... Detroit Vintage Duo not only gave loads of advice on this but ended up coming early to loan my brother their equipment. Thank you so, so much guys.

Detroit Vintage Duo

Just a note to say that we hugely enjoyed having Detroit Vintage Duo play at our wedding on 17 June.
Paul has been amazing to work with and reassuringly on the ball. One thing I really didn't need to worry about in a sea of many other worries!
Paul and Helen pulled off two excellent sets, which everybody enjoyed. My aunt, who's been having a terrible time with family ill health and hadn't been seen dancing since the 1960s, danced her heart out and had a blast. As we all did.
The guys even learned a traditional Jewish wedding song in between sets at the (unreasonable) request of a family member. So big kudos there too.
Amazing times and memories. Biggest thanks,

Detroit Vintage Duo

Love Detroit Vintage Duo! Was so happy to find them for my wedding a couple of years ago, Paul was great to deal with and everybody commented on how good they were for weeks after. They sound authentic and always look like they are enjoying themselves whilst playing. Recently booked them again when I was helping my Dad organise a big 50th birthday and they were great!

Detroit Vintage Duo

Great music and atmosphere all night! Detroit Vintage Duo played at our wedding in Capestang, France. We asked for help with the set and they provided the perfect music based on suggestions. They arrived at our venue and were set up in no time, doing everything themselves. Our guest loved the music, everyone was up and dancing. We've also passed on the link to Detroit Vintage Duo website, as guests would like to see them play back in the UK. The perfect band for any event!

Detroit Vintage Duo

We just wanted to thank you SO much for how amazing you were at our wedding reception on 5th May. I can’t even put into words how fantastic the day was and how your music and whole “vibe” helped shape it. It was just perfect and was more amazing than we could have ever hoped for! Everybody was just on the dance floor all night; I know I for one couldn’t get off the dance floor!!!
Every time we talk about the wedding our guests ALWAYS mentions how amazing you were so I just wanted to thank you so much. As well as being extremely talented you were absolutely lovely as well.
