Book The Toe-Tapping Charm Of Folk Band Rosie & The Riveters

Rosie & The Riveters Promise A Riveting Show

Billed as four fiercely talented and sassy dames from the Prairies, Rosie &the Riveters bring a commanding and surprisingly funny stage presence wherever they go. Delivering the sounds, sights, and style of the 1940s to your event, Rosie & the Riveters are a folk and bluegrass group that has the power to get your guest list on its feet and dancing!

They of course take inspiration from their namesake—Rosie the Riveter, the feminist icon representing the flood of women in the workforce during WWII. You know her image for her bandana covering her hair and the rolled up shirt sleeve revealing her mighty bicep, and it’s been empowering working women around the world for years. Rosie & the Riveters might not don the same coveralls and headband like their namesake —choosing the vintage print dresses of the 40 instead—but they aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and travel the world as the strong and ambitious band that they are. They also strive to make positive changes in women’s lives by donating a portion of their merchandise sales to disenfranchised women from the around the world.

Following the success of their radio single Ain’t Gonna Bother, Rosie & the Riveters have been touring all over Canada with their gospel-inspired roots sound at the biggest folk and bluegrass festivals in the country. When they’re not busy charming the nation’s fair going music fans, Rosie & the Riveters are impressing crowds at corporate celebrations, bringing to the business world the charm of the 1940s.

Think a mixture of Arlo Guthrie, The Good Lovelies, Serena Ryder, Etta James, and The Bros. Landreth, and you’ve got the beginnings of the unique sounds of Rosie & the Riveters. Infused with the toe-tapping melodies of bluegrass, their songs bring to life the vintage flair of another time. But don’t worry. Their show is firmly planted in the 21st century, as they update the traditional folk sounds with lively dances, body percussion, lighthearted charm, and a surprising humour. Altogether, it’s a show that’s guaranteed to get your audience whooping and hollering as they dance along to Rosie & the Riveter’s original numbers.

As Prohibition and Great Gatsby themed parties begin to rise, a lot of the corporate celebrations we help with are taking cues from the 20s, 30s, and 40s. Rosie & the Riveters are perfect when your party needs help taking a journey back in time. But as a touring band with frequent airplay on CBC radio, they’re also an excellent addition to a contemporary bash that needs a fun soundtrack.

Charities events, conferences, and employee appreciation celebrations would do right by Rosie & the Riveters’ unique medley of musical inspiration. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know the biggest hits of gospel, bluegrass, folks, or roots traditions. After an evening with Rosie & the Riveters you will be!
