"A warm retro sort of rockabilly sound that speaks to your heart and dancing feet, evoking the emotion you don’t get from modern pop songs"

City Beats


Dynamic. Different. Unique.


Known for their musicianship and high energy performances, Bamboozle take influences from the 20's to 50's and combine them with today's popular music, in a way that mesmerises both retro loving and modern audiences.


The band combines singer/bassist/songwriter Serena Sykes, lighting up the stage with her dynamic performances, electric vocal and daring double bass stunts, with internationally renowned singer/guitarist/songwriter Jim Knowler (The Keytones, Gotz Alsmann), injecting his exciting and instantly recognisable guitar riffs, backed by stylish drummer/vocalist, Jax Titmus, bringing her rhythmic ideas and energetic performances to complete the line up.


Their debut album, RETROgrade has been a great success with audiences, and the band can be seen throughout the UK and Europe, with new recordings in collaboration with Dean Street Studios coming in 2023.

“...the future looks Bamboozled”

Slap That Bass Reviews

“...the talent and musicianship on display here has set the bar very high.”

UK Rock and Roll Magazine


“Great musicianship, a super rockin’ vibe and a stellar set from the four piece. Excellent.”

The Bettajive Review


“...a very fun, uplifting, melodic and cool retro outfit who deliver a jangly 50’s-esque sound that gets you swinging in the aisles. We predict big audiences having a lot of fun and dancing to this in the streets. What a refreshing change from the usual pop rubbish out there.”

Chasing Tunes

 "...a warm retro sort of rockabilly sound that speaks to your heart and dancing feet, evoking the emotion you don’t get from modern pop songs. Well worth a listen and should be on some B Movie soundtrack.”

City Beats


“...amazingly sweet but ruff and ready vocal harmonies, thumping retro Pulp Fiction/Beatles type beats and shimmering bouncy guitars. All we can picture is a roadhouse with some pretty girls drinking milkshakes while eying up The Fonz or Archie…..we love this it’s classic and it hits our Groovy barometer at 10/10.”

Groove Magazine

 “Mayhem is their stunning new double A-side single and its oh so good! Well worth adding to your 45 collections, highly recommended.”
