The Satin Dollz, International 1940s Pin-Up Darlings based in Los Angeles, London and Paris, are a stunning ensemble of singers, tap dancers & downright charming ladies dedicated to delivering an evening of entertainment recalling the golden age of the 1940s Big Band Swing Era. Specializing in authentic retro entertainment, the Satin Dollz are the best for special events, patriotic commemorations & celebrations, WWII, USO and Tiki themes, holidays and are available as a singing trio, a la Andrews Sisters, or the full singing & tap dancing act! Shows can be customized, large or small scale, according to venue size and budget. Be sure to inquire about our Candy Dollz, gorgeous retro hostesses.
I hired the girls for our 1940's USO Party for the residents and boy did they deliver! Voices of angels they were! So happy to have them join us at Victoria Springs. They were worth every penny. The girls showed up early and were ready to go. Very professional and easy to work with. I would absolutely bring them back. Full of life and character, you have to see this amazing show!
We had the Satin Dollz perform for our company's 20th Anniversary Party. They planned three short shows spread out throughout the evening, each with a different theme.
The first set won the crowd over so that as showtime approached for the two other performances, the atrium balcony started filling up so people could be assured a great view.
The girls were delightful, talented and appeared to enjoy themselves as much as the audience. After their last show they even stuck around so our guests could have their pictures taken with them.
Thanks Dollz for making our celebration truly memorable. And for anyone reading this review, I guarantee that like us, your expectations will be exceeded and you'll have a wonderful event that will have your guests smiling from ear-to-ear.
The Satin Dollz were the PERFECT addition to making our "1940's Golden Era of Hollywood" Holiday Party really come together! The Satin Dollz did an amazing job! From the singing to the choreographed numbers to the tap-dancing, the girls really put on a great show.
Everyone at our law firm has been raving about the event and can’t stop talking about the wonderful performances and entertainment these ladies provided!
Allison made the process extremely smooth and even assisted with the timing and flow for the evening and really paid attention to our needs and wants. We don't do a traditional party that is just mingling, open dancing and dinner but we usually do an entire program and Allison and team really heard our requests and crafted their sets to accommodate our program schedule through out the night!
The Satin Dollz did a topnotch job and performance! The outfit changes, the choice of music and dance numbers just made for a spectacular night!
Look forward to hopefully another wonderful event with The Satin Dollz!
As booker for the Jive Aces (the UK's top swing/jive band) I have booked the Satin Dollz to perform with us at many shows both in the UK and the US, most recently at The Cicada Club in Los Angeles this April. The Satin Dollz are an extremely talented group of lovely young ladies - they sing, they dance and even tap dance to the highest professional standards. I'm always extremely happy to have the opportunity to work with the girls, not just for the reasons above, but also because they are all extremely nice people and very easy to work with.

The entire experience with Satin Dollz was absolutely fantastic - from the initial event discussions and planning to the performance. Allison was very responsive and takes the time to understand what we're looking for; coordinating with her was so easy. The Dollz are charming, fun, and so talented. There's no substitute for seeing them perform in person. DJ Dr. Nate was also highly professional and efficient with setting up the sound system and playing music through the event. We're very happy to feature them at our annual summer social. This year's event is definitely memorable thanks to the Satin Dollz. I highly recommend.
The trio was outstanding in bringing the 40's sound and look to the evening.They were very personable and professional interacting with the membership and audience. We'd highly recommend them!
I don't have the words to tell you how wonderful we all thought the Dollz'
performance was. What talented girls! What beautiful young women! What kind
and generous performers!
They were simply grand and so sweet with my little Chloe.
I'm pretty certain I'll be calling you next May to schedule a "Back by
Popular Demand" performance date.
Thank you so much...
Response from Satin Dollz USO Act - 1940s vocals and dance!:
Thanks Barbera! We'd love to come back :)
This the second consecutive year we have had the Satin Dollz perform in Auburn California and without question this community and the Committee who enlisted their services could not be more pleased and they received rave reviews. I fact, if we ever have a need for these wonderful performers they will certainly receive a call.
Thanks again Dollz for a great performance

I booked the Satin Dollz to perform at Hotel Shangrila's 75th Anniversary event in Santa Monica. The performance and professionalism was outstanding. Truly the cherry on top of a great event.
It is always amazing as an event planner to find acts that just make the entire night that much better. The Satin Dollz were so amazing, professional, high energy and just perfect.
I produced a Gatsby Gala for a school and the Satin Dollz performed two sets for the event. Not only were their outfits were so original and fun, all the dancers were beautiful and sweet.
Allison was also beyond helpful throughout the process with suggestions on songs, dances and even helped me book an amazing 1920's band!
I highly recommend them with much love!
The Dollz were a big hit at our cocktail party! Incredibly professional and easy to work with - we would definitely recommend them and hire them again.
I have had the pleasure of working with The Satin Dollz for several years on a fairly consistent basis through my own monthly musical variety show. In my 43 years as a performer I can safely say this is the most versatile and energetic act of its type in North America. All of the girls bring a smile and that extra something to every number they perform and they delight audiences of all age. Given my demograghic runs from 18 to 80, these ladies are always a staple on my show because they bring a polish, professionalism, and a sense of style that is diffcult to find these days. Without a doubt, and I know I speak for my friends at The Bob Hope USO who I do a lot of work with, The Satin Dollz are a must for any program where beauty mixed with talent will take your event to the next level. Personally, I would never work without them because they are simply the best! We have done many shows together and I know we will work again soon.
The Satin Dollz are a fantastic act. Having seen and worked with them dozens of times they always bring a sense of fun with them with great vintage songs, dance routines and now even ukuleles!
They are professional both on and off stage and light up every show with enthusiasm wether appearing with another band or on their own. Thoroughly recommended!!
What to Expect
Audience members are instantly delighted by the Satin Dollz' upbeat and cheerful vocal harmonies and precision tap dancing from the moment they hit the stage. Each Satin Doll(there are a total of 10!) has their own persona and is more charming than the next which allows for audience members to connect with their favorite Satin Doll (or two or three) when they are performing. The Satin Dollz act is appropriate for all ages and types of events and depending on the type of event, an audience member or guest of honor may find themselves as part of the act on stage either serenaded by a bevy of beauties singing and playing their ukuleles or being fought over in the 1930s song "I Want to Be Loved By You."
Clients can expect a professional experience with the Satin Dollz management company, Dollface Entertainment, from all aspects including contract negotiation, travel arrangements (if necessary), tailoring the act specific to the event's needs, coordinating live band if also hired, organizing from start to finish the Dollz arrival, show, and conclusion.
From all corners of the United States, our lovely Satin Dollz were brought together on one stage in 2005 to deliver top-notch entertainment reminiscent of the WWII USO Camp Shows from 1941-1947. Since then, their unique combination of varied talents have charmed audiences young and old, stateside and overseas, with their crowd-pleasing tap dance numbers,blended harmonies, stunning beauty, and notably sweet dispositions.
Shows range from 20 minute sets up to 90 minute sets and can be tailored to your event's timeline. For instance, the Dollz can perform a few numbers at a time throughout the event or in larger chunks of time during a meal or after dessert etc. Their manager willl work with you to customize a show just right for your event.
Rates vary depending on time, location and whether you prefer using a live band to back up the Dollz act (band can also play during cocktail hour and/or dinner etc).
Other themes Satin Dollz perform in addition to the 1940s USO theme include: 1920s Speakeasy, Havana Nights, Western Vintage, Tiki, sultry Jazz and Flirty French (includes the Can Can dance), and Vegas showgirl theme.
The Satin Dollz are also available for Ukulele-grams (within the Southern California area).
Additional Booking Notes
