A Modern Revival of the 1920s…
Like we mentioned before, this act takes jazz played at its best and mixes it up with the melodies and lyrics of today’s music, the result is comedic and delightful entertainment. Classic 1920s instruments are played by talented live musicians in an authentic jazz style, but the lyrics and music are from other decades entirely; Abba, Beyonce, Arctic Monkeys, Prince or Taylor Swift – modern music played by a 20s jazz band, in their unique, tongue in cheek manner!
‘The Black Sheihks were invited to play through the Hazel Grove Carnival parade in 2019 – what an amazing act, we have never had so many positive comments about our parade. The Sheiks stood out walking on stilts and playing vintage jazz tunes – they looked and sounded fantastic. The Sheiks really impressed our judges and walked away with two rosettes on the day. Hazel Grove Carnival want to see them back for this year 2020 parade’

‘We booked the Stilt Sheikhs for our local carnival and from the first point of contact they were friendly, efficient and helpful. During the day the team went above and beyond our expectation, playing additional sets around the town centre. The feedback we had from the community was so good it meant that we’ve booked them again for this year’s carnival!’
‘The Stilt Sheikhs were a fabulously addition to the Citadel’s in the street festival and really animated the town centre wowing audiences’

‘The band were outstanding last night. The walk around set really got the party started. I’ve never been to an event where the dance floor was full for the whole night. Please pass on my appreciation to the band. It’s a stellar 5*performance!’

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.

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.
