Ahoy There Me Hearties!
Don’t want your event to sink? Then hire Sea Shanty Band and the Old Time Sailor Crew so you can become a Sailor for one epic night!
Captivating hearts in every port, Sea Shanty band’s flash mob musical show is designed to take the audience back in time through an unforgettable trip onboard a 19th century Ship!
The crew is composed of 17 musicians playing fully unplugged to ensure the most authentic experience. The band offer a 3 hour show including intermissions to relax and have dinner with friends and family. It’s a full production Ocean experience that is perfect for Sea Themed Events!
Over 30 songs and tunes that the audience is guaranteed to sing and dance along to, surrounded by drunken Sailors! Witness an astounding show unmatched in this music genre.
Everything will take place within a magnificent stage set of whiskey barrels, beer barrels, fishing nets and wooden trunks – all designed to give the audience the sensation of being inside an actual 19th century vessel.
The audience is invited to receive a copy of the Sunday Sailor (in exchange for coin!), which includes lyrics to all of Sea Shanty band’s songs! So, you can sing along and become a Sailor for one epic night!
These Sailors have travelled the Seven Seas and experienced all kinds of adventures and scenarios, performing unplugged, all over the world; their show is therefore very flexible and can adapt to any circumstance and space.
The Crew is fairly large, with 17 brave Sailors, with a no-man-left-behind policy.
Merchandise will be available on the night, including antique playing cards, sailors hats, tattoos, stickers, T Shorts and custom-made USB album (shaped like an anchor!).
Please bear in mind that booking just one show means you will have 17 brave sailors at the event during 3 to 4 hours awaiting orders on where and how you wish them to perform. This can be:
Traditional Stage Performance
Pop-Up Flashmob Performance
The entire show is composed of 3 sets, each one lasting on average 1 hour, and they usually need to rest during 15 min between each set (it’s a high energy show!).
The Sea Shanty Band is partially self-contained, meaning they do bring some PA with them, mainly for lead voices and strings, and in general their “unplugged” volume is loud enough for between 250-300 people. For larger ships (and audiences!) they will require additional PA. They do not bring lights as their show is not reliant upon lights, other than warm, ambient lighting in the room if it’s an indoors show.
There’s nothing like the Sea Shanty Band in the entire world! You will never be disappointed by this extraordinary crew. These sailors are of a rare kind, with a uniqueness that allows them to turn any setting into an unforgettable party inside a ship.

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.
George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
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.
