Q. Why is the SkiBand the Best Street Band in the World?
A. All the players are consummate professionals: musicians with a wealth of experience in live performance and entertainment.
Way back in the mists of time, before Facebook, Justin Bieber’s Career and the Euro, two storming festival bands came together.
The BRASSHOPPERS and THE REAL MACAWS were the origins of the SKIBAND. They were the apes ski party in Alpine Ski Resorts. At this altitude the air was thin and the beats were thick and the SKIBAND found that they had something special.
One of the true strengths of the band is there adaptability. At very short notice they can be helicoptered in (usually in a van) to entertain your audience and make your event something to be talked, tweeted and commented about.
Over the years the SKIBAND have contributed to a variety of other projects such as SKAVALUTION, THE LAST CHANCE SALOON BAND, THE PEACE ARTISTES, BECKS & THE BULLETS and LITTLE CHIEF, and many more.
The SKIBAND are just the tip of a musical iceberg that spans two decades, and shows no sign of stopping.
Over the years the SKIBAND have worn many costumes, and they can bring a bespoke look to meet your needs.

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.
