Top Bananas is a group of stilt-walking musicians who have brought all of their experience in performing as part of other companies (Rumpel Stilt’s Kin, Neighbourhood Watch, Poles Apart, Stomp!) into their own stilt walking band.
The Top Bananas play music on stilts and are based in Brighton , England. This band on stilts features an oil-can guitar, harmony vocals, a horn section, and a rhythm section. The band is all about fun and plays a selection of Jazz, Funk, Disco and Ska classics. Bespoke themes and costumes possible with enough notice!
Perfect for indoor and outdoor events (weather permitting), Top Bananas are electro acoustic and don’t need PA equipment, so can play anywhere you want!

“Thank you SO much for yesterday – you were fantastic! Really looking forward to seeing you again.”
– UKTV (re: London event)
“Thanks for being a part of people’s day, it was great having you tall guys wandering around playing your tunes, really added to the feel of the day!”
– Brighton & Hove Council
“They are absolutely brilliant and I recommend them highly! We held a multicultural celebration in Hove Town Hall with over 3 and a half thousand people visiting throughout the day. Our performers were a very diverse group from many cultural backgrounds and there were children and families taking part too. The Mayor opened the event and it was also attended by Councillors and MPs.
We were somewhat constricted by budget and so I asked Jim to play as part of a duo ( I believe they are usually a five piece). They were exceptionally professional, performed three half hour slots and stayed all day to do this. They performed in the foyer and later when we had a mix up of times up on the main stage they went upstairs and did an impromptu set up there too. They were a real hit and very easy going on what was a hectic day. I cannot recommend them enough.”
– Brighton & Hove Council
“Everyone I spoke to said both that the band was just the perfect choice for the party and thoroughly enjoyed the performances. I will certainly recommend the band for other events. Thanks to you and all members of the band for helping to make the event so memorable.”

“You pitched the music perfectly and created just the right atmosphere for the event. The Top Bananas are mentioned a lot on the feedback forms we’ve received with people saying you were a highlight of the day. On top of that, I was grateful that you all just ‘got on with it’ whilst I ran around dealing with car parks and three legged races!”
– Rochford Council, Essex
Megan Chungh – Park Hotel, Newcastle
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!
Amy Casey – Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
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.
