The roaring ‘20s are back!! Stilt Sheikhs are a five-piece parade band pumping out modern hits in a 1920s style… on Stilts!

Stilt Sheikhs are a 5 piece band playing classic pop tunes but all arranged in a 1920's musical style. The band consists of two performers on stilts playing drums, bajo and vocals along with Sousaphone, Clarinet and Saxophone. The Stilt Sheikhs specialise in parade and roaming style events.....and of course anything '20's style! So, if's it's a parade, roaming party, themed event, garden party or just an appreciation of great music, then we're your band. We formed in 2016 and have been playing events all across the UK since then.

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

no.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

“We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.”

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

“Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £130.”

How much time do you need to set up?

When we perform as an all acoustic act, without p.a. we only need 30mins to get changed and ready. If we are to use the full p.a. set up, then about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

Can you roam around while you perform?

“Yes - this is our speciality. We either perform acoustically or with microphones attached to our instruments so we can move around freely.”

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

“Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event. ”

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

“Our PA and lighting system is included in your quote. Of course, you may not require it depending on the type of performance you book with us. We usually require a minimum of 4m by 3m space to perform if it's a stage area event”

Can you learn song requests before the event?

“If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £50 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc. ”

“The band were outstanding last night. Your 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. 5***** performance!”

The Stilt Sheikhs 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 Sheikhs stood out walking on stilts and playing vintage jazz tunes – they looked and sounded fantastic. The Stilt Sheikhs 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.
