About The Black Sheikhs

Party band
The Black Sheikhs perform wonderful swing jazz arrangements of pop and rock classics.

Vintage reprobates and genre alchemists, the Black Sheikhs fire heady concoctions of punk, pop, rock and swing, steaming into the 21st century. Lord Acton and his band of virtuosos take the popular songs of today, and dress them up in the snazzy rags of the jazz era. Mötorhead, Beyoncé, Swift and Sheeran, injected with a hefty dose of swing and savour faire. From Glastonbury to the Palace of Westminster, they’ve set the stage on fire with boundless energy and brazen bon humour. From pub gigs to arenas, weddings to wakes, the Sheikhs have done it in style.
