Vintage reprobates and genre alchemists, the Black Sheikhs fire heady concoctions of punk, pop, rock and swing, steaming into the 21st century.
"The Black Sheikhs stand out amongst a number of bands who re-imagine contemporary pop music in a jazz idiom; many try, but few achieve it with the charm, aplomb, humour and outstanding musicianship of the Black Sheikhs." Barney Stevenson, Marsden Jazz Festival
"What an absolutely staggering performance. Perfect. Amazing."
"..stunning!! Truly inspired. I'm now an avid fan!!"
"A gateway drug to jazz."
Striking out with hotsy-totsy, modern vigour, they elegantly escort carnivals of wild, youthful creatures into the decade of excess and innovation. Their contagious zeal bewitches even the most unwilling wallflower, rekindling the spirit of the Ritz and champagne fizz of the flappers. An esteemed musical fraternity, they proffer the hottest modern hits with precision and humour, ushering in 20s style with gentrified contemporary pop. Towering above the dance hall assembly, celebrity socialite Lord Acton and his roaring band, Black Sheikhs, exemplify the eccentricity and sparkle of 1920s British style and rhythm.
Witness the vim and zest of the Black Sheikhs in these live action, full colour films!
Don’t forget, ladies and gentlemen, that when you book the Black Sheikhs you can request, for a meagre sum, that they render a song of your choosing into their repertoire. Quality control is of the highest standard and we can safely say…
SATISFACTION OR YOU CAN PUNCH THE CLARINETIST IN THE NOSE!
