The Black Sheikhs – what can we say? Their eclectic style almost defies words. You really do have to see this band to believe them, they are, without doubt, incomparable.
This act takes 1920’s vintage jazz played at its best and mixes it up with the melodies and lyrics of today’s music, the result is comedic and delightful entertainment. We can almost guarantee you haven’t seen a performance like this one before!
Classic 1920’s instruments are played by talented live musicians in an authentic jazz style, but the lyrics and music are from other decades entirely; Abba, Beyonce, Arctic Monkeys, Prince or Taylor Swift – modern music played by a 20’s jazz band, in their unique, tongue in cheek manner. You’ve never heard Baggy Trousers by Madness played like this 5 piece live band do it. It’s a brilliant idea performed with great skill and amusement. They are a joyful addition to any 1920’s or Great Gatsby Themed Event, they really will add a twist to your entertainment!
The group are currently working on a brand new show that includes tap dancers, 1920’s stage props and traditional backdrops. This performance is ideal for larger venues and theatres, it re-enacts a roaring 20’s party with plenty of audience participation, dancing and general hilarity.
The Black Sheikhs are from West Yorkshire and are available for bookings locally, nationally and internationally. If you are looking to hire a band that will give you live entertainment with a twist, then this band is for you.

"Without a horned gramophone in sight, this five piece were soon delivering today’s music in roaring twenties fashion. Abba’s Dancing Queen was performed in a tango tempo, turning a seventies disco anthem into a ripping musical yarn! Enough said!"

"The Blacksheiks 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 Sheiks stood out walking on stilts and playing vintage jazz tunes – they looked and sounded fantastic.The Sheiks really impressed our judges and walked away with two rosettes on the day. Hazel Grove Carnival want to see them back for this years 2020 parade."
