The Roustabouts Collective offer a musical cabaret experience that will amuse, bemuse and amaze. Performing a theatrical mixture of Gypsy, Balkan, folk, dance and swing influenced original songs and arrangements.
Expect rich harmonies, fast paced strumming, groovy bass lines, banging beats, virtuosic fiddle work, knees-up squeezebox merriment, a bombastic trombone, hair raising electric solos and a big slice of circus to top it all off. The group are fully insured, trained and equipped to undertake live music, fire manipulation and circus arts performance.
