The Casablanca Steps

The Casablanca Steps

Jazz Band

One of the most experienced and established 1920s / 30s musical acts in the UK, The Casablanca Steps are four individual and talented performers unequalled in their field who recreate the authentic musical ambience of the 1920s and 30s when the “Charleston” was all the rage and the swells were “Putting On The Ritz”.

INTRODUCING OUR FLAPPER GIRLS

At one of our recent splendid events, we happened upon some rather naughty, flirtatious flapper girls, who showed great interest in ‘doing something’ with The Casablanca Steps. Now this was not an offer to be taken light-heartedly. So, being the most respectful, clean living and charming gentlemen that we are, proud of our resolute resistance to the allure of devilish temptresses, we unanimously decided – after seconds of deliberating – that we could not possibly deprive our adoring public of such a display of sizzling energy and irresistible beauty. Therefore, we are proud to announce that these young ladies can now be hired as an extra special addition to our show. They can be hired as two flappers (exquisitely entertaining) or as many as 6 flappers (not for the faint hearted).

Profile

Their performance is of the highest standard with over 40 TV shows throughout the UK and Europe to their credit. On the back of their recent appearance on the One Show for the BBC they were asked to perform one of their songs in the second season of the ITV drama ‘Home Fires’, which was broadcast in Spring 2016. They have entertained in festivals, theatres, corporate events and private parties worldwide with great acclaim, and have more recently entertained on some of the worlds finest cruise ships including the legendary QE2. Their more recent maritime experience was entertaining for the launch of the new Queen Elizabeth in the presence of HRH the Queen. It is not the first time they have rubbed shoulders with celebrities and Royalty, them being personal favourites of Prince Philip after their performance for him at St James Palace, and performing with French & Saunders and Mark Owen from Take That on The Kelly Show and The Late Late Show in Ireland

Their totally unique sound and authentic three part vocal harmonies, combined with a quintessentially English visual element of serious “tongue in cheek” humour make their show a unique experience for all ages, and their ability to break down the arts barriers with their outstanding performance always leaves their audience begging for more.

Indulge in an evening with Wooten, Clarke, Archie and Pico – four great performers who really know how to entertain.
