Zombie Burlesque And The Voodoo Circus Swampfest

    Islington, London
   Dance Bands
RANK #1958
Described as 'Cab Calloway on Absinthe' and 'Tom Waits has gone to hell and formed a voodoo band', if you're looking for something fun and definitely a little off the wall this is the band for your event! Perfect for horror themed nights or for a touch of the darker side of New Orleans.

Bio A raggle, taggle seven to fourteen piece band in a world of Zombie Burlesque and Voodoo Circus… Emerging from the dark depths of the sewers of London, Rattlin Bone walk that darker path… Wily Bo Walker, former frontman and songsmith supremo with Glasgow's self-styled supergroup The Heartbeats, now continues his wild frontman swagger as Ringmaster of the madcap burlesque voodoo circus that is Rattlin Bone.… Joining him is demon trombone player L'il Neill, a nightcrawling desperado and an artist with a deviant palette. He fronts the bone section from hell… Kareña Kelly adds her 'Vampirettes'; a wicked sideshow and backing vocals with bite!!!

For larger scale venues and festivals our line up can also include clowns and fire eaters, (where permissible), in the show.
