Moustachioed Musical Maestro
Alluring Artistic Aesthete
The Roustabouts make for a distinctly dapper duet with a hands-on performance behind their custom DJ decks and visuals.
The Roustabouts are the promoters behind numerous ambitious events from explosive one-off shows to inventive weekly nights.
This international act of devilish dandies share a penchant for the decadent and diverse. Their eclectic collection allows them to craft unique genre-spanning creations.
One night they might be bestowing sounds from bygone eras and exotic lands with a razor sharp modern twist and the next serving a rich banquet of familiar guilty pleasures mashed together as you've never heard them before.
You might have caught sight of The Roustabouts carrying out their uncanny craft at prestigious events across Europe including:
The Box, Ministry of Sound, Kucukciftlik Park (Istanbul) Soho House, Hospital Club, Cafe De Paris, Egg London, Scala, Micca Club (Rome), Adler Planetarium (Chicago), V&A Museum, Swan Shakespeare's Globe, The Southbank Centre, The Black Cat Cabaret, Torture Garden (London & Vienna), Circus, White Mischief, Sublime Boudoir (Amsterdam) and Bestival
They created THE BURNING BEAT, a weekly circus cabaret nightclub drenched in old world exoticism and spread across four floors of decadent decor. GQ Magazine recommended The Burning Beat as one of the best small venue entertainment nights in London.
They were then approached to devise a flagship night for the iconic Centre Point building. THE KATZENJAMMER CLUB was created. Inspired by the likes of David Bowie, Klaus Nomi and Leigh Bowery, it took the zeitgeist of the Post-Punk and New Romantic era and applied an ultra-modern spin. It featured world class performers from the avant-garde & cabaret/circus world, fashion shows from upcoming designers and an inventive bespoke projection installation. It was awarded the TIME OUT Critic's Choice for it's weekly run.
The Roustabouts now primarily consult and assist with events they perform at and can organise additional performers, visuals and other elements.
Mark Charade is a filmmaker often filming and editing inventive and high quality music videos and promo pieces for events showreels for performers. He has also created visual installations for events for clients such as Shakespeare's Globe.
We also provide Music Consultation. Using our in-depth knowledge of numerous genres and musical trends we can compile ideal song selections and bespoke playlists for any need.
The Roustabouts can provide a variety of accompanying visuals for use on displays and projectors
Depending on the project we can use our gear to project an image over 120 inches wide and transform a space into a vintage peepshow or an immersive abstract arena
We have also designed our own sound reactive LED lighting rig that is flexible enough to be installed in almost any space
