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.
This London-based 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 and America including:
Burlesque Hall of Fame (Las Vegas), Adler Planetarium (Chicago) The Box, Ministry of Sound (London), Kucukciftlik Park (Istanbul) Soho House, Hospital Club, Cafe De Paris, Egg London, Scala, Micca Club (Rome), 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
For smaller engagements Mark Charade may be available to perform solo
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
For larger scale event we can even create bespoke visuals for your event. See creative team for more details.
