Itchy Feet Pep Band
Roving Minstrel available for hire, based in Victoria
The Itchy Feet Pep Band is Australia's favourite comic marching band, having featured at festivals, parades and tattoos in locations around Australia and overseas, including Sydney, Adelaide, Perth, and throughout Asia. The Pep Band has provided entertainment for audiences of all ages at cultural festivals, private and corporate functions, flower, art and agricultural shows, children’s events, regional festivals, and major city celebrations. The band has also represented Australia three times at the Hong Kong Chinese New Year Festival, most recently in 2008. Roving shows are an exciting way to attract a crowd. If you need to move people around a venue, the Itchy Feet Pep Band is the ideal group to lead the way. Upon arrival of guests at their destination, we can cap off the performance with a static, theatrical routine. With roots stretching back to the dawn of the marching band, the Itchy Feet Pep Band is ideal for any type of street parade, be it a regional festival or a public celebration. And just when you think you've seen it all, Itchy Feet will break into all kinds of mayhem while the Musical Director tries desperately to regain some form of order.
Based on a typical Americal college 'pep band', the Itchy Feet Pep Band ranges in size from ten to fifteen brass players and percussionists. Led by their pompous prancing posing Drum Major, their performance are anything but typical! Our line-up can be augmented with three roving kangaroos, as well as dancers, such as we had at the 2008 Hong Kong, Chinese New Year parade.
