Also part of the Giggle Gang is the Silly Saxtet, that parade onto the circus grounds with their own unique twist on circus music standards.

Inspired by everything from Walt Disney's “Dumbo” to the music of Spike Jones, the Storybook Circus Giggle Gang also has its roots in the classic traditions of The Greatest Show on Earth. Several members of the ensemble are graduates of the famed Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College.
