Bands with dancers (or other non-musicians) as members

I just got back from seeing the Mighty Mighty Bosstones and saw their dancer Ben Carr do his thing. He was constantly moving. I swear, if I had to do that night after night I'd probably collapse.

But it got me to thinking about bands that have dancers and other non-musicians as official members. Here are the ones that I came up with:

With a dancer:
The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
The Prodigy
Happy Mondays

With "other":
Arrested Development (had that old guy)
Public Enemy (clear the way for the S1Ws)
A Tribe Called Quest (Jarobi - not sure what he did)

Can anybody think of any others?

MC Hammer had that pointy-haired guy, but he may have done some occasional rapping. Oh, and he also had about 500 dancers. Hmm, I wonder why he ran out of money...

GWAR has that chick who plays with fire, and I'm sure there are quite a few other members too that don't do much.

And, by extension, Black Grape.

Yeah, that old guy in arrested development had quite a job. Just shuffle around, wave your arms a little, and wear a dress.

Wonder how much they paid him.

How about Dee-Lite?

I know that the chick who looked like Peg Bundy sang, but did the Russian looking guy and the goofy-looking Japanese guy do anything?

Supa DJ Dmitry and Jungle DJ Towa Towa were, as their names suggest, DJs. The vocalist was Lady Miss Kier.

Hawkwind had the delightful Stacia dancing with them, frequently topless, which was a bonus. She was rather, er, "well-built" if memory serves.

Avail (Richmond band) has some red-headed/bearded, skinny, tattooed guy that runs around the stage while they play.

They all do something, but usually not musical : )
Slymenstra.
And Sleazy P. Martini, their manager [he has one song, and one spoken-word, in addition to usually hosting/MC'ing the shows.]
And the Sexecutioner, though he does have two songs from six albums, IIRC. Plus all the slaves and victims....Man, I need to go to a GWAR show ; )
