Punch Drunk Cabaret
Punch Drunk Cabaret
Punch Drunk Cabaret mixes rockabilly, roots, and swing into a high energy cocktail made up of rousing, sing-a-long choruses and dance floor packing rhythms. With six years of club, festival and special event performances under its belt, the band has earned a reputation for a “must-see” live show that’s equal parts audience participation and rock and roll spectacle.

With their unmistakable steampunk inspired look, Punch Drunk Cabaret features a rhythm section like no other, complete with stand up drummer, Sean E Watts and 12 string bassist Terry Sawbones Grant. Add to that Randy Bailer’s gravel-throated vocals and reverberating baritone guitar and you have a sound and style that’s truly all its own.

The band’s set list features a winning mix of originals you swear you’ve heard before and cover songs like you’ve never heard before, including 80’s hits such as Hot for Teacher and Sweet Dreams (are made of this) radically rearranged as 40’s styled, guitar driven swing. The result is a formula that resonates with an incredibly wide range of music fans, encompassing roots, blues, rock and country.

Released in the spring of 2016, Punch Drunk Cabaret’s third album, Electrik Steam Show bristles with whiskey- soaked melodies poured over bristling bump n’ grind beats, all under the direction of Juno award winning producer/ engineer Ross Nykiforuk (Sheepdogs/ Northern Pikes). Strictly focusing on live dates throughout the year, Punch Drunk Cabaret continues to prove they are a one-of-a-kind act on the rise.

Lilith Fair as Dr. Frank N. Furter
"Lilith Fair is a comedienne, actress, and singer. She is also the co-creator of the House of HOMO-CIDAL: Edmonton's foremost punk rock, comedy drag house (which now operates out of the Garneau Theatre)! She has been active in the community for going on three years, and in that time has won "Best Local Comedian" TWICE in Vue Weekly's "Best of Edmonton Awards". She is also the recipient of NINE Stiletto Award nominations in total (recognizing excellence in Edmonton drag). She frequently tours the province, and can be seen most regularly at Evolution Wonderlounge (in Edmonton), and Twisted Element (in Calgary); but she has also performed in other major cities, such as Vancouver, Montreal, and Toronto."
