BIOGRAPHY

 

Punch Drunk Cabaret is an award winning, festival favourite that combines an inventive blend of rockabilly, blues-rock, and swing, resulting in an engaging, high energy live show of rousing, singalong choruses and dance floor packing rhythms that never fails to make the audience part of the show.  

 

Featuring a rhythm section like no other, the trio is made up of stand-up drummer, Sean E. Watts, and bassist, Twotone Teddy Roy who doubles on both electric and upright bass. Fronted by Bandmeister Randy B’s gravel-throated vocals and howling Gretsch guitar, audiences are left feeling like they've witnessed an amalgam of Stray Cats, Green Day, and Tom Waits all on the same bill.  

 

Punch Drunk Cabaret'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 Sweet Dreams (are made of this) radically reinvented as 30’s styled, guitar driven swing. The result is a sound and style that resonates with an incredibly wide range of music fans, as evidenced by their appearances at Roots, Blues, Rock, Folk and Jazz festivals as well as sharing stages with artists as diverse as Trooper, Sheepdogs, July Talk, and Hawksley Workman.

 

Most recently, the trio was selected from hundreds of acts to appear on the upcoming television series, The Moment: Season 1 set for broadcast across Canada and the US this fall. The band is currently supporting its fourth album, THIS IS A DISTURBANCE, proving once again that Punch Drunk Cabaret is a one-of-a-kind act on the rise.
