BIOGRAPHY

“The goal of Punch Drunk Cabaret is to make every show an event”, declares founding frontman, Randal X Bailer. “And for that to happen, the audience has to be part of the show.” Which explains why every performance is peppered with spirited sing-a-longs and invites to turn the isles into dance floors. The result has been an ever-growing following that not only reflects the band’s stylish fashion sense, but is willing to drive hours to take part in the show. It’s that dedication to showmanship that’s secured Punch Drunk Cabaret many a festival mainstage appearance, often closing out the night due to the unmatched energy of their live set.

Fronted by Randal X Bailer who channels the theatricality of David Bowie and the guitar bravado of Stray Cats, Brian Setzer, it’s no surprise the Punch Drunk Cabaret sound is a potent cocktail of high energy rockabilly swing, burlesque blues, and anthemic 80’s inspired alt-rock. The trio is rounded out Teddy Twotone Roy who plays both electric and stand-up bass, and new recruit, keyboardist/ percussionist, Rob Robot Ducharme. 

Although considering themselves a “live act first”, Punch Drunk Cabaret has steadily been accumulating awards and nominations for their recordings and music videos. They are the first-ever Alberta act to win both an Edmonton and Calgary Music Award. Even amidst the pandemic shutdown of live events, the band still managed to clinch a pair of international awards for Best Soundtrack following their contributions to the indie flick, Boneyard Racers.
