Alice Strange

“Blessed with the natural stage presence of Siouxsie Sioux, the vocal command of Björk and the dark phrasing of Concrete Blonde’s Johnette Napolitano, [Alice] is a rare and singular talent.” LOUDERTHANWAR

Formerly Alice’s Night Circus, Alice Strange is classically trained and started her journey in classical music before venturing into her own style of music which encompasses influences from a wide range of musical genres and literature. She now performs her own original songs.

Victor and the Bully

“Victor & The Bully have smashed onto the British steampunk scene in the last few years with a raucous live show and an album so tight it hangs teabags on the washing line.” Steampunk Journal

They use a ‘carnival blend’ of live ukulele and acoustic guitar with a twist of orchestral instruments to provide a very theatrical and cabaret-like sound. Inspired by steampunk, swing, mariachi, classical, electro-swing and punk to bring a very different vibe.
