Frenchy and the Punk:
Multi-cultural Genre-bending NY Duo Frenchy and the Punk: Imagine Siouxsie Sioux and Dee Dee Ramone had a duo that was inspired by Django Reinhardt, Edith Piaf, Toulouse Lautrec and Deepak Chopra, this is what it might sound like. One part Dresden Dolls, Sonny and Cher and one part White Stripes. A pixie spirited flexitarian band of tree hugging, gothic, folk punks by way of Paris and New York. Doused in red wine, kale and granola, raised on punk rock and ballet, eclectic and uplifting…fun with a capital F!

The product of a 1998 office romance, the two left their temp jobs, traveled as a solo musician (him) and artist (her) selling their wares until 2005 when, Stephenson, the sultry French born singer jumped onstage and joined, Helland, the fiery punk rock guitarist from the golden days of the hardcore scene (Deep Wound/Outpatients — Western, MA), and Frenchy and the Punk was born. Along the way they were embraced by the Cabaret, Steampunk and Faerie Festival scenes and were named one of the ''Top 25 dynamic duos in America' by Yahoo music.

The unlikely pairing has since released 6 full-length CDs, produced a live concert DVD and have performed all across the U.S. and in Europe. Their show is a carnival of two that will take you from the Moulin Rouge to CBGBs and back again. A rollicking flapper folk punk cabaret with Taiko meets Rio de Janeiro pounding drum instrumentals.

Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band:
Spreading their gospel of spontaneous creativity and rampant self-expression, ENSMB brings a passion and playfulness to the stage that challenges audiences to not just sit and watch the world around them, but instead rise up and join the show of life, in all its wondrous variety. With their festive and frolicking vibe, you better believe that ENSMB will have you not just dancing, but oohing and aahing over the musical feats you'll witness, and maybe even wishing that you too could run away and join the circus.
ENSMB has performed at events ranging from HONK! Fest (both in Somerville MA and Seattle WA) to the Salem Jazz & Soul Festival and the Steampunk World’s Fair. They often can be found collaborating with the Boston Circus Guild, as well as frequently sharing bills with a tight nit group of bands from the robust Boston music scene. 2011 will see the band performing at venues all across the Boston area, including Johnny D’s, Middle East Downstairs, Church, Lizard Lounge and Club Passim, traveling to New York City and Austin, TX, as well as performing at Steampunk events all over the Northeast.
