Peaches and Crime
Peaches and Crime
The dancehall doors fly open! The lights dim! An audience leans forward, on the edge of their seats, for the new vaudeville sensation, the vagabond cabaret! Break out the hooch and don't call the cops - it's Peaches and Crime!

Flying like barnstormers out of Binghamton NY, Peaches and Crime delivers original music in classic American styles - blues, swing, rockabilly, nothing is off-limits! To those irresistible melodies are married a cavalier, modern sensibility that dares to laugh at tragedy and sneer at propriety. Few groups can wring comedy from murder ballads, and none can do so as deftly! Tap your toes to "Never Be a Good Girl" that describes the fate of the Triangle Fire girls, or jitterbug to our mantra "The Monstrous Deeds Rag" or be seduced by the Black Widow charms of "Mrs. Colt Revolver
Whiskey Tango Sideshow
Whiskey Tango Sideshow
Whiskey Tango arose one serendipitous evening in 2009 when the winds whispered ‘Side…Show…!’ across the flickering embers of some dance-school drop outs. From there the spark ignited and the Whiskey Tango Sideshow fire burns bright bringing together dancers, singers, musicians, costumers and performers of all varieties.

These days, you can find the devilish dames of Whiskey Tango performing monthly in and around the Finger lakes New Yorkas well as touring nation-wide and producing the Annual Empire Burlesque festival live at the Hangar Theatre in Ithaca NY.

Our studio in Trumansburg, NY is one of our favorite places to be…but we are ready to pack up the chickens and hit the road! Every act is an original creation to dazzle the senses and tickle the soul. So remember…everyone is lavishly wealthy when the Whiskey Tango Sideshow is in town! Make sure to mend that hole in your pocket…this is one ticket you don’t wanna lose!
The Sugar Lumps
The Sugar Lumps
The Sugarlumps revive the music of the 1920's, 30's and 40's Speakeasy Culture. Their shows are filled with cheeky humor and their songs tell stories of love and loss, lust and heartache, murder and redemption and of course, drinkin' and cheatin'.

The Sugarlumps are a three-piece band consisting of Front-Man Esther Brooke on vocals, guitar virtuoso, Bryan J. Flood and Master of the Low End, Trevor Findley on stand-up bass. They are are known for pushing boundaries but they always remain delightfully quirky and highly danceable.

They play a blend of Viper Jazz, Country Blues and Swing influenced by Bessie Smith, Memphis Minnie, Fats Waller, Lightnin' Hopkins and The Mississippi Sheiks among others. Their music reflects the tastes of prohibition-era Americans who frequented Speakeasys to quench their thirst and do what they pleased under the radar of polite society.
