Frenchy and the Punk

Frenchy and the Punk

Multi-cultural genre-bending NY-based Duo Frenchy and the Punk is a “unique two-person folk punk cabaret powerhouse.” Their show is a carnival of two that will take you from the Moulin Rouge to CBGBs and back again. 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. A rollicking flapper folk punk steampunk cabaret with Taiko meets Rio de Janeiro pounding drum instrumentals. The duo is made up of bilingual French-born dancer/artist turned singer and percussionist Samantha Stephenson and guitarist Scott Helland who was a founding member of the legendary hardcore punk band Deep Wound with Dinosaur Jr’s J Mascis. Touring across the US and Europe since 2005, this fiery duo bring their danceable, creative, eclectic foot stomper of a show to Wicked Faire 2018.

Three Pints Shy Song & Improv

Three Pints Shy Song & Improv

THREE PINTS SHY was founded in 2003 and since then has evolved into a raucous pub band, updating and reinvigorating the Celtic music scene that is much beloved all around the world. Stemming from the traditions of Tommy Makem and The Clancy Brothers, THREE PINTS SHY first appeared on stage at the New York Renaissance Festival in Tuxedo, NY.

Preferring the enjoyment of both music and drinking, the group is heavily influenced by Irish drinking songs. THREE PINTS SHY performs with a high-energy style, creating an appeal to a younger, more fanatical audience whose reaction grows stronger with every song. But they are not beyond the touching ballads of the Emerald Isle, enamoring fans with their gentle harmonies.

Their first CD, “Waking the Dead,” is made to capture their live performance vigor. Each song is a dynamic and fun affair, performed as if tailor made for the pubs of Dublin. “Waking the Dead” is now in its 5th printing.

“Another Long Dangerous Year” their second offering, brings the band’s manic pace and frenetic style to the forefront. It also debuts their original Irish songs.

Their most recent release, “The Burlap Album,” sold its entire print run the weekend it debuted. The band’s penchant for high energy and tight vocal harmonies continue to shine in both the traditional and original songs included on this recording.

THREE PINTS SHY is David Anthony, songwriter, penny whistle player and vocalist; Jonathan Siregar, songwriter, percussionist and vocalist; Robbie Taylor, guitarist and vocalist and David Mikofsky, guitarist and vocalist. Each of the members of THREE PINTS SHY has come from a professional performing background, and are trained in different facets of the performance arts. In addition to being trained musicians, they are also skilled improvisational artists, with a casual rapport that is infectious to the audiences they have entertained throughout the years.

THREE PINTS SHY is, arguably, the greatest non-Irish, Irish band the world has ever seen.

Platform One

Platform One

Platform One is not your mother’s pop music. 80s sensibilities and lyrics you won’t forget will keep you up and out of your seat from the first driving beat to the last.

Electronic Dark pop. Danceable music and tons of energy. It’s everything 80s without being from 1980. Can’t travel in time… come see our show! Some goth is to be expected.
