Frenchy & the Punk return to Cincinnati!

Frenchy & the Punk‘s show is a carnival of two that will take you from the Moulin Rouge to CBGBs and back again. A rollicking flapper folk punk steampunk cabaret with Taiko meets Rio de Janeiro pounding drum instrumentals.

Frenchy and the Punk Stage

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, folky, Steam 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!

On Saturday, May 7th, 2016, they will be playing at the Cincinnati Steampunk Salon.

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, and Frenchy and the Punk was born.

Along the way they became the ‘jewel of the steampunk scene’ and were named one of the ”Top 25 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.

The duo’s music, magnetic stage presence, charm and exhilarating performances have attracted a consistently growing and loyal fan base around the world. The most recent CD, Bonjour Batfrog, (August 2014) for which they toured both in the US and Europe. Check out their earlier releases, the gypsy-tinged Cartwheels EP (2014), the Taiko meets Rio drumming and exhilarating guitar of the Elephant Uproar CD (2013), the frenzied fun of the Hey Hey Cabaret CD (2012), and their break through 2010 CD release, Happy Madness.
