Hellzapoppin- A Sideshow Revue
THE SIDESHOW ART IS LIKE LIFE ON BOARD A PIRATE SHIP
These performers are outsiders; Artistic children that never grew up. They're true vagabonds, hearts filled with wanderlust. They travel upon a modern day pirate ship AKA The Big Red Prison Bus. That ship is steered by the hopes and dreams of artists willing to put themselves through whatever it takes to find that spotlight that is their home.
They prefer meals cooked over an open fire under the stars while the sounds of an accordion, a wash board and spoons playing in the background. A dog is barking, bursts of hearty laughter fill the air after a 100 year long day of hard work. The workday is faced head on, and usually involves more turmoil than any mere mortal would take on in a lifetime. They get through it unscathed just in time to take that final bow from the 10,000th performance, whether it’s for 4 or 4000 fans.
YOUR APPLAUSE IS THE SUSTENANCE THEY THRIVE ON
It’s a lifestyle understood by only a select few. A hundreds-of-years old tradition, a heritage carried on by modern day minstrels and mountebanks that understand an artistic outlook that is the ground zero of REAL show business and everything it represents. They put everything on the line, willing to die for their art if necessary.
HELLZAPOPPIN, A Sideshow Revue combines the style of the classic era side shows with modern day edginess and finesse and features the best performers and attractions from the best shows from around the world! This thrill packed stunt show features genuine human oddities, sword swallowing, the human block head, fire eating, bed of nails, the blade box , western bullwhip demonstrations, contortionists, and electrical death defying stunts.
HELLZAPOPPIN, A SideShow Revue is a massive hit with audiences around the world. It is true popular entertainment, thrilling the most jaded rock festival attendee while at the same time touching a chord in the hearts of circus & music fans, historians, and art enthusiasts everywhere. These Stunts are performed by mere mortals who use their specialized knowledge and training to strive for the heavens in an effort to inspire others. One mistake could send them back to Hell! Do not try these stunts at home!
This is your chance to see the World’s largest and greatest touring circus sideshow. You’ve seen these performers as a group and individually on the largest rock festivals in the US and Europe such as Pedal to the Metal with Mudvayne, Static X, Black Label Society, Suicide Silence. You've also seen them on OZZFest (2 years in a row), The Family Values Tour with KORN and The Deftones. They've rocked out on The Vans Warped Tour. They've toured Scandinavia performing on the biggest rock shows such as Metal Town, West Coast Riot and Pier Pressure Festivals with bands like Marlilyn Manson, Slipknott, 30 Seconds To Mars, Ramstein, and much more.
You might have also seen some of these performers on TV shows like The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Discovery Channel, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, The Learning Channel, Guinness Book of World Records, HDNet, The National Geographic Channel and more.
HELLZAPOPPIN, A SideShow Revue is truly a KIDDIE SHOW FOR ADULTS.
A great man once said "You don’t stop going to the circus when you get old, YOU GET OLD WHEN YOU STOP GOING TO THE CIRCUS." He was right, and this show is a hellacious fountain of youth.
In this jaded and turbulent world, the aim of HELLZAPOPPIN is to provide entertainment to an audience that thinks they’ve seen EVERYTHING! It’s our job to prove them wrong! We take great pride in watching a jaw drop or a grown man faint. We call these FALLING OVATIONS. We take the viewer on a roller coaster ride back to childhood sensibilities. Challenging them to rekindle their imagination laughing and "Oh My Godding” as we go about our business of showing them THEY’VE NOT SEEN ANYTHING YET!
Kabarett Vulgare is a bastardization of Weimar Era cabaret and the American Sideshow tradition, performed by a collective of artists from all different mediums and backgrounds. Our goal is to provide an outlet for artists to 'think outside the box', and to engage the audience and challenge their perspective of what they consider bizarre and taboo.
So, come in, leave your hat at the door, and grab a drink...the show's about to begin!
the 2 Live Crew of Polka Jazz Blues.
a fusion of reggae, jazz, punk, and kitchen sink.
