Gaslight Gardens

Although formed in Kansas City, Alacartoona is a modern act inspired by the European cabaret movement that arose in Berlin and Paris at the turn of the last century. Comprised of accordion, bass, drums and guitar, this quartet delivers bawdy numbers, lusty sing-alongs and tearful ballads. The band's show is headed by a master of ceremonies, who cajoles the audience members to prove their love to Alacartoona, while the heart of the performance is the chanteuse, who utilizes both raw emotion and exposed garter to enthrall them. The experience is one part musical theater and three parts theatrical music.
