The MegaFlame Big Band & Cabaret
The MegaFlame Big Band & Cabaret
The MegaFlame Big Band and Cabaret plays a mish-mash of mid-century jazz, blues, and cool "re-conceived" versions of contemporary tunes. We include a lot of theatrical elements in our playa-inspired set which runs the gamut from Ella Fitzgerald to Morphine and from Tom Waits to Big Mama Thorton.

A MegaFlame event is always a BIG show with a constantly evolving family of performers. Not only killer tunes from the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s, but also vintage-style burlesque, fire arts, schtick, and plenty of costume changes! MegaFlame is a step back in time with a modern twist.

We also perform in various sized smaller configurations—from three pieces all the way up to the full 10 person musical crew.

Members: Angela LaFlamme, Meghan Rutigliano, Richie Leeds, Tim Orr, Greg Olwell, Jimmy Sancious, Al Conde, Pete Sembler, and Casey Jones Bastiaans
The Incidentals
The Incidentals
The Incidentals are full of contradictions - simultaneously familiar and strange, both a tribute and a deconstruction, a moody noirish celebration that shouldn't work but totally, totally does. Familiar songs take on new identities in the hands of The Incidentals. Material from Patsy Cline to Neil Young, from The Cure to The Carpenters, gets reinterpreted with drama, mystery, and soul. A simple line up of guitar, upright bass, and drums is fronted by Sioban Dixon's dynamic vocals creating a sound that draws on the band's combined experience of playing indie, jazz, soul, Americana, punk, and experimental music.
