The Theatre Bizarre Orchestra is the house band for Detroit's annual Theatre Bizarre Event. Rooted in Detroit's burlesque, rock & roll, jazz, and vaudeville culture, the TBO are a band of musicians invoking the spirit of dark carnivals, demented circuses, and ribald debauchery, which can only be defined as neo-vaudeville. Their music is captivating and mesmerizing, and their show blends the ethereal with the burlesque in one fell swoop. Like the four winds they travel across the land, moving from city to city throughout the year, a pied-piper ushering spirits to that grand Theatre Bizarre Gala every October in Detroit. A cackle and a rustle in the autumn leaves, something wicked this way weaves!
