Singer Lorraine Gervais uses the backdrop of vintage stride piano, a mean rhythm section with old school snare and stand-up bass, hot clarinet riffs, and gypsy jazz guitar to create a neo-swing style all their own.  Individually, she and her players have shared stages with the likes of Zap Mama, Mavis Staples, Pink, Chris Isaak, Etta James, Taj Mahal and Pete Escovedo to name a few. Their musical roots are firmly planted in jazz, blues, soul, world, gospel and electronica from the west coast on out to international stages. With Lorraine leading this pack of musical partyists, every performance is an invitation to step out and have a great time!


“Resembling a sharper and more grounded Mary Louise Parker, the dollfaced Rubin possesses an infectious smile, an unbounded amount of stage chutzpah, crackerjack comedy timing, and a huge repertoire of character voices…We want to see much more of her!” – Bob Verini, Formerly of Variety

Katie Rubin is the Queen of Consciousness Comedy. Or Spiritual Stand Up. She’s a lady person. AND she’s funny. AND she looks deep and serious topics through a nimble, dark, and hilarious lens.

Katie toured her first comedic solo show, Insides OUT!, to venues across the country for the past 8 years.  Insides OUT! received a nine week Equity production at The Sacramento Theater Company in March and April of 2006.  It also had a 4 week run at Equity Theater, Foothill Theater Company in Nevada City.  The show has toured to over 100 events and venues.

Katie began her career as a Solo Show Performer at Amherst College with her first original piece, PartyBoobyTrap.  Her second play, Avoiding Less Blue, was produced through the 2000 New York Fringe Festival.In addition to performing and writing original material, Ms. Rubin also works as a stage, screen, and voice over actress, and is an acting and vocal coach.  Most recently, she played lead roles in Capital Stage’s production of In The Next Room or The Vibrator Play, The B Street Theater’s production of Rabbit Hole, and Wit, The Sacramento Theater Company’s A Christmas Carol, and Foothill Theater’s production of Urinetown.Ms. Rubin’s most recent writing credits include the completion of an original 10 person play for Capital Stage’s annul fundraising event, and two plays commissioned by the Health Education Department at UC Davis.

Based in the Sierra foothills of Northern California, Bow-Tie Beauties Burlesque Troupe is a performance group of strong, sensuous women and men with a variety of performance backgrounds.  They present a blend of dance, circus, and comedy with a sensual slant. Their Burlesque Circus Side Show in Nevada City last year was a huge hit leading to a steady stream of performances including shows at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco.

Jamal Walker will spin discs for dancing into the wee hours of the New Year.
