Frenchy and the Punk w/tba Shrunken Head, Columbus, OH 7/12/2018
Multi-cultural Genre-bending NY Duo Frenchy and the Punk: Imagine Siouxsie Sioux and Dee Dee Ramone had a duo that was inspired by Django Reinhardt, Edith Piaf, Toulouse Lautrec and Deepak Chopra, this is what it might sound like. One part Dresden Dolls, Sonny and Cher and one part White Stripes. A pixie spirited flexitarian band of tree hugging, gothic, folk punks by way of Paris and New York. Doused in red wine, kale and granola, raised on punk rock and ballet, eclectic and uplifting…fun with a capital F!

The product of a 1998 office romance, the two left their temp jobs, traveled as a solo musician (him) and artist (her) selling their wares until 2005 when, Stephenson, the sultry French born singer jumped onstage and joined, Helland, the fiery punk rock guitarist from the golden days of the hardcore scene (Deep Wound/Outpatients - Western, MA), and Frenchy and the Punk was born. Along the way they were embraced by the Cabaret, Steampunk and Faerie Festival scenes and were named one of the ''Top 25 dynamic duos in America' by Yahoo music.

The unlikely pairing has since released 6 full-length CDs, produced a live concert DVD and have performed all across the U.S. and in Europe. Their show is a carnival of two that will take you from the Moulin Rouge to CBGBs and back again. A rollicking flapper folk punk cabaret with Taiko meets Rio de Janeiro pounding drum instrumentals.
