Host: Montague Jacques Fromage

Our host this year is an old acquaintance: Montague Jacques Fromage! montyVLAD1

“From full scale genre conventions to intimate cabaret and pub settings, Monty is the creator and international purveyor of SteampunkFunk Bizarre, Victorian Rap and assorted lyrical conundrums. Steampunk Chronicles’ “Person to Watch/2013″, this US based performer mixes patter, Victorian subject matter and danceable funk backbeat. Adding “music hall” audience participation and stand-up comedy, even the “uninitiated” will understand the plight of a steampunk time-traveler caught up in today’s hectic world. The evening’s entertainment is a delicious comedic confection of funk, soul and just plain fun! Monty (and his alter-ego, Victorian rapper LMJ3) has appeared at major Steampunk conventions in the US, UK, DE, NL, FR, and Luxembourg. He has performed, MC’d and shared stages with Steampunk legends Professor Elemental, Abney Park, Voltaire, Unwoman, Frenchy and the Punk; Dale Rowles/BB Blackdog, Metropolis, Gladstone, BirthRite, and a host of other international Steampunk headliners. Major Steampunk venues have included (USA) Steampunk World’s Fair, Teslacon, AnachroCon, SaltCity Steamfest, WickedFaire: UK/EU venues include Alt-Fest, Asylum, Steampunk Summer Solstice, Aetherfest, Emporium Vernesque, Nox Victoriana Judicio as well as a host of upscale pubs, clubs and intimate cabarets.”
