This sequinned serenader specialises in pop classics through the ages that might have been played on a cruise ship – this was the inspiration for the cabaret element and nautical theme. However such songs take on a new life when performed by a one man band with a piano accordion, accompanied by back-worn bass drum, a pair of hi hat cymbals and various hooters, whistles, jingles and lord knows what else. Still great songs – but entertaining in a rather different way!
This is something of an indulgence for Bill – he has always been drawn to the musical circus that is the classic one man band. In January 2017, he said this out loud to friend and mentor Pete Moser. By late March they’d built a OMB rig and Captain Cabaret dropped anchor and disembarked onto an unsuspecting world.
