Joe Black & Nanu Nanu
In the Court of…Duke Special presents a special double bill – neo-vaudevillian, Joe Black & Dublin-based alien pop duo, Nanu Nanu.
“The king of cabaret noir” – The Metro
The neo-vaudevillian, the real life Disney villain, the gin-addled courtesan, the anti-christ of cabaret and the one and only waltzing cynic… Joe Black. Join us for an evening with this entertaining and inspiring cabaret artist, who has performed sell-out shows across the UK, Europe and internationally.
Joe Black is no stranger to the ridiculous, the sometimes disturbing, or the downright shocking world of entertainment. As well as regularly treading the boards of the sell-out sensation that is the world’s biggest fetish club, Torture Garden. He also hosts his own sell-out residency in the lavish Edwardian Kings Theatre in Hampshire.
He has performed and toured alongside The Tiger Lillies, Voltaire, Duke Special and Toyah Wilcox, as well as performing sell-out shows at the Rome Palladium, the ‘Kerrang!’ awards, and headlining arts and music festivals across Europe, America and Australia.
One of the pioneering personalities in neo cabaret, Joe Black is the unmistakable Vaudevillian Villain.
Nanu Nanu is an ALIEN POP duo based in Dublin. Members MARC2 and GLITTERFACE use analogue and modular synths teamed with electronic beats and live drums (RORY DOYLE – SUPERFLY) to create a foundation upon which layers of processed and effected vocals can be thrown. The result is the spectacular sound of Nanu Nanu. This year will see the release of Nanu Nanu’s debut album, Unit 1, which will be released on vinyl through Flaming June Records. Nanu Nanu is one of the most exciting and diverse acts to come out of Ireland this year – don’t miss this one-off performance at In the Court of…Duke Special.
The MAC says
Duke says: “I know Marc from his role as keyboard player from Bell X1 and Laura I met when she played saw with me on a recent show in Dublin. Together, they form Nanu Nanu, creating strange, haunting and beautiful music. A must see!”
