Emerging from the emerald twilight of Portland, Oregon, Sepiatonic is a vaudeville-inspired dance and music experience. Some parts theatrical show, some parts wild dance party, this project always brings innovative audio and visual entertainment! They feature non-stop original live and electronic music, focusing on electro-swing, but extending out into further realms of balkan beats, hip-hop, funk, and more. Sepiatonic strives to bring vintage class into today’s electronic music, and to put a bumpin’ booty party into a vaudeville experience. With high-energy tunes, dance acts, and wild antics up their sleeves, they strive to distribute joy everywhere they venture!
Produced by Karolina Lux, theatrical belly dancer and burlesque artist, eZel, innovative electronic producer and musician, and Anthony Meade, touring composer and recording artist, Sepiatonic is available for festivals, cabarets, theatrical venues, private events, and more. All projects contain original music, fabulously theatrical characters, sass, verve, award-winning dance and musical skill. Sepiatonic’s members are also available to teach workshops.
