Gonzales, the self proclaimed Entertainist is a Canadian musician, songwriter, rapper and pianist residing in Paris. He regular collaborates with Peaches and most notably Feist (co-writing Limit To Your Love recently covered by James Blake ). In 2004 he released an album of Solo Piano drawing comparisons to Erik Satie and last year the more pop orientated Ivory Tower including Never Stop (used to soundtrack the I-Pad adverts). He holds the Guinness World Record for the longest ever solo concert (over 27 hours at the piano) and in 2010 he held a weekly residency at London’s Pigalle Club with his piano talk show, playing his songs alongside guests like Jarvis Cocker and cockandbullkid. It’s a version of this show he will bring to the seated cabaret stage at The Apple Cart.
Bourgeois & Maurice
Georgeois Bourgeios (androgyne sociopath) and Maurice Maurice (femme fatale) are the brother and sister who have been called “21st Century stars like no other” by Time Out. They write songs with satirical lyrics and catchy pop hooks, about the world you live in. Part-cabaret, part-theatre, part-catwalk freakshow. They’ve enjoyed sell-out Edinburgh festival shows, performed at The Queen Elizabeth Hall, The Royal Opera House, The Royal Academy of Arts, and sold out their debut run in the West End at Soho Theatre. Their show is unsuitable for children.

Literary Death Match
The LDM now holds residencies in 34 cities worldwide and features a mix of four writers who perform their most electric work for seven minutes or less before an audience, a panel of judges who spout off-the-wall commentary about each story. Two writers go through to the final where they trade in the show’s literary sensibility for an absurd and comical climax to decide the winner.
Marawa The Amazing
As seen on this year’s Britain’s Got Talent, Marawa has hoola hooped just about everywhere from Glastonbury and Edinburgh festival to New York, Paris and all over Australia. She performs internationally with the Olivier award winning La Soiree (formerly La Clique). She spins, twirls and shakes her way through each performance involving a huge array of skills culminating in the big finales where she spins up to 70 hoops!

Double Bass Dan and Luke Sticks
The most in demand Double Bass, drums and vocals duo this side of the hemisphere. Expect a rhythm and melody driven concoction of classic tunes spanning pretty much all genres. Anything from good old doo-wop and rock n roll, to ska, motown, country, pop and dance classics, and a few of their own lovingly crafted tunes. These boys have one simple aim to get you partying, old school style!
The Erection Section
Pete Wiggs (Saint Etienne) and Johnno ran the Erection Section at The Social in W1 from ’99-00 on Monday nights where they played their favourite soul ballads to a small but appreciative audience. Want to hear The Bee Gees ‘Fanny’ and get it on with Marvin Gaye? Then get sectioned as the pair dust down their 7-inches and re-unite after over a decade.
