Come one, come everyone to the Railway Club's New Year's Eve Carnival Spectacular! Thrill to the wild, post-apocalyptic, outlaw rock noir of Big John Bates! Experience the internationally acclaimed musical cabaret extravaganza of Reverend Heathen StrangeFellow and the VaudeVille Vagabonds as they unleash an awe-inspiring production of epic proportions! Drink to the stellar prohibition-era drunkabilly with Devil In The Woodshack! Don't miss this one of a kind New Year's Eve celebration!

BIG JOHN BATES crafts a southern gothic landscape drowned in atmosphere and resurrected in fire, spinning dark cabaret, rustic blues and alternative country into a sound that could be described as Americana Noir. With blinding intensity and spellbinding stage chemistry, his band's awe-inspiring, bass contorting, stage jumping, sparks-a-flying live performances have been riveting audiences throughout North America and Europe.

REVEREND HEATHEN STRANGEFELLOW & The VAUDEVILLE VAGABONDS is a gypsy rock circus show with live music, exotic belly dancers, contortion, sword swallowing, clowns, audience game shows and even werewolves fighting Mexican wrestlers! Musically inspired by the likes of Gogol Bordello and Tom Waits, the shows are akin to a grass roots Cirque du Soleil in the form of a swing/rock band with coed vocals and instrumentation including standup bass, accordion, clarinet, baritone saxophone and drums. "Acrobats, monsters, belly dancers, a Riverboat Queen, and the best undefinable and amazing music I've experienced in decades!" -- J Andrew Banks (journalist/photographer)

DEVIL IN THE WOOD SHACK is a six-piece acoustic band with unapologetic honesty and more intrigue than a well told story! Their members hail from opposite ends of the country, forging a gypsy, western, pirate punk sound that's raw and untamed, straight from hell riding on drunken angel wings.
