An evening with Dr. Sick Sextette w/ Special Guest Chris Merkley

DR. SICK is a man of many words, hats, talents, and names. Known far and wide as “FiddleKiller,” he is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, playing violin (and all other strings), guitar, piano, drums, harmonica, brass, and homemade instruments, to name a few. A powerful baritone singer and comic song writer, he is also an international announcer/emcee of burlesque, vaudeville, and circus variety shows. After honing his jazz and theater skills while performing for 3 years in the Asylum Street Spankers (Austin, TX), he took a new direction towards circus and burlesque, co-founding the Carousel Cabaret in 2006 (Austin, TX) and traveling as musical director with the 999 EYES Freakshow. He currently leads 3 bands in New Orleans (This Stunted Sextette, The Late Greats, The Bad Meters) and is full time member to others (The Salt Wives, The Rotten Cores, Russell Welch Hot Quartet, Cantiga, That Damned Band).
