Album Notes
Alacartoona's stage show is a visual extension of their all-original songbook. Utilizing a stripped down ensemble of accordion, bass, drums and the occasional guitar, they bring to life vivid tales of love and loss, of bedrooms and back alleys, of the solitude and the camaraderie of sex, drugs and cabaret.

An Alacartoona show is an experience: poignant lyrics, powerful vocals, surprising compositions, all supporting a cast of characters completely convincing in their triumphs and tragedies. No one leaves an Alacartoona show unmoved, be it to tears or libidinous conquest. Or both.

But words pale in the face of experience. Come to the cabaret and see for yourself...

"songs from the show" is Alacartoona's debut release.

alacartoona is love!!!!!
I can't say enough good things about alacartoona. She is unique, original, sultry, sexy, and extemely talented. "Songs From The Show" comes close to experiencing alacartoona live, but you realy must see her live to get the full effect of her intoxicating spell. You'll want to "Fluff & Tickle" her all night!


unique and beautiful artsistry
These songs are fantastic story songs told by very theatrical once modern and old fashioned, Alacartoona is a clever vixen full of love and ginsoaked romance.
if you want something sad, sexy and unique, check her out. Her heartbroken yet hopeful door remains open

Mary Capehart

Sex, Love and Cabaret
Alacartoona's CD is full of raw sexy fun that pulls you in then releases your senses to all the energy, passion, love, and heartbreak that life has to offer. Lick your lips luscious.


I loved it!! It's a differant form of music than I am used to but I am now a big fan of caberat music. I will be ordering their other CD shortly and, if it's anything like the first, be burning up my CD player!!

The CD is almost like being there
If you haven't seen alacartoona, you should stop whatever you're doing right now, book a flight to Kansas City and catch their next act. If you can't do that, buy the CD--it's the next best thing to being there. Sexy, humorous, sad, satirical, happy, delerious--I love it, and I'm going to have to buy another one because my daughter took my copy to Chicago so she can pretend that she, not I, discovered alacartoona.

Very Nice!

Imagine, if you can, a band who’s songs and entertainment value can turn your worst day completely around for you. Then try and imagine that somewhere there’s a band who’s only goal is to make you feel loved. Now, imagine one more time that this special group of people have prepared a show for you so full of playfulness and joy that you can’t get it out of your mind. A show, in which even the sad songs make you feel special. Well, thank goodness we don’t have to imagine this group!! They exist! They are Alacartoona! They are giving up to you incredible songs of Passion and Love. Of Lust and Anguish. Of Sadness and Joy! Every song stays with you even days after having heard it. You find yourself singing along with them, and then one day you realize that you’re the happiest you’ve been in weeks! WOW! What a Gift! Thanks!!!

Finally, two years after their stage debut, Alacartoona has finally released their CD. The wait was worth it. All it will take is one listen to the seductive charms of vocalist Ruby Falls and the understated, yet stylish accordion of Archibald Drexel and you will be hooked. Welcome to the show!


Don't miss
Songs from the Show is funny and tragic and exhilarating and desperate--and very much worth your time. Check it out.

Devoted Ala Lover

Songs from the Show if finally here!
If you're lucky enough to live in the greater Kansas City area you've probably seen Alacartoona play live before - a tantalizing experience to say the least. They've finally released a CD allowing those not so close to home to hear the lyrical and musical genuis of Alacartoona. Ruby, Providence, Archibald and Bachelor put their love for love, lost-loves, Epicurean excess and gender-bending ubersexuality into a most refreshing and original debut album - beautiful, sorrowful, arresting and fun as hell.
