Album Notes
~A Musical Menagerie of Melodic Mischief~

With the ambitious wish to propel the entire world into a melodic vortex, Marquis of Vaudeville emits an extraordinary sound that spirals listeners on an utterly imaginative, musical merry-go-round. One never knows what moodswung journey they’ll embark upon once these musical highwaymen hijack their consciousness.

With imagination at it's core, the theatrical flare and intriguing nature of their
unique songwriting has grasped the attention of music lovers from the most critical of music elitists to the average radio listener. Numerous music showcasing websites have seen Marquis of Vaudeville ranked within the top 10 of a variety of genres, most recently with the group taking the number 1 seat in Rock with "An Ordinary Day" on Internet and terrestrial radio such as Dallas' leading rock/alternative station 102.1 The Edge have also embraced their music and featured such songs as the dreamy and hope laden "Divine." The group has also been showcased on several music compilations, the most recent being Exploding in Sound’s 'Bands You Need to Know'' with a review stating:

“This Dallas five piece knows a thing or two about hypnotic and beautiful melodies. Marquis of Vaudeville craft alternative rock gems that remain accessible while they wander through space and time. Singer/guitarist Toby Lawhon’s voice dazzles and dances with incredible talent that would make Ours’ Jimmy Gnecco proud. With strong memorable songs, this is the music modern rock radio should be getting familiar with.”

Doug Brod, Editor for Spin Magazine had this to say of their compelling music, "Venus to Vertigo and Bright Star Hope, that mix of pleasant pop and hard-rock dynamics, this stuff is so slick and well-constructed. Very impressive.”

Amanda Palmer of The Dresden Dolls applauds the band with, "Ziggy meets Marc Bolan outside Max's Kansas City. Makes me want to break out some sequined leggings and spit on the sidewalk. Space-age modern-age glam nostalgia."

Alan Ayo of the Dallas Observer praises the band's vibe stating, "Marquis of Vaudeville's self-titled debut is a shrewd fusing of twinkly pop, gaze-at-the-stars vocals and melancholy melody outlined with edgy, trenchant guitars...This is music to paint your own mental picture while listening to—a healthy dose of rock 'n' roll with a fair share of emotion, invention, and imagination."

Hate them, love them, they demand the world take notice, and merely desire to incite something genuine, to inspire sincere emotion despite the world’s mind numbing mediocrity and generic mass production.
Marquis of Vaudeville is a tantalizing flavor for even the most finicky musical appetite.

An ambitious and moving album from top to bottom, Marquis of Vaudeville have released quite simply the best album of 2012. A melodious, psychedelic,/power pop/alternative rock/steampunk concoction that's beautifully produced and loaded with killer hooks, excellent musicianship, passionate vocals and thoughtful lyrics, this album delivers on so many levels. Join "The Great Promenade....". It's a ride you won't soon forget.
