Steam Powered Giraffe

Nominated for: BEST Local Bands BEST Family Entertainment

Steam Powered Giraffe San Diego CA (619) 971-3294

Steampunk and Futurism mesh together with mime and music to create a breathtakingly imaginative act. The robots of Steam Powered Giraffe are like nothing you've ever seen.

The malfunctioning joke-spewing metal men play a collection of original Vaudeville inspired tunes fused with modern flare and executed in a super-sleek, one-of-a-kind performance.

More than just a band, Steam Powered Giraffe is an experience that must be seen and heard by the entire family.

The act combines the visual of robot pantomime with sketches, pop culture references, improvised comedic dialogue, and of course, original music.

From their heartwarming nostalgic melodies to their funky cabaret rock, Steam Powered Giraffe's songs are memorable, infectious, and as unique as the robots themselves.

100 Tips from Voters

Family friendly in the extreme. The band takes keeping the shows PG very seriously. Families are encouraged to bring kids and they make a special effort to make room for the littlest fans right up front where they can see the robots up close. They also try their best to get the little ones to the front of autograph lines. It's better for everyone's sanity :) So bring out the whole family, wear your favorite costumes (there's room in kazooland for just about anything) and have a good time. Their star is rising fast so do your self a favor and catch them soon!

One of my all time favourite bands! Their music will blow you away and then somehow keep growing on you until you're humming the tunes in your sleep and spending all your money on travelling to shows! Worthwhile act that never gets tired or old, always evolving. :)

I think this is the ONLY BAND that has MAJOR fans ranging from age 5 to 95+! SERIOUSLY! These guys are Amazing!! My son Michael PHilip Reed is "One Man Band Michael" behind the three "Bots" up front in full costume and fantastical makeup, who put on a great show! The other major player next to Mike is Matt Smith, killer drummer!) The "Bots" up front put on quite a show--again, for ALL ages. What a garden variety of audiences! Everyone shoulder to shoulder singing the words to almost every song! There are Diehard STEAMPUNK fans in full dress, right there with Moms, Pops, little kiddos, teens, and 20 yrs olds right up to 95! There are the Visual artists, Jazz artists, Theater fans, Costume Designers, Alternative Music lovers.... everyone there enjoying the show. Each member of SPG (and their hardworking Sound man Steve, and the "Walter Girls") work tirelessly traveling and creating this show for all, and the incredible DVD's and CD's! Next stop EUROPE, UK and JAPAN!
