Steam Powered Giraffe

Steam Powered Giraffe are a theatrical steampunk ensemble from San Diego, California. Formed by identical twins David and Isabella "Bunny" Bennett, they incorporate a variety of elements into their act including songs, sketches, pantomime, and improvised dialogue, all based around an elaborate and ever-evolving fictional backstory. Their story began in the theater arts program at Grossmont College where the Bennetts met Erin Burke and Jon Sprague. The quartet began developing their stage personas as quirky, robotic street performers called Peoplebots in early 2008. Eventually adopting the name Steam Powered Giraffe, they introduced the Victorian-era robot characters that would populate their music and stage show, beginning with 2009's Album One. Playing a sort of story-driven vaudevillian folk-pop, the album introduced The Spine (David Bennett) on vocals, guitar, and bass, Rabbit (Bunny Bennett) on vocals, accordion, and keys, The Jon (Sprague) on vocals, guitar, bass, and drums, and Upgrade (Burke) on vocals and tambourine. They toured both theatrical and musical venues and became popular in the steampunk community, playing Sci Fi, Fantasy, and steampunk conventions, and in late 2011 they released their first live album, Live at the Globe of Yesterday's Tomorrow. Prior to the album's release, Burke had left the band citing personal reasons. The second studio album, The 2¢ Show, was released in 2012 and Sprague left the group shortly after. His character was replaced by the group's touring drummer, Samuel Luke, who assumed the robot persona of Hatchworth. A cover of Rihanna's "Diamonds" was released as a single in 2013, followed by their third album, MK III, at the end of the year. In early 2014, Bunny Bennett began began to transition her Rabbit persona from male to female to reflect her personal transformation to a trans woman. The character's shift was explained in their backstory which involves her robot's invention in 1896 by a noted San Diego inventor character named Colonel Peter A. Walter. 2014 also saw the release of DVD & concert album from 2013 called Live at the Robotics Expo. Their fourth studio album, a proposed sci-fi/space concept album to be titled Vice Quadrant, was expected in 2015. ~ Timothy Monger

Best band ever, I've been listening (obsessed) with them since I first heard them. Great songs, great quality, and above all great talent. This is hands down my favorite band.

HOW did I not know this was a thing?! I just found them yesterday and I can safely say they are one of my new favorite bands. I just can't stop listening. Honeybee has to be one of the most beautiful songs I've heard in the longest time. :) Everyone in this group has the most amazing vocal range...... Plus they are adorable robots. LOVE!

SPG has made quite the difference in my life, I really love their style of music and story-tellin g , I love everything about them; SPG has quickly become my favourite. I'm my mind, no other band compares. Steam Powered Giraffe has definitely made its way into my heart. ;>

Holy crap they are so damn good. I can't believe how they've intertwined both old A

Oh my gosh I simply adore SPG! Maybe a little too much...I have played it so much that my family forbids me to play it in the car or out loud so I have to keep the awesomeness to myself (≧∇≦)

They need to get Vice Quadrant here on Pandora, and update some of Album one.

I adore everything about SPG; The music, the theme, and especially the members. Bunny, David, and Sam are just about the most incredible people on the planet.

I adore SPG. To the point that my boyfriend and I are thinking about having a steam punk themed wedding and trying to hire SPG to play.

these 3 are possibly the nicest people I have ever met, I love them so and so glad I was able to cross seeing them live off my bucket list.

This band most likely overloaded Pandora with awesome, therefore, no one not dazed, so no lyrics or biography. My theory anyways. *Sips juice and continues surfing comments.*
