JPOD THE BEAT CHEF
SWING SET SOUNDS – CANADA
Ever since his first heartbeat JPOD has had music in his soul. His natural sense of rhythm and movement led to a genuine love for dancing. Equipped with creative motivation and armed with technical knowledge he continues to articulate an original sound rich with flavor. To keep him dancing JPOD consistently makes music with punchy beats and bouncy basslines. But his strong commitment to music with soul has inspired incorporating such vintage sounds as funk, world, reggae, swing, blues, folk, bluegrass, latin, motown and more! With such a range of styles JPOD always takes you on a diverse journey that transforms the dance floor. What could be better than smiling and dancing?
HIGH STEP SOCIETY
VINTAGE SWING MEETS FRESH BEATS – OREGON, USA
When the honeyed tones of The Jazz Age meld with hottest beat drops of the new millennium, you get High Step Society’s elixir of live Electro Swing. Grandma remembers when she listened to jazz giants on the old Victrola. Grandkids feel the bass beats deep in their chest cavity. Merging dance music from our past with sounds for the future, High Step Society features a shimmering horn section that soars over syncopated high hats and rat-a-tat snare. The kids in the band are electronic music producers as well as educated jazz musicians. Audaciously sophisticated, High Step Society is rethinking jazz with unorthodox arrangements, and bringing a touch of elegance to electronic music. Formed in 2015, they are off to a rocketship start, playing festivals and packing dance halls across the Northwest.
& THE ROVING COMPANY OF CURIOSITIES
From the dark depths of the gypsy carnival, we present to you an experience unlike any other. Jump on board as music maker, BASS CARAVAN spins a musical tale of unique Gyspy Funk, Carnival Breaks and Swinging Bass that will enthrall & entertain even the most discerning of crowds. With sets jumping across all genres and encompassing more than it’s fair share of “whomp” you can be sure that the mixture of organic traditional beats and electro based bump and grind will get your feet moving and your butt shakin’!
Joined on stage by his ROVING COMPANY of CURIOSITIES, this eclectic group takes the musical experience and transforms it into a three dimensional, theatrical visualization. Just beware, once you open the door to the gypsies, there’s no telling where the night may take you!
With stellar performances at Circle The Wagons, Shambhala Music Festival and Fozzyfest to packed a audience, we are shaking with excitement as we bring to you another stellar cirque spectacular!!! This is a set you will definitely NOT want to miss!
Vanilladisco plays two roles in the Western Canadian dance music world. On one hand, he selects and curates sonic experiences for clubs, parties and festivals like Habitat Living Sound, Shambhala, Astral Harvest, Fozzy Fest, The HiFi Club, Nite Owl, and countless parks, basements and community halls.
On the other, he co-produces, promotes, and technically executes parties in Alberta and BC as a founding member of Electro Swing Club, The Dirty Gramophones and Grindhaüs, and a regular contributor to BassBus’ musical and written products and the Alberta regional Burning Man scene.
His love for music is matched only by his desire to enable dancers, painters, sculptors, poets and musicians to collaborate on curated celebrations of performance and creativity. Prohibition jazz, grindhouse cinema and sci-fi fantasy parties are only the tip of the iceberg, so keep up and see what other weird and wonderful spectacles you’ll find this bearded dynamo at.
The smokey voice of the incredibly talented Mysterysa is no stranger to the Le Cirque de la Nuit stage. Performing the past few shows alongside the Bass Caravan extravaganza you can rest assured that you in for a very special treat. We couldn’t be more excited to have the stellar performer back on our stage.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A LE CIRQUE DE LA NUIT EVENT?
At Le Cirque de la Nuit our whole goal is to provide an exhilarating and completely unique nightlife experience. This is an immersive event unlike any other! From the incredible music and non stop theatrical performances to our one of a kind, fully themed environment we’re confident that this will be a night to remember!
DO PEOPLE DRESS UP?
YES! Le Cirque de la Nuit events are about patron participation! You are an integral part of the experience and the more you embrace the event theme and get dressed up, the bigger and better the experience will become. We’ve been lucky enough that our incredible patrons have fully embraced the experience and we typically get a 90% dress up ratio! The one comment we hear more often than not from new patrons who don’t dress up is, “I so wish I dressed up! I’ve already got my costume idea for next time though, and it’s going to be amazing!”.
You can check out our Facebook page as we always post up costume ideas to help get you inspired!
HOW DO DIGITAL TICKET PURCHASES WORK?
Once you click the “Purchase Ticket” button above you will be transported to our ticket site ( EventBee ) where you can select the number of tickets you’d like to purchase. Checkout is through PayPal where you can use either you PayPal account, VISA, Mastercard, AMEX or VISA Debit to pay for your purchase.
Once you complete the process you should receive 2 emails. One from PayPal as your receipt for your purchase and the other from Le Cirque de la Nuit which will contain your printable tickets. You’ll need to either print these tickets off and bring them to the event or be able to bring them up on your phone so we can scan the bar codes at the event.
Each ticket contains a UNIQUE UPC / BARCODE which will be scanned at the door by a friendly Le Cirque de la Nuit staff member. So if you purchase tickets and need to transfer them to a different person than the name on the tickets, no worries.
HOW DOES THE PHOTO BOOTH WORK?
If you’ve never been to a Cirque de la Nuit photo booth then your in for our treat. Just drop on by and get your photo taken….please be patient though….sometimes it takes a bit to weed through all the amazing people looking to get a photo done. There’s no cost at all so don’t worry about that. Shortly after the event is over we’ll post up the photos via Facebook and our website. You can then share them, post em to your profile, etc. If you want a full resolution print we can help with that. Just drop us an email.
