Victor and the Bully
Victor and the Bully are a London-based musical duo who often perform at steampunk events.
They describe their music as “a ‘carnival blend’ of live ukulele and acoustic guitar with a twist of orchestral instruments to provide a very theatrical and cabaret-like sound. Inspired by steampunk, swing, mariachi, classical , electro-swing and punk to bring a very different vibe.”
“Victor” is Victor Ghastly, who plays ukulele and sings lead vocals. He is also a solo performer. “Bully” plays acoustic guitar and sings backing vocals. They sometimes record with “an orchestral backing of honkytonk piano, violins, trumpets and anything else we can use to bring a big sound.”
