NORTH BAY CABARET

North Bay Cabaret is a Neo-Vaudevillian Variety Show Troupe based in Sonoma County, California. Shows include a rotating cast of entertainers and artists who craft original experiences for each event’s unique theme.

Our flagship event occurs monthly – every third Friday – at the Whiskey Tip in Santa Rosa. Types of performances include burlesque, comedy, circus, poetry, music, magic, fire arts, and more. We are available for festivals, private parties, fundraisers, and friendship.

Jake Ward is the Founder & Creative Director of North Bay Cabaret. He is also the co-creator and ringmaster of Circus Maximus, a Sonoma County based circus troupe that focuses on family friendly events, community activities, and circus education programs for youth.

In addition, he is involved in an eclectic array of community events and causes as a freelance events specialist, offering consultation and direct services including production, promotion, booking, hosting, social media, and fundraising.

Booking at North Bay Cabaret is coordinated through our Creative Director Jake Ward.

Each month’s variety show features performers from all over the Bay Area and beyond. If you have an act prepared, please have a written description of your piece ready to share, as well as video and photography if possible. Apply here!

North Bay Cabaret is also available for performances outside of our monthly format including collaboration with other grassroots groups, festivals, private parties, industry events, and fundraisers. Book here!

North Bay Cabaret is at its core a grassroots organization with the following values:

– To develop an inclusive, sustainable platform for experimental performance art that pushes boundaries and empowers local artists

– To rejuvenate the stagnant performing arts scene and nightlife in the North Bay

– To facilitate solidarity in the Santa Rosa community by creating a space for diverse audiences to experience expectation defying entertainment together

Content at North Bay Cabaret is developed independently by artists in our community and network.

Our approach toward curation encourages artists to pursue their creative instincts to the extreme, resulting in the empowering performances unique to our collective.

In rare cases this can offend the sensibilities of patrons unfamiliar with our approach. We provide this content warning at the box office of our shows. We hope this properly informs our patrons and that audience members have the best possible experience.

Each month at North Bay Cabaret we operate a raffle benefiting a local nonprofit organization or humanitarian cause.

In the past we have worked with the SchoolBox Project, the Living Room, the Verity Crisis Hotline, and conducted benefits for the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, the Aleppo crisis, the Pulse Nightclub shooting, the Standing Rock protests, Yes on Measure C, and the Bernie Sanders campaign.

If you are interested in conducting a raffle through North Bay Cabaret, please contact us at [email protected]

Since 2014 the Whiskey Tip has hosted North Bay Cabaret’s flagship monthly shows. They are located at 1910 Sebastopol Road, Santa Rosa.
