The Tiger Lillies were formed in 1989 and over the decades their performance remains one of the most unique and original things you'll encounter. Martyn Jacques, the band's frontman, songwriter and founder, spent most of his twenties in a flat above a brothel, watching the hustle and bustle of low life in Soho through the window. It took him a good ten years to turn this strange world into art, while training as a singer and songwriter. In 1989 he got his first accordion and soon after The Tiger Lillies were formed.

They are known for their performances in theaters around the world, where they combine their music with elements of theatre, pantomime and cabaret. Their performance is a real visual and audio experience that offers the audience a unique experience. Lyrics are dark, bizarre, satirical and grotesque, often dealing with themes such as death, sexuality and violence.

Martyn Jacques is charisma personified. He maneuvers between his piano and accordion like a man burdened by supernatural fear, yet his voice flows like a melted waterfall. The performance is flawless throughout. Phenomenal.
