"THREE CHORD FICTION: LOVE BITES (BRAT): A Riotous Night of Rock-Theater Cabaret"

"...The saucy pair was backed on opening night by two super-hot members of The Fancy Balloons—drummer Ben Diamond and lead guitarist Matthew Klauser, whose “pansexuality” and skin-tight pants inspired appropriately bawdy ad-libs by Red and Cleo. Edward Krosney joined his bandmates on bass for The Balloons’ second-act performance of original songs, a high-octane cover of The Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer,” and a mash-up of Cream’s “Sunshine of your Love” with Rufus and Chaka Khan’s “Tell Me Something Good”—a perfect match for the powerhouse vocals and audacious attitudes of the cabaret acts." - Phindie

The Fancy Balloons is a four-piece band based in Philadelphia. Borne from four disparate musical identities, friends come together to create an ensemble greater than the sum of its parts. Inspired by rock, pop, jazz, classical, and Afro-Cuban, the Fancy Balloons' music smells like coffee and tastes like thunder.

The Fancy Balloons are comprised of Ben Diamond on drums and percussion, Matthew Klauser on guitar and vocals, Edward Krosney on bass and vocals, and Alize Francheska on vocals, keyboard, and guitar.
