Event founder, and president of the Wild Wild West Steampunk Convention- Jason Dotrman has a strong passion and knowledge of steampunk.

“Steampunk is a wonderfully artistic mixture of the Victorian culture and the optimistic, imaginative look to the future that science fiction brings (A mixture of “Steam” and “Punk”). A Steampunk masquerade ball of this type has never been done in Arizona and we’re very excited to be working with some wonderful, enthusiastic entertainers to make this a reality. While this is billed as a Masquerade ball, we encourage everyone to exercise their imagination and come dressed to impress, in whatever steampunk style strikes your fancy.”

Entertainment includes “Bad Cactus Brass Band” who will be debuting their unique New Orleans style of Steampunk Music, Dance Performances by Kara La Fleur of BurlEscapades, Pixie Styx, and the Osiris Dance Company, and DJs Atom Bond and NOisE who will be mixing artists performing at the Wild Wild West Steampunk Convention II with dance music.

The Bad Cactus Brass Band are a New Orleans jazz band based in Phoenix, Arizona, who have agreed to debut their newly formulated unique mix of jazz, and steampunk styled music at the Steampunk Masquerade Ball! They are the founders of Phoenix Mardi Gras, and will bring a tantalizingly alluring atmosphere to the Masquerade Ball- so be prepared to put on your best dancing shoes for a kickoff event you won’t want to miss!
