Michael Wheatley - No Rest for the Wicked

Fringe veteran, genre crossing, quintuple threat Michael Wheatley is showing no signs of slowing down. If there's no rest for the wicked then Michael is like the Devil with chronic insomnia and a baby grand piano blocking the door to the bedroom.
No Rest for the Wicked is Michael in his natural environment, behind a piano, with a bourbon, a microphone and of course, the Dirty Carpet Disco Band and some of his burlesque besties including Miss Kelly Ann Doll, Bettie Bombshell, Memphis Mae and Jazida. Join him as he shares his insights on lust, love and writing songs for strippers. Charmingly witty, tauntingly cheeky and with a voice that lures everyone’s attention it’s cabaret for the soul.
No Rest for the Wicked; Funky beats, burlesque, live music, dad jokes.

"A voice that's downright f*ckable" Dan Murphy, Brag Magazine.

"'The carpet’s clean… we’ll have to do something about that,' said Wheatley as he slid behind the piano dominating the Ellington’s stage." ★★★★
