Sir Reginald Pike Devant Esquire
This week we take a moment to feature Sir Reginald Pikedevant, Esquire who will be performing at the Chicago Steampunk Exposition this September.
Regarded as one of the top Chap Hop artists in the world, Sir Reginald Pikedevant, Esquire first rose to the notice of the Steampunk community with his humorous YouTube music video, “Just Glue Some Gears on It (and Call It Steampunk)”, which has over a million views.
Sir Reginald puts music through the Steampunk blender, combining the tiny rap subgenre of Chap Hop with the sounds of Victorian music-hall songs and barbershop quartets; all infused with the dry wit of a P.G. Wodehouse character.
We are very excited to for September, but meanwhile you can preview more of Sir Reginald’s music on his YouTube channel.
