Blending songs from the Weimar underground with a covertly inserted modern repertoire, Mad Jenny and The Society Band whip up a post-modern Weimar time travel to an alternate NYC nightlife by way of Berlin in the 1920s. Weimar girls features and stars the demi-monde of the burlesque and downtown cabaret scene.

Mad Jenny's 'Love Und Greed' features songs from life in Berlin from the 1920s and 1930s by Mischa Spoliansky, Brecht/Weill, Brecht/Eissler, Claire Waldoff and more. They are about love, money, sex, gender and surviving all of this in the city, in a time of great uncertainty and danger. It may well be our time too.
