In a world of film noir soul, twisted tales are told through the eyes of the City of Angels’ falling angel, Toledo. Dames bring each story to life in this femme fatale cabaret. Every hip’s breath says “Ain’t no victims—only volunteers in here” …smack dab in the heartbeat of the whole dirty deal that is the Toledo Show.
The Los Angeles Times dubbed him “the coolest cat working in Hollywood” and the Los Angeles Weekly called his show “dramatic and campy, in the best possible way.” One of the city’s most adored cult icons, L.A. native Toledo Diamond has been wielding his magic in front of sold out crowds for over a decade. Toledo is a soul singer, jazz man, poet, dancer, choreographer and connoisseur of haberdashery who has toured most of the United States, as well as Australia. He’s also been described as a “cult icon,” “urban word man,” “groove–master,” “the underground King of L.A.,” “dancer extraordinaire,” “the modern day Sammy Davis, Jr.,” “cool to the bone,” “the Svengali of sensuality,” and “the best kept secret in the music business.”
Born and raised in Los Angeles, he started dancing at the age of 15. He went on to work as a choreographer and dancer for recording artists including Janet Jackson, Sammy Davis, Jr., Paula Abdul, Diana Ross, the Pointer Sisters, Bonnie Raitt, the Mask, Al Green, the Isley Brothers, George Michael, Smokey Robinson, Toni Braxton and Kathy Sledge. He also choreographed and danced for feature film directors such as Antoine Fuqua, David Fincher, Dominic Sena, Thierry Mugler, Rupert Wainwright and Charles Wittenmeler. His choreography of US3s “Cantaloop” video earned him an MTV Video Award. 
Mixing speakeasy jazz, hypnotic storytelling and Toledo’s smoky voice with funky bass lines and femme fatale dancers, this cabaret is like no other. Toledo’s poetic free-styling & exciting guest performers make every show unique.
