Cabaret artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good cabaret bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top cabaret bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Cabaret groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all cabaret bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest cabaret bands of all time, since the most famous cabaret artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best cabaret music.

You can click on the cabaret band names to see more information about that particular notable cabaret group. If they're near the top of the best cabaret artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top cabaret bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the cabaret band names themselves.

Use every item on this list for yours, from Chumbawamba to Josephine Baker. Every time you vote for an item you think deserves to be at the top, that item can rank higher. Show some love to your favorites like Marc Almond or Emilie Autumn.

All important, significant and iconic names in cabaret music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new cabaret bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of cabaret, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into cabaret music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good cabaret bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent cabaret bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best cabaret bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest cabaret musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular cabaret bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.

After you've voted for the best ones, share this on Facebook, Twitter and more to get your network's input. (62 items)
