As you can see, we’ve all been busy bees with shows and photo shoots creating serious excitement for BurlEscapades. If you can swing by Albuquerque, NM this coming weekend you can get a peek at our sister troupe Va Va Voom performing with Romantasy Cabaret at ABurlyQ! Burlesque & Sideshow Spectaculár!
For complete Weekender details including classes, vendors, events, raffle events and more, please visit www.aburlyq.com.
They’re going to be performing some fabulous numbers with particular excitement for the solo performers that will be gracing the stage from Phoenix, AZ. Good luck, er… break a leg lovelies!
Romantasy Cabaret is this Saturday! Come see the award winning show! There are only a few more seats left for the 8.18.12 show. If seats sell out there will still be general admission available on the ticket site.
This show is not to be missed. Click here to buy tickets and we hope to see you at the show!
BurlEscapades is proud to announce our newest kitten Sable Switch! She hails from Phoenix Arizona and brings the heat and the spice to prove it. With her smoldering dark looks, once you start watching her you won’t be able to look away. You’ll see her joining us on stage this fall. Congratulations to us all!
It’s been a fun summer! Here at BurlEscapades we’ve been busily working on next season’s performances, and we’re excited to announce that we’ve expanded to the San Francisco area as well. You can count on seeing the same great dancers at our shows along with same exciting additions (our little kittens are growing up!) and we’ve been coming up with titillating new dances and costumes. The next show coming up is August 18, with Romantasy Cabaret at Club Red in Tempe. Come see us wiggle and tell them Kara sent you! 😉
We had a great night of dancing and live music at FatCat Ballroom this past Tuesday night, 4/10/12. The band “Jump, Jive and Wail” played great music from the heyday of swingin’ Las Vegas, from when the Rat Pack (Frank, Dean, Sammy, etc.) ruled the strip and the airwaves, and we danced the night away to their smokin’ tunes. There was a lot of beautiful Vegas themed dressing up – think Mad Men, Rat Pack, Jackie Kennedy, and some of our lovely BurlEscapades models strutted in a Vintage Vegas Fashion Show arranged by Jenny Kuller of Red Sadie Vintage. On top of all that it was our dear friend Steve Conrad’s birthday! So it was a great time with a fabulous guy who has been promoting/teaching Swing Dancing in Arizona for 17 years. All that and cake too!
It has certainly been too long since the last posting, especially considering everything that has been going on! C’est la vie, right? In the last post, Mercy and I were preparing for our invasion of the Hubba Hubba Revue in California, since then we’ve been in non-stop preparations for Romantasy Cabaret’s Spring show on Saturday 3/24. That’s this Saturday!
If that wasn’t enough, we got to hang out with some very cool cats on Vic Tim’s No Label Az Radio Show. We brought some fabulous Lucky Player Vodka (the Kingcake flavor is my favorite thing ever!) and we chatted with The Relics to while away the evening. The gentlemen were perfect, we felt so comfortable talking with them, and the ladies of the show are always a blast. We talked about Burlesque, local bands (No Gimmick called in while we were there), Roller Derby, and lord only knows what else! If anyone has the nerve to say there’s nothing to do in Phoenix, they’re dead wrong! Kick that person in the ass and sit them down for a session of Vic Tim’s show one Monday night, these guys know where the action is! Mercy and I did a little striptease while Dr. Voodoo played some hot tunes live on his guitar, and a good time was had by all.
So now it’s less than a week before the big show! Come to Club Red in Tempe on Saturday,3/24/12, and tell them Kara sent you…
Sometimes one has to look at the past for inspiration. In preparation for tonight’s show, Mercy Beaucoup and I are watching Dean Martin’s Rat Pack Live 1965 Perormance, along with some Robert Goulet for good measure.
We have decided what we really need is to always go onstage with a drink and a cigarette.
Those crooners from back in the day sure could belt them out. As Dean Martin’s silver notes escape his soft lips, we’re melting like the ice in his scotch. Get ready for us to bring some of that sauce onstage tonight at the Hubba Hubba Revue in The Uptown, Oakland, Ca.
