Birthdays and Burlesque

Yesterday was my Mum's birthday so we headed into the City to The Supper Club to catch A Velvet Affair Burlesque. Hosted by the lovely Miss Lauren La Rouge whose witty banter kept us entertained all evening, the night showcased some of Sydney's top burlesque talent.
The evening kicked off with Australia Top Showgirl Sarina Del Fuego who looked every part the goddess in her gold Isis wings. The divine Holly J'Adoll, a newcomer who's taking the scene by storm who titillated and teased with her fabulous Naughty Nun routine and made every man seriously consider Sunday school!

Next came the deliciously dark vocal stylings of Loveday who put a spell on us all with her sultry tones. The delightful Tasia lightened the mood next with her fabulous gold Go-Go girl routine. Leading us into the interval and light as a feather on her feet was the lovely LuLu who wowed us with her stunning fan routine.
After the interval Holly J'Adoll returned with a fabulous balloon popping routine that showed us why everybody wants to be a cat. Tall Paul was doing it for the boys with a hilarious boylesque routine that had us in stitches. Next was a new addition to the program when our lovely compere Lauren after being asked (bribed!) by my Step dad hauled my Mum up on staged for a round of Happy Birthday to You! Suitably embarrassed and threatening to kill my Step dad my Mum returned to her seat and we return to the normal program.
We were in for twice the treat next with a fab double routine from Lulu and Tasia and rounding off the evening was Sheena Miss Demeanour whose "I'm Tired" routine from Blazing Saddles was a perfect comic ending to a fabulous night out. Tired but wonderfully entertained we headed home as the Hubby had to be at work in 4 hours!
The next Velvet Affair will be Friday 30th April and will feature fabulous acts from Heidi Hoops (circus), Georgia Ruby (burlesque), Pedro Ruiz (magician) and more. Head to A Velvet Affair website for more details and photos of the March show.
Check it out for yourselves dear readers ... x
