Listen: Las Vegas, New York, Smith Center discussed on PodKats! Las Vegas Entertainment
"New things and growing and you know just the nature sure of what I do <hes> and how I write my music and and my axe and shows are all based around burlesque numbers basically indifferent females themes and stuff so <hes> I enjoy working with different musicians and different different kinds of entertainers ars and entertainment all and you know being the same show for a very long time you know it ah kind of inhibits that in a way and also I had been doing my own shows as you know my solo shows production shows here and they were getting a lot of attention and what you end up doing. I did five or six of them. In the absence ten they were wild. Yes they were outrageously wild and then I did five shows at the Smith Center which were just fantastic tastic. I'd love it. They heard spoke both types of venues but both different shows different shows but one thing that was the constant the the thread that was continuing through all these shows that you're a beer burlesque purist. You really believe in the burlesque art. I do an original form I do but yes you like burlesque. I like the history of it and I love the history of it. Obviously that's <hes> where I came from. New York did the whole burlesque circuit you know and that's where I grew and and got my chops in entertainment and and I it to my burlesque in a way because it showed me I could do whatever I want and MB really free into for failing for in a city especially like Las Vegas where we tend to stamp a lot with the term burlesque and whether formally or informally around the around the city to you what has to be in place for for a show or an act to be real burlesque what we call. What are the must things that have to be in place well I I. I always believe that. Burlesque has always told the story you know. It's not just about someone taking their clothes off. You know <hes> <hes> there are performers out there that do just beautiful strip teases and they're not telling a story or or making a joke or you know entertaining and and and I appreciate those kind of that side of the art form as well but I think a lot of times people think I'm just GonNa go get some lingerie. Victoria's secret lingerie and I'm going to dance and take it off and we're going to call that burlesque. It's not just that you know that there is a difference to it. There is an art form to there. Is this tease about it and storytelling a lot of time. There's going to be es often more than more than not. There's a sense of humor. It's sexy as I understand what you're saying. It's sexy but you can also laugh at it has saw here the other night with with even though it wasn't a strip tease it it was a fun sexy funny experience yeah and enjoyed yeah. I mean and there can be different styles or can be very dark burlesque accent accent and stuff but <hes> my my favorite is to be able to have everyone in the audience be able to feel. I'm approachable to feel comfortable comfortable. You know women and men like especially women. I want the women in the room to feel good about themselves. Feel good about what they're watching and comfortable and and I I love that I love seeing women come together and support each other and I think that's a big draw for burlesque say that I'm remembering when you've approach audience members. There's an absence and with the glove bite the glove and have them pull the always. The woman who's next to the guy watched her to see what her responses. I bet a few fun response. Yes some have a better sense of humor about that. Though I've had women grabbed my hand I've had yeah I've had them. Shout things at me as I lear- but then I realized Oh okay that's that woman. She's mine when I come back out out. I'm GONNA make her. I'm GonNa make her realize that this is yeah. This is entertainment and this is fun and and I and I want you to leave and have a good time with your partner and experience that you just had so right. It's a bit of a challenge for me. Then winning over all the ladies and this is a classic asa case with learning how to do it through many many many performances in it yes yes. There's no no way that someone can get up on stage and <HES> for the first time or even the first fifty times and really know how to work and audience and even still a million times over you can still be caught off guard. Yeah Yeah the response yeah most definitely the more practice you have. It'll you ever told up how many shows you did for absent. We ever get to that number. How many total those numbers at one point there's several it's more than a thousand over three shows rose in Las Vegas awesome in this episode of podcast will be right back.

PODCASTS reached new listeners now back melody is currently working on an as of yet unnamed project by the time that show comes to fruition it will have been over two years and she was featured in a ticketed show in Las Vegas. I wanted to know how she's managed to stay sane in the meantime. I'm I'm not saying too much. Talk Gone Crazy. I like my pink hair pink month yeah. But how do you keep yourself. You know right from remind to be to return to the stage because there's a lot of components. They needed to bring a show back and that's what you're trying to do. Yeah well definitely have been keeping busy. Working on music and working on writing more shows working on things like the event that we just did that this last event. I just did specifically one of the reasons was to get me back out in front of an audience and and do something that I thought was going to be fun and what I thought would be stress-free uh-huh not stress. I raise more nervous this time that I've been in a long time. I've got this prop. It's GonNa be great three three cream dancers with cream delight dancer <hes> they were all jubilee girl the girls we had Hazel honeysuckle do a cookie monster burlesque act that was which was super cute current green for old friend friend of mine from New York also buttercup missed buttercup did a number in the glass thing. She was all up in there for a while. I think she was GonNa side. So what what is the flavor of the month. I should mention. It's a cover and has a rap element to it. Yeah it's a cover of a black black sheep. They're called black sheep from back in the day and I used to love them and love yes. It's all wrapped basically but I used to love old school hip hop. When I was a kid I used to get all the neighbors together these three girl neighbors and I do choreography with them and we'd knock doc on all the neighbors doors and hand them an invitation and they would have to pay a quarter to come to my front yard and watch US perform on my front yard and and black black sheep was one of the songs salt'n'Pepa but even then I was a bit of a tyrant if one of the girls messed up my choreography at stop the show and I yell yell at them and we'd have to start all over people are sitting in the grass. That's your soul and those girls the crew up to be in jubilee. That should be the model for your next show actually corner but that's the template. I figured hey I used to have fun doing it back then and again. You know a born performer. I guess that's the moral of that. Let's talk about the here now miss sweets you're partnered with Adam stick former spy entertainment with a bunch of shows in town human nature boys to men lost clock in the Thunder Land Operation."
