Friday night was a step back in time for an evening of burlesque and musical performances at The Champagne Riot! Down into the speakeasy vibe at Dominion in New York City, the show was entitled Blind Tiger and the line up of burlesque and musical talent included:
Queen of Burlesque JULIE ATLAS MUZ
Breathtaking Bendable Beauty HARVEST MOON
The Aptly-Named MR. GORGEOUS
She’ll Make Your Heart Go Hippity-Hop BUNNY LOVE
Twenties Tap Sensation GIN MINSKY
and The Fastest Girl In Town MISS JEZEBEL EXPRESS
With Hot Jazz by Special Musical Guests THE RED HOOK RAMBLERS
And the charming Emcee DANDY WELLINGTON
From The Champagne Riot’s website: The Champagne Riot is a vintage celebration that serves up an intoxicating cocktail of Hot Jazz, Scintillating Burlesque and Vaudvillian Frivolity.
This fizzy-buzzy party and performance event takes as its inspiration the early twentieth century’s American spirit of rebellion and celebration. Each Riot features live music, old glamour burlesque, and a variety of vaudeville and circus performers. Cultivating an aesthetic of “vintage fantasy”, the Champagne Riot combines elements both new and old to create an atmosphere that is at once both nostalgic and entirely novel. The Champagne Riot is produced by burlesque artist Miss Jezebel Express, jazz sweethearts Gelber & Manning, tap-dancing talent Gin Minsky, and that most elegant of emcees, Dandy Wellington.
Now happening every 2nd Friday of the month at Dominion NY!
