We received a glowing review from Burlesque Stars blogger April O'Peel for our Beatles Burlesque production in the Vancouver International Burlesque Festival.
O'Peel writes, "This show was flawless in my mind and special shout outs to Melody Mangler, Violet Femme, Calamity Kate for coming so far and being so damn awesome. I also definitely need to mention Connie Cahoots as being a stellar host! I absolutely loved her characters and skits which really helped the production feel like a production."
The entire night was a big success, indeed the entire weekend was! And I do have to say that the Beatles Burlesque band were particularly rocking that night.
One of my personal highlights that night was performing "Helter Skelter" with burlesque by Melody Mangler. This girl is always "on," and heck was she ever that night. The song itself is so wild, and her playfullness on stage matched the band's energy perfectly. At one point in the song she danced towards my side of the stage, gave me a look, and then sent a giant kick of her leg in my direction.
This was totally unscripted, and her kick smashed my music stand over and sliding several feet away. Not that it mattered. There was just the setlist on it. I think we have to make this a part of the show from now on.
I played my guitar so hard for that song, afterwards I looked down at my pick and I found that I had broken it in half. I've never done that before.
Thanks to everone who was a part of the show!
