Showgirl Adventure: Rockabilly Queens!

Posted by RubyJoule On March - 23 - 2012

Readers of this column will remember that at last post, yours truly was in the running to perform at the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender coming up in April.  Well, thanks to you and a score of supportive friends and fans, I was voted into one of the few performance spots!  Endless thanks go out to all of you who voted– the race was so close, and every single vote mattered.

One time in Vegas... Ruby Joule, by Don Spiro

The pressure isn’t off yet though; the real competition hasn’t even begun!  You see, this burlesque show will feature the eight finalists competing for the big ol’ title of “Miss Viva Las Vegas 2012.”  I wanted to get the real low-down on what it takes to land this award, so I met up for cyber-cocktails with some of the previous winners.

SHAKE OUR SOULS BURLESQUE CONTEST

Posted by Dee-Ann On March - 6 - 2012

SAVE OUR SOULS PRESENTS THE SHAKE OUR SOULS BURLESQUE CONTEST In Association with Slow Burn Burlesque

Producers of the New Orleans Burlesque Documentary Are Offering a Grand Prize of A Trip for Two to New Orleans and a Chance to Perform With Slow Burn Burlesque and the stars of Save Our Soul At Howlin’ Wolf in July 2012
Save Our Souls is the provocative new documentary from director Mike Sanchez, which gives a raw and intimate glimpse of the neo-burlesque scene in New Orleans in the months after Hurricane Katrina through the eyes of the performers of the Slow Burn Burlesque troupe.

Personal interviews with the artists strip away the glitter and lashes, revealing the humanity of the art-form that calls this broken city “home.” As New Orleans rebuilds, the stories and the performances of Slow Burn unfold for Sanchez’s camera, playing out to a hand-picked rock ‘n roll score, which features music from The Yelling and Russian Mafia band Debauche.

Showgirl Adventure: Making the Best of it!

Posted by RubyJoule On February - 2 - 2012

My second grade teacher told us, “If you don’t have the best of everything, make the best of everything you have.”  Some may find this a tired cliché, but this idea took hold in my 7 year old mind and has been with me ever since.  As a burlesque showgirl, I am in the business of making the best, and presenting the best of myself on stage, in photos, and in general.

You’re probably familiar with the trappings of showgirl glamour; fishnet stockings, fake lashes, big hair, red lips… but what about the inner workings of a showgirl that carry her through the craziest of situations?  Burlesque performers often find themselves facing a variety of stages, crowds, and venues– from big beautiful theatres to dimly lit dive bars, and everything in between.  For the sake of sanity and beauty, it is of utmost importance to make the best of things. Always.  This skill is perhaps the most important accessory a showgirl can possess.

Rockabilly: the twang heard ’round the world

Posted by Miriam On July - 7 - 2011

!!!!!INCLUDING COMPETITION!!!!!
We’ve got a request by Eventageous PR Ltd on behalf of MBI Publishing Company (of Voyageur Press) with the question if we want to make a review about the recently published book  “Rockabilly, the twang heard ‘round the world”.
Now there are several books published about rockabilly, rock ’n roll and the heroes of this time, but this book is really fantastic! Indeed an illustrated history, very stylish and graphic.
The book contains interviews and reminiscences from Brian Setzer, Wanda Jackson, Scotty Moore, Deke Dickerson, Robert Gordon, Charlie Feathers, Glen Glenn, Billy Riley etc.
More than 600 rare photographs, concert posters, singles and LP’s, memorabilia and collectibles. It doesn’t only describes the history and background of those days and artists, but it also includes looks at the fashions, guitars, amps, and recording techniques that made the genre come alive, as well as the latter day rockers (Sleepy LaBeef, The Stray Cats, The Cramps, etc.) who gave it life after the ‘50s.
The author of this hardcover book is Michael Dregni , with the cooperation of Greil Marcus, Craig Morrison, David McGee, Luc Sante and many more. The foreword is written by Rock ‘n Roll legend Sonny Burgess. The book has eight different chapters, below a brief summary:
Chapter 1: Sunrise; Elvis Presley at Sun Records 1954-1955.
Chapter 2: Whole lotta shakin’; Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and Jerry Lee Lewis.
Chapter 3: Sun’s unsung rockabilly heroes; those who would be king.
Chapter 4: Rockabilly far and wide; local stars, regional hits.
Chapter 5: Gene and Eddie.
Chapter 6: The dark ages of the 1960s; rockabilly lives on in the shadows.
Chapter 7: Rockabilly, european style; twang with a foreign accent.
Chapter 8: Rave on; the worldwide rockabilly revival.

Even those who aren’t fans of the rockabillly genre would love this book, but when you’re a true rockabilly? Then you need this book!
We give you the opportunity to have this book in your collection. On behalf of Eventageous PR Ltd we’ll have two copies available for our website visitors. We’ve devised a little contest, consisting of three questions.
The answers to these questions can naturally be found in the book, but the real ‘die-hards’ know these facts undoubtedly.  

Question 1: what is the date (exact day and year) of the famous Sun-recordings of the Million Dollar Quartet?
