Rockabilly Riot

Rockabilly Riot - Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On!

That's right, I'll be performing for another month's edition of Rockabilly Riot at the Seahorse Tavern.

From the Facebook Event:

"Some people like to rock, some people like to roll ! But movin' and a-groovin's gonna satisfy my soul!Let's have a party!"
Hosts
Chris Martin - front man from The Trouble Shooters & Floyd Live from Live105

Musical Guests:
... Filly & the Flops - Montreal QC
Filly & the Flops combine elements of rockabilly, ’50s rock’n'roll and doo-wop . The voice of singer Felicity Hamer sports the conventional cutesy throat twinge prevalent in the rockabilly genre, while the chemistry of bassist E.B. Eaton and drummer Eric Thibodeau forms the backbone of the five-piece band’s fast-paced, kitschy sound.
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Filly-The-Flops/213581007463?sk=wall

The Whiskey Kisses- Halifax, NS
The Whiskey Kisses wear their influences on their sleeves, which just happen to be attached to western shirts.
The lost sounds of Gram Parsons, Patsy Cline, Buck Owens, and many more are re-lived and re-loved.
The influences of these Kings & Queens of country music are echoed in the Kisses' original tunes, tunes that will have you crying in your beer or dancin' the two-step…or both!!!

Eddy Blake - Montreal QC
Eddy Blake is a stand up bassist/vocalist from Montreal. He is known for the rockabilly style bass playing, renowned for doing so well while literally standing atop his double bass. Eddy also has a sweet soulful Rockabilly Country voice, with a repertoire of Old Time and original material ranging from dark crushing ballads to the delightfully absurd.
Eddy fronted the Cockroaches, legendary Montreal punk rockabilly trio. During the band’s 5 years, they released one 7” ep on Solid Sex Lovie Doll Records and a full length CD on Real North Records. The band toured Europe and eastern Canada and were featured on the Bravo TV documentary Rockabilly 514.

2012 - The Year of MOAR BURLESQUE!

2012 is shaping up to be a great year!  Pink Velvet Burlesque has lots of exciting plans in the works, including the following show schedule at Menz Bar:
I'm also booking other shows and events and am looking forward to what will hopefully be my busiest burlesque year yet!  If you're interested in booking me, drop me an email! kaylicious1(AT)gmail(DOT)com!

My plans this year also involve travelling to the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend in Las Vegas in June, (I've even applied to perform in the Miss Exotic World Pageant! *fingers crossed*)  and I'm looking forward to going back to the Toronto Burlesque Festival and will be once again applying to perform there.

All in all, it's lining up to be an exciting year!  I'm looking forward to it!
