Shocktober Part the Third! [Nov. 23rd, 2014|01:14 pm]
Miss Von Trapp

Shocktober continued after Shhh Burlesque's Halloween Spooktacular and onward into November!

Here are some photographic highlights for your enjoyment...

First up was Mrs Lovett compering the Burlesque in the Basement's Fraudeville Friday! It took three different and increasing sizes of gin bottle to demonstrate the woop and holler at the start of the show...

And at the start of the second half, Mrs Lovett performed an impromptu Have A Pie burlesque routine, which was a lot of fun - look on my YouTube under 'live shows' or here: http://youtu.be/YrzTTbKa-gA  ...as well as finishing off with a new song!

It was a fantastic show to compere and a pleasure to be a part of. I love you BITB Crew!!

The very next night I was off to Club Rainbow at the Rainbow Hotel in Torquay to perform two fifteen minute sets. Always a pleasure to perform there - wonderful staff and great backstage atmosphere anf as ever such a mahvellously appreciative audience!

They loved my new material (A Mother's Lament and Every Time We Say Goodbye) and were in splendid voice for both halves... I went as Miss Havisham again wearing the flower that had been thrown onstage at the Shhh Burlesque show.

Following which, I was invited to Armadacon 2014 to provide the end of round incidental cello music for the tea-duelling.  Naturally I went as Missy - the regenerated female Master from Doctor Who...

And had a MAHOOSIVE amount of fun playing the Only Connect music, Countdown, the Imperial March, Jaws and much more on the cello...

Missy even beat her favourite Doctor at tea-duelling! He was very gentlemanly about it and I ate a whole bag of jelly babies... and was interviewed for BBC Radio Two. I had the chap with the microphone singing along with the worm song... Oops.
Me! On the radio again!! :D

And then I finally finished up my batshit crazy Shocktober month with a birthday performance at Tiki Bar for my favourite burly lady: Miss Kitty Kane.

As you can tell it was busy busy busy for the whole of October and onward into November... a grand total of SEVEN gigs... and taken up three blog posts...

And then there was the Steampunk Yule Ball still to go which I shall reserve a whole separate blog post for...

And a duet on the cards with Professor Elemental again. Most splendid! More later :Dxxx
