“Uke-Ooh-La-La!” Ukulele Burlesque show at Jalopy's on Thurs, Feb 11
Ukuleles and Burlesque: what sounds like more fun than that? Clearly, it's been done aplenty back in the day. But in 2010, NY has Ellia Bisker, aka Sweet Soubrette, to thank for this genius idea.
Ellia's promo material from the Facebook Event page:
“Uke-Ooh-La-La!” is a ukulele & burlesque extravaganza where the 4-string meets the G-string. On February 11, ukulele-playing heartthrobs and homewreckers team up with burlesque dreamboats and femmes fatales to present an evening of original music and classic striptease with live accompaniment. See some of NYC’s hottest stars strumming and strutting their stuff, all in the spirit of St. Valentine. With a special appearance by the World Famous *BOB* and hosted by Sweet Soubrette at Brooklyn’s most romantic venue, Red Hook’s Jalopy Theatre. Ooh la la!
Featuring performances by: Agent 99 * Bliss Blood * Ekaterina Sknarina * Ginger Baker * Jamie Scandal * Josh Bisker * Les Chauds Lapins * Mike Richter * Sonic Uke * Sweet Soubrette * the World Famous *BOB* & more…
