So much to catch up on....
We got a great review on Examiner.com from the show we did for Mon Cherie's Rockabilly Lounge, here's a segment:
"Syrens of the South featured several amazing burlesque performers, and they also threw in a magic show by a handsome vampire magician for the ladies! Hostess for Syrens of the South Katherine Lashe was also a pleasure to watch. Her mix of humor, allure, and sarcasm resembled the lounge lizards of the past, but she brought the style back to life.
My favorite performance throughout the night was Renea' LeRoux. She did burlesque as the Queen of Hearts, in a beautiful costume she designed herself. Not only is the buxom beauty nice to look at, but she gives these coy and almost evil glances that really add to her performance. She's definitely one to look out for!"
This past weekend we opened for Unknown Hinson at Variety Playhouse and it was an amazing experience. Coming up: We have two shows on Halloween so check out the calendar for all the details! One from 6-11 for you early types and one from 10-dawn for you late night types!
Also, there's a poll for the top 50 burlesque performers and you can nominate any five performers, MCs, teachers, etc.... and we'd love to see some local Atlanta talent in that top 50! Katherine Lashe, Talloolah Love, Renea'le Roux, Ursula Undress, D'lilah D'lite, Rosie Palms, John Carney...they're all great choices from the Syrens of the South family.
Yesterday we performed at the Rockabilly Lounge and found out we'd been mentioned in this article on Examiner.com. Lots of photos from the previous Rockabilly Lounge in September so you can see what you may have missed or just relive the glory!
Now onto this week!
