What exactly happened last week? Well, I bring you The Recap by Scooter Pie:

So winter decided to come back and visit us this week, but did that stop the crowd- and performers- from rocking the hell out of Wednesday night at Shaken & Stirred? I think you can guess the answer.. NO WAY! Thanks to everyone who came out in the yuckiness last night to dance, party and play with us (still waiting for a few rounds of Seven Minutes in Heaven, though..), and take in all the goodness onstage, with a special shout-out to the band Soundspeak who had a gig going on downstairs and came up with their peeps afterward to see what all the fuss was about.
It was a night of animal instincts, folks, as guest Creamy Stevens continued to "put the gore in gorgeous" with her cow act, debut (and not just S&S debut! Debut, period! So exciting!) performer Marinara Stardust made one sexy glam-rock alligator, Runaround Sue treated us to her act to the song "Snow Lion", AND featured performer Jesse Belle-Jones (of Sinner Saint Burlesque, all the way in Seattle, WA!) got primal as a wild cat in one of her acts. I totally broke a sweat, it was THAT HOT. We treated the crowd to four, count 'em FOUR sets, at 10, 11, 12, culminating with our super special Secret Track at 1 am, with another Jukebox dance-off between Runaround Sue (speaking of WILD!) and yours truly Scooter Pie. We're always broadcast live on, but if you can (and you certainly should), come check us out next (and every) Wednesday in the flesh and be part of the Shaken & Stirred revolution! See ya next week XOXO

And now, on to some sneak peaking with BUNNY LOVE:

Featured Performer Profile – Shaken and Stirred

  1. What does Burlesque mean to you?My first thought is community, friends, fun, performance, creativity, art...and I think that's enough. I don't need to give you my textbook definition because if you're reading this you must already know.

  1. How did you choose your name?It was meant to be, Bunny is a nickname from college friends in New Orleans and Love was my Grandmother's maiden name which some how my parents neglected to work into my birth name so I had to do it myself.

  1. Who was your first celebrity crush?Michael Jackson

  1. What are you reading these days and why?Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill and why do you think? But I really should say trying to read it. I can't seemed to get past the first chapter. Now you really know why I'm reading it

  1. What is your favorite performance anecdote?Every time I step on stage!

  1. Please distill your life philosophy into either a couplet or haiku: The love you take is equal to the love you make.

7. How can the people find out more about you?It's very difficult, I was abandoned by my web designer and don't know how to update my calendar and I'm not one of those who post my every move on FB, but you'll see my name in other people's announcements and show flyers- or write to me and I'll let you know what's next!

A sneak peak at this week's Shaken and Stirred Featuring Jesse Belle-Jones

Oh yes... the steamy heat of spring.... Here it comes darling! And this week's very special featured performer at Shaken and Stirred is none other than Seattle's very own JESSE BELLE-JONES! Joining her is our own hometown hero of haute-ness CREAMY STEVENS with the blushing debut of MARINARA STARDUST and the GoGo Goodness of EVILYN VINYL. As always our resident heart throb DJ JESS gives it to you just like you like it while Queens of the Goodtimes, RUNAROUND SUE and SCOOTER PIE give you more than you ever asked for! No Cover! Free huckleberry vodka shots brought to you after each set courtesy of 44 Degrees North Vodka!. GoGo starts at 930, Burlesque sets at 10 and 11 with our very special secret track at 1am. Bring your friends, your lovers and everyone in between to what Time Out NY calls "Your Perfect Wednesday Night."

What exactly happened last week? Well the exactitude has surrendored to the collective unconscious and what we are left with are the very wonderful musings of SCOOTER PIE:

"Shaken & Stirred was voted one of the top five things to do in all of New York City in this week's Time Out NY magazine! Guess the secret of "NYC's best kept-secret" is out.. We had a ball at the show this week, which featured the many charms of "the Asian Sexation" Calamity Chang, the S&S debut of the charming Charlie Gunn, double doses of my much-loved partner in crime Runaround Sue and yours truly Scooter Pie, and hot hot hot gogo courtesy of La Divina Gransparkle. Spotted in the audience were our good buddies Albert Cadabra and Danger Doll, keeping the party going all night. There were 3, count 'em, 3 birthdays being celebrated in the crowd by three lovely ladies who duked it out during our dance contest- I'm hoping to see the winner back on our stage again sometime soon! See ya next week, ladies n' gents- it's gonna be officially spring, so no excuses! Til then, party on, kids. XOXO SP"

And now a very sweet sneak peek at JESSE BELLE JONES:

  1. What does Burlesque mean to you?

Beyond the textbook definition, burlesque to me is a performance outlet for my ideas and sensuality and sexuality, about the politics of the body, about images, both glamorous and grotesque, that I encounter in the world, and about creating a space in which both performer and audience can feel safe and confident about feeling sexy.

  1. How did you choose your name?

Most apparently, it is an homage to Jezebel, a character from the bible, who was a fierce leader and ruthless politician who was in the unfortunate position of being a woman. She was executed for the latter of these crimes. More importantly (to me), however, I chose "Jesse" because of its gender neutrality. I play with the flexibility of gender in a lot of my work and wanted both feminine and masculine identities available to me.

  1. Who was your first celebrity crush?

Danny Elfman is the only celebrity to whom I've written fan mail. I was OBSESSED with his work in high school. He never wrote back (the fool).

  1. What are you reading these days and why?

I'm reading Tennessee Williams' memoirs right now. They're so juicy! My awesome friend and room mate read them and is lending them to me. I love the equal affection and disdain he seems to have for people. Plus, he was a huge slut and I admire that in just about anyone. :]

  1. What is your favorite performance antecdote?
I started doing burlesque when I was still in graduate school. When I first began, I was teaching freshman level courses that comprised mostly of students too young to come to the bars where my shows were. I didn't consider that when I started teaching senior level classes that my students were a couple of years older. Within the first week of teaching my first 400-level Syntax course, a guy from my class showed up at one of my shows. I recognized him immediately. He either didn't recognize me through the pounds of makeup and drag hair I had on, or he was polite enough never to acknowledge the chance meeting.

  1. Please distill your life philosophy into either a couplet or haiku:
Let's just get naked
Go outside and make some art
The rest will work out
7. How can the people find out more about you?
I'm assistant producer/choreographer/dancer for my burlesque troupe: Sinner Saint Burlesque Review
I'm co-producer of the Seattle chapter of Naked Girls Reading: Naked Girls Reading Seattle
I'm the events coordinator the annual Seattle-based educational event: BurlyCon
People can friend me on Face Book
People can follow @JesseBJones on Twitter

Navigating a femail body through academia and the world at large, Jesse Belle-Jones is one bluestocking bettie whose edgy antics and sultry grace will leave audiences scratching their heads, and panting for more.
With her strong dance background and academic approach, her stunning concepts and choreograpy both challenge and captivate. Jesse's acts are packed with tantalizing food for thought served up in a sharp, scintillating style that is gauranteed to keep her on your mind.
Jesse is co-producer of Sinner Saint Burlesque and the Seattle chapter of Naked Girls Reading and can be regularly spotted dancing at the Noc Noc, Burlesque Behind the Pink Door, and Oddfellows West Hall in her hometown of Seattle, Wa. She is thrilled to be a cast member of "Behind the looking glass: A burlesque Alice in Wonderland" as well as a member of the Seattle cast of "SHINE: a burlesque musical, " traveling with the production to the NY Fringe Festival in 2010. Jesse is also the Events Coordinator for the Seattle-based annual BurlyCon international education burlesque event.

See you Wednesday Sweethearts xoxo

Whhoooo Boy - Do we have a stellar Wednesday night planned for you. Featuring the hot hot burlesque stylings of CALAMITY CHANG, a dangerous debut by CHARLIE GUNN, Go-Go goodness by DAVINA GRANDSPARKLE, our resident heart throb DJ JESS and of course your weekly hosts RUNAROUND SUE, and SCOOTER PIE. As always, at hte Delancey with doors at 930 and sets at 10 and 11. Free huckleberry vodka shots provided by 44 Degrees North Vodka and debaucherous good times all night long. No Cover! Streaming live each week on

Curious about what you missed last week? Take a look at Scooter Pie's weekly recap:

Picture it if you will- the scene on Wednesday, March 9, 2011:
Outside the Delancey: still cold & generally yuck.
Inside the Delancey: HOT n' steamy!!
It was a wild one for the books, folks, I cannot tell a lie- Shaken & Stirred was (figuratively) ON FIRE last night (if I do say so myself)!
Our very special featured performer Albert Cadabra offered up some naughty naked(ish) magic, S&S first-timer Lindy Lollipop was luscious, classy dame Ginger Brown serenaded us, and go-go sensation Hazel Honeysuckle kept the crowd real happy. Runaround Sue displayed several of her numerous talents- at once- with her famous chess act, and I, Scooter Pie, discovered that the audience was a bunch of wannabe cannibals. Don't ask.
In sports news, The Champion earned his fourth beer-contest win in a tiebreaker after a near-upset by an underdog competitor! It was the first Shaken & Stirred beer game tiebreaker second round I've ever seen, and boy, was it tense! Seriously!
Also, a special shout-out is due to this week's super-enthusiastic dance contest volunteers. Your moves were inspiring. And sexy.
See ya next week!

And now.... for a sneak peak at this week's featured performer: CALAMITY CHANG!

**photo by Malgorzata Saniewska

Calamity Chang was born in Taipei, Taiwan and grew up in Santa, Cruz, Bolivia, Tampa, Florida, Houston and Dallas, Texas. She went to undergraduate school at Cornell University, majored in English, and joined an all-girl improvisation group. After four freezing years in Ithaca, she attended Columbia University for a Masters of Fine Art in digital media. A big fan of over-education, Calamity furthered her academic training by attending the School of Burlesque in NY where she found her true-calling in burlesque performance. She currently produces four shows: Spanking the Lower East Side at Nurse Bettie, Beatles Burlesque at Public Assembly, Drunken Dragon Nights at Macao Trading Company, and Room 69 at Hotel Chantelle.

1. What does Burlesque mean to you?
Right now at this part of my life, burlesque performance means a branch of self-expression that writing and graphic design have not allowed me to access. It also means entertaining a crowd which I absolutely love!

2. How did you choose your name?
I grew up in Texas (some part of my life) and I came up with my name “Calamity Chang” as a pun and homage to the original Southern misfit “Calamity Jane”.

3. Who was your first celebrity crush?
James Dean

4. What are you reading these days and why?
I’m catching up on all the classic striptease autobiographies. Just finished “Mother in G-String” by Gypsy Rose Lee’s son. Now I’m reading “Georgia: My Life in Burlesque” by Georgia Sothern. I love the way the language from the 30s is captured exactly like the way people spoke back then.

5. What is your favorite performance antecdote?
When wearing a big mask like my Hello Kitty costume, make sure you don’t get turned around by your choreography and always know where the audience is so you don’t end up facing the back of the stage when you pull your mask off.

6. Please distill your life philosophy into either a couplet or haiku:
If you don’t feel like going out,
Then don’t go out.

7. How can the people find out more about you?
They can find out all about me on my website

Sugar Shack Burlesque to offer workshops at the Firehouse Theatre in Richmond

Sugar Shack Burlesque will be offering three distinct workshop at the Firehouse Theatre on April 23rd in Richmond Virginia prior to their evening performance. Classes are available for every level of performer and are taught by working professionals in the vibrant NYC Burlesque Community. Classes are offered twice, at 3pm and 5pm. To register in advance please email

Listed below are the course descriptions:
3pm and 5pm

This introductory class is taught by the International Producer of Sugar Shack Burlesque: Miss RunAround Sue. In this workshop Miss Sue leads participants through the basic moods and attitudes of burlesque while encourage students to use their own uniqueness to infuse the choreography taught in class. Choreography will include the bumps and grinds, stocking and glove peels and other classic burlesque moves. This workshop is perfect for students wishing to dip their toes in performance or simply wanted to spice up their private life. Students are asked to bring a pair of heels and a dress with a zipper in the back. Class is limited to 15 students.

RunAround Sue has taught in over four countries and produced hundreds of burlesque shows throughout the US and abroad. She cofounded Sugar Shack Burlesque in 2006 and continues to build a stellar reputation for spreading the burlesque love. You can find out more about her and her company here:

3pm and 5pm

Beneath the glitter and gowns, tassles and tease, a burlesque performance is basically a dance. And before even one glove is removed, a peeler needs to show her command of the stage by being in command of her own movement. In her new class "High Kicks in High Heels", esteemed New York performer Miss Ekaterina will show you how and when to incorporate advanced stage-movement techniques into your choreography in order to put your routine through the roof---wait, that's TOO high of a kick!

Even if you have no formal dance or gymnastic training, Miss Ekaterina will show you tricks and techniques to to strengthen your movement control, adding pizzaz to your stroll and umpf to your bumps; as well as common sense stretches and agility-building exercises to keep you injury free in this most physical of activities.

Ekaterina got her start as a classically trained dancer and gymnast in the former soviet union. She is a Miss Coney Island pageant winner (2007), and currently performs internationally as a soloist and as a member of the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus. Even if you cannot stand on one leg, raise your other leg above your head and then tuck your foot under your chin (as she does everyday), her wealth of experience will give you knowledge and appreciation of the kicks, splits, and flourishes which will take your routine to the next level!

3pm and 5pm

Do you have an act you are working on or even just an idea for an act? This is your opportunity to receive input and feedback from international Burlesque Sexsation Bunny Love, who has a background in theater and dance and has worked as a performer, producer, writer and director in the burlesque scene for over 12 years. Together you will explore the possablities for your act, such as: character development, use of costumes and props, musical choices and story line. Don't miss this chance to take your performance to another level with a valued critique from a powerful and unique performer.

Miss Love will be in Richmond and available for private instruction through 4/25.

To register for any of these workshops or for any questions, please email

A Sneak Peek at this week's featured perfomer: ALBERT CADABRA

This week we are amped to bring one of our favorite magic men and boylesque perfomers: ALBERT CADABRA to Shaken and Stirred! Our guest performer this week is none other than the sugary sweet GINGER BROWN. Making her debut in the Sugar Shack is LINDY LOLLIPOP and giving great gogo is HAZEL HONEYSUCKLE. Hosted by RUNAROUND SUE and SCOOTER PIE with DJ JESS on the ones and twos. Free Shots after each burlesque set provided by 44 Degrees North Huckleberry Vodka. No Cover! Doors at 930, Burlesque sets at 10 and 11 with the SECRET TRACK at 1am.

But first! Our recap of last week's Shaken and Stirred by Scooter pie:

We brought March in with a BANG here at Shaken & Stirred. What a thrill it was (and, based on the reaction from the audience, our crowd certainly agreed) to have the sideshow spectacular-ity of featured performer the Lady Aye, who wowed us with a daring (and sexy!) straightjacket escape AND "down the hatch without a scratch" sword-swallowing feats! Guest Dame Cuchifrita (of Brown Girls Burlesque fame) brought the hotness- literally- with an act involving candle wax, Iris Explosion made our inner geeks drool with some Ms. Pacman action (complete with marshmallows), and this week's go-go sensation Foxy Vermouth shook it up, down, and all around, and left us wanting more, more, more!! Runaround Sue dazzled with her Snow Lion act (my current fave of hers.. a must-see!), and I did a little tribute to County Cork with an Elvis Costello song. In like a lion? HELL YEAH!! GRRR... See ya next week!

ALBERT CADABRA: The Great Deceiver is a professional, award-winning, comedy sideshow magician who delivers powerful, amazing and devilishly wild magic. Albert pushes and twists the boundaries of the art of magic with unique performances including; eating razor blades and a 3’-long balloon, hammering 6” spikes into his face, electrocuting himself with 2,000 volts of electricity and turning his assistant into a gorilla. He makes people and animals appear and vanish at will and escapes from chains, shackles, locked crates and straight jackets—all with the flair, style, class and great sense of humor you would expect from this seasoned, professional magician.

  1. What does Burlesque mean to you? - Keeping people excited, slightly turned on and completely entertained.

  1. How did you choose your name? - It was given to me at birth.

  1. Who was your first celebrity crush? - Winona Ryder no wait, at 10yo it was Kristy Mcnichol and her perfectly feathered hair!!!

  1. What are you reading these days and why? - Water for Elephant because it has to do with a redhead from upstate NY who runs away and joins the circus. That's my life.

  1. What is your favorite performance anecdote? - It has to be when I was hosting the Rockabilly festival at coney island when my volunteer for the human blockhead was Michelle of Americas Next Top Model fame. When she came up onstage she decided to pull the nail out of my nose using her teeth! It was incredible. Also, after that show I was told she was Michelle from amercas top model, the one with the flesh eating bacteria!!!! Now whenever I do that bit, I tell the my volunteer the story and that they have the choice to use their hands or their teeth and a surprisingly large number will use their teeth. I love it!

  1. Please distill your life philosophy into either a couplet or haiku: Life will never be a bore. If from an audience I hear a big roar!!! It makes me feel good not misunderstood, and that love is mutal of course!

7. How can the people find out more about you? -,
