FAM Phenomenon: Big Band Burlesque Extravaganza at Club Soda
MONTREAL, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – June 6, 2016) – Femme Fatale Entertainment and Montreal Burlesque Productions, two powerhouses of the contemporary burlesque scene, join forces to bring to the Club Soda stage FAM, a dazzling musical review of the greatest cabaret and burlesque hits of all-time. It is an unprecedented spectacle of song, dance, burlesque, circus, and live big band music, starring the mighty voices and dizzying curves of Sarah Isabelle, Josianne Villeneuve and Audrey Maheux-Racine. The young trio of rising Montreal divas are accompanied on stage by a troupe of leading female dancers, including the magnificent Myriam Farger and Emilie Hebert. Together, the members of this gorgeous cast accumulate hundreds of live shows under their garter belts, including appearances and collaborations with some of the most prominent names in the Quebec music scene, in Canada and abroad.
FAM will sparkle with performances by featured star, Scarlett James, Montreal’s world-renowned burlesque artist, infamous for having seduced audiences of Europe and from Las Vegas to Shanghai with her inventive tease numbers and impressive collection of bespoke bejewelled outfits, tailored to accentuate every curve of her statuesque figure. And if all of the above were not enough, audiences will also marvel in suspense at the grace and awesome strength of Duo Miraka, two stunning female acrobats who have taken the circus world by storm with their prowess on the “hoopole,” a unique hybrid apparatus combining a dancing pole with an aerial hoop.
Big numbers require big live music, and FAM definitely goes large by entrusting its musical direction to Christian Leclair and his Big Band. A veteran of musicals such as Dance-sing, Hairspray, Sister Act, and Grease, Christian is recognized today as Quebec’s master of big band sound and, therefore, the perfect man to bring to life the epic soundtrack of FAM with his vintage orchestra. Guest star musicians also include international percussionist, Elie Bertrand, an artist of beauty, power, and precision, who has pounded her drum set around the world with the likes of Stephane Rousseau and has warmed up stages for Motley Crüe.
The 35 costume changes of FAM are the brainchild of Jonathan Grandolfo, the undisputed leading costumier to Quebec’s most fabulous drag queens.
FAM will take place on Saturday, June 25th 2016, at Club Soda. Doors will open at 7 p.m. and the show will begin at 8 p.m.
