Featured Dancer: Jill Mercy
Honky-Tonk showgirl Jill Mercy began her burlesque journey in San Diego and 2019 as the co-producer of San Diego’s Bless Your Heart Burlesque Revue. She has recently saddled up and moved East to Baltimore, Maryland. Mercy is known for her oeuvre of classic country western acts and rhinestone encrusted ensembles which marry the show businesses of country music and burlesque. By day Jill is an esteemed burlesque photographer, keeping busy behind the lens at Slow Hand Photography. Aptly known as “The One-Woman Rodeo” Jill Mercy brims with swagger, sparkles, and sensuality wherever she goes.
Dancer: Silver Kitsune
“The Fox Of A Thousand Faces” – A feral figment originally from the mountains of North Carolina, this clever creature was lured onto the stage with the promise of adventure in the fall of 2010. Silver Kitsune is an innovative performer, producer, writer, fabricator, graphic designer, teacher, and trickster who depends on their mixed bag of dynamic life experiences and skills to bring about unique, unexpected artistry. An experienced burlesque performer/producer, MC, go-go dancer, BDSM/Kink performer, and lately novice aerialist, there are very few challenges on stage (or off) that this leggy vulpine isn’t willing to test their wits against.
This queer recluse spends their time off-stage battling the forces of boredom by refining their performances, tinkering away at Foxy Fancies projects, inventing new ways to harass their pets, flying their rainbow flag, practicing archery, and nerding out over multiple fandoms.
Kitten: Lavender Tart
Burlesque performer. Soprano. Putting the MILF in Middle F-ing Tennessee!
Host: Viola Vainglory
Viola Vainglory is a burlesque performer, producer and femcee in Nashville, TN. After years of theatre work and costuming, Viola found her true performance love in burlesque. The sparkle, spectacle and sensuality of burlesque fit perfectly into that hole in her heart. She’s been charming audiences since 2011 with sweet, sexy and nerdy acts ever since.
Viola has just taken on the role of producing the Wednesday burlesque show at Sid Gold’s Request Room, and she co-produces Senectitude Burlesque, a touring show exclusively for performers 40 and up, and travels across the country performing when she’s not dancing or on the mic in Nashville.
She’s Nashville’s Shakespeare of Shakin’ It!
