Orchestre L’Pow! continues to blow the doors off the Bossanova Ballroom with the baddest burlesque show in town. We kick off our 2013 season with a bang, featuring two-time New York Burlesque Festival, Golden Pastie Award winner Bettina May. She’s so good that the U.S. Immigration Service awarded her a green card based on her “artistic genius”. We’re gonna shimmy! We’re gonna shake! We’re thrown’ a Shindig!

Shake it 60’s style with Orchestre L’Pow!’s version of the dance party. Featuring the music of Henri Mancini, Burt Bacharach, Dick Dale and others of that swingin’ musical era. We’re gonna give our go-go dancers a workout! Be sure to join us for a mingle at our pre-show Cocktail Soiree, beginning at 7pm and featuring Deejay Reigh Lee spinning 60’s lounge mashups. We’ll be serving up hip cocktails at a deal from the fine folks at Drambuie Liqueur.

Also gracing the stage are the fabulous L’Pow! Company Dancers; Madison Moone, Itty Bitty Bang Bang, and The Infamous Nina Nightshade. Our hep host with the most is none other than internationally renowned burlesque MC, Vincent Drambuie. All dance routines performed to the post-punk big band sounds of Orchestre L’Pow! – the Northwest’s premier burlesque pit band.

March 9 at the Bossanova Ballroom / Cocktail Soiree 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm / 21+ / $10-$40. Tickets are available online through the Bossanova Ballroom. Visit the Orchestre L’Pow! Facebook page for special incentives and ticket giveaways.

    You should let me win because I’m the jerk who pointed out a typo in the title of this post (“coctail” should be “cocktail”) :-D

    Oh and I love ladies.

    Love me some burlesque! Haven’t been in forever! and my man has never been! Help me pop his pasties cherry!

    No shimmy, no shake make man go cuckoo!!

    Dans les buissons
    Sous le ciel du moi d’août,
    Les amoureux glissent a pas de loup,
    Comme les oiseaux ils ont rendez-vous,
    On l’entend partout, ou, ou!

    Zou bisou bisou,
    Zou bisou, zou bisou,
    Mon dieu que c’est doux, ou, ou!

    [This roughly translates to:

    “Even if I’ll never be as hot as Bettina May
    or as cool as Orchestre L’Pow,
    this new guy I’m seeing
    just told me he used to do boylesque in Lala.
    You’re totally jealous now, aren’t you?!

    Shimmy Shake Shindig,
    Shimmy Shake Shindig,
    My god that’s so totally where I’m taking him Saturday night!

    I have never been to a burlesque and would like to give it a go and take my girl with me!

  11. Laura March 7, 2013 at 8:45 pm #

    Despite the fact that I am a straight female I find burlesque hot! I have a feeling this will blow Dante’s sinferno out of the water.

  12. Kelli March 7, 2013 at 10:40 pm #

    I would love to go to this! Pick me…I’m too broke, otherwise.

  13. Olivia March 8, 2013 at 1:57 am #

    I am a huge fan of burlesque. I have never been to a show and have fond it difficult to get out to a show being a single mom, it’s hard to find time for enjoyable entertainment for adults. I think that this would be perfect for a night out on the town. Have a great time and some great story to tell.

  14. Anne March 8, 2013 at 9:02 am #

    Will there be tassels? I love tassels!

  15. Amrik March 8, 2013 at 9:43 am #

    My wife and I need a date night, the opportunity to get dressed up, out on the town to shake it up, and to enjoy that beautiful shimmying.

  16. Tricia March 8, 2013 at 9:55 am #

    I’m a virgin to Burlesque and would love to see this show!!!!!!!!! Sexy, entertaining, and has a fun title.

  17. Alex March 8, 2013 at 12:36 pm #

    because i never get picked :(

  18. Jamie March 8, 2013 at 12:44 pm #

    I SO want to go to this. I’ve been taking burlesque dance classes for the past few weeks, despite my inability to follow choreography. I would love to get inspired by watching some amazing, saucy ladies throw down the attitude!

  19. Leann March 12, 2013 at 2:39 pm #

    To be honest I could really use some spice in my life and an excuse to get my man out on the dance floor. He never wants to get out unless other sexy ladies are involved.
