Bailey Dee and Her Late Night Bait

Chicago’s lead rhythm and blues screamer Bailey Dee found the rock and roll handbook and reads it right! Reminding many of Big Mama Thornton, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and Etta James, with Howlin’ Wolf in the band. A full band backs her featuring members of legendary R&B Chicagoan Andre Williams band and ex-Million Dollar Quartet.

They’re students of the Chicago blues scene with a nod to the classics, and a soft spot for tone.


Midnite Martini (Miss Exotic World 2014)

 Midnite Martini, “The Mile High Flying Tease” and “The Great Burlesque Exposition’s Best Soloist” has always been drawn to the stage. This cool drink was born in Seoul, South Korea and adopted into a loving family in Littleton, Colorado where she grew up. Starting out as a figure skater, Midnite realized that martinis are better served off ice and moved to dry land. There she trained in classic dance and performed in community musical theatre.

 Currenlty Midnite is a hot up and coming performer to watch out for in the new-burlesque scene. She’s headlined and performed for Viva Dallas Burlesque, 5280 Magazine, Denver PrideFest, Opulent Temple Burning Man, Jose Cuervo, Fortune Valley Casino, Kevin Larson Presents, BETA, The Democratic National Convention, 303 Magazine, and many more!

 Midnite also joined forces with Lola Spitfire, Fannie Spankings, Honey Touche, and Bunny Bee to produce the Colorado Burlesque Festival (CBF)! Bringing in international burlesque headliners and featuring the best local and national talent the festival has been a sold out hit! This year save the date, July 7th-10th CBF has 5 amazing shows, 130 different performers, 4 incredible venues, 6 classes taught by the headliners, and 1 weekend you don’t want to miss!

 In 2003 Midnite attended UNC to study musical theatre dance. Turned off by the cut throat environment and negative body images that came with this world, Midnite changed her studies to psychology at CU Boulder and looked for another creative outlet.

 In 2005, she found that outlet and took to the air becoming a proud member of Frequent Flyers Productions (FFP), an aerial dance company based out of Boulder, CO. She has also trained with Fred Deb, Cirque du Soliel’s Gemini Twins Nimble Arts, & Aircat Aerial Arts. With FFP Midnite has had the honor of performing at The Atlantis Resort – Bahamas, The Eccles Center – Park City, UT, and the Denver Center for the Performing Arts .

 Also in 2005 Midnite began her journey into the art of burlesque. In this new performance world where every woman was welcome and creativity was never limited Midnite found a home. Combining her dance and aerial training with burlesque, Midnite’s style is described as aerial/acro burlesque! She’s teased and titillated performing at events such as Burlesque Hall of Fame , The Best of Midwest Burlesk, The Great Burlesque Exposition, New York Burlesque Festival, Tiki Oasis, Tease-O-Rama, and more!

 You can see more of Midnite’s and read her story which is featured in the book Burlesque: the True Art of Seduction or in an interview done by Pin Curl Magazine

Jenn O’cide

There are few figures in the colorful lexicon of Vegas legends as iconic and imposing as self-proclaimed “Professional Weirdo” Jenn O. Cide. Her very presence – towering, tattooed, pierced and sweetly menacing – commands your attention and her amazing array of unique talents make her impossible to ignore.

 She can breathe fire, belly dance and eat broken glass. She has a degree in audio production, has MC’d for Motley Crue and has broken her back … twice. She’s the creator of two instructional DVD’s on performance and runs a successful Sideshow talent agency. She’s managed world tours for headlining acts, designed and managed attractions at Eli Roth’s Goretorium and even had pages from a novel stapled to her body to promote a book release. If it’s shocking, if it’s compelling, if it’s ENTERTAINING Jenn O. Cide is all in. When she enters a room, it’s hers, and if you’re lucky you’ll see things you’ll remember for the rest of your life. Here is what P Moss, author, musician, Double Down Saloon owner and a Vegas icon in his own right, had to say: “Jenn starts her day by eating broken glass and stapling the morning paper to her forehead. She is a comedic genius and ringmaster of the circus of the absurd; a true American treasure.”

 Many have been conceived in Las Vegas but few are actually born and raised here. Jenn O. Cide is a native in every sense of the word. Reared in a world where you are either entertaining or irrelevant, Jenn began interning at the historic Huntridge Theatre at the age of 12. Curious by nature, she wanted to learn the art of live sound engineering. To Jenn the opportunity to work with touring bands, play with all the cool technical toys, travel the world, and even get paid for it was the epitome of the American Dream. She studied with the best, did the work no one else wanted to do and became an enigmatic fixture in Las Vegas entertainment as a result.

Jellyboy T. Clown & Matterz : The Squidling Brothers!

Offering a Edgy and Humor-filled Twist on the Classic American Sideshows of the Early 20th Century, Brothers “Matterz Squidling” and “Jelly Boy the Clown” Have Created an International Sensation with a Dare-Devilish Mix of Music, Freak Show, Dancing, Unusual Sword Swallowing, Aerial, Burlesque and
Body Modification

 The Squidlings Perform Across the U.S. And Europe at Carnivals, Festivals, Bars, Squats, and Large Theaters.

 The two Philadelphia-based brothers “Jelly Boy The Clown” (Living Cartoon and Natural-Born Weirdo) and “Matterz Squidling” (The Impenetrable Music Man) stepped right up in 2007 to create The Squidling Bros. Circus Sideshow. Putting a comic and dare-devilish spin on the classic American Sideshows of the early 20th century.

 A few acts you can expect to see are fire breathing, a man walking up a ladder of machetes barefoot and jumping into a pile of broken glass without a scratch! “Unusual sword swallowing,” which involves shooting fireworks out of a sword or shooting a jet of flame out of the handle! Syringe needles pierced through various parts of the body. A large metal anchor spun by pierced ear lobes. Nail beds, humans and chickens stacked together in a delicate balance.

 While Jelly Boy describes their first tours as “throwing everything in a few bags and boxes and hitting the road, flying, taking the train, whatever it took to get there,” they’ve since evolved into a must see sensation. Over the past few years, the Squidling Bros. Circus Sideshow have performed with Primus, Exploited and Circus Contraption. They have appeared at the Bohemian Carnival with the Vau De Vire Society, The Coney Island Rockabilly Festival 2008-10, The World Steam Punk Expo Detroit 2010, Opatijske Barufe 2011 in Croatia, Theatre Bizarre 2009-12 and The Amsterdam Tattoo Museum in 2012.

Musician, producer, remix artist, DJ, carny and ringmaster – Vourteque entertains and wows crowd from Los Angeles to New York. He’s one of the minds behind Chicago’s Rouge! electro swing night, a Do312 nightlife awards nominated monthly that’s featured guests such as Good Co., Lord Justice and Dutty Moonshine.

 Vourteque’s sound can best be described as a cross behind the more house and disco influenced European style of electro swing but injected with a good dose of good ol’ American industrial, techno and gothic blues. His single, Whiskey Drinker, has gotten acclaim and plays throughout the internet, and his first release, The Swing Mechanical, still sells robustly two years out and can be found on Amazon, iTunes, Spotify, Beatport and more.

Gaea Lady

Gaea Lady has been moving in mysterious ways since she was 3 years old, and hasn’t ever given it up. An enchantress by nature, she sees her body as her instrument to express herself. Studying classical forms to start her career, her attention soon went the way of the ethereal including fire, hoops and hypnotizing fabrics. Dabbling amid any form she can get her toes on, her style borrows from the graceful and energetic mix of all she’s studied in the past. Featured in the Naughty Little Cabaret, the Kiss Kiss Cabaret, at Untitled’s Unbridled, and spinning fire with Pyrotechniq Fire troupe, she also tours the US performing and teaching as much as she can. Become enchanted.

Mr. Automatic

Mr. Automatic is a Chicago-based Electroswing DJ. He also is the owner/operator of Dead 2 Me Records, a Neo-Vintage and Retro label out of Chicago. His style has its origins in Electro and Nu Disco, although recently his jazz roots have come to the forefront as he has started fusing these genres with Electro Swing. Along with Vourteque and performance artist Lady Lenux, he formed the successful Rouge! Chicago’s Electro Swing Night in late 2013. He also currently holds down a residency at Untitled’s Unbridled night in downtown Chicago. He has opened for a wide range of acts including Lord Justice, Good Co., Lady Miss Kier, Dutty Moonshine, Tycho, and Plastic Plates.
