So that’s three bands – four Burlesque beauties & four DJs to complete this sell out night!
Will be kicking off the night with the first of our live sets… Sol Flare are Dom Wood & Sasha Rahkman, a London based Electronica group who formed back in 2012, their music is Melodic Vocal Electronica along the lines of Goldfrapp, Little Dragon, Grimes etc… Who perform a mixture of down and up-tempo music with a very modern feel using vocal loops and FX which creates a very cool live show.
West of the Sun
Is a 6 piece Neo-Psychedelic Rock band from Camden, originally formed in Derby in 2007. They share a love for all things sonically strange, weird and wonderful. With a sound awash with psychedelic guitars, haunting vocal melodies and a distinctive Hammond organ, their music is often likened to that of The Coral, The Doors and The Stone Roses.
Will be finishing up their UK tour at Bands, Burlesque & Beats… Dalston based Molly’s Lipps are six friends fusing ethereal folk melodies with heavy grunge guitars and atmospheric dance synths… a British MGMT with a nod to the clattering Americana of Arcade Fire and the 90s pop licks of Take That.
Joined The Wam Bam Club London team as a resident Showgirl and was crowned Winner or the March Burlesque Idol heat 2012. She was also featured in the film ‘The King of Soho’ which is to be released this year, You can often see Scarlett at Volupte, Wam Bam and Proud Cabaret both as a singer and burlesque dancer. Scarlett’s classic style is delivered with pizzazz, attitude and grace.
Inspired by the classic splendor of early 20th century film stars such as Rita Hayworth and Gene Tierney, the grand opulence…e of Victorian and Gothic architecture and the delicate beauty of nature itself, Ruby’s performances lure you into another world altogether. Ruby is a resident performer at The Wam Bam Club in London’s West End, Cafe de Paris and also teaches burlesque classes in London and the rest of the UK exclusively for Burlesque Baby.

‘Favourite burlesque act of all time’. She’s what burlesque is all about; the embodiment of both humor and sex in a way which exudes class and entertainment – Faye Armstrong, blog.fluidlondon.co.uk/
Brings the heat! As a professional fire performer she’s also trained in Hip Hop, Waacking and Vogue at the Broadway Dance Center in New York. She’s graced the stage with artists such as Lady Gaga, Imelda May and the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and now brings her own brand of spunky exoticism to Bands, Burlesque & Beats and one things for sure she will get you pulse racing!
“With her Fosse body, kitten pout and splendid dance moves she fed the audience love, sex and muffins as she shimmied her way into our hearts” www.thefollymixtures.co.uk
