Put on your pasties and step right up for a never-before-seen performance where vintage, vaudeville burlesque meets the King of Rock and Roll. Tomorrow night, just five days after the 33rd anniversary of Elvis Presley's death, local striptease troupe Shameless Burlesque and Presley imitator Randy "Elvis" Walker will pay horny homage to the most influential rockabilly singer of all time. As Walker says, it's all about reminding the world that Elvis isn't dead and that "his flame of life forever burns in their hearts."
It's now or never. Turn your lonesome night around with The Shameless Burlesque's Elvis Tribute at the Vagabond, where scantily clad ladies will get all shook up to remind you the King lives on. You'll have to bring your own fried banana and peanut butter sandwiches, though.
Expect an unforgettable evening full of glitz, garters, and hair grease. For starters, Ms. Holly Peño will be there. The raven-haired babe began her career at Eve's Parlor Burlesque in Chicago before moving to Miami and deciding to start an ensemble with "an old-school vaudeville speakeasy vibe." Thus, the Shameless Burlesque was born.
Then you've got Randy "Elvis" Walker, whose voice is so strikingly similar to Presley's that he can't talk in public without being showered in old lady panties. In fact, he's the only Presley tribute artist to ever perform at the famous Club Tropigala at the Fontainebleau Hotel, on the same stage that Presley himself once shared with Sinatra.
Now slip on your sequined jumpsuit and practice your karate kicks. The King is calling your name.
