The other night which is still going but sans burlesque was The Go Go Cage. I also performed here regularly dancing alongside the bands including Doktor Combover, the composers of my amazing Blue Martini music! Their night has now moved into The Cabin Club and have bands playing every first Saturday of the month.
After Strip club ended there was a lack of events, and after talking to the lovely folk at The Royal Court we planned the first ever Martini Lounge for December 2007, a year after I started performing full time. We ran sold out events here every two months from 2007 till 2010 when we moved into a larger venue to cope with demand for tickets!
Now in a weeks time it will be the second show in the new venue, The Epstein Theater. We had the honor of hosting the first event in there since it's reopening after six years closure. It's a truly beautiful venue right in the heart of Liverpool's City Center and it is just perfect for us!
This coming show, Saturday 28th April, will be yet another amazing event, with myself, the wonderful Fred Bear, the beautiful Bijou Noir, the lovely Luna Rosa, amazing skill from Mat Ricardo, and at last, something I've always wanted to feature at the show but has only just become possible, Aerial from Black&Blue!

I've met so many friends through the show and I know so many people who have met via the shows, we even have a Martini Baby...! Tho she didn't call him Martinez like I suggested!
I hope there are many many more years to come for my little show, that has now become one of the biggest in the UK!
