Burlesque Ballroom, a popular and highly rated evening full of temptation, dance, timeless glamour, music, interior art and vintage fashion is making a tour round special Rotterdam locations this year.

On Friday July 1st Burlesque Ballroom can be found in the authentic chique atmosphere of hall “Staal”. In the forties and fifties this hall served as a posh meeting room for the Chamber of Commerce. This time it will be the home of international starlets from the world of burlesque. Breath taking ladies who will shine in the lime light.

Lady Redstar (Berlin), Victoria Romanova (Rotterdam), Lady Marmalade (Amsterdam) and Rotterdams own Burlesque superstar Deena Ray are all living out of their suitcase, tons of requests for performances, parts in plays, videoclips and movies. It’s almost too much to handle.

This summer edition of Burlesque Ballroom is part of North Sea around town which makes it an official side program of the North Sea Jazz Festival. As such the choice of jazz and soul is obvious. Main feature of the evening is the 1st of July, is the concert of Si Cranstoun and his band.

Si Cranstoun is a modern original underground superstar originating form the streets of South London. With his explosive sound Si Cranstoun brings back the golden era of rock and roll, when rhythm and blues, jazz and soul were ever so popular in the hit parades. Jackie Wilson and Sam Cooke are Si Cranstouns main inspirations. Just like his heroes, this Londonar is blessed with superior vocals. The born performer Si Cranstoun is just as versatile as the great bandleaders from the past. Besides his phenomanal vocals he also has a highly flamable guitar style, dances and raps on stage lake here is no tomorrow.

With his irresistable life style he’ll win over any audience, everywhere Si Cranstoun performs, the band only needs a few bars to get the crowd dancing and jumping.

Sharon Jones, Eli Paperboy Reed, James Hunter and our own Carol Emerald scored big hits in the past few years with a similar retro style. Si Cranstoun on top of that has something special. His break through into the mainstream seems just a matter of time.

Mose Crowfield and Billy Turf of the Mechanical Musical Marvels will be spinning original 78 rpm records, pre war Jazz, big band Jazz, swing and grand loads of Jazz. During the after party floor fillers will be spinned by the kings of deejays; Dandy Dave the record spinner, who because of tailor bills, is always on the verge of bankrupcy and the biggest womanizer since Casanova Senor Alberto.
