Excellent. They showed up early, were very professional and most of all, put on a fabulously entertaining show. They worked with us when we had inclement weather by changing up the show and being very accommodating. I would hire them again!
Response from Queen April:
Thank you so much for having us! The event was wonderful!

Gig Length: 15 - 90 minutes
What to Expect
Standard burlesque acts are typically 5-7 minutes in length and require at least 10-15 minutes in between for costume changes. I also have specialty acts; fire, fetish, 6ft balloon. Most of my acts are comedic/tongue-in-cheek or slow and sexy and strictly for adults. However, I do have family-friendly-ish 6ft balloon acts.
Fire performances are limited to small torches, hoops, and fans. A second performer can be added for an additional fee and is encouraged when booking performance times longer than 30 minutes.
I am a fire eater, but I do not spit/blow fire balls.
Please note my fire safety person travels with me to all fire bookings.
Event hosting/emceeing - Usually bawdy and playful, lowbrow comedy. Expect a modern version of the classic Vaudeville show host. Please note I have a thick southern accent, of which I am incredibly proud.

Additional Booking Notes
Private dressing room space is required.
6ft balloon acts require a 12ft minimum ceiling height, a large, clean, and debris-free performance area, and a prop staging area large enough to prepare and inflate the balloon.
Fire acts require a clean, well-ventilated performance area. Outside is best, but I will not perform fire in windy conditions. My fire safety person travels with me to all fire bookings.
