Tonya was the perfect end to our reception. She was entertaining, fun, and very professional. She kept in constant contact with us and accommodated my back and forth on the performance time with grace. We will certainly use her again!
I hired Tonya Kay for my clients Harlem Nights 40th Birthday, and the candy girl was a hit! Not only did she show up dressed in theme, but she was beautiful, attentive to our guests and a lot of fun!!
Tonya Kay and her associate, SaraAnne Fahey, performed at my dream wedding. Not only are they beautiful, they were charming, friendly, and made my guests comfortable. They were very reasonably priced for the time they spent at my wedding and the multitude of services they lent. They took pictures with our guests on our red carpet - adding personality and fun to everyone’s experience; they danced during cocktail hour and taught moves to ages young and old; they did a costume change that was worthy of our very grand, Grand Entrance. Worth every penny! Thank you Tonya and SarahAnne! You were awesome!
Enjoyed having her at my party. My guests loved her. I loved her.
Tonya just freaking rocks! I mean, it goes without saying that she's a wonderful performer, beautiful dancer, super professional, but she went above and beyond, and was SUCH an amazing sport for our very geeky Star Wars-themed bachelor party. She added grace, class and delightful silliness to an absolutely wonderful event.
Tonya was amazing to work with. She was professional and courteous from start to finish. I appreciated how communicative and open to making my birthday special she was. Highly recommended!
Response from Tonya Kay:
Than you so much, Danelle! You threw an amazing party and it was my pleasure to celebrate your birthday, too!
Tonya is the most enthusiastic performer we have ever seen and left our party guests amazed. Thoroughly recommend for a adult evening.
Tonya was truly professional. She was the hit of our party. The guest all complimented on how great she was. I highly recommend her. From swiveling around in the giant Martini glass upon our guest arrival to her white feather burlesque show it was all very classy.
Tonya was fantastic! Would hire her again in s heartbeat!
Tonya was amazing!! Stunning!! All the guest loved her performance!!! All my friends keep talking about how amazing it was! Having Tonya was a pleasure, very sweet and polite!! She was the icing on the cake! Definitely referring her and gigsalad.
I had an idea to hire a burlesque dancer for a dinner party I was throwing for my husband. I found Tonya through gigsalad and I from watching her videos I thought she was fantastic! When she showed up to my home she was so professional we sneaked her in without my husband knowing so she can change to do her first show. We all were so amazed at how beautiful she looked and how graceful she danced we all just loved it. Her second show was her clown act and we truly laughed and enjoyed that playful skit. The party was a hit thanks to Tonya. I would definitley hire her again for my parties!! We will be talking about it for years!! Thank you so much!
We threw my father a 60th Themed Birthday party and needed entertainment. I came across Tonyakay and was excited! Booking was easy and she remained in contact with me before the event. Tonyakay arrived early and performed on time! Lights dimmed, Music was on point and her act was gangster
Tonya Kay was the highlight of an amazing party! She was so fast responding to any questions I had prior to the event. Tonya Kay greatly exceeded my expectations. Not only is she stunningly beautiful, her performance was fantastic! She kept all of my guests talking the entire evening. I was very specific of what I wanted for the event and she went above and beyond to make that happen. I could not have been happier! I still can't believe I was able to find such a wonderful performer! Just truly amazing!!! This was my first time using gigsalad.com and I will definitely be using it in the future!
I had a great experience with Tonya. She was on time, polite and professional. I would certainly recommend!
Response from Tonya Kay:
You were pure professional yourself. It was wonderful working with you!
I have seen Tonya on stage and in some of her films. She is an amazing performer. If you like Burlesque then you will absolutely love Tonya. She gives her whole heart and soul to make sure every performance is perfect. You will not be disappointed.
Tonya's performances are Spellbinding! Each act is a unique expression of creative sensuality worth every dime you spend. Don't be afraid to make special requests! She's always looking for new directions to take her act and she has a multitude of talents to draw from!
I'm very delighted to say I found Tonya Kay on gigsalad for my husbands surprise 40th birthday party. She answered all my questions with detail from beginning to end, her communication was most excellent! Tonya Kay's performance was tasteful and amazingly entertaining!! The birthday boy was super surprised and all the guests loved her. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a wonderful burlesque show that you'll never forget!

Queen of Burlesque (Los Angeles Neo Noir Film Festival)
“The stand-out dancer and star-performer was Tonya Kay who does a power-tool number with all the comedic timing and sexual innuendo possible - and brings some of the most classic and innovative ideas to her several acts. She has an amazing body that one works for, and it shows. Even if you are a die-hard neo-burlesque or classic burlesque purist, you will love what you see in Tonya Kay.” -Frankie Tease Magazine
