The Jitterbug's Juke Joint
Presented by Red Bennies in association with The Hoodoo Emporium
The Hoodoo Emporium (creators of The Jitterbug Club & Exotica!) have returned to bring you a show even more raw than you've seen them before.
This time they take you straight to the heart of the blues. With special guests Kira Puru & The Bruise who are fierce, fiery and down right fucking sexy, Archer, the mysterious blues man of Bendigo and that lady who leaves all things smoldering in her wake... Frankie Valentine. Plus! none other than Frankie Alibi, Lead man of 'the Fugitives' - (that 12 piece Rhythm & Blues band you keep hearing about) spinning the finest of his Jump Jive collection.
"Throw in a couple of alligators and Jon Voigt, maybe a banjo or two and a slow crawl of a river, and you could be right back in the speakeasies of the Bayous" - artshub.com.au
KIRA PURU & THE BRUISE
Kira Puru & the Bruise are fierce, fiery and down right fucking sexy.And don't think you're tough enough to walk away unscathed.
A riot of guitar licks that will actually take your clothes off for you, there ain't no point in trying to resist.
A rhythm section that's gonna get so far under your skin, you won't be able to tell it from your own pulse.
And a voice that's like a vice, it's gonna talk dirty to you and then whisper sweet nothings in your ear.
It's gonna make love to you and then throw you out in the street with nothin' but your socks on, will pull the rug from under you, it's going to make you ache. But if God didn't want you to feel dirty, then this band wouldn't exist.
They're cooler than indie. Darker than the blues. And catchier than Herpes.
Burlesque performer, vintage costumer and all around femme fatale, Frankie Valentine, sets old time glamour on fire with a signature sensuality that has all things smoldering in her wake. Frankie perfects the classic art of the strip tease with a personal and contemporary approach to burlesque, which has seen her gracing stages around the country with her innovative character based routines.
Wild, inspired and criminally seductive.
