This being December, they've got a special holiday show planned! Not only will there be 16 showgirls in that intimate club, but they'll be premiering a their new act "Santa Does the Mambo!" It's a relatively small club, so get there early to get a good seat from which to view the Feathers.

More About Burlesque N Brass:
Dubbed "the coolest jazz brass band in Northern California" by the San Francisco Chronicle, Oakland-based Blue Bone Express exposes the Bay Area to a type of jazz rarely heard beyond the Mississippi Delta. Combined with award-winning Hot Pink Feathers’ World Carnaval Cabaret dance, this explosive cabaret performance fuses music and dance traditions spanning the early-1900's New Orleans parades to the showgirl plumage of 1950's Rio de Janeiro Carnaval, the culture-clash hilarity of the '70s and '80s, and pushing through the present-day post-modern meltdown that is downtown Oakland.

“If you've never had the pleasure of seeing burlesque dancing performed to live jazz, then this is the place to start. It's like slugging down a pint of Uncle Peppy's moonshine after ten years of Nestea. It's sexy, spunky, sassy retro fun with all the heart and soul of Rio de Janeiro and the French Quarter, right there in downtown Oaktown. If you're looking for the perfect date, the perfect diversion, or just a chance to see an eminently sexy group of gifted hoofers grinding to hot jazz played by true enthusiasts, order a whiskey sour and settle into your seat for one of the best evenings the Bay Area has to offer.” --Thomas Roche for

In other Feathers news, Feather Kellita will be performing two solo acts at next Friday's Barbary Coast Burlesque show at Impala in North Beach (see the calendar above for details).

The Feathers will also be performing at A Very Shut-Ins Christmas with The Misisipi Rider Night time Honky tonk Band, which will be at Amnesia in San Francisco, 853 Valencia (map), on December 16 at 9:00 p.m. The cover for that show will be $5.00, and I do believe it's a 21 and older venue.

Also, their "Crafting the Solo" workshop has been rescheduled to January 6. Please visit for more information about the troupe, their shows, and their classes!
