The Hoodoo Emporium’s Jitterbug Club is like a late-night underground 1930s jazz club in New York. It’s cheeky and kitsch. The Jitterbeetles wow the crowds with their naughty burlesque, while Mojo-Juju, and the Snake Oil Merchants, inspires the audience with her intoxicating voice and their raw mellowed beats, from the live band.
The MC James Grim is self-indulgent and cheeky, but he entertains the crowd between sets. At one stage a couple dances Salsa in the corner, not part of the show, but they must’ve been wound-up in the atmosphere. About two-thirds through the show the MC gets the part of the audience up on their feet, restricting the view of those behind, annoyingly, creating a disconnect between the audience and the show.
Burlesque performer Lillian Star, amongst others, through her seamless dance set, proves that burlesque is not just about the art of strip tease.
The Jitterbug Club is something different, which is a nice juxtaposition to a ‘regular’ show, but would’ve been good to be able to see the final acts.
