3/31/17 – A Chuck Berry Tribute

At Elysium, we respect and honor the great musicians that gave us the music we dance to and Friday was no exception.  This show was in honor of Chuck Berry and we had an eclectic collection of dances to showcase his music.

The crowd was gathering, greeted by Jilley and Paul as Gunner was spinning his awesome tunes.  We were all furiously caching our sets, checking the costumes and attempting to bribe or drive out all the SL gremlins for the evening.

Babypea w/ Gunner, Wiz and FT – Chuck Berry – Shake, Rattle and Roll

Empire 3-31-17_007

The opening act for the night was Baby and crew in a rollicking fun dance.  Shimmying with each man in turn and making her way through the house, I think we were all a bit jealous that we didn’t have 3 sexy men at home to party with.  Baby chose this song because, “I love this song.  It is so upbeat and rowdy and fun.  It is a classic, one of his most well-known songs, and we can’t have a Chuck Berry show without this song.  I love the energy of it!”  We were definitely energized by the end.

Luna w/ CC – Chuck Berry – Nadine

Empire 3-30-31-17 (32)

Next, Luna and CC took us on a romp through town.  From the set to the cute costumes and her choice of choreo, we were transported back to the 50s and immersed.  I really enjoyed the fact the scene kept changing culminating with a terrific groove inside the quintessential pink car.  A very fun and entertaining number.

Corri – Chuck Berry – School Days

Empire 3-31-17_033

The third performance featured Corri giving us a joyful dance in celebration of our times in high school.  Moving from classroom to local soda shop, I think we all had flashbacks of football games, homecoming dances and hanging out with friends.  Corri had on a costume with a sexy and short poodle skirt that would have had any guy offering to escort her home.

Gracie w/ Nara and Tristan – Chuck Berry – Maybellene

Empire 3-31-17_042

In this performance, Gracie and Nara gave us a spirited dance with Tristan in the role of Chuck Berry.  Gracie tells us, “I chose this song because it made me laugh. The thought of someone chasing or racing rather their cheating girlfriend was funny to me.  As I researched  this song I discovered that Maybellene is a cow from a book when he was in school. So I just had to do this song because it showcased his sense of humor.”  She definitely left us all with a smile.

Kyshra w/ Baby, Queenie, Rhonda, Gunner, Zach, Ame and Tristan – Chuck Berry  – My Ding-a-Ling

Empire 3-30-31-17 (2)

Kyshra chose one of Chuck Berry’s most funny and well known songs to celebrate his life with.  On a stage full of bells, we danced to animations not often used for dance and they were perfect for this music.  When asked how she settled on this particular song, she says, ” I was trying to decide on a piece of music when I ran across My Ding-A-Ling and the ideas for how to do the set and choreography just started to flow.”  This was another act showcasing Chuck’s varied style.

Jilley w/Baby and Rhonda – Chuck Berry – Blues for Hawaiians

Empire 3-30-31-17 (72)

The final performance of the evening was Jilley and her girls were sexy hula dancers in a beautiful tropical setting transporting us straight to Hawaii.  Jilley chose this music since it was different from the norm and immediately spoke to her.  The movement was lovely and perfectly timed as Jilley is known for.  As she said, a nice mellow dance that was fun to make.

Ame – Crowd Dance – Chuck Berry – Roll Over Beethoven, Carol and You Can’t Catch Me

Empire 3-30-31-17 (47)

At the end of our shows, we offer our crowd dance to the audience in appreciation and thanks for their continued support.  We invite everyone to come up with us for their time in the spotlight as well.  The 3 songs I chose were quick and lively to get everyone moving.  It was a great close to a great show.

Thank you for joining us for a wonderful night of dance and fellowship with like minds.

Please join us next week and every Friday at 6pm for another inspired show.

Tonight! Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day at LEA7 Fortunate Sons

My husband was sent to Vietnam two days after his 18th birthday.  I look now at my 16 year old daughter, I look at her classmates, and all I can think is, he was just a baby.  The average age of a soldier in Vietnam was 19.  I can’t imagine being in a war at that age.  My husband was 19 when he returned home from Vietnam.  When he stepped off the ship, he was greeted by an angry mob of Americans who called him a baby-killer.  One of them threw a bag of dog shit at him and hit him in the head with it.

He went through hell in Vietnam.   He saw things and suffered things most people will never have to experience, because their freedom was protected by my husband and thousands of other people like him.  Our Veterans have fought for freedom over the centuries in one war or another.  Vietnam Veterans received no hero’s welcome when they returned home.

March 30th is Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day.  The Outsiders will pay their respects to this noble celebration of gratitude to those who sacrificed and served, with a dance show.  Thursday, March 30th at 6pm SLT on the LEA7 Fortunate Sons sim.  We hope you will come out to show respect and gratitude to our Vietnam Veterans.

March 24, 2017 Show

It was another Friday night in The Empire Room as Elysium Cabaret took to the stage to help frams welcome in the weekend!  Friends and family gathered as DJ Gunner warmed everyone up with fabulous tunes.  Paul and Jilley greeted our cherished guests.  Backstage, makeup and feathers, sequins and hairspray were going all over the dressing room as dancers prepared to perform.  We could already tell, it was going to be a very good night indeed as the Black Eyed Peas introduced the show with “I Gotta Feeling.”

    

Lulu with Candy, Angie, Babypea and Jilley
Firedance – Edit

Lulu opened the show with a fabulous interpretation of the Village People’s “YMCA.”  Her mover work on this dance was superb, as dancers entered the set from different places at different times.  I got to slide down a lamp post and then pole dance on it.  The choreo was hawt and the dancers sexeh!

==========================================

 

 
Storm with Liriel
The Music of the Night – Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera

Storm brought us an ethereal visit to a much-loved classic.  The set was enchanting and the dancers passionate with choreo that went from singles animations to romantic couples dances, the duet moving together in swirls of black and white, until he laid Liri into a boat that floating off and sank in a bittersweet ending.

==========================================

   

Angie with Candy, Baby and Jilley
Bad romance

RAWR!  This was one smoakn hawt sexy dance!  And the costumes these girls wore… yowza!  Intricate mover work, perfectly timed choreo, and a dazzling set gave the audience non-stop exciting visual stimulation.  Look at all those cute little butts!  The set was dazzling.  I can’t wait to see what Angie does next!
==========================================

Corri with Paul and FT
Devil Doll – Queen of Pain

Only one word can adequately describe this dance: decadent.  It just oozed with sensual wealth.  The rich purple set, the uber sexy dancers, and enticing costumes gave the eyes a feast that Lady Godiva would envy.  And Corri!  OMG hawtness!  Flanked by shirtless men in leather pants and masks, with whips in their hands, it was a most pleasurable pain!

==========================================

Jilley with Baby and Dream
Neutron Dance – The Pointer Sisters

I love Jilley’s entrance in this dance.  Starting out in the audience and dancing up a walkway to a stage full of color and sparkles, and brilliant lighting, wearing a sexy costume with the most fabulous hair style, it was another example of Jilley’s artistic eye for flair and style.  Then out came two more dancers, energetic choreo and a song that got the entire audience bouncing in their RL seats.  What a heap of fun!

==========================================

    
Candy with Aռɢɨɛ (angellikamaia) and LυLυ ƛƦƖƧƬƠƇƦƛƬ
Rihanna – Power it up

Don’t you love this?  What a set!  Mysterious and rich, gold and black classic with crystal chandeliers and wisps of smoke, and super sexy dancers draped in black pearls!  Candy gave new meaning to the phrase “eye candy” and there was plenty of that in this complex dance that utilised excellent mover work and choreo.  This set was a mirror set and cleverly done, giving the illusion of a mirrored floor.  So incredibly!

Babypea with Gunner, BB, Pan and Wiz
SKRILLEX – Kill EVERYBODY

Okay.  So.  I was a robot who had a bad attitude and wanted to kill all the humans so I could take over.  The top of the floating steampunk laboratory lifted to reveal me as I was being released from having been freshly charged.  The lab then dropped and up rose a giant fan that I floated down to dance on.  I was joined by a rusty junkbot who split into two then four, and the five of us danced our fury and plans to rule the world!

==========================================

Immy and EVERYONE!
Robin Skouteris – ROCK THIS!
Robin Skouteris – If You Kiss Jesus
Robin Skouteris – One Hell Or Another

YAY IMMY!  She made the most awesome set that looked like a giant jukebox.  All these people and their clever crowd dances!  Mine are so boring in comparison.  And the songs she picked were all mashups, so the crowd got a long super fun round of stage dancing from it.  Everyone had the best time!  Thank you Immy for dancing us!

And thanks to our wonderful audience for coming out to share creative expression of music though dance with us!  Thank you to all the choreographers for using their time and lindens to create dances to share, and thank you to all our dancers and staff for all you do to make these shows each week.  Love and light to Elysiums!  This is why we do it… to share and bond with one another, and socialise with kindred spirits.

A special THANK YOU to Web Sass for the pictures of this show!  And to Crap Mariner for the pictures of my dance, Skrillex’s “Kill Everybody.”

The Annual Milky Way Cabaret at SL 2017 Sci Fi Convention for RFL

It’s that time again, time for this year’s Milky Way Cabaret. This family-friendly series of shows (PG-13) are one of the most popular features of the annual Sci Fi Convention. The Sci Fi Convention is a flagship RFL (Relay For Life) event and the Milky Way Cabaret is a major part of that effort.

Each year has a theme that drives the sim designs and, to some extent, the exhibitor’s booth design. Where this event differs from most large RFL events is that it is not primarily focused on retail. This is a true fan-focused experience. This year’s convention theme is “Elements” (Earth, Fire, Water, Sky, NOT periodic table. lol).

Milky Way Cabaret began in 2013 as a small novelty show at the request of one of the organizers of the Second Life Science Fiction Convention. 2017 is looking to be our biggest and best year ever. We have been given an entire sim to utilize. We would be honored to have you join us.
SHOW SCHEDULE:

Friday 3/24 –
22:00 (10 PM)

Saturday 3/25 –
12:00 (Noon)
19:00 (7 PM)

Sunday 3/26 –
