Vaudevisuals interview with Nathan Wakefield – juggler

My 4 days in New Orleans were very productive. I photographed the Southern Sideshow Hootenanny (all 3 shows) and did several wonderful interviews with performers attending/performing at the Hoot. This interview is with juggler Nathan Wakefield from Michigan. His act was with cigar boxes and clever knot tying with one hand. He is currently researching and writing the definitive book on Sideshow ‘Geek’ acts throughout history. Check out the interview!

Vaudevisuals interview with Stephon Walker

I had a great time interviewing Stephon at the Southern Sideshow Hootenanny in New Orleans. His personal demeanor was charming and very informative for the interview. His characters are funny and certainly eccentric!

Southern Sideshow Hootenanny Benefit in NYC – @BeautyBarNYC

Once a Year in New Orleans… a unique gathering of special people occurs!

Southern Sideshow Hootenanny

To help raise funds for next year’s SSH event (The Lady Aye is a Board Member of SSH) NYC organized a special night @The Beauty Bar on 14th Street. The lineup was terrific and the torrential rain storm didn’t stop those of us that wanted to attend!

Here are some visuals in case you missed the event.

Hosting the evenings talent and festivities was The Lady Aye.

Mike Zohn showed off 2 antique panels from a magician’s cabinet probably used in the 1920’s.

Rob Romeo  showed his ‘nail shoes’ and then demonstrated for the audience.

Matt Knife showed off his ‘nut sack’ and ‘other things’ during his boylesque act.

His costume was amazing and his stage presence hysterical.

The Lady Aye performed a classic sideshow act ‘the human blockhead’ but used silverware!

Betsy Propane heated up the room with her wonderful singing and straight jacket escape.

To cap off the show Gin Minsky tap danced and revealed a few things that delighted the audience.

In between the acts a lovely hostess sold ‘Raffle’ tickets for many prizes that were rewarded to the audience near the end of the evening.

Here is a video excerpt from Rob Romeo’s act!
