We’ve expanded our yearly extravaganza to 3 nights due to demand, we’ve accepted more applicants than ever before, and over the years we’ve played successful shows in Indianapolis, Nashville, St. Louis, and Iowa City.  This years festival is March 14th-16th and takes place at VAM Studio and our home venue The Promontory in Hyde Park. www.jeezysjukejoint.com

As you can see the Juke Joint has been busy and we are only going harder! It’s been a dream of mine for this show to grow and expand and tour. Each year we continue taking it to the next level and want to focus on spreading the good word of Black burlesque around the country. We want to continue working with impressive  newcomers and iconic legends in the making. We want to raise the bar each year offering higher production value, and more VIP and cast incentives. Each production of Jeezy’s Juke Joint is finely curated into a diverse and rich line-up full of glamour, storytelling, and thought-provoking pieces. Affectionately called the “family reunion of burlesque”, the Juke Joint strives to not only showcase the power and diversity of Black entertainers, but to also bring the powerful and subversive art of burlesque to audiences of color.

Funds raised will be used for:
-Travel and lodging for guests
-Backstage hospitality for the cast
-Venue rental
-Marketing and advertisement (poster printing, online ads)
-Photography and Videographer costs
-Studio rental deposits for workshops and classes taught by our cast
-Upgrading our merch options
-Swag bags for  cast and VIP ticket holders

*New Video* Big Ass Boa- Jeez Loueez- Minneapolis Burlesque Fest

Minneapolis truly is another home away from home and I was so thrilled to be a special guest at the Minneapolis Burlesque Festival this past October. Three nights of INCREDIBLY diverse talent, backstage commradery, and of course the legendary late night burlesque after-party shenanigans (I DONT WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT- THERE ARE STILL SCARS…LITERALLY). I had the honor of performing my latest piece as well as dancing with The Fringe Factor, spearheaded by Chicago choreographer Lindsey Marks | Lady Jack, AND whoop it up with Foxy Tann and the Wham Bam Thank You Ma’am’s. A full weekend that left me glittery and hungover indeed! ENJOY! xo
