Hailed as one of the most important shows youll see all year by Quilt Magazine, Jeezys Juke Joint is a jumping, jiving, foot-stomping revue that pays homage to Black burlesque and variety with a fabulous line-up of award-winning, show-stopping entertainment. Ranging from classic striptease to drag to comedy and everything in between, this popular yearly extravaganza event is sure to leave you on the edge of your seat!
Hosted by Jeez Loueez and featuring established and up and coming performers from around the country, each production of Jeezys 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 beautiful and subversive art of burlesque to audiences of color.

What’s a showgirl with three two many talents to do? It’s no secret that international burlesque superstar, Jeez Loueez, adds memorable character, sensational sex appeal, and non-stop antics to any production she’s a part of, BUT can she do it alone?! Forced to live in the shadows of the mediocre and the forgettable, this salty meaty siren is ready to forge her own path from the blackground to the limelight!
See Jeez: Dance! Tap! Rap! Strip! Tell jokes! Reenact real life events! Share her confessions of a cross country slut! Pretend to play the piano! Get by on the accordion! And disturb you with a harmonica! Do we know if any of these things will actually happen? Of course not!
In addition to experiencing this one woman shit show, you’ll hear exclusive interviews with those who knew her when such as Lola Van Jeez, Mama Loueez, and more.
Show-Me Burlesque is a 3 day festival dedicated to glitz, glam, breathtaking talent, spectacular productions, and fabulous burlesque, vaudeville, circus, and variety entertainment from every gender and from around the world!
St. Louis has a rich and diverse burlesque and vaudeville history from the brilliant talent of Josephine Baker, to the heyday of Gaslight Square, where The Smothers Brothers, Phyllis Diller and Barbara Streisand got their start, and to Evelyn West and the infamous Stardust and Grand Burlesque theaters where she and many other famous burlesque dancers performed. Show-Me Burlesque is thrilled to bring St. Louis burlesque to its former grandeur with a sexy new makeover.
Lola van Ella, St. Louis’ own award winning burlesque grand dame and passionate producer, along with an amazing creative and technical team, is proud to bring all of her favorite elements of theater, spectacle, glamour, and vaudeville, to showcase the best talent in the world in what is Missouri’s first ever burlesque festival and now, the largest of its kind in the Midwest. In addition to four different shows, there will also be classes taught by world class burlesque educators at Van Ella Studios, St. Louis’ first and only boutique burlesque and variety school, and Mynx Academy of Pole Dance.

I am still in awe and extremely honored to be recognized for my efforts over the last year. Thank you to all of the producers who’ve given me a chance, to the talented folks I’ve shared stages and backstage moments with, to the photographers who’ve captured those moments, and to the audience members who’ve spent their evenings in this magical insane burlesque world time and time again. Thank you for sharing your love and joy with me. I look forward to an even bigger and better 2015!
Yay, new year blah blah blah! Seriously though, going over the events of this year and it has been full of ups and downs. I accomplished so many goals, traveled to new places, won a new title, created new acts, sang new songs, and met fabulous new people. Sometimes I really can’t believe how many adventures this life takes me on. Thank you all for being so supportive, encouraging, and engaging over the years. The accomplishments wouldn’t be possible without your love!
