July 13 and August 10, 2017
“I moved into the darkest corner of the opium den, my safe words left at the door. No rules. Just my scars and her movement, both tangled in Blue Velvet.”
Blue Velvet is a blues/rock live band burlesque experience. Every show is completely different. There are no set lists, no choreography, and no rules. It is a complete experimental movement dwelling in raw emotion, and passionate collaboration between dancers and band. And, the audience becomes a part of this nature. It’s dark, it’s sexy, and it’s uncontrolled.
Blue Velvet opened on March 23, 2016 at Bar Lubitsch.
Produced by Olivia Bellafontaine.
Featuring Live Music by Dave Cavalier Trio.

What people are saying about Blue Velvet…
“To try and describe this show is both impossible and an insult in itself. Every bit ethereal and electrifying. Perfect fragmented moments drifting across precarious yet calculated live music, before climaxing and leaving you at the edge of a dream. Shaken, but mystified.” -Daniel S.
“Outstanding job! Olivia took two of my favorite things, beautiful women and the blues, and made them even better together. Olivia and Donna are especially transcendent.” – TJ M.
“Heavy, sleazy, out of control Zeppelin-esque blues jams + sexy, dark, mystical, psychedelic seductresses, what else do you need to know?” – Ravin C.
“Blue Velvet is never the same thing twice. The band will rock you and the dancers will roll you. Your recovery time will improve the more you go!” – Marc S.
“A deep psychedelic blues infused jam session rock and rolls at the pace of beautiful dancing sirens who will steal your heart to leave you only wanting more. Attend with caution.” – Paul H.
