Hey there hepcats and hipsters,
You are cordially invited to join us at The Vegas Grand Hogmanay Ball at the Voodoo Rooms!
We’ll say farewell to 2019, and welcome in 2020, with the hippest, hottest party anywhere in this or any other town.
We’ve heard Saturn’s swingin’ and Jupiter’s jumpin’ at this time of year, but the Voodoo Rooms right here on good ol’ Planet Earth is the place to be in the inter-planetary party stakes at Hogmanay.
What’s in store for you cool cats and kittens? Nothing less than a scintillating soiree of showgirls & sophistication; cocktails & cool; blackjack & burlesque; glitz & glamour; roulette & romance; moonlight & martinis; hedonism & hi-jinks; champagne and cabaret; vivaciousness & va-va-voom. Add a twist of sophistication, a shot of JFK's Camelot-era cool, a sprinkling of Rat Pack razzmatazz, a killer line-up of DJs, MCs, burlesque artists, cabaret performers and live musicians, and of course, the most important ingredient - yourselves – and you have the intoxicating confection that is The Vegas Hogmanay Ball!
We’re taking over every nook and cranny of the wonderful Voodoo Rooms once more, Edinburgh’s foremost salon of entertainment. The Ballroom, Speakeasy, American bar, French Quarter, Main Bar and Restaurant provide ideal environments and intimate hideaways for dancing and romancing, carousing and celebrating, dining and imbibing in style as we say farewell to 2019 in this glamorous, opulent and decadent setting.
It is a true pleasure to welcome back to the Vegas stage, by popular acclaim, for the sixth year in succession, the incandescent star of La Clique and numerous Fringe headline shows, sultry chanteuse Becc Sanderson and her great band, The Counsellors. These cats know just how to ignite the Vegas dancefloor with their classic lounge, jazz and pop stylings: smooth, tart, with a twist of kitsch and a kicker of mischief. With fabulously playful arrangements of classic pop standards from the last 50 years (Gnarls Barkley, Dusty Springfield, Nancy Sinatra et al.), Becc Sanderson and The Counsellors are set to swing your world, all the way into 2020!
And a very warm Vegas welcome to the wonderful Fanciforia Foxglove: one part showgirl, two parts clown and oodles of razzle-dazzle, this foxy flight of fancy is the queen of hamming it, and glamming it. With looks to rival Jayne Mansfield and comic timing to match Lucille Ball, Fanciforia Foxglove flawlessly evokes old hollywood glamour and slapstick comedy with period-perfect style.
This born and raised showgirl is a multi award-winning icon of the New Zealand burlesque industry as the 2015 supreme Grand Tease NZ Champion, winner of Wellington’s Clash of the Stars 2018 and 1st runner up in Miss Burlesque Scotland 2019 - but she now calls Edinburgh her home.
But of course these aren’t the only stellar talents in this Night of a Thousand Stars. Vegas is delighted to welcome back the wonderful, the fabulous, the sensational…Pete Sinclair, crooner extraordinaire. A regular festival Fringe favourite at the Voodoo Rooms, Pete’s Rat Pack credentials are impeccable - his smooth vocal stylings will transport you back in time to the Copa Room at the Sands Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas in 1966, The Chairman of the Board on stage with Count Basie’s band swingin’, guaranteeing you a ring-a-dingin’ good time!
As if this wasn’t enough to make anyone Hogmanay party go with a bang, we have even more in store. Gasp and delight at Edinburgh’s own tantalising temptress and hostess with the mostest, Gypsy Charms, hostess and prime mover of The Voodoo Rooms Fringe sensation Illicit Thrill, who will delight and dazzle with her glamorous gyrations and terpsichorean talents; laugh with homegrown comedy sensation Bruce Devlin, and the inimitable talents of Sir Lance O’Lust. The Vegas Cabaret and Burlesque Revue will showcase the best in cabaret and burlesque talent in The Speakeasy (with an hour long show from 10.30 pm).
There will be dancing into the wee sma’ hours to the exotic rhythms, intoxicating melodies and irresistible dance-floor grooves of Vegas musical maestros Frankie Sumatra, Bugsy Seagull and Sam Jose.
And just in case there wasn’t enough glitz, glamour, razzmatazz and va-va-voom already, Nikki Nevada & the Vegas Showgirls will turn the Fabulousness Factor all the way up to eleven and shake their tail-feathers most delightfully. These sultry sirens combine the sophistication of the salons of Paris with the sassiness of the Vegas strip.
And of course we can’t forget the hustlers, card sharks and wild cards at the Stardust Casino Lounge, presided over by the Fabulous Scott Sisters and located in the French Quarter - a hint of the Big Easy in the heart of Sin City - the only casino where you can gamble the night away at the roulette and blackjack tables without fear of losing your shirt, courtesy of our complimentary Elvis dollars.
A glittering galaxy of stars and heavenly bodies will illuminate the Grand Vegas Hogmanay Ball, but shining brightest of all will be yourselves, the Vegas in-crowd! The coolest cats and kittens in club-land will descend on the Voodoo Rooms for an unforgettable night. So join us at The Vegas Grand Hogmanay Ball. Let’s start 2020 as we mean to go on….with a swingin’, ring-a-dingin’ good time!
