Making friends is amazing, it gives you people to collaborate with and grow as a person and as a troupe. We as a troupe were given an awesome opportunity by one of band friends: The Velveteen Band!
This band is awesome! They have instruments! They do covers and originals! They defy genre! They have puppets! And their front runner is a GIANT BUNNY known as The Baron Von Velveteen!
They invited us to come open for them in Ventura, CA at the Bombay Bar & Grill for the first Friday of the month of April. We couldn't have asked for a nicer band to host and a more fabulous audience to perform for! Selia, Igor, Nicolai, and Eve Riot drove down to Ventura and performed with acroyoga skits, fan dances, hooping, poi, and contact juggling. The audience was engaged with our tricks and had a great time recording us!
We definitely want to return to perform with TVB & at the Bombay Bar and Grill. Our plan is next time to see if we can bring some of our apparatus to get into the air or score some more stage space to do some burlesque!
Footage to come soon, stay tuned!
