Seeking:Velvet is a nightclub and a state of mind – a fantasy. Inspired by Studio 54, a club famous for its wild parties and hedonism but also for its culture of acceptance – blind to color, creed, class, gender, size, shape, sexuality. Velvet is a celebration of that freedom. It is a party, it’s dangerous, it’s electrifying, and it’s exhilarating disco soundtrack never lets up from the opening moment. Each performance invites the audience into an intoxicating glitter ball world where the performers and the audience walk the fine line between the romantic and the audacious. ‘VELVET’ is a fantastic sensory overload – funky, fresh, fun and sexy. SEEKING- The Sirens (Commercial Back-up Singer/Dancers): Any Ethnicity. 18-30s. Two extremely sexy, and alluring young women who entice Country Mike into Velvet and encourage him to head further into the night. Rarely off the stage, these commanding vixens deliver a showstopper all by themselves midway throughout the night. Large scale venue or concert style backup dancer/vocalist experience preferred. Equally proficient in both disciplines, superior performance skill, and stage presence with an “x-factor” quality a must! Vocal range: Alto-Soprano, with the ability to sing lead and background vocals including harmonies and potential to belt high solo numbers and vocal lines. Though modeled after The Ikettes, The Emotions, The Weather Girls, Labelle, contemporary references include Pussycat Dolls, Little Mix, Destiny’s Child, and J-Lo. [Supporting]
