The New Orleans Burlesque Festival's Queen's Ball

The New Orleans Burlesque Festival evokes the heyday of Bourbon Street nightclubs for adults-only audiences in an authentic 1950s spectacle of showgirls, jazz, comedy, and hot-under-the-collar choreography. The mastermind behind the three-day festival is Rick Delaup, the creator of Bustout Burlesque, which was voted one of the top-10 burlesque shows in the world by the Travel Channel’s panel of howling cartoon wolves. After the Queen of Burlesque contest crowns a new striptease monarch, festivalgoers assemble at the House of Blues New Orleans to witness the Queen’s Ball, taking in a lineup of burlesque acts while the new queen holds court.

Emceed by trick-roper and all around cowboy Chris McDaniel, the celebration rolls through bump-and-grind performances from an international slate of sultry ladies. Ginger Valentine, who wears the 2011 Burlesque crown—and little else—headlines, following Chicago's Lady Jack, whose performances have reached feature films and TEDx Midwest, and London's chopper-riding Kitty Bang Bang, who blends smoking-hot dances with smoking-hot fire breathing. Group acts such as the Houston Burlesque Revue, named Audience Favorite at the 2011 Fringe Festival, and the nationally renowned Texas ensemble Ruby Revue round out the night with classically inspired dance and coy comedy.

House of Blues New Orleans

At home in the French Quarter, the House of Blues New Orleans keeps its heritage ever near with a metal box of mud from the Mississippi Delta hidden beneath its stage. Around this, more than 290 pieces of folk art—one of the largest collections in the country—decorate the walls. Also bringing its Southern charm and homestyle feel are hardwood floors, no fewer than three bars, and two levels for concert viewing.
