Wow. Three years in NoHo. Congrats! What’s the secret to ELIXIR The Show’s success?
ELIXIR has been successful and has sustained for the past three years for a number of reasons. We feature some of best and most talented acts in all of Los Angeles in the areas of dance, burlesque, pole-art, magic, comedy and much more. We have a great venue at The Federal Bar that really gets what we are trying to do and they partner with us more than we could have thought. But more than that, we continue to thrive because of the community and sense of family that we have created within the ELIXIR brand. In short, our audience, our performers and our sponsors understand that we are a family, not just a show, and they desire to be a part of what we are doing at ELIXIR. We started out to curate a show that was as much fun to be a part of as it is to experience. Our audience, and especially our artists, have gravitated toward the ELIXIR way.
What’s new about this month’s show?
Every month we bring a show that’s full of entertainment and awe, but this month, on top of all that, we are celebrating the artist that have been a part of ELIXIR over the three years we’ve been bringing this show to you. We’ll be celebrating them as a way of saying thank you for all they’ve given to the show to this point. And that will translate to one of, okay, THE most entertaining and dynamic show we’ve ever put together. Our artists understand that this show is special and have come to us with ideas that are blowing us away. We want to set the room a light, so we are throwing a white party, taking full advantage of the black light additions that The Federal Bar has installed. We plan to go at it all night, hence the name Nuit Blanche – a sleepless night. And who would dare slumber and take a chance on missing even a second of this celebration?
Who will be performing for ELIXIR’s third anniversary?
Who will be featured: house band Funky Munky Band, Cherry Poppins Caburlesque (cabaret singers and dancers), The Show with Adam and Sean (music comedy duet), The Lolitas (burlesque troupe), Lennon Hobson & Friends (musical theater ensemble), pole artists Brian Wolf and Vegan Pole Dancers, Charlotte Chau-Pech (solo dance artist), EVMB (solo beatbox artist with breakdancers), comedian Scout Durwood and a few more surprises.
What’s coming up for ELIXIR The Show?
We’ve done this show every month for free in the NoHo Arts District, and some of our artists have gone on to appear in Cirque du Soleil, America’s Got Talent, Absinthe at Caesar’s Las Vegas, Fake Off on TruTV, Funny Girls on Bravo and have collaborated with Snoop Dogg, Carlos Mencia and Timbaland. This event is a kickstarter/fundraiser for ELIXIR to take our show to bigger audiences and perform in other parts of the country.
See you on the dance floor, NoHo!
