It is with much fanfare that we announce CIRQUE DES BETES (San Louis Obispo) will be bringing their beastly circus and fantastical feats to THE VELVETEEN BAND’s first Friday’s residency at BOMBAY BAR AND GRILL, April 3rd, 2015!!! Fresh from a weekend of performances at the annual Wild Wild West Convention in Tucson, Arizona, CIRQUE DES BETES will transform Bombay into circus of wonder and amazement!
Daniel Flores, Manager of the Velveteen Band stated, “We saw them perform on the Queen Mary earlier this year, and were absolutely enchanted! We knew we had to bring them to Ventura. We are so excited to get them!”
Started as the duo Fawn & Bear in 2012, this new performing group has grown in size and expanded their talents to include circus flow arts such as hooping, contact juggling, fan dancing, staff manipulation and the aerial arts. In addition to circus arts we have included a variety of neo burlesque dancers who are excited to thrill and chill you with intriguing dances and skills. We have also expanded our connections to other troupes of performers in the San Luis Obispo Area as well as steampunk groups up and down the coast of California.
The First Friday event will be held at Bombay Bar and Grill in Ventura, Ca on April 3rd, as part of THE VELVETEEN BAND’s First Fridays residency, starting at 8pm.
Radio Threat (Oxnard) will also be performing, and featured artists Kimmy Lenwell, Beverly Treadwell, and Carl Gustavsson will be presenting and selling artwork.
THE VELVETEEN BAND will begin their first set of the evening at 9:15 PM, and CIRQUE DES BETES will take the stage at 10pm. This event is FREE, and 21+
