Ye Olde Yellow Cabaret V –  Sir Ernest’s Birthday Recap

Ye Olde Yellow Cabaret V was the weekend after my birthday so what better way to celebrate! I always love a great party and steampunk’s love to party especially Airship Passepartout so we did just that! With June came heat and while one vendor did set up outdoors most chose the standard vendors room. By night time we opened all of the bay doors and had a great inside / outside event. 

Yellow Cab Tavern / Entry / Vendors

This time we were unable to book any food trucks for the event due to The Yellow Springs Street Fair being the same weekend. So, we provided maps and lists of local restaurants and many people walked to grab carry out or had pizzas delivered. As per usual just inside the entry way members of Airship Passepartout were greeting guests and catting their hands after they paid to enterby the wonderful door crew of Mike, Sabrina & Gintia! Also available in the lobby were Airship Passepartout Pins and high quality prints of event posters from all five of the Yellow Cabarets…plus posters and post cards for Yellow Cabaret VI – Vive la France!

Once inside the main room volunteers from Yellow Cab were severing drinks which consisted of Airship Passepartout favorites: Simply Ernest & The Captain’s Wench as well as two wines and four local microbrews from Toxic Brew , Warped WingYellow Springs Brewery as well as pop & water. Extra special thanks to Todd Martin & Rob Badger who took photos of most of the show, you can fiund links to their amazing photos near the end of the article…and interspersed throughout!

Merrie Hularingo

At about seven thirty the entertainment started with the announcement of Merrie Hularingo from Cincinnati. Merrie performed indoors for about twenty minutes hooping her way through several songs. Even though the crowd was still a bit thin Merrie put on a great show and her LED hoops were great to behold.

DJ Grog

After a short break was the Dayton Debut of DJ Grog. This purple haired troubadour took the stage and played music to get the crowd dancing. With selections ranging from electro-swing, electronica and goth plus a few steampunk tracks thrown in for good measure.

Schatzi Lord

As the last few songs of DJ Grog’s set were playing two well dressed gentlemen started to set up various pieces of furniture just in front of the stage. A few minutes after they were done Schatzi appeared wearing a 50′s housewife’s outfit. She then proceeded to wow the crowd as she performed an amazing burlesque number.

Schatzi Lord

After a short break it was time for Schatzi to once again grace the stage at Yellow Cabaret. But this time there was a white backlit sheet in the middle of the stage with a male & female silhouette! Schatzi played out a full story of a tragic Femme Fatale.
