Ye Olde Yellow Cabaret VIII - Fairies, Pixies, Gypsies & Friends Recap

The eighth Ye Olde Yellow Cabaret just wrapped up and it was the most successful yet!

This event marked a change brought out by some layout changes at the Yellow Cab Tavern. The entry was in the parking lot and there is now a designated patio outside the back bay doors. As per tradition, all guests to the event were “becatted” by the Airship Passepartout door crew: Mike, Sabrina, Gintia & Bryan. Just over 200 people attended the first Yellow Cabaret of 2016 which had the theme of Fairies, Gypsies, Pixies & Friends!

Yellow Cab Tavern Bar

New Layout of the Yellow Cab Tavern Bar – Plus Tara!

This time there were three bartenders running the bar with four mixed drink selections created especially for the themed event (“Simply Ernest”, “A Certain Puckish Quality”, “Though She Be But Little, She Is Fierce” & “Ill Met By Moonlight”, plus red & white wine and a selection of beers on tap including several from local micro-breweries.

We had several great photographers in attendance who captured all of the amazing performances including: Rob Badger, Burch Roots Studio, Gene Lawson. See a full list of photo sets & videos at the bottom of the page. (Note: Unfortunately there were issues with the ceiling cam and nothing was recorded.)

Cirque de la Lune & Cincinnati Pyro returned again to Yellow Cabaret with an amazing set based on A MidSummer Night’s Dream. Unfortunately due to the weather, they could not do any of their fire acts. So they improvised with LEDs and other tricks to keep their show intact. Their set itself was full of dance, acrobatics, flow arts and other surprises!

Mayan Ruins from Cincinnati made their first trip to Dayton and made quite an impression on the crowd. Their wonderful tribal / world beat music had the crowd dancing and fit beautifully into the event theme!

The sky had cleared of all rain and the weather was perfect for the talent and breathless beauty of Skye! The crowd was in awe watching her manipulate fire as she dances with it and even ate it. Even a police car parked at the lot next door and watched half of her set until they peeled off.

Our headliners, Curse of Cassandra,  took the stage to start off the first date of their latest tour and played an amazing set that had them presiding over all of the peoples of the forest! I really loved their expanded stage design and the new songs which I haven’t heard until now!

To close out the night the purple haired DJ Grog started up some tunes that had many members of the remaining crowd dancing and entertained the ears of the vendors and performers as they loaded out.
