Our third show at De Bee's in Cheshire, on Sunday 14th April themed 'a Mad Hattters Tea Party' saw the return of familiar faces alongside new ones...an encouraging sign that we are doing things right. Our fire breather had cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances but this didn't effect the night and there was still plenty for the guests to enjoy. Guests made a real effort with costumes and complimented the effort we had made with the tables and the themed photobooth.
Numbers were pretty much the same as the last event and the atmosphere was also reflected....A lovely mixture of people who enjoyed a good and varied mixture of music from our resident Dj Hayden and amazing talent of Lauren Astles live pole routines. Our guests performers Em Daniels and Will Garner opened the evening with an acoustic set and our lively as ever set from Kalashnikov (who have been with us from the start of our adventures in De Bees) ensured everyone had a real variety of styles audibly.Our Hostess team handed out cupcakes and posed with guests for photographs!
Feedback from guests has indicated something I had already been aware of.... promoting the event! As I had mentioned to guests we will be making an appearance at 'Distort' a metal night ran by DJ Hayden in De Bee's, on May 31st with latex lovelies, visuals and Fetish Rocks Photo booth to promote the next event. We will also be present at the 'On The Fringe' festival at the beginning of June, in Winsford. Plans are also under way for the latex lovelies to make appearances in areas such as Nantwich and Chester which are surrounding areas to where we are based to create awareness of the night. We will also be introducing drinks offers at our next event another point raised in the feedback!
The next event holds promising and very exciting elements all in aid of Help the Heroes, including a dress theme of 'Uniforms', think military, nurses, fireman, police and so on and so on.... new latex designs and a fashion show, with all the designs up for auction donating 100% of the profit being donated to the cause! A themed digital slide show featuring the new latex modelled! In addition to all this the regular FR team and special themed Photo booth! Shadow Play have also agreed to do an acoustic set (we're not having a full band set up due to needing the stage for the Fashion show).

The second show of Fetish Rocks at De Bees music bar in Winsford, Cheshire last night was a big step in the right direction in terms of acts, guests and vibe! Feedback from guest had me really touched...stating they felt at ease with the other guests and loved the attention to detail, music and general atmosphere. Was awesome to discover people had come from out of the area to attend the event and said they would definitely return! I was overwhelmed by the effort that guests made with their outifts. Jess Brown won the photoshoot first prize with her post apocolyptic inspired outfit, with Annette gaining second place with a gothic/burlesque ensemble and Fer gaining third prize with his steampunk/gothic feel attire.
Lauren Astles dedication to Fetish Rocks does not go unnoticed and as always is a pleasure to watch. Her new burleque inspired routine last night was enjoyed by men and women alike!
Our new edition to the team and compere, Atalia Versace, was a lovely welcome to the event and narrated the evening with a little humour and plenty of style! Lisa Loki's creations for face and body art went down a treat generating much interest from the guests. We also had Jess handing out treats to guests! Big thank you to all the bands Kalashnikov, Will Garner and Deadbeat Echoes, that played. Everyone worked really hard to make the night work.
I love the fact that the team I am working with are also very creative bringing new and fresh ideas to the table for outifts, routines and props. The next event which the date is TBC in April will have a 'Mad Hatter's Tea Party' theme and we already have plenty of ideas for the decor, dresscode and acts.

I have also been busy preparing edits from a shoot in Blackpool at Saints & Sinners, which will be previewed for the first time at Fetish Rocks - an event I run in Cheshire, combining live music, visuals and pole routines with themed dress code, to provide a different night out from your average event! The next event details are on the news page. There is also a selection of promotional shots of Lauren Astles - resident dancer for Fetish Rocks on the Events and Promotional page!
