From the creators of Bunny Brigade, WonderLust, and Créme de Luxe, in collaboration with La Pompe Jazz comes Frolic! 

Frolic is a unique installment in the long-running Ophelia's monthly Sunday Peepshow. This fanciful NEW show features live music and live showgirl acts as curated by Gazella, The Mile High Showgirl. Popular "Hot Club" jazz band, La Pompe Jazz will set the mood and will perform on stage, right alongside beautiful entertainers who have created EIGHT original performances, exclusively for this hypnotic, don't-miss event!

Gazella is a classically trained dancer that has performed on stages internationally as a ballerina and as a Las Vegas showgirl in the feather and rhinestone spectacular Donn Arden’s Jubilee! She worked her way up from the chorus to principal during her time there. After "retiring" from performing for almost a decade, she began to miss the stage and the spotlight. Burlesque became her new path. Since December 2013, she's been using her experience as a Vegas showgirl to curate and develop her acts. She's been spotlighted on stages at the Colorado Burlesque Festival, Texas Burlesque Festival, AburlyQ, Kansas City Burlesque Festival, Las Vegas Burlesque Festival, Arizona Burlesque Festival, Rue Royale Burlesque in Portland and Marathong 2014 in Seattle. You can catch her galorious gams and high kicks at The Clocktower Cabaret in Denver, Colorado.
La Pompe Jazz
La Pompe Jazz
"La Pompe Jazz is a Denver-based gypsy jazz group formed in 2013.

What started as a way to connect with fellow musicians and explore classic French gypsy tunes has developed into an eclectic blend of classic American jazz standards and "Hot Club de France" inspired tunes.

La pompe is the French term for the driving rhythmic pulse that is ubiquitous throughout the gypsy jazz style. Made famous by the legendary Django Reinhardt, gypsy jazz uses the steady beat of the rhythm guitar to propel the jazz swing.

La Pompe Features David Lawrence (vocals and guitar), Andrew Hannum (guitar), Kevin Laxar (upright bass), and Erik Fellenstein (violin)"
