About the Legends:
Eartha Quake "9.9 on the Richter Scale, it wasn't San Andreas' Fault!" was born and raised in tremor capital San Francisco. Her first brush with striptease was as a cashier at the Follies on 16th & Mission. An unsuccessful trip across the Canadian border landed her in Seattle, where friends talked her in to dancing. The next thing she knew, she was hooked! She developed a classic style evocative of Gypsy Rose Lee, but her favorite act was a Reverse Strip and she often worked to Blues, Rock, and Big Band sounds. She worked all over the West Coast from Los Angeles to Alaska, and danced with contemporaries Camile 2000, Sonia Lane, Velvet Ice, Viva La Fever, Baby Lulu, Baby Marie, Diamond Sapphire, Anita Mann, Phonda Peters, and Harlan Fairbanks. She now lives north of Seattle with her wonderful extended family and her long haired Dachshund.
Velvet Ice was born at the old Follies in San Francisco, 1973, in to the Rock & Roll Hippie Burlesque scene. She fell in love with the art form, learning from the greats who came through SF. Her biggest influences were Tori Lynn, Ellion Ness, Joi Jessard, Blaze Starr, to name a few. Her career has taken her to LA, Vegas, Micronesia, Canada, and Seattle. Her acts were heavily influenced by the music she loved, such as Jazz/Blues, 70s Funk, and Led Zeppelin! Velvet knew she was fulfilling her calling when told by a fan, "You make me want to go home and make love to my wife!".
