MEET YOUR HOSTS

Jonah Ray

VooDoo von BoomBoom

she/her

he/him

VooDoo von BoomBoom is a burlesque host and performer based in Sarasota, FL. With many years of experience in the burlesque industry, VooDoo is passionate about pushing the boundaries of burlesque and is dedicated to creating bold, innovative performances.
VooDoo is a firm believer in the power of burlesque to empower and inspire its audiences and performers alike. Through her performances, VooDoo encourages everyone to be unapologetically themselves and to never shy away from expressing themselves through art.

“From a place where the mystery grows as thick as the moss…deep in creole country bogs… it’s the Bayou, that gave birth to VooDoo. Raised in the House of the Rising Sun…a wayward youth, away she’d run. Swamp beasts bellow deep to bid her call…whilst with spells and potions she makes lovers fall…”

 

A divine dame emphasizing life with passions exoticly expressed through luscious lexicon, fearless style, leisurely pastimes, cunning charm, and the cultivation of otherworldly pleasures…She is the epitome of a Quaintrelle…

 

She is your…Belle of the Bayou,

  Siren of the Swamp,

  Goddess of the Gators,

  Maiden of the Murk,

  Vixen of Vernacular,

  The Creole Concubine,

  The Empress of the Everglades...

She………..is VooDoo von BoomBoom!
