Lyra at Lumen Lounge (say 3 times fast!)

They say New York is the city that never sleeps.  But Houston certainly isn’t going to bed early even on weeknights.  Lumen Lounge has been a part of the nightlife scene for years and even on a Tuesday you can find a sexy crowd having a good time.  This particular Tuesday was owner, Joe Arbeely’s birthday celebration.  I performed on my lyra above the packed house.  Everyone was dressed to impress and there was plenty of complimentary food to go around.  I love this club for the location.  It’s outside of the insanity of the downtown scene where parking and traffic can be hectic to navigate.  It also has the right mix of lounge chill and dance club.  Joe is a veteran of Houston entertainment and I was thrilled to perform for his birthday.

Flying above the Freeway

Houston, Texas is one of the fastest growing cities the country and will soon surpass Chicago as the third most populous.  So of course there is a huge demand for new housing.  Encore Montrose is a beautiful new building in the trendy Montrose area which has an unusual feature… An infinity pool overlooking one of the busiest freeways in the city!

For their grand opening that’s exactly where I placed my lollipop lyra.  I could see all 10 lanes of traffic during the weekday rush.  The event was so much fun.  There was food, champagne, live music, and of course an aerialist.  I absolutely loved the staff who were so kind when helping me setup everything.  They also sent me home with a handful of cookies when it was all over.

Wedding Day Silks

I met this beautiful bride at a bridal open house when I was showcasing aerial silks as wedding entertainment.  We instantly hit it off and she asked me to perform for her big day.  She chose the Bell Tower on 34th Street which is a stunning venue to have her ceremony and reception.  They have 30 foot ceilings which I absolutely die for of course!  When I arrived, her groom met with me and had such a happy look on his face, all he could think about was marrying the woman of his dreams.  I brought my nude/cream colored silks which looked so elegant and performed during the dinner and reception.  Afterwards I met her older aunt who was so impressed that she was ready to take classes herself!  We now follow each other on Instagram 🙂

Performing for Sam Feldt in Houston

Flowing to the sounds of Sam Feldt

Dutch DJ, Sam Feldt flew into town and played a great set at Clé on Sunday.  It was as hot as Houston gets and I was high above the crowd on my flower-decorated lollipop lyra.  I even added some silk fans to my performance.  The crowd was in full beach party mode dancing and splashing in the pool.  Summer is by far my favorite time of year!  Even though a lot of people said it was a little terrifying to see me up 20 feet in the air they loved the show along with all the gorgeous performers on our team.  Thanks always to Lady L Entertainment who creates our concepts and is so supportive of all of us!

Aerial as a Graduation Gift

A wonderful aunt decided to surprise her nephew for his high school graduation party by having me perform on my lollipop lyra during dinner last weekend.  Everyone was surprised and excited including the young man’s parents.  The party took place at the beautiful La Tranquila Ranch in north Houston.  There was so much joy in the room with family members from multiple generations.  It was a very proud occasion and I loved being a part of it.  Special thanks to Debra Riley of La Tranquila who took amazing care of me and made my job super easy and fun!

Clé Day and Night Club Turns 3

For the past 3 years Clé (French for “key”) has been an upscale playground in downtown Houston for those looking to let loose and get wild.  Top DJ’s from all over the world come to play sets by the pool while beautiful people enjoy the summer weather.  At night, the party keeps going with an indoor dance floor and top shelf drinks.  I helped celebrate Clé turning 3 by performing on lyra with Lady L Entertainment.  Our team also featured a mermaid, stilt walker, strolling champagne beauty, fire performer, and a gorgeous woman in a balloon dress.  We were all costumed in white and gold.  Clé never disappoints when it comes to luxury and decadence and this party was absolutely all of that.

Rocking with Backspace at White Oak Music Hall to Benefit OpHeart

An adorable group of kids basically parked in front of me for the whole night. They were the sweetest!

I had a super fun weekend performing my lollipop lyra at the White Oak Music Hall in Houston.  Backspace headlined the night by playing a 26 song set; one song for every letter of the alphabet.  The band is made up of business professionals who dedicate themselves to serving the community.  The concert raised money for OpHeart, an amazing organization that aims to help children born with life-threatening heart defects no matter the income level of the parents.  There was a great crowd of all ages that came out to support a wonderful cause.  Houston is known for having a strong community connection and this night definitely showed that spirit.  (Special thanks to Knockout Entertainment for bringing me on board!)

It was a full house at White Oak Music Hall

Spring is Here with Robin Schultz

Robin Schulz opened the pool party season at Cle (day and night club) this past Sunday and played an awesome set.  I was costumed in gold with monarch butterflies by Lady L Entertainment and performed on my lollipop.  Houston weather is always unpredictable but this day was perfect.  Warm, sunny, and full of chill vibes and people ready to say goodbye to an unusually cold winter.  We actually got a few inches of snow this year!

I always love performing at the pool parties at Cle.  I’m thinking about having a new outdoor apparatus built just for outdoor events like these but still in the early designing stages.  So many ideas!
