I rarely find myself looking “glam” in everyday life, which is just fine by me. For most of the year in Seattle, the air has a bit of a chill to it that renders an overcoat necessary. I’m almost always cold regardless, so when I need to wear a coat I tend to leave it on all day… which means that whatever I wear underneath the coat just isn’t that important, right? (Stylistically speaking.) Well, that’s how I justify it anyway. ;)
On occasion I will get a little decked out, but it’s usually related to some kind of show or event – either one that I’m attending or actually performing in.
— Enter GLAM à FROST —
This Winter-themed gig at Can Can with VAM GLAM was our first full-evening cabaret show as a company and it was a SELLOUT! The place was packed, wall-to-wall, standing room only, you name it. Awesome energy. Killer dancers, vocalists, live piano accompaniment from Josh Rawlings, all interlaced with a healthy dose of comedy. We’re already planning to do a Spring show in May… I’ll keep you posted on that one!
So, what’s VAM?
