You’ll be riding your bicycle, playing your clarinet, singing reciting, poetry …. hmmmm, it’ll be quite the experience!
The idea for trash fashions was said to have come to found Susan Lamela while she was repairing a designer suit. Discouraged with the shoddy workmanship of the expensive garment, she claimed “I could do better than that!” Thus was born the first trash fashion show in 1983 entitled “The Cutting Edge of Fashion.” In 1986, Haute Trash made is exclusive showing at the Old Nevada Theatre. Haute Trash has performed hundreds of shows, most for non-profits and to benefit local causes and awareness. Rethink, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle! They were the first to coin that phrase … at least in our neck of the woods! What can I say about Haute Trash! Let’s just say they can be wayyyyyyyy trashy! And will be for the evening of burlesque, tongue and cheek!
Singer/Songwriter, Juliet Gobert fronts the all girl band made up of Kim Rogers on pedal steel, Karel Hendee on standup bass and Karen Carchidi on fiddle. It will be a fun evening with their sweet harmonies and toe tappin’ tunes!
