This past month The South Sea Soiree featured burlesque beauty Calamity Chang and all the kool kids showed up to join in the revelry! Live from Macao Trading Company in Tribeca, The South Sea Soiree is a monthly cabaret dinner series that takes place every third Monday. This Jazz and Burlesque extravaganza, curated by Dandy Wellington, features the most talent temptress’ all to the sweet sounds of Dandy Wellington and His Band.
The clock strikes twelve and the curtain closes on an evening of Jazz and Burlesque at Macao Trading Company. Crowds of well dressed revelers thin and disappear into the night leaving a few late night stragglers to nurse their cocktails or savor that final bite of cake. A bandleader and burlesque beauty seek solitude amidst the dimming lights and fading footsteps. Their figures illuminated by the votives, a photographer captures them in repose. – Dandy Wellington. @dandywellington
