THE GANGSTERS’ BALL 2011 Media Release


2nd June 2011   
For the fourth year in a row, The Gangsters’ Ball is coming back to Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne in September where modern day Mobsters and Molls can step back in time to a bygone era when men wore three-piece suits, fedora hats and silk ties, women wore feathers, furs and pill box hats, big bands ruled the airwaves and gangsters ruled the streets.

Over the last two years more than 3,000 Gangsters, Molls and Flappers have attended the Gangsters' Ball shows in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne and this year's event will be bigger than ever!

A fully themed night of non-stop entertainment, The Gangsters’ Ball brings to life the fashion, style, humour and classic entertainment of the 1930s & '40s. Featuring the biggest names in Cabaret, Sideshow Vaudeville, Magic/Illusion and Big Band Swing, it is an event like no other and one not to be missed!

This year’s headline acts include MC and Sideshow Vaudeville performer Asher Treleaven, Burlesque artist Gypsy Wood, acclaimed Acrobatics troupe This Side Up and Australia’s leading female Magic and Illusion artist, Cath Jamison.

Every show also features Australia’s best Swing, Rockabilly and Rock & Roll DJs, The Gambling Den - with Poker, Roulette and Black Jack tables, Swing and Rockabilly dancing contests, Pin-up models, merchandise stalls, cocktail bar, 1920s themed photo booth and fantastic prizes for the best dancers and a lucky door prize!
