There are certainly many words that I can come up with to describe the dazzling Bradley’s Bucks dance spectacle that took place at Franky Bradley’s last night, but one word that I will absolutely use is “fun.”
Last night, up-and-coming Philly hotspot Franky Bradley’s served us with another tantalizing troupe (the first being the fierce Franky’s Foxes), this time with a herd of five local dancing gentlemen (get to know them right here) who not only put on a show that was all wrapped up (literally) in their individual locally trained dance strengths, but stampeded out as a fun slice of local entertainment truth that kept the packed audience bucking for more.
Marching in dressed in black with sheer stockings masking their adorable faces, the Bucks entered by working it out to an industrial strength disco groove (hey Bucks DJ Chris Urban, I need that track in my music life), burning the audience one-by-one with their solo strides as well as creating a sense of team work that was about to be on full display. Keeping on, the boys mixed, matched and bungeed their way across the stage, performing to anything from a spiritual groove to a doo wop flow. Remember Louis Prima’s classic ’50s tune, “Just A Gigalo/Ain’t Got Nobody?” Both classics were alive and well on the Bucks stage last night, as was so much more.
But as much as the gentlemen were an entertainment force to be reckoned with, the ladies laced throughout the evening also held their own to the destructive dance sequences that were happening around them. Your host for the evening, the fucking hilarious Christa D’Agger, simply owned the night with her spot on comedy routines, impromptu performance of Fiona Apple’s “Criminal,” and eventually delightfully serving us with a subpoena happy character named “No Nonsense Susan.” By the way, why isn’t this incredible local comedic talent on Saturday Night Live? Like, seriously…
Also in the groovy mix were two of Franky’s Foxes–Ms. Zsa Zsa St. James and Ms. Iris Spectre–who worked it like Missy to Neon Jungle’s bubbly electro pop groove, “Braveheart,” all while serving us with fierce faces, oh, so high heels and well crafted choreography that remained on point throughout the whole performance. Chantay, both you fabulous gals owned the Bucks stage last night.
However, let’s talk about how the ending of this sexy spectacle, um, went down. Besides the fact that by this point all of the Bucks were in tight black boxer briefs, they stormed the stage together with bar stools in antlers and you could tell the guys were simulating truly loving themselves up there while spraying the stage down with…silly string…lots and lots of silly string. You could probably get the visual of just what the Bucks were doing–now, picture it being set to Mozart’s “Serenade in G Major.” Yes.
Last night’s extraordinary local dance display not only proves that Bradley’s Bucks certainly know how to work hard, but know how to play hard as well-and that’s the sexiest part of it all.
Make sure you get to their next stampeding dance set that will take place on Thursday, November 15th at Franky Bradley’s–you don’t want to miss it.
