Member since 2018 - She’s working 9 to 5 to bring you the best little burlesque in Texas. Folly Parton grew up a Disney Princess in a frigid land far, far away. As a young woman, she moved to Austin to escape the snow, and was promptly corrupted by the power of feminism and Chuy’s queso. Realizing she was far more sea witch than mermaid, she began to explore dance and visual art as a creative outlet, while working in housing and volunteering for causes about which she is passionate. Folly started burlesque in 2017, and since then has worked as a performer, producer, and emcee. She brought her passion for philanthropy to burlesque by creating the community-focused production team Rockin’ Follies productions. She recently produced the Homes for the Holidays benefit show for Accessible Housing Austin!

Member since 2021 - Sleaze, cheese, debauchery and a penchant for getting into trouble describe him best. Jack Potts, is a lounge lizard who is far too confident for his own britches. A lover of comedy and horror and the raunch of the past, Jack, wants to bring back that classic casino entertainer aesthetic. When not working for tips singing renditions of classics he could be found making poorly chosen bets near the blackjack table or the slots.

Member since 2021 - They don’t call her Melons for nothing, but you can call her Mel. Better known as Mel, Marcia Melons has been dancing for as long as she can remember. Her grandpa, formerly an Arthur Murray competitive dancer, taught her how to ballroom dance in the family room. Still she stayed backstage until her thirties when she took a belly dancing class. From the first moment she stepped on stage, she was addicted. She joined the Caravanserai Dancers from Bloomington, Indiana. Then she was invited to Different Drummer Belly Dancers, known for performing at festivals and conventions including Gen Con. Dipping her toes into flamenco, she even danced with ¡Baila Baila! After co-producing Forbidden Bellydance, she was convinced to try burlesque and has never looked back. In addition, she’s also a voiceover artist, an emcee, a drag king named Mel Mac, and has even been in the movie Jay & Silent Bob: Reboot. She loves it when audiences sing and dance along with her. “No na-nas, no tatas.”

Member since 2018 - Showing you Heaven while rockin your underworld! Roc Gaude grew up in a musical family – his uncle played trumpet for Doc Severinsen’s (Johnny Carson’s musical director) touring company, his father sang bass in the church choir – and spent many nights as a young godling singing rows and blending harmonies. After some gentle(?) prodding from the Mistress of Musicality Coco Lectric, he started taking classes in burlesque at the Austin Academy of Burlesque, which led to performing in a number of shows around the state of Texas, including the inaugural Texas Metal Burlesque Festival, the Tenacious D Tribute show, Burlesque the Vote 2019, and the first Krampus Kristmas show. He also co-produced the Homes for the Holidays charity show, which benefited Accessible Housing Austin. He frequently combines his loves of music, costuming, engineering know-how and geekdom to entertain his audiences. He just has one question for you – are you ready to rock?!
