Queen

The Heavy Metal Hellfire of Burlesque

Known as "The Heavy Metal Hellfire of Burlesque" Rocket Queen has been entertaining audiences since 2006 with her commanding and seductive brand of show-stopping burlesque in venues up and down the United States west coast and in her native state of Texas.

 She got her start on the world famous Sinferno Cabaret stage at Portland's rock venue Dantes and at the beautiful Star Theater in Portland Oregon, once owned by legend Tempest Storm.

 

She is proud to be both a burlesque artist and strip club entertainer for over a decade, and currently performs weekly at the historic Mary's Club, the oldest strip club in the Rose City. You can regularly catch her on stage with the world's first and only heavy metal burlesque troupe Sign of the Beast Burlesque which she co-founded in 2010. She is also on the production team of Metalesque Fest, the three day festival of metal music and performance art held annually in PDX since 2016. With a flirty and sarcastic confidence that lights up a room, you'll regret missing the chance to watch this phenom sparkle under the stage lights. Whether she's defining the laws of gravity with an aerial performance or glittering in classic gold, Rocket Queen brings even the devil to his knees

with the seductive Art of Tease.

A fixture in the Portland Oregon arts community for over a decade, Rocket Queen is currently available as a traveling solo burlesque artist, instructor, emcee/host, event producer and educator. Rocket Queen is also a model, craftsperson, published author and exhibited photographer. Although she was born in Texas and is a southern spitfire at heart, she has thrived in Oregon for the last fifteen years. You may catch her saying y'all on a daily basis, but she embraces the green pacific northwest as her chosen home.

Rocket earned a fine arts degree at Alexander Calder Center at Grand Valley State University in Allendale Michigan.

After relocation to the west coast she earned state certifications in personal training, cosmetology, conflict management, and project management; and she studied writing at Portland State University in Portland Oregon. She has worked as a project manager and a gallery coordinator, but considers stripping and the art of burlesque to be her greatest education and most rewarding career.
