While cave-diving off the coast of Uketania, three amateur spelunkers accidentally disturbed a nest of wild ukuleles. The explorers were mauled savagely, but a side effect of the bites caused two of them to instantly become adequate ukulele players, and one of them to become a blue gorilla who plays bass for some reason.

Miss Jenna Beth has a penchant for all things vintage, from burlesque performer extraordinaire, to national and internationally published Pin-up model. She began modeling in 2006, and since then has added over 30 national and international magazine covers to her credit. She now is a national officer for the international pinup girls group, The Luscious Ladies.Her onstage burlesque performances are known for being over-the-top- sparkling and feathery- often accompanied by large feather fans and headdresses, which earned her such monikers as “The Feathery Fox”, “The Sparkling Jewel of South Florida” and later winning the title of Queen of Kansas City. In 2013 she started appearing on stages nationwide, including productions from New York to LA, and later internationally in Germany, France, Poland, Italy, Belgium, Canada, Scotland, Czech Republic, and Iceland! Her love for tiki began over a decade ago when she lived across the street from the Mai Kai and she was immediately hooked. More recently she performed at both the Hukilau and the Hi-Tide Summer Holiday with Hula Girls in 2019 and the following year collaborated to create her pinup tiki mug designed by Tiki Tum, rendered by No Sleep Till Cosplay and Bulletproofzero, and produced in Italy by MakaTiki. And in 2021 she was published in Exotica Moderne issue 11!
'Francean Fanny got her start in the Elvisesque world of Mike McCarthy's nostalgic, demented imagination. Life in Memphis led her to delve into both pinup and burlesque. She’s performed at both the initial Tease-o-Rama in New Orleans and opening ceremonies for a BHoF. The tropics of south Florida lured her further south & to Cupcake Burlesque. Tiki culture drew her in so far that she found herself shaking it up with the Hula Girls. Franny is a published pinup & VP of the South Florida chapter of the Luscious Ladies.
