THE CROWN JEWELS OF FINNISH BURLESQUE
The Ravishing Shangri-La Rubies - the suave but not always sober, glitter-drenched feather-shaking ultra productive performer-producer-studio owner-teacher superstar burlesque duo that is Tinker Bell and TurrrboCherry!
Whether it is an unforgettable show that you are looking for, or perhaps even someone to put together the entertainment for your evening; some dazzling ladies to host an event or pose for some pictures, somebody to teach you the secrets of burlesque - the Rubies have it all!
TurrrboCherry and Tinker Bell have both been performing since 2008. They were among the first performers in the Finnish burlesque scene that sprung up during the late 00's. They are also part of Finland's probably most know burlesque troupe The Itty-Bitty Tease Cabaret. They've travelled all over Finland, as well as been seen on several international stages as solo artists, with the troupe or as The Ravishing Shangri-La Rubies, including the Burlesque Hall of Fame event in Las Vegas (2011), The Home of Burlesque in Hamburg, the Bohemian Burlesque Festival in Prague, the legendary Helsinki Burlesque Festival, Berlin Burlesque Festival, Milano Burlesque Awards and many more.
The Rubies do not only perform fabulous and fun acts, but organize and host clubs and events, run their own burlesque school The Shangri-La School of Showgirls - the only of its kind in Finland - and are great at putting together shows and creating concepts for clubs, photoshoots and acts. The Ravishing Shangri-La Rubies co-produces the Pin-Up Finland competitions and show since 2015, being in charge of the artistic part for the whole project as well as coaching the girls for the finals. They have collaborated with bands and musicians over the years, and participated in the Finnish national selection for the Eurivision Conest UMK together with Knucklebone Oscar in early 2017.
The Rubies are know for their funny performance style, their smooth but quick tongues when (mistakenly) handed a microphone, and for always having a professional approach to all projects they dig into.
