God as my witness, I never thought anything could make Pat Boone sexy.

Downtown Delilahs prove ‘Valentine’s Day is for Suckers’

February 3, 2014

Modern vaudeville, contemporary cabaret — these might seem an unusual combination of words at first glance. But The Downtown Delilahs, a burlesque-inspired dance troupe right here in Savannah, ain’t your grandmother’s burlesque show.
