Toni's Night Out

Mermaids, Alive & Well in New York


The Mermaids of New York Benefit Ball at Galapagos in Brooklyn was a Toni’s Night out unlike any other. Yes, there was music, specifically by the unique otherworldly rock stylings of indie band Lavalier. Watch them here live: Lavlier

But there was also so much more, including sexy burlesque performers, sword-swallowing and a sneak peak of what will be the documentary to see in 2010.

This film introduces some of the truly amazing, beautiful and genuine mermaids that live on and around the island of Manhattan. Weaving together anecdotes from some of New York’s most renown mermaids, these stories serve as a jumping off point to explore the connections between New York City, the individuals who choose to call it home and the water, which surrounds it.

This documentary captures conversations with artists, performers, environmentalists and other maritime obsessed New Yorkers to create a beguiling portrait of these unlikely urban sirens. Featuring New York’s most noteworthy sea creatures: Bambi the Mermaid, a burlesque performer and “Mermaid Queen of Coney Island”; Pam, the “Brooklyn Babydoll,” a pinup model and go-go dancer; and Dame Darcy, an author, artist and singer of sea shanties, the project also addresses their hopes for the future of their embattled seaside playground, Coney Island.

The event was a fundraiser / coming out party for the film. I was on hand to lend my support and help out awesome filmmakers Ilise S. Carter (aka “The Lady Aye”) and Mica Scalin.  This is indeed the stuff that dreams are made of and I am ecstatic that these creative people are bringing some magic to the masses. I am also honored to be a part of such a project. Being credited as an “associate producer” on the film is also a pretty sweet deal. 😉
The night was a smashing success as well as a ton of fun! It ended as only a night like this could end..   with an awesome  ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ sing-a-long ofcourse! I hope you enjoyed my night out! I also hope you are as excited about “The Mermaids of New York” as I am! Until next time.. xo
