About Bennie and the Gents: David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Queen won't be stopping in town any time soon, but Bennie and the Gents have you covered. The Gents features local musicians and burlesque dancers that team together for a night of glitter rock and glam. “We're recreating the attitude and energy of the early '70s era with a fantastic rock band equipped with costumes, makeup and loads of stage antics,” said Benjamin Sieff, a.k.a. Bennie Starlust. “Costumes are encouraged from the audience.”
