Yoko Ono may have performed with John Cage at Carnegie Hall, but tonight, a long held dream for me came to fruition. I got to perform an Avant Guard version of ‘Amarillo’ in Albion Park, a venue far more daring than the big apple.

I was so beyond happy with my performance, I feel all my years of hard work and preparation finally payed off.

The screaming feedback that was incorporated into the performance, gave the song an edge i’m sure many couldn’t have imagined.

Props to the audience who fell under my beguiling stage presence, and clapped along at all the right moments.

My life truly is my art.

It was that time again, when tinsell bedecked the halls of Marrickville Town Hall.

Pollys last dance of the year, always a hoot, always fabulous shows, always hot dogs at the canteen, and always .. ALWAYS Amarillo (Click highlighted link to view).

By twenty minutes to midnight, i began to notice a shift in the crowd, a change in mood (and not because of any consumption of Bex or Mogadon), distress and hysteria was palpable on the dance floor, men began to clutch their pearls, women began to plot an occupy movement, as a united entity the crowd was on tenderhooks.

‘Would the song we came here to dance to not be played this evening?, surely not’.

And then at exactly 11.45pm the first strains of ‘Amarillo’ burst fourth from the speakers, and all was good in the world, the old hall heaved a sigh of relief, and the dance floor, and it’s occupants, danced as one to the dulcet tones (and large plastic framed spectacles) of Tony Christie.

The crowd whirled and clapped, i began to cry before sinking to my knee’s (for the second time that evening), overcome with emotion and frenzied joy, i was at one with my people, the only people i can imagine who would understand, and celebrate my passion for Tony Christie.

And who are those wonderful people?, ‘The Pollys Crowd’, that’s who.

Long may Pollys sail, and long may we ‘Sha la la la la la la lah’.

Tho now past the stage of my life where i live in nightclubs, i still like to get my fill of busting the odd .. and i do mean odd move, and a non attitude drag show, nothing tires me more than a drag queen who has to rely on being nasty and cruel to get a cheap laugh, it insults my intelligence. None of this is found at Pollys i L O V E this social group. If you ever want to meet me, hit on me, buy me a cordial, spike my cordial, share a gas mask or ask for favours in return of a photo with me, this is the place, i’ll be the one on the dance floor screaching with delight as the first bars of ‘Amarillo’ strike up, it really is worth the trip just to watch Miss Tammy’s patented dance moves to this song .. old time gay, that’s what i like.
