Derived from Strut's Black Love events for which Black Benatar was an original host, this salon features hot black and queer black performers in circus arts and comedy, including acro-dancer Toni Cannon, singer/songwriter and musician Jade Way, comedian Dominique Gelin, and choreographer Zoe Donnellycolt along with collaborating dancers Jenna Chen, Tarin Alexandria Griggs and Kaitlin Duffey.

Between acts host Black Benatar will perform a drag number or two, and perhaps some magic? Black Benatar's Black Magic Cabaret is like children’s show for adults, complete with a bed time story.

  Toni Cannon made his debut on the stage six years ago with Topsy Turvy Queer Circus, and loved every moment of it. He has also worked Acrosanct, Body Waves, and Americas Got Talent finalist Abigail Baird’s company Arieal Animations. He loves acrobatics, and recently found a new love for pole. He really finds the challenge of performing and training thrilling, and would like to thank his family and friends for their support over the years.
