The NY Pin Up Club
The NY Pin Up Club has been producing retro themed photo shoots, burlesque shows and events since 2006! Our shoots are inspired by the classic photos, drawings, and paintings of the late ’40s and ’50s, occasionally spanning anywhere from the ’30s-’60s. They are the kind of sexy, kitschy, fun images of pretty girls that guys would “pin up” in their lockers or at the garage. We offer different themes every month for your modern pin up needs!
The NY Pin Up Club has been producing burlesque in NYC since 2007. Our monthly show ran for more than 5 years at venues such as The Slipper Room and The Bowery Poetry Club, intermixed with one off shows and events at many other venues. We showcased our large scale themed spectaculars known as “The Big Tease” at multiple venues around the city, the last of which was the Main Room at LPR in 2014! We are thrilled to bring our “Little Tease” show to the Gallery at LPR.
Join us as we recapture the charm of classic pin ups. Sign up for our mailing list at www.nypinupclub.com to stay up to date on events, and join the club at meetup.com/nypinupclub. Follow us on Instagram & Twitter @nypinupclub & be sure to like us on Facebook Facebook.com/nypinupclub.

Sincerely Yours is a performer that lives up to her name and her tagline – the love letter of burlesque. She’s known for her heartfelt performance art and soulful singing. Charming, elegant and tender, she graces the stage to tell a story. In addition to performing throughout the region she produces shows annually in Coney Island. She has also co-produced burlesque and variety shows including Debauchery and House of Sin.
Sincerely Yours has been singing and playing musical instruments for most of her life. Her instrument of choice is the bassoon. In New York she has played with ensembles such as “Clown Kong & the Restraining Orders,” “Brian Fisherman’s Tiki Band,” and Brooklyn’s “Grand Street Community Band” which took her all the way to Carnegie Hall! She founded the lively 4 piece jazz ensemble “Sincerely Yours & the Dear Johns”. When asked why play such a peculiar instrument she’ll reply “I love the bassoon because of the rich, complex personalities it creates. When I play the bassoon, I can be either a clown or a stoic, sinner or saint. Every human emotion is explored. I am certain this has made a significant impact on my exploration of burlesque.”
Priscilla Bow is the petite package that everyone wants to unwrap. She’s a Pin-Up throwback to the 1940’s who captures a room with her cute charm and iconic sultry style.
This delightful showgirl specializes in Classic American Striptease and Neo Burlesque. She was mentored by international burlesque performer Veronica Varlow who gave wings to Priscilla’s burlesque debut at the Slipper Room in NYC. She also graduated from the New York School of Burlesque taught by the Headmistress Jo Weldon and performed at the school’s Student Showcase.
Priscilla has performed in showcases, parties and much more in NJ, NYC, Upstate NY and PA.
Rita N. Wink
Rita N. Wink has been called the little ray of sunshine to light up a show—Rita is a burlesque performer, costumer, and pin-up enthusiast based in Brooklyn, New York. By day she sews costumes for artistic and respectable theaters, but by night she takes those costumes, wraps them in rhinestones, and leaves them on the floor. In between, she’s buried in books studying for a master’s degree in Burlesque Costume History.
When she’s not sewing costumes–or shimmying out of them–she can be found taking a long bath, baking, or walking Penny her miniature poodle in Prospect Park.
DJ Ceremony is one of New York City’s most in-demand Alternative DJs. He has a 1st Saturday residency (as a producer/DJ) at the popular Greenpoint live music venue Saint Vitus. There he produces his flagship party “Oscillate Wildly” (a Smiths/Morrissey-themed fan celebration), in addition to a ’90s Britpop night that occurs on alternating months. He also has a weekly 3rd Saturday residency at Parklife, sister venue to Littlefield in Brooklyn. He can also regularly be heard as a guest DJ or one-night-only producer at an eclectic array of local venues such as Le Poisson Rouge, Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Beauty Bar, Berlin and Rumpus Room. Although DJ Ceremony’s specialty is UK Alternative music, he performs in a versatile range of different styles, and enjoys bringing a fun, kinetic sound to NY Pin Up Club shows.
