Seven years ago, several years before she became a familiar face to national TV audiences thanks to "American Pickers," Danielle Colby got into burlesque."I feel like I'm on this journey and learning burlesque," said the Davenport native, who has lived in Chicago the past few years.
"Right about the time I was living here and doing it, I was so much into figuring out how to go about maneuvering in the burlesque world with the notoriety from 'Pickers,' which can be very difficult."She was not immediately greeted with open arms."People definitely have that mindset of, 'Oh, now she's a little famous and wants to be a burlesque artist,' when I've been doing this for seven years," she said during a lunchtime interview this week in Davenport.
She also posed for the cover pages of Pin Up America, Pretty In Ink, and other magazines.
While the guys are out picking, Danielle holds down the fort at Antique Archaeology, Mike’s store and base of operations.
She has curvaceous hourglass body shape and large portion of her figure is covered by tattoos. Her measurements are nicely visible on number of daring photo shoots.
As far as viewers know, the childhood friends spend 360 days of the year on the road together, unless Mike is dealing with a back injury or needs to attend a high school reunion.
So two affable male partners traveling all over the country together antiquing with a bit of lighthearted bickering thrown in?
I'm trying to stick to the American style of burlesque, where it's focused on the dance portion, the entertainment portion."As her burlesque alter ego Dannie Diesel, she'll perform during the festival to the music of George Thorogood and the Destroyers' "Bad to the Bone," starting out in a simple evening gown and setting aside her more elaborate costumes."I'm really learning the classic movements of bump 'n' grind.
The more that happens, the happier I feel about my stage presence and the more I'm in touch with my audience, not in my head, worrying about the next move," she said."Right now I need to focus on the bare bones of what burlesque, American burlesque, is to me," Colby added.
