Right on the heels of the recent EDI West at the Bucks clubs of Dallas, the EDI East is coming to Jerry Westlund’s Pony clubs in Huntsville, Alabama, aka “Rocket City,” May 25-27. Westlund is hosting the EDI East at three of his clubs in Huntsville: The Pony Too plays host to the Starlet Division on Wednesday, May 25, his Scores Alabama club will showcase the Showgirl Division on Thursday, May 26, and the Finals of the EDI East will be held at the famous Pony Bama on Friday, May 27.
“The pent-up demand for feature entertainers is unparalleled today, it’s a cry for ‘entertainment’ that I haven’t heard at this level before,” says Westlund, owner of the Pony Clubs chain and a 2021 inductee into the ED Hall of Fame. “I’m excited to bring the best entertainers and the undisputed number-one contest for showgirls to our Huntsville clubs in 2022. The EDI consistently brings club owners, industry pros and DJs from across the US to support feature entertainment, and I’ll always be excited to play host to this event.”
The EDI East Showgirl Division will include some of the top touring feature entertainers, including Natasha Nova, Angel Beau, Ms. Parker, Blake Monroe, the “Fire and Ice” duo (Janine Jericho and Hayla Faye), Ruby Ryder, Lori Lane, Dinah Might and Katie Sutra.
The EDI East Starlet Division (girls who have been touring for four years or fewer) includes Alysia Clarke, Bailey Fox, Delilah Deluxxx, Ella Hotwheels, Lana Mae, Rachel Revolver, Salem Starr and Venom Rose.
“It’s always a pleasure to work with the great crew at Jerry’s Pony clubs,” says EDI founder and co-producer, Dave Manack. “Great folks like Stephanie Wilbanks, Dane Hansen, Jeb Jarrell, just to name a few. And to see so many great performances over the course of three nights, the EDI is a great time for those of us who enjoy live feature entertainment.”
The EDI contests are co-produced by Lexi Lamour and stage manager Rob Aiken, and are sponsored by GentClubShirts.com the official apparel sponsor of the EDI contests.
