What is Cherry Boom Boom?
Cherry Boom Boom is not just another show, it’s a lifestyle. Sure, we have all the bells and whistles of a hot, sexy show on the strip, but it’s about bringing people to their knees through the inner power of the contagion we call the Boom Boom effect. It brings you in and makes you feel connected, unstoppable, and alive from the first note to the last movement. You may not walk in with the Boom Boom effect – but you will have a piece of it when you leave. Guaranteed.
Who / What is a Boomette?
She is strong – powerful – empowered – bold – brazen and a little ballsy. A broad-in-the-making. She knows what she wants and she goes for it. Forget about “leaning in” – she jumps in with two feet and full of passion. Glass ceilings, BEWARE! Think about Oprah Winfrey, Katherine Bigelow (first women to win an Oscar), Lois Weber (first powerful female director), Sheryl Sandberg (Facebook COO), Arianna Huffington, Diane Von Furstenberg, Amy Pascal (1st woman to run a studio), Charlize Theron, Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, Debby Harry, Stevie Nicks, Cyndi Lauper, Beyonce, Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem, Madonna… the list goes on. They create and own their destiny and BOOM anything is possible!
