The Buckaroos - '50 Bales of Hay' a solid good time

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

THE BUCKAROOS -
'50 BALES OF HAY'
THE TRIPLE DOOR
July 24-25


Straight women can be very funny to observe at male reviews if you are a Gay man. They often scream at the mere sight of the dancers before they have even done anything - let alone strip. It is a welcome atmosphere however, because the energy level doesn't seem to dissipate no matter how good, or bad, the show is. They will also spend a fortune in $1, $5, and if the dancers are really good $20 bills all evening long. Such was the case at the July 24 Buckaroos' '50 Bales of Hay' show at The Triple Door.

Right off the top I just want to commend the producers and the entertainers for creating the single most inclusive male review I have ever seen - let along hear of. Many of the dancers are straight men and yet, that wasn't an issue. These 'cowboys' know who their audience is - Gay men and straight women - and are pleased to entertain both. That might sound like a no brainer, but as I am sure straight women will tell you, whenever you go to a show like a male revue you either get one or the other. The Buckaroos - '50 Bales of Hay' certainly breaks free from that old way of thinking.

According to the show's producers, 'The West keeps getting wilder thanks to The Buckaroos, Seattle's sexiest - and funniest - all-male revue. Featuring ribald comedy and ripped abs, The Buckaroos' new show, '50 Bales of Hay,' is a Fifty Shades of Grey parody that gives the blockbuster novel/movie the countrified kick in the pants it needs (and secret wants?).'

'Built from the ground up, this new show will keep you on the edge of your seat as 'Mr. Hay' looks for buck buddies who fit his very 'singular' tastes,' continued the media release. 'While this isn't your grandma's Fifty Shades send-up - though you should bring her along - nobody combines silliness, seduction and six-packs with more skill (and fewer clothes) than The Buckaroos.'

At just $15 per ticket, the show really does live up to the hype. The men are sexy - or at least have been cast for reasons more than just near butt naked nudity - the storyline is easy to follow and the dance scenes are really great and some even a little surprising.

All in all it is a good time. If you are looking for a more traditional show - more ass and less talking - then this show is not for you. Heavy emphasis is put on banter with the audience and comedy. That is the part that, although I really enjoyed the jokes, took me a bit to settle into. I kept thinking, 'What is the need for all of this dialogue?' After telling myself to keep an open mind I began to see the big picture. In many ways the creators of The Buckaroos are somewhat genius because even on numbers that don't include the guy you think is the hottest or don't seem to be a fantasy or theme you might like, the comedy is there to keep interest. I have to say, my mind never really drifted to other things even once during the show.

While some dancers are clearly better than others as far as style and technique (a few seemed to have a bit of a time with choreography) it didn't matter much to me - and by the sounds of the hordes of screaming women that sold out The Triple Door on Friday - nobody else was bothered either.

Speaking of The Triple Door - what a great venue for a show like this. The showroom reminds me of Las Vegas (where I am originally from) because there isn't a bad seat in the house. Also, when the cowboys need to leave the stage to frolic about with the audience, there aren't rows and rows of boring ol' movie style seating for them to traverse. And the food and drinks just don't get better. To be honest, buying two tickets to this show and having dinner and drinks will cost you nearly the same amount or less to pay for parking, watch a movie and eat dinner in a downtown restaurant in Seattle. It's worth the money, the time, and you will leave with a smile on your face and a new respect for male revues.
