Miss Kiki deVille: The Grand Duchess of European Cabaret
Step inside and settle in with friends of old! Enchanted by her very presence, audiences the length and breadth of the globe have succumb to the exuberant glamour of one of Europe's most high profile Burlesque Chanteuse and Hostess.
After securing a place on Team Will-I-Am on BBC The Voice UK Season 3, Kiki went on in the show to battle the incredible James Byron with the track Because the Night by Patti Smith, with an arrangement by Kiki and the Musical Director, David Tench. Her inimitable style and charisma saw her adopted by the contestants as "Mama Keeks" and left Will-I-Am in tears when he had to send her home. Since then, she has made a splash in the vintage and Burlesque world securing sponsorships from Besame Cosmetics and show runs at the world famous Madame Jojo's in Soho.
Be not bedazzled by her glittering smile, or captivated by her comedic timing, yes, a woman of large 'talents' she may be, but don't let them detract from the incredible voice that lies beneath.
Australian born Miss Kiki DeVille (aka Kristianne Robinson) attributes her flawless and polished performances to over 25 years of professional international music industry experience.
A much called upon Big Band and Session Singer in her homeland, Kiki also dedicated 12 years of her craft to the Australian Civilian Army Band appearing at Melbourne's Cricket ground and Concert Hall. Before moving to Los Angeles California in 2003, Kiki had built a reputation as an organic and malleable musician, complimentary to all musical outfits and performances. Famed for harbouring nothing but the greatest live blues music in Los Angeles and across the USA for the last 54 years, Kiki became a regular performer at Babes & Ricky's Inn in the Crenshaw District of L.A. It was here that Kiki was embraced by the one and only Miss Mickey Champion, a stalwart of the California blues scene and unknowing star of Northern Soul. Under her tutelage, Kiki with incredible young musicians like Johnny Moezzi & Andy Walo, found sanctuary in the authenticity of American Blues music.
Here in the UK, she has continued to develop her craft, combining her finely tuned performance skills, infectious personality and seamless command of audiences through the vibrant platform of Burlesque. Vowing to continue to honour her blues music roots whilst embracing her inner showgirl, Kiki is now the UK's most sought after Burlesque Chanteuse and Compere. A rolling rock of Rhythm and Blues, she is leaving a trail of glitter in her wake.
Kiki was a popular judge on both seasons of the hit BBC talent show All Together Now with Geri Horner, and also went to Norway to be a judge on their version of the show.
2018 saw Kiki appear for the first time with German Rockabilly legends The Firebirds, forging a new relationship as a guest singer for the band, and very quickly a popular addition with The Firebirds fans. Since then, KIki has continued to tour extensively throughout Europe with both the Firebirds, and on other productions. Her takeover of the European scene continued with hosting slots at Oslo Burlesque Festival, Berlin Wintergarten, Ron Calli's Apollo, Berlin Burlesque Week and The Stockholm Burlesque Festival. 2020 saw lots of incredible plans such as hosting her home countries prestigious Australian Burlesque Festival and the Perth International Burlesque Festival. Sadly these things were put on hold due to the global pandemic.

you'll miss out!"
