EDI 2020, sponsored by Pole Position, returns to
Bucks Cabaret & The Pony Clubs

The nation’s number-one showgirl competition —  the Exotic Dancer Invitational — heads back to Curtis Wise’s Bucks clubs in Dallas, while Jerry Westlund brings the EDI East to his Pony Clubs in Huntsville, Alabama.

The nation’s premier showgirl dance competition returns for its seventh straight year in 2020, as dates and locations for the the EDI—the Exotic Dancer Invitationals—have now been announced. For the second straight year, the Bucks Cabaret clubs in Dallas and their owner, Curtis Wise, will host the EDI West on April 2-4. For the EDI East, Jerry Westlund’s Pony Clubs will also return as host, but this time, the contest will be held at multiple Westlund clubs in Huntsville, Alabama, June 3-5.

The EDI is also welcoming their newest sponsor, Pole Position, a brand new app that offers a professional platform for clubs and entertainers to connect on availability of bookings (time slots entertainers can choose to dance at a particular club), recruiting, marketing, and more.
“Pole Position(the app) is thrilled to be a sponsor at the 2020 EDIs, hosted at Bucks and the Pony Clubs,” says Pole Position’s Caressa C. “We cannot wait to see the competition brought by the lovely and talented, top-tier entertainers presented at top-tier clubs!”

“It’s exciting that the EDI continues to elevate the concept of the ‘show’ and the ‘performance’ within our industry,” says Westlund. “It’s important to what we all do. In the age of the internet, it’s more important than ever to provide a ‘show,’ to have entertainers who know how to really perform and put butts in seats. I’m also excited to host the EDI East at my clubs in Huntsville, Alabama, including the Pony Club and my Scores club. Huntsville is one of the fastest-growing cities in the south and currently holds a spot on U.S. News & World Report’s Best Places to Live list. The 2020 EDI East will bring an exciting event to our clubs in Huntsville and help expand our brands nationally. I’m also looking forward to attending the EDI West and hosting the EDI alongside my friend, Curtis Wise.”
“It was absolutely amazing!” says Bucks Cabaret club chain owner Curtis Wise, of the 2019 EDI West. “The Bucks Brand will once again host this year’s EDI West Showgirl Championship, and we can’t wait to see the best of the best show up to pack the house all three nights for a great Bucks/EDI West competition. Can’t wait to do it again!”

A host of feature entertainers have already announced their desire to compete in the 2020 EDI contests, including: Angel Beau, Natasha Nova, Shar Zayn, Annie Lane, Janine Jericho, Amanda Parker, Delilah Deluxxx, Michelle Lynn, Heather Heaven, DinahMight, Mila Deluna, Pixie Raye, Katie Sutra, Ruby Ryder, BJ McNaughty, Cali West, Cassius Chay, Raven Kali, Blake Monroe, Bailey Fox, Onyx, Kordella Kosor, Alaska Galore, Aerial Leigh, Dyna DiVine, Angel Marie, and Fenton Rae, though no EDI 2020 lineups are finalized as of yet.

“Anytime we can work with clubs and owners who genuinely appreciate the ‘showgirls’ and the very unique type of entertainment they provide, we’re ecstatic,” says EDI Founder and Producer, Dave Manack. “That’s exactly what we have with Jerry Westlund and Curtis Wise. Jerry saw what Curtis did last year in Dallas at the EDI West, moving the contest to different venues on differnet nights, and he plans to do the same at the EDI East in Huntsville. Our competing entertainers have done a great job of adapting to different clubs, and EDI co-producer Lexi Lamour and I expect the same this year. We can’t wait for the 2020 EDI contests!”

The EDI contests are also sponsorsed by GentClubShirts.com, the industry’s leading provider of apparel and other club merchandise. For more information on the EDI contests, call ED Publications at (727) 726-3592 or visit theEDIs.com.
