Does anyone remember a male dancer who used to wow all the women at the Dayton bars in the 70's. I think his name was "Jeremiah". This was years before the Chippendale dancers and other male revues.

I think he was out of Columbus and used to have quite a following. Some of the ladies I used to work with went to see him when he would appear locally. They said the crowds could get pretty rowdy.

He actually lived right down the street from me near the Dayton Mall. We were young and would drive by and yell bad things at him when he was out. One particular day we yelled some things and there were a bunch of guys outside at his house. Turned out it was undercover cops and they followed us up the street and gave us the once over. We never yelled at him after that.

I recall he was charged with assault when (he claimed) a woman tried to pull his g-string loose and he bit her.

I think his name was Jeremiah Shastid and he was from Dayton. I can also remember some radio promos for bars and night clubs where he was performing.

I somehow missed seeing Jerimiah or if I did I was not impressed. lol I did however see Big Red. He put a dollar in my top! It was more fun watching the ladies that came to see him. Standing on the tables and chairs and screaming as loud as possible. That was the quiet time of the show. lol They had to tell me to stop all that noise lol-nuts

Jeramiah was managed by/in association with Mike Ferraro who owned dubious clubs on North Dixie and other small businesses. I worked at a Van customizing shop on N. Dixie and was involved in Ferraro's 'Jeramiah' Van project. It had a picture of the male stripper on each side and also a secret compartment, disguised as a dividing wall so he could hide weapons and God knows what else. Some years later, Ferraro had his arm blown off in the parking lot of one of his own clubs. Wages of sin, I suppose.....

All I can find currently for Mr. J is a woodworking company down in Florida. Somebody should go interview him. I'll bet he has some stories to tell.

I have a photo of Jeremiah giving my grandma (!) a (rather tame) lapdance, from back in the late 70s. All seemed pretty innocent -- lots of middle-aged (and older) office gals would go just for the novelty. No full nudity, so even grannies could giggle.

Also, I remember reading an article in the DDN in which Jeremiah (at the height of his local fame) came out as bisexual, which was pretty brave at the time.

Does anyone remember the name of the restaurant on N. Dixie that turned into the Pink Cadillac?
