Over The top Drag in collaboration with Gay Ski Week
"Voices sweet as birdsong." (New York Times)
"One act that should not be missed." (Billboard Magazine)

In July 1994, the Kinsey Sicks drew a large and enthusiastic crowd at their first public performance on a street corner in San Francisco's Castro District. Since then, their award-winning a cappella singing, sharp satire and over-the-top drag have earned the Kinsey Sicks a devoted following.

The Kinsey Sicks have performed in an Off-Broadway show, had an extended run in Vegas, two feature films, seven albums and appearances throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Australia. For over 16 years America's Favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet has toured internationally and have drawn the attention and devotion of unexpectedly diverse audiences.

In 2001, the girls produced and starred in the critically acclaimed Off-Broadway hit, "DRAGAPELLA! Starring the Kinsey Sicks" at New York's legendary Studio 54. That production received a nomination for a Lucille Lortel award (the Off-Broadway Tony) as Best Musical and a Drama Desk nomination for Best Lyrics. In 2006 the girls wowed audiences with a much- coveted extended run at the Las Vegas Hilton. The show was ranked by critics as one of the best shows in Vegas, and heralded by reviewers as "a feast for the eyes, the ears and the funny bone."

When the Kinsey Sicks began in 1993, its founders were a group of refugees from successful careers as professionals and activists. Member Ben Schatz("Rachel") is a Harvard-trained civil rights lawyer, former Director of the national Gay and Lesbian Medical Association, and one-time presidential advisor on HIV issues. Schatz created the first national AIDS legal project and authored Clinton's HIV policy during the 1992 presidential campaign. Irwin Keller ("Winnie") is a University of Chicago-trained lawyer and linguist and former director of the AIDS Legal Referral Panel of the San Francisco Bay Area. Keller authored Chicago's gay rights ordinance, passed into law in 1989. In 2004, the Kinsey Sicks were joined by actor/singer/designer Jeff Manabat, who is responsible for Trixie's inordinate glamour and soaring counter-tenor, as well as the entire group's hot couture. Beginning in October of 2008, the Kinsey Sicks are joined by the hilarious and talented Spencer Brown ("Trampolina"), a Kansas City-based actor and singer, already known for his drag character Daisy Bucket(pronounced, of course, "bouquet").

The Kinsey Sicks come to Telluride during Gay Ski Week 2011 for an unforgettable performance at the Sheridan Opera House on Wednesday, March 2 at 7:30pm.  Seats are $35 and $50. VIP tables with treats and seats fit for a queen (or 5)  available for $500.
