The Kinsey Sicks
KINSEY SICKS HIT THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL IN:
The Kinsey Sicks for President
(Because Sometimes It’s Hard Being a Republican)
Saturday, October 13, 2012
The Annex Club, New Haven, CT
THE KINSEY SICKS, America’s Favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet, have hit the campaign trail, and New Haven is their next stop. As we now know, corporations are people too. And THE KINSEY SICKS are proud to be the first corporation to run for president of the United States on the Republican ticket. (Don’t forget, Halliburton was only vice president.)
In ELECTILE DYSFUNCTION: THE KINSEY SICKS FOR PRESIDENT, the Dragapella® divas present their views on pressing political issues such as education, immigration, unemployment, scandal and corruption – and all in glorious 4-part harmony. Their original songs and brilliant re-imaginings of classics include such numbers as “Sell the Poor,” “Eliminate the Schools,” and their campaign anthem, “Vote for Me (I’m Not From Kenya).”
THE KINSEY SICKS combine razor-sharp political satire with brilliant musicianship and more than a dollop of raunch. ELECTILE DYSFUNCTION was a world-premiere commission for WashingtonDC’s Theater J and is now touring the country (including a stop in Tampa during the Republican National Convention). Additional cities include: New York, Minneapolis, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Pittsburgh and Denver.

THE KINSEY SICKS were spawned in San Francisco 18 years ago. They have performed Off-Broadway, done an extended run in Las Vegas, and tour full time worldwide. Combining rich, four-part harmony, biting satire and over-the-top drag, THE KINSEY SICKS have performed in 41 states, Mexico, Canada, Europe and Australia. They starred in their own Off-Broadway show at New York’s Studio 54 are the subjects of two feature films. In 2012 they released their eighth album, also called “Electile Dysfunction.” The New York Times praised their “voices sweet as birdsong” and Billboard calls them “one act that should not be missed.” The San Francisco Chronicle says, “Their mangling of hit songs hits genius level.” Read more about THE KINSEY SICKS at www.kinseysicks.com.
