America's Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet

Kinseys return to the Edinburgh Fringe, the world's largest arts festival, with "The Lady Cocks of Bang Boys"

Last year America’s Favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet lost our Edinburgh Fringinity, thanks to the generous if foolish support of several hundred fans/Kickstarter backers. Shockingly, the folks in Scotland proved to be no better judges of talent than our supporters in the US, and we were wildly popular - and now we’re coming back to prove them wrong with "The Lady Cocks of Bang Boys", a brand new show/contaminanza.
 
Once again we’ll be at the prestigious Gilded Balloon  this time at the much-coveted 9:30pm time slot. Advance sales are nearly double last year’s, proving that… well, actually we don’t know what that proves, but it can’t be good for Scotland. Either way, talent buyers and industry muckety-mucks will converge from around the world to attend the Fringe and to ignore us completely. Buy tickets now — you don’t want to miss the lack of excitement!
 
Last year, critics raved about our show:
 
Wonderfully smart, politically pointed and liberating … examples of The Kinseys’ contagious brand of rib tickling abound in the tight-knit groups’s Edinburgh debut, a hilarious late-night lampoon of reality TV … Other glories tucked into the hour-long show [are] ... both clever and artfully crude … One of the great pleasures of The Kinsey Sicks is the cast’s lovably ribald on-stage alter-egos."
The London Times
 
“Where to start on the all you can enjoy bundle of fabulousness that is this show … they are glorious, glittery girls who have amazing voices in which they perform superb a cappella version of songs you will never remember the same way again.” 
Scotland on Sunday
 
“The Songs are performed with such gusto, skill and a huge sense of fun … a perfect way to end the night. Or, for that matter, to begin it.” 
The List
 
“An hour of jaunty high spirits performed with a handbag full of fun.” 
- Chortle: The UK Comedy Guide
 
★★★★ “A marvelous combination of comedy, music and incisive social commentary.”
- Ed Fest Magazine
 
★★★★★ “Hilariously over the top … utterly magnificent … with an act staying in my mind so prominently for this long, anything but five stars just wouldn’t fit.” 
Arts Awards Voice
 
★★★★ “It’s difficult to forget their lyrical parodies … all layered with strong satire.” 
- The Skinny
 
★★★★ “Good honest filth … the foursome inject a lot of silliness as well as some subtle political comment, and the hour speeds by.” 
The Arts Desk
 
Can we match that this year? Why not buy a ticket to Scotland, come see us there, and find out?

"ELECTILE DYSFUNCTION” marches through the West Coast!

Thank you to the righteous citizens of San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Lake Tahoe, and Lompoc, who exercised their patriotic duty by catching "Electile Dysfunction!" Next stops for the Dragapella® quartet's hilarious musical satire are Minneapolis, Denver, and Kansas City... but first: THE EDINBURGH FRINGE!

Kinseys release “ANCHOR BABY”, a biting new music video from our show “Electile Dysunction 2016"

Perhaps you may have noticed that issues of immigration and citizenship have become a tad controversial this campaign year? Not to worry, darlings, The Kinsey Sicks take seriously our responsibility as your primary dubious news source. And so we add our two cents worth to the debate, as Trixie, our very own child of immigrants, sings a provocative parody, “Anchor Baby”.
