The UK Raves About The Kinsey Sicks at The Edinburgh Fringe!

Aug 29, 2015

-The London Times: “Wonderfully smart, politically pointed and liberating … both clever and artfully crude … One of the greatest pleasures it he cast’s lovably ribald on-stage alter-egos.” 
 
-Scotland on Sunday: “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.”

-The List:
 “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.”

-Chortle: The UK Comedy Guide: “An hour of jaunty high spirits performed with a handbag full of fun.”

-Ed Fest Magazine: ★★★★ “A marvelous combination of comedy, music and incisive social commentary.”

-Arts Awards Voice:
 ★★★★★ “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.”
 
-The Skinny: ★★★★ “It’s difficult to forget their lyrical parodies … all layered with strong satire.”

-The Arts Desk:
 ★★★★ “Good honest filth … the foursome inject a lot of silliness as well as some subtle political comment, and the hour speeds by.”

New Music Video: "Putin in the Ritz!"

Jul 20, 2015

We know that there is no news that does not involve Donald Trump. However, it may not have escaped your attention entirely that a certain Vladimir Putin (also known as the “Donald Trump of Russia”, only much richer and less humble) remains the head of state of a country next to/inside of Ukraine.
 
The Kinsey Sicks have released a musical love-letter to him, intriguingly filmed in an undisclosed military installation, as only America’s Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet can. You will undoubtedly want to watch it right now, instead of reading the rest of this crap. If you like it, please share it with your many friends. If you hate it, please share it with your many enemies.

Thank You!

Marriage Equality!

Jun 26, 2015

We, The Kinsey Sicks, condemn the Supreme Court's decision to allow same-sex couples to marry because it ruins the sanctity of our song, “(Locked Out of the) Chapel of Love”. Check it out here as part of our #ThrowbackThursday (since yesterday it was still illegal).

New Music Video: "Get a Gun"

Jun 24, 2015

Earlier this year The Kinsey Sicks performed and recorded a biting new original song, “Get a Gun”, that has gotten a phenomenal response from audiences. As a result, the group filmed a video of the song late last month and have been editing ever since. Given the horrors of the Charleston shootings, the group debated releasing the video now that it’s finally ready, since the song - while clearly serious in its content - takes a sardonic tone in mocking American’s obsession with guns.
 
We’d be interested in your opinion: tone deaf? too soon? or just right? (If you just love gun proliferation we’re a little less interested in your opinion.)
 
Thank you for sharing,
 
The Kinsey Sicks

Kinseys in California and Washington State!

The girls kicked off their June tour in glamorous Los Angeles, then brought Dragapella@ to San Diego, Palm Springs, Sonoma County, and Seattle! 

Kinseys in Raleigh and Greensboro, North Carolina!

Apr 27, 2015

In our minds we’re going to Carolina. Or rather, we went there! While thoughts such as these are often the delusional byproduct of exotic fungal infections and/or party drugs, in this case the idea was non-hallucinatory, as plane tickets to North Carolina were purchased and (more improbably) venues were secured. The girls entertained North Carolinians with performances at the OUT! Raleigh festival and at the CTG Theatre in downtown Greensboro. For more upcoming dates, see calendar for details.

New Music Video!

Apr 20, 2015

Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, and a cavalcade of blonde women who host Fox News are skewered in a brand new Kinsey Sicks music video, “What Does Fox News Say?” You’ll want to watch the video at least twice (the second time, pay close attention to the news feed at the bottom of the screen). Then, share with all the Fox News fans and other loved ones in your life!
