CNN profiles The Kinsey Sicks!
Apr 22, 2016
CNN Politics just released a fantastic article and a special 4-minute video profile on The Kinsey Sicks and our hit election year show, “Electile Dysfunction 2016”. Featuring live footage of our recent New York performance at The Metropolitan Room, plus backstage interviews with not only the gals but also the boys behind the gals, the just-released segment is already creating a stir!
To see the piece, go HERE! Then share it widely on social media and be a part of the conversation!
(Note: the video has generated a lot of homophobic responses on YouTube. Feel free to add a more reasonable voice, and to tell everyone you know to do the same. Here’s the YouTube version: youtu.be/Os2A2TqjrLo)
The Kinsey Sicks Release 9th Album: “Eight is Enough"!
Apr 17, 2016
Move over, Pitch Perfect! THE KINSEY SICKS, America’s Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet for over twenty years, are set to release our ninth album, Eight Is Enough! The 21-song album will be released May 1. But there’s no need to wait til then — you can make a bad impulse shopping decision right now! In fact, as a bonus for people order too fast to think clearly, we’ll send autographed copies to the first fifty people who pre-order HERE. And while you’re pre-ordering, why not compound your mistake by also purchasing Kinsey t-shirts, DVDs, refrigerator magnets, posters, picture frames or our other albums?
On Eight Is Enough, THE KINSEY SICKS take on political satire in our own inimitable way. We mischievously retool Irving Berlin (“Putin in the Ritz”), skewer right-wing media (“What Does Fox News Say?”) and offer our, uh...unique perspectives on such issues as gun control (“Get a Gun”) and feminism (“Girls Like”). And if that doesn’t offend you, we twist childhood classics you’ll never hear the same way again (“A Whole New Hole”, “Pretty Sh*tty Gang Bang” and more!)
In addition to original songs penned by KINSEY SICKS co-founder and lyricist Ben Schatz, the album includes wicked parodies that re-purpose music ranging from Pharrell and Carole King to an old Shirley Temple tune thrown in for good measure. The biting satire is complemented by the customary KINSEY SICKS servings of raunch, making Eight Is Enough perfect not only for savvy listeners but for their low-brow friends and family as well. The album is performed by THE KINSEY SICKS entirely in glorious four-part a cappella harmony.
