America's Favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet Performs Nov. 5 thru Nov. 8
CHICAGO — The Kinsey Sicks are returning to Chicago for four brand new shows of new material and as they put it "some of their
least unpopular songs!" America's favorite Dragapella Beautyshop Quartet performed early this Spring in Chicago to two sold out
shows and now bring their spectacular show back for four nights "straight" (so to speak). An eclectic mixture of style, shtick and song,
Kinsey Sicks is a must-see!
The Kinsey Sicks, in their colorful Kennedy-era cocktail dresses and with their witty banter and clever songs described as "barber
shop meets Barbarella" perform Wednesday, November 5 through Saturday, November 8 at The Eagle, 5015 N. Clark in Chicago, 8
p.m. showtime (doors open at 7:30 p.m.). Tickets are already selling fast so call today to reserve your seats.
The four gentlemen who make up Kinsey aren't your average singers – their super intelligent lyrics, awesome harmonies and
imaginative parodies entertain from start to encore after encore. The members include Winnie (former Chicagoan Irwin Keller),
Rachel (Ben Schatz), Trixie (Kevin Smith Kirkwood) and Trampolina (Chris Dilley).
Favorite audience tunes include "Locked Out of the Chapel of Love," "IKEA" sung to the tune of "Maria," "AZT" (a combination of "The
Love You Save" and "ABC") and many more that will leave you gasping from shock or laughing hysterically.
Here's some mainstream media quotes regarding Kinsey Sicks:
"Loved it!" — Michael Musto, Village Voice
"Get thyself to Dragapella!" — Liz Smith "One of the more uniquely original acts we have encountered" — Billboard Magazine "The
hottest ticket in town" — New York Times "Inventive…riotously funny…sublime" — Variety
Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door. To order call Windy City Media Group at 773-871-7610 or email
