Dragapella fiesta with the Kinsey quartet
Beginning life after going to a Bette Midler gig dressed as the Andrews Sisters, the Kinsey Sicks are a ballsy (excuse the pun) bunch of drag queens with special skills in the a cappella singing department. Describing themselves as 'dragapella', the talented quartet (named after the Kinsey scale of human sexuality, which grades homosexuality as number six) are Winnie the sensible one (she's got glasses), Rachel the gruff one with extra hair, Trixie the glamour puss and Trampolina, the ditzy one who needs a wee.
Competing in a generic reality TV show in which no one will come out a true winner, the four sing unashamedly bawdy numbers with gusto, with lyrics changed to make reference to blow jobs, STDs and the sheep-seducing tendencies of a hapless audience member (who, unlike in most Fringe shows, completely laps up the attention).
Their topics may not be the most original or written in a particularly inventive fashion but that doesn't matter. The songs are performed with such gusto, skill and a huge sense of fun by the Kinsey Sicks. A perfect way to end the night. Or, for that matter, begin it.
