CAB brings popular Kinsey Sicks to Bernhard Center

Feb. 1, 2005

KALAMAZOO--America's favorite "dragapella beauty shop quartet," the Kinsey Sicks, comes to Western Michigan University for a single performance at 9 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 10, in the East Ballroom of the Bernhard Center.

For more than a decade, the Kinsey Sicks have performed their unique music and comedy show to audiences across the country. Combining award-winning a cappella singing, sharp satire and over-the-top drag, the Kinsey Sicks have developed a large and loyal following.

Billboard Magazine called the show, "One of the more uniquely original, and thoroughly fun and entertaining, acts we have encountered in years. Hilarious... this is one act that should not be missed, either in person or on CD."

The Kinseys Sicks have been profiled on national television, including on "20/20" and "CBS Early Show with Bryant Gumbel," and were the subjects of a lengthy cover feature in the arts section of the New York Times. They have won numerous a cappella awards and have recorded four CDs: "Dragapella," "Boyz 2 Girlz," "Sicks in the City" and "I Wanna Be a Republican."

"This is sure to be an amazing show from a talented group of performers. Students are really looking forward to this performance," says Kelley Dineen, special events coordinator for WMU's Campus Activities Board, which is sponsoring the event. "CAB works hard in bringing unique and entertaining acts to campus, and the Kinsey Sicks will not disappoint the audience."

Tickets are $1 for WMU students with ID, $2 for all others and are available at the door.
