Kalamazoo Pride announces its 2015 entertainment lineup for what organizers have called the most diverse Kalamazoo Pride yet.
Entertainment for the 8th annual two-day event begins at 6 p.m. Friday, June 12 with a local DJ, the “Miss or Mister Kalamazoo Pride 2015” local drag competition and a radical performance by electronic/R&B artist Tunde Olaniran. Catfight, the all-girl band known as “the darlings” of the Chicago cover band scene, will play classic favorites and current chart-topping hits.
Performances on Saturday, June 13 will kick off at 2 p.m. with a local DJ and the performance artist DC. Nashville recording artist Brody Ray will return to Kalamazoo to showcase his rock and country sound which he honed on his recent EP release.
Saturday’s entertainment continues with Bianca del Rio, the season six reigning winner of the hit series RuPaul’s Drag Race. A self-proclaimed “clown in a dress,” Bianca has captivated fans with her sharp wit and dismembering humor. Headlining the event, Luciana, “The Queen of Electro,” is one of the world’s most prolific electronic music artists, and she brings her unique sound to Kalamazoo.
Additional performers are still being added, and Pride’s organizers hope to share a few more surprises soon.
