From New York City's alt-cabaret scene, Billy Lykken brings his queer brand of comedy and outrageous parody, as well as his interpretations of songs ranging from Broadway, R&B, jazz, and Tin Pan Alley, to Crazy Coqs, with musical direction by Yasuhiko Fukuoka.
This hyper-emotional journey of song, eyelash, and pizzazz is filtered through the soul of an often heartbroken, but never bitter, sequined songstress; whose eccentricities and self-destructive behaviour are overshadowed by an all-consuming need to please the faithful masses.
"An intense, eclectic show… a big elastic voice that borrows on the sounds and styling of great divas but remains his own" - New York Social Diary
"This is not drag, nor is it cabaret style; it is something else all together. Lykken is simply himself - or at least, who he presents himself to be on stage. His singing voice often operates in that gender-neutral range, evoking memories of Tallulah Bankhead and Eartha Kitt, but he's able to adjust the vocal style from Broadway belt to rock and roll growl. He can even croon a standard with intense feeling" - Nitelife Exchange
