First emerging from the British punk and rock underground in the late 70s, Murphy (along with bandmates Daniel Ash, David J and Kevin Haskins) fronted the groundbreaking iconic rock band Bauhaus which spawned four iconoclastic and ultra- seminal albums as well as keystone singles “She's In Parties,” "Silent Hedges,” and, of course, "Bela Lugosi’s Dead" before disbanding in 1983. Murphy launched a successful solo career that has yielded ten solo albums so far, including his latest LION, released in 2014.
New Orleans based Drag, Musician, Performance and Visual Artist and Queer Witch. Vinsantos is the Head Mister-ess of the New Orleans Drag Workshop.
Hailing from the Barbary Coast,and currently residing in New Orleans, Vinsantos got an early start experimenting with the stage playing the lead in his Christian Elementary school's production of Samson and Delilah. And yes, he played Samson, and yes he wore a wig. Fast forward into the Middle school years, he made his first musical debut playing a fierce rendition of Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" putting this artist WAY ahead of their own time. Moving into the hormonal years, this lead to several bands, none of them successful. Reaching the late 90's, Vinsantos discovered the world of the San Francisco Underground Drag Performance Art circuit and cut her nails working with the children of Trannyshack and Midnight Mass fame, earning her title of Miss Trannyshack 2000 and The Macabre Snob. From there, the entire history transformed this Queen into a collage that created this multi disciplinary artist. Playing with live music, via piano and vocals, the art of Drag, film, the spoken word and the visual arts, it's hard hard to know what to expect from Vinsantos because she rarely knows herself what she has planned next. Vinsantos has had the opportunity to work across the country (and other places) with many of her favorite artist including Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, Peaches Christ, David J (Bauhaus/Love and Rockets), Jackie Beat, Jinx Monsoon, Ben DeLa Creme, Bella Blue and practically every Drag Race and Burlesque star that's not a total C#($*!!!!. Love it or hate it, you won't soon forget it, so it's best just to get with the program.

As a gesture of respect from one consummate showman to another, legendary musician PETER MURPHY has announced that he will be performing a special tribute to the late, great DAVID BOWIE. As the final show of his two week residency in which he will perform his solo albums in their entirety plus three “Mr. Moonlight” sets of Bauhaus music, Peter will honor the music of the Starman by performing songs selected from Bowie's catalog. Says Peter of the show, "Now that all and sundry have fallen off the David Bowie tribute band wagon, I thought I'd do my own.”
