The Supreme Fabulettes, London’s acclaimed all-male female close harmony vocal group, are marking the release of their new single, A Drag Queen is a Cowboy’s Best Friend, written by and video directed by Boy George, with eight West End shows.
And they are celebrating a coup in securing William Baker, Kylie Minogue’s Creative Director, to direct their live shows at Leicester Square Theatre, and their Manchester debut at The Lowry.
The Supreme Fabulettes became global internet sensations when the video for their first single, You Ruined My Xmas, also written and directed by Boy George, was viewed over 100,000 times in just 3 weeks.
Fans of American Johnny Hazzard, who starred in the Christmas video and as a hunky cowboy in their latest film, can also look forward to him making his London stage acting debut in live sketches with The Supreme Fabulettes.
“The last two months have been a whirlwind of TV news and radio shows and location filming,” said The Supreme Fabulettes. “We are honoured that Boy George has written two songs specially for us and directed hilarious videos, and now we have William Baker directing our live shows. Pinch us, please!”
The Supreme Fabulettes – Miss Vicki Vivacious, Miss Maddison Lee and Miss Vanilla Lush – have been acclaimed for combining slick choreography, amazing vocal harmonies, stunning couture outfits and signature Glee-style song mash-ups of classic 1960s hits and contemporary songs by likes of The Supremes, The Andrews Sisters, Adele, Alison Moyet and Beyonce among many others.
