Cyril Cinder is a dynamic drag king from Ottawa, Ontario with a background in stage performance and cosplay. Known for his high energy numbers and unique execution of creative concepts, this rock star loves to leave his audience feeling fired up. Performing in drag for over three years, this Canadian has found his away across the border to stages in the US and Europe for festival appearances. He'll be representing Canada at the Austin International Drag Festival as a selected artist in 2018. He's thrilled to be bringing his energy and style to the Milton Art Bank and be included among this cast of incredible kings!
From New Kids on the Block to Willy Wonka and the Gender Factory - and everything in between - Dallas has been bringing his unique mash-up of old school funk and new school swag to the party since 2003. Whether performing for sold out audiences at the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. or working the crowds on the dance floor, Dallas brings an electric combo of style and charm and always entertains!
E-Cleff joined the DC Drag Kings in 2003 and was voted D.C.’s Best Drag King for three years in a row. Some might say E-Cleff is known for his moves on and off-stage. He has performed in the D.C. metropolitan area, Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, and North Carolina, as well as across the border in Toronto, Canada. And, if you want a fun throwback, you can find him in the 2005 DC King Kalendar. To him, drag is “a second form of expression.” “For me it’s an escape, it’s a way to, kind of, live out your fantasies and entertain and, take on a different persona and be a different person,” he says. “That’s what drag means to me.” Though he doesn’t perform as frequently these days, you can still find him on the D.C. Capital Pride stage, George Mason’s Pride Show, and other special events.
Mr. Lee VaLone is the morally grey man in black. He is the current reigning Mr. Coney Island and the winner of the White Elephant Burlesque Entertainer of the year award. Mr. VaLone is a passionate lover of gonzo performance art, anarcho politics, and rock-n-roll bullshit. He is the producer of NYC's only All Drag King Showcase BEEFSHOW. He believes gender revolution is upon us, so take up your black flags and molotov cocktails and get ready to smash the patriarchy!
Hanniel Sindelar (Maxwell Treats ) is a transmasculine nonbinary performance artist with over a decade of experience in theatre, film, and cabaret. After a brief stint at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (NYC), they relocated to Harrisburg, PA where they've been clowning ever since. Along with Maxwell Treats, their drag alter-ego, they have toured their own brand of queer sideshow antics across the North East for the last 4 years, featuring acts that are sexy, sweet, and irreverent. As co-founder and artistic director of Sundae Best Variety Show, they have produced over 25 original shows since 2015. Featured as a selected performer at the Austin International Drag Festival in 2016 and 2017, they look forward to returning for their third year as they tour Sundae Best down south for the very first time. They work full time as the resident Costume Shop Manager/Designer at Open Stage of Harrisburg, where they also lead the OSHKids Performance Company.
DJ Jay D (Jill Twohig) is a NYC-based DJ who has been captivated by music ever since hearing ‘Afternoon Delight’ at a tender age. Focusing on uncommon songs, she spans genres from psychedelic to new wave to AM gold to disco and whatever tickles her fancy. DJ Jay D is currently a resident DJ at Nowhere in the East Village where she co-hosts Dizzy! (a new wave/shoegaze/goth night) and her own DAD (classic rock happy hour). She has co-hosted Mondo Tarot (a 60s & 70s psychedelic party) and played solo free form sets at various bars and events in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Philadelphia.
