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.

The Reverend Mr. Lee VaLone Velour 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!

Maxwell Treats is sexy, sweet and irreverent. A pretty boy gender bender who aims to confuse and delight.
