Boiz 4 Now, the drag king group taking Texas by storm, will appear at Connect Nightclub’s Cherry Party Saturday, June 25 as part of Gay Pride Month.

Waco’s Connect Nightclub will host Cherry, Central Texas’ big party for lesbians and their friends as part of Central Texas Pride events, on Saturday, June 25. The party which is open to everyone will feature a show by BOIZ 4 NOW, Austin’s only drag king troupe whose lip-synched performances are drawing rave reviews across the state.

BOIZ 4 NOW was founded by Ali Martin and KT Crouch in October 2015 and combines traditional drag performance with elements of burlesque. The fresh new vibe of Austin’s Boiz bring an individuality and cohesive bond that is transforming the drag scene in the heart of Texas. From spine chilling strip teases to powerful social statements, the Boiz aren’t afraid to go there, and they bring it all from the soul.

Co-founder Martin says the group represents all kinds of gender expression and that each “king” has full control over the way they look, and how they perform.

“The point is to be whoever you want, feel how you want to feel, you don’t have to be rejected for it,” Martin said.

A spokesperson for Connect Nightclub said that all three of the club’s bars will be open for everyone who wants to celebrate diversity in Central Texas. The Cherry Party will be centered in the large show and dance area of Connect, while the patio and the side bar will also be booming with other activities.

The Cherry event follows a H.O.T. Illusions show on Friday, June 24th, starring celebrity impersonators Alix Courtnie of Austin, known for imitations of Marilyn Monroe and Wynonna Judd; Paige Forrester who is recognized for impersonations of Cher and other famous celebrities and Rusty Winters, whose will be doing several illusions including Reba McEntire.

Connect Nightclub is Central Texas’ premier alternative nightclub. It is located at 2812 N. 19th Street in Waco.  Doors open at 9 p.m. and cover for both the H.O.T. Illusions show on Friday and the Drag Kings and Cherry Party on Saturday is $5 each night. On Saturday, R Bar and the Patio Bar will also be open in Connect.
