Two Tuckers

Tickets available at: http://www.purplepass.com/2tuckers0409

Two Tuckers

TUCKER plays keys; GOLDEN loses them. TUCKER produces songs; GOLDEN produces gas. TUCKER has the voice of an angel; GOLDEN has the voice of a 7-foot tall man in a dress! Together, they’re TWO TUCKERS! For TUCKER it’s his name; for GOLDEN it’s her game (anatomical origami).

Time Out New York raves: “Two great forces…perform fabulous duets at this breakout show.”

TUCKER performs his original tunes all over NYC. You’ve heard his voice on SNL, iHeart Radio, Nickelodeon, and more. Paul Shaffer says: “TUCKER is the kind of guy who can bring a new sound to what’s happening, and before you know it, everybody will sound like him. TUCKER will have the longevity – and success – that comes from being an original. He’s the complete package.”

GOLDEN DELICIOUS is NYC’s juiciest drag apple: very sweet, prone to bruising. Since winning Cycle 2 of The Ultimate Drag Pageant, she’s become a frequent scene-stealer in the NYC drag community. You can catch her weekly online video series Teacher’s Pet Virtual Classroom on #SocialMedia. Marti Gould Cummings says: “Golden Delicious is just that: delicious!”

TWO TUCKERS will feature TWO SPECIAL GUESTS — singer-songwriter ARIANA GATES and comedian DAVE MIZZONI.
