We are very excited to announce these performers will appear on our stage:
Bobby Jo Valentine
Hope-folk, soul-pop, poetic rock…Bobby Jo Valentine’s music exists outside the lines of any genre. The music’s thoughtful lyrics and catchy melodies reach listeners on all paths of life, and the authentic, universal, uncanny nature of his songs have won him Songwriter of the Year at West Coast Songwriter’s Association twice. — from Bobby Jo’s website
“Who would have supposed a girl group singing parody songs about fiber, bidets, and bras would have survived, let alone flourished in Utah? Well, they have. In fact, they’ve become an institution. In 20-something years of melody, mirth and mucous, they have performed for groups as varied as the Western Republican Governors and the Gay Rodeo.” — from their website
MiNX is a pop-rock duo, playing upbeat fun and funky music. “MiNX infuses their performance with visual elements, sometimes campy and vaudevillian, and the costumes and stage-props are simply cherries on top of the already compelling show.” — from their website.
Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, Leo has a smooth and defining tone along with a slight twang that makes him memorable among so many. … After a year on tour Leo headed back to Utah and decided it was time to create his own stamp on music. … Leo strives to create music that will influence people and make a memorable mark with his voice. — ReverbNation
Utah-based Juana Ghani is a 10-piece acoustic Gypsy rock band that mixes original compositions and traditional world folk songs, infusing them with punk energy and theatric sensibility to create a cabaret-meets-rock-n-roll feel.
From their website: “Orphans Cabaret started in the clear air of the high Uintahs with the musical artistry of Leisl and Brian Bonelli. Taking the musical lessons learned from previous successful projects and, using these lessons, they created the Orphans Cabaret. The Bonellis’ love for wonderfully unique music from all over the world has always fueled their creativity. Orphans Cabaret is no exception.”

Imperial Rainbow Court of Northern Utah
& Royal Court of the Golden Spike Empire
When most people think of IRCONU and RCGSE, the first thought that comes to mind are drag queens. But the organizations are much more than that. As part of the International Imperial Court System, the local chapters hold functions and fundraisers for the enjoyment of the community, raise money for charitable organizations, and help those in the community who are in need of assistance.
The Ziegfeld Theater is about art, collaboration, and acceptance. Their driving motto is “Professional standard, community spirit,” and it drives every aspect of their work.
