About Me

as a musician & cabaret artist

This is the definitive “make your own work” section. John showcases his music on YouTube and around NYC, including a few years in a monthly gig at the legendary Stonewall Inn in Lavinia Draper’s show. His song, “Vampire Drag Queen”, can be bought on iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon and other online music stores, and last December, he released his debut album, Our First Christmas Together. He has performed and hosted all over the NYC bar/cabaret scene and was a popular contestant in Stonewall Sensation 11. Please contact him if you would like to book him for your club or event.
