NOTE: The Caravan of Glam fundraiser has been moved up to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 24 at the Jambalaya, not at 10 p.m. as had been previously reported in many media outlets.
ARCATA – The Caravan of GLAM, Portland Oregon’s own queer cabaret troupe, is coming to Humboldt County for their debut show on Saturday, May 24 at the Jambalaya, 915 H St. in Arcata.
The Caravan of GLAM consists of a rotating cast of over 50 performers from all over the Pacific Northwest and all the way down to San Francisco. The troupe consists of all genres of performers including drag, burlesque (male and female), S&M, acrobats, comedians, singers, gymnasts and sideshow performers.
The show’s executive producer, Justin Buckles, has nearly 15 years of experience in film, television and live event production having lived in Los Angeles and worked on such shows as American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, Gene Simmons Family Jewels and several other productions. Buckles has produced dozens of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer/questioning (LGBTQ) events in Portland over the past four years and is the creator, manager, and executive producer of all Caravan of GLAM events.
“Get ready for a show unlike anything that you’ve seen,” says Buckles. “My shows are very interactive and audience-driven. We will be down in the crowd, we will bring people up on stage, we will be showing a lot of skin, and we will have something for everyone. This will be a fantastic show filled with oohs, aahs, and things that will blow your mind. This is NOT your regular drag show, this is the Caravan of GLAM.”
The Caravan of GLAM produces bi-monthly shows throughout Oregon, as well as additional shows in Idaho and a just-booked casino show in Washington.
The Caravan of GLAM show at the Jambalaya runs two-and-a-half hours and features upwards of 24 acts, includding Ecstacy Inferno, Isaiah Esquire, Artemis Chase, Jayla Rose as well as local Humboldt County performers.
Doors open at 5 p.m., with the show starting at 6 p.m. (Note the new time.)There is a very limited amount of VIP seating, front and center, on a first-come, first-serve basis. Admission is $10/$20 with VIP seating.
The Caravan of GLAM is sponsored by Humboldt Pride and Queer Humboldt.
