STAGE TUBE: Betsy Wolfe, Keala Settle & More Sing with the Skivvies at 54 Below!
Just last week, The Skivvies returned to 54 Below, back by popular demand. The "musically thrilling" undie-rock, comedy-pop duo don't just strip down their musical arrangements, they literally strip down to their underwear to perform their distinctive mashups and eccentric originals for cello and ukulele, with touches of glockenspiel, melodica, and a surprising array of under-used instruments. Check out highlights from their latest concert below!
Award-winning singer-actors Lauren Molina (Marry Me a Little, Sweeney Todd, Rock of Ages) and Nick Cearley (All Shook Up) became YouTube sensations as The Skivvies, with living room videos that displayed their powerful harmonies as well as their powerful abs. Those clips led to live shows that The Wall Street Journal called "smart, sophisticated...ingenious," and Out Magazine, "The Skivvies have managed to carve out a niche that we never knew needed to exist: part Weird Al- parody and part sexy burlesque...and unusual explosion of satire and sultry." They also have a single and music video directed by Augusten Burroughs, bestselling author of Running With Scissors.
Guests included: Alice Ripley, Keala Settle, Betsy Wolfe, Adam Kantor, Jason Tam, Steel Burkhardt, Asmeret Ghebremichael, Lauren Worsham, Matt Doyle, Christopher J. Hanke, Margo Seibert, and Lesli Margherita.
