“…Xavier radiates hot enough vocals and star power to leave the competition behind in the river. He puts the “I” back in “Icon”” – Michael Musto, Village Voice
MAMMA RICE is back for Pride Week at 54 Below performing your favorite campy, soulful, inspiring, and party-starting songs by Cher, Janet, Ani, Nina, and more, and telling stories the only way Mamma can- with vocal, video, and go-go boy magic!
This month, STEPHANIE UMOH joins Mamma as the newest Queen, singing a soulful rendition of “It’s Raining Men” and a few of her own favorite out-of-this-world tunes. You never know what other surprise guests might drop by! Past appearances at Late Nights with Mamma Rice include Justin Guarini, YouTube Fan favorites, Drag Queen Alexis Michelle, Disappointing Gay Best Friend/BuzzFeed’s Mikala Bierma, several zombies and more. Music Direction by Cap21’s Marshall Keating.
