ANITA PROCEDURE, aka the Baritone Bombshell, has been taking Los Angeles by storm since 2016, making a name for herself with killer vocals and vintage glamour. She hosts karaoke every Tuesday at Revolver in West Hollywood, and is the host/curator of A Queer Cabaret, a bi-monthly variety show at Darren Criss’ Tramp Stamp Granny’s in Hollywood. Anita has appeared on TV, on Paramount’s “Lip Sync Battle” as Sporty Spice alongside Rita Ora as Scary Spice, and on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen as Dorit Kemsely of Real Housewives fame. She can also be seen in the upcoming short film “The Cocoa Fondue Show” alongside Bob the Drag Queen, Ginger Minj, Jackie Beat, and Manila Luzon. @anitaprocedure

After years of studying, performing, and writing a wide range of music with artists including Josh Groban, Herbie Hancock, Barry Manilow and Michael Feinstein, Los Angeles-native twin composers and multi-instrumentalists Jack and Benny Lipson united to birth the project jackbenny, which injects musical theater storytelling into the gamut of artistic styles. They shared their debut show in 2016 with musician-comedian Reggie Watts, and have since played their “sensational, clever, and astute” originals in Los Angeles, New York, and Sheridan, Wyoming, where they presented their “musicalette,” Miranda, Please! through the Wyoming Theater Festival. Oh, and Falam, Myanmar too. As the house band for Anita Procedure’s bimonthly Queer Cabaret, jackbenny has backed up Darren Criss and Michael Arden, and they play regularly with undie-rockers The Skivvies throughout the West Coast. jackbenny performs once a month in residency at the Lyric Hyperion Theater in Los Angeles, and are developing The Brainstorm, a 3-character song cycle that they’ll present this September.
