Queen April is a professional DJ, actress, alternative model, burlesque/fetish performer, and the naughty sovereign of the southeast. From her throne in Asheville, NC, the 'Paris of the South,' Her Majesty reigns supreme with her gothic proclivities, serious collection of wigs, and her total obsession with all things '80s. As a solo artist, a former member of the highly acclaimed Bootstraps Burlesque, and the founder of popular fetish troupe Theatre de Fetiche, the Queen has performed her fetishy brand of burlesque all over the south. She is a staunch supporter of the arts community throughout her realm, advises on many event councils - including the North Carolina Fetish Art Festival, the Asheville Area Arts Council's 2012 color ball, and the Americana, Burlesque, and Sideshow Festival where she is also the music coordinatrix - and is the headmistress of the Asheville branch of Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School. Sometimes silly. Sometimes serious. Always naughty.
