Backdoor Boys Bring Gay Cabaret to Helsinki Hudson

(HUDSON, N.Y.) – The Backdoor Boys bring their satirical revue to Club Helsinki Hudson on Sunday, April 30, at 7pm, in a cabaret to benefit the Hudson Pride Foundation.

The Backdoor Boys are not quite like other boy bands. In their new show, “Bring on the Men!,” they draw on material from the musical theater, pre-rock pop standards, and the counterculture music scene. They put a new spin on some old favorites and explore lesser-known socially and politically satirical numbers.

In the tradition of “Broadway Backwards” and revues such as “Whoop-de-Doo!” and “When Pigs Fly,” the Backdoor Boys – Craig Cunningham and Kevin Weldon – sing and joke their way through contemporary life, looking at the world through lavender-colored glasses, as it were.

Separately, Cunningham and Weldon have crisscrossed the globe performing on Broadway, throughout the U.S., Canada, Middle East and Europe. Audiences have enjoyed their work on radio, TV, and all types of venues from Radio City Music Hall and the concert stages of Europe to intimate cabaret clubs in New York City, like Don’t Tell Mama’s and Eighty Eights.

This evening is a fundraiser for the Hudson Pride Foundation.

For reservations in The Restaurant or in the club call 518.828.4800.
