Madame Royale will you take the scousers to church?! – ANNOUNCEMENT

Hey guys!!! Welcome back to MikeyMix!! As a few of you may recall, a couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of attending the Aja and Farrah Moan gig that was held at the ‘KLUBLAND’ Bar in Blackpool, UK.

Since I attended this gig (and had an excellent time, it’s safe to say the girls definitely delivered!), the kind people over at ‘KLUBKIDS UK’ (a company which specialises in bringing the drag artists of America to the UK) have invited me to the Latrice Royale gig at ‘Heaven Nightclub’, for those unaware ‘Heaven’ is an immensely popular nightclub in my hometown of Liverpool.

For those who aren’t fans of drag race; Latrice Royale, is an all time fan favourite having won over our hearts on season four of the hit show (unfortunately she didn’t win but that didn’t stop her from going on to have an excellent career!) and was invited to compete again in the first season of Drag Race spin-off ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars’ in which she and drag race alumni Manila Luzon competed together following the “double-up” twist.

Latrice will be appearing in ‘Heaven Nightclub’ on Sunday August 20 and tickets (whilst still available) can be purchased by visiting the following link: TICKETS HERE

Show Times:

Doors open: 8PM

Show Time: 9PM

Meet & Greet: After conclusion of show

(TIMES ARE CONDITIONAL)

Ticket Prices:

  • STANDARD SHOW ENTRY – £10 (WITH A £1.21 BOOKING FEE)

  • VIP MEET & GREEN (GIVES HOLDERS ENTRY TO THE EVENT AND AN OPPORTUNITY TO MEET LATRICE AFTER THE SHOW) – £35 (WITH A £2.76 BOOKING FEE)

After the show I will upload a vlog of my experience onto my YouTube channel (MikeyMixTV) if you haven’t subscribed already be sure to as this vlog (which will include an interview with Royale herself is not to be missed!!).

The gig is definitely going to be amazing as Latrice Royale is one hell of a performer and knows what the fans want: if I can get her to say the iconic line, “get those nuts away from my face” on camera I will die happy!! Hope to see some of you there, until next time: stay safe, be happy and keep on jammin!

COME ON BLACKPOOL LET’S GET SICKENING!!…..(& life update!!)

Hello everyone…welcome back to MikeyMix!! Hope you’re all well and haven’t missed me too much (I know I said I’d be blogging a lot more now that I’m off university for summer and I apologise for not keeping up with my end of the promise)!

For today’s post I will be catching up with you all and then announcing an event I have very kindly been granted access to attend!

So, as you all know I’ve been doing a lot on my YouTube channel (MikeyMixTV linked here) and recently I achieved my first subscriber milestone: although hitting 50 subscribers seem’s like nothing to most people to me I’m really proud because it is hard trying to get noticed on YouTube when you live so far away from London and have other commitments in life (university, general life and of course part time work).

I’ve also started live streaming on YouNow (follow me @MikeyMixTV!) and I honestly love it! I don’t know why people would enjoy just watching me chat to my phone whilst sitting on the couch but weirdly people really seem to like it, me and my personality!

Now on to the announcement: if you don’t recognise the quote briefly referenced within the title of the post it’s from a little show entitled: RuPaul’s Drag Race. For those unaware the show is reality television competition in which female impersonators compete against each other in order to win a cash prize of $100,000 and the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar” (honestly I think the easiest way to describe the show would be to say: “It’s like America’s Next Top Model meets Project Runway meets Lip Sync Battle but with drag queens”).

The show has recently completed its 9th season and since it’s launch in 2009 the show has went on to become quite a hit and has developed a devote cult following because of this a number of contestants have reached great levels of fame and acclaim.

Two fan favourites from this season (whom unfortunately didn’t win), Farrah Moan (left) and Aja (right) will be visiting ‘KLUBLAND’ (a bar in Blackpool, Lancashire, UK) on July 9. Fans of the show will have the opportunity to purchase tickets to either see the girls perform, those wanting to meet the girls and have a professional photograph taken to commemorate the occasion are also welcome to purchase a “Meet & Greet” ticket.

The event will be hosted by two UK based entertainers, both of whom have quite stellar careers!: Silver Summers (best known for her appearances in television series ‘Drag Queens of London’) and The Vivienne (RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Ambassador).

Thanks to the kind people over at “Connor Matthew Productions” (organisers of the event) I’ll be attending the event along with 3 of my friends. I’m hoping to make a vlog of the event (which will be uploaded directly to my YouTube channel shortly after the event) and will be conducting several live streams throughout the night.

Tickets for the event are still available and can be purchased here

Ticket Prices:

Standard Entry [show only]: £20 (and a £1.83 booking fee)

Meet and Greet [includes show, meeting with the girls and professional photo]: £30 (and a £2.45 booking fee)

(PLEASE NOTE: Tickets are subject to availability)

Katy Perry: “Bon Appétit” – REVIEW

Good evening readers…welcome to MikeyMix! It’s been a while since I properly blogged and the reason for that is I have developed a new love for creating YouTube videos.

The Quest For Fame: The Impact of Reality Television in Music

Good afternoon readers, welcome to MikeyMix! For today’s blog post I am going to be showcasing something different: as part of my coursework for university I was required to create a two-minute video news piece on a topic of my choice, I chose the impact televised talent shows is having on musicians and entertainers.

I’m going to embed the video below as I am very happy with how it turned out (I’m far from the best editor in the world so just bare that in mind!), I hope you all enjoy watching it:

(Be sure to check out the social media pages of all my interviewees as they are all immensely talented and deserve the promo!)

I understand this is a very short blog post but rest assured I will be reviewing the new single by Halsey shortly after it’s release in the UK later tonight.

However, do let me know if you’d be interested in me potentially creating more videos (I’m very tempted to experiment with vlogging?).

Until next time: stay safe, be happy and keep on jamming!!
