Bianca Paige finds new home at Lucky’s Garage

On Friday, June 15, Lucky’s Garage hosted the first Lucky’s La Cage performance featuring legendary Nashville entertainer, Bianca Paige. In typical form, Bianca thrilled a packed house by debuting a new and sprawling medley of songs all with the word "Lucky" in them.  

After relocating from his hometown of Paducah, Kentucky more than 20 years ago, Mark Middleton created the fun-loving character everyone has come to know and love as Bianca Paige. Over these past two decades, Bianca has entertained countless audiences across the nation and worked tirelessly for numerous charitable causes.

Bianca Paige, The Pantomime Rage as she is often intro-ed, is perhaps Nashville’s fiercest, funniest and most recognized drag queen. Known for her raspy voice and an unquenchable thirst for “cock-tails,” Bianca has been entertaining Nashvillians for twenty-two years.

She comes to Lucky's Garage having reached yet another milestone in her career — being crowned Miss State of Tennessee. Bianca has over 20 titles to her name with additional current titles including Miss Music City and “Favorite Drag Queen” in both the Out & About Newspaper and Church Street Freedom Press reader polls.

“The time has come in my journey to take a different road to where I need to be,” said Bianca. “I am looking forward to 20 more years of being blessed with Tony Daniel and the family at Lucky’s Garage. I can’t express the love I continue to feel from all you wonderful people out there in the dark…my audience,” she added.

A scheduled performer at nearly all GLBT charitable events in Nashville, Bianca works tirelessly for many fundraising events and a variety of organizations such as Nashville CARES, Nashville Pride, the Vanderbilt AIDS Vaccine unit, Vanderbilt Children with AIDS, The Conductors, Human Rights Campaign and the Comprehensive Care Center. She is also the honored spokesperson for “The Bianca Paige Awareness Network,” an organization dedicated to AIDS awareness and prevention.

Paige has most recently performed as the Master of Ceremonies at The Chute Complex for the past five years after serving as the Show Director at The Connection Nashville for four years. She has also starred in the Nashville production of Torch Song Trilogy and held supporting roles in SITCOM and Ain’t We Got Fun.

Lucky’s La Cage performs every Friday and Saturday night at 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. at Lucky’s Garage. Fellow cast members include Summer Alexander, Robinn Dupree’, Tyrah Hunter, NeCe Sexton and Big Mamma Daisy Rae Welch.

Lucky’s is open Tuesday through Sunday with no cover charge Tuesday through Thursday or Sunday. There is also no cover before 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, so get there early and save a few bucks. Tuesday through Friday features a happy hour from 5 to 8 p.m. with two for one well drinks and $2 domestic drafts.

Lucky’s Garage is located near the intersection of Church Street and 14th Avenue, next to Hollywood Hustler. The entrance to the club is on the alley and faces Church Street. Free secure parking for the club is located at the back of the building.

Lucky’s customers can sign up for regular emails that will notify them of the club’s weekly and special events. For more information about Lucky’s or to sign up for their emails, visit

As an LGBTQ+ patient, you should be able to expect the same high-quality care provided to all patients. Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily always prove to be the case. There remains a notoriously significant disparity in healthcare outcomes for LGBTQ+ patients, often related to issues with discrimination among providers.

Even when you find a good physician, this doesn’t mean that everyone interacting with your healthcare information will be as respectful or responsible. It is, therefore, important to be vigilant about how your data is handled. You have a right to privacy just as you have an expectation of fair treatment.
