More Unpredictable set to be outrageous with Daisy Rae as new emcee
The people behind More Unpredictable are keeping the event true to its name. With the fashion show and silent auction less than a week away, the event’s co-chairs announced this weekend a new emcee will be hosting the April 26 event.
Nashville drag queen Daisy Rae will emcee the fundraiser for the Nashville GLBT Chamber of Commerce. She plans to bring a new, comedic perspective to the show with her unique style of campy glamour.
“I am big, beautiful and over-the-top,” said the statuesque Daisy Rae, who stands six-feet-nine in heels. “I’ll do anything to put a smile on the crowd’s face.”
Daisy Rae will be amidst an explosion of sequence and stilettos this week as she prepares to bring her uniquely funny class and sass to the event. With the addition of Daisy Rae to the show’s lineup, More Unpredictable, presented by Bridgestone and Gish, Sherwood and Friends, promises to bring together the best in fashion, art, dance and drag for a truly eclectic experience.
Fashion from Shyne, Duff Clothing and Clothing Xchange will be featured during the show which will be held at PLAY Dance Bar, located at 1519 Church St. in Nashville. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for the silent auction and More Unpredictable food buffet. The auction will be concluded when the show begins at 7 p.m.
Dance company Nashville in Motion will debut two new performances blending the styles of ballet, hip hop, jazz and modern dance and Daisy Rae will perform up to three new numbers which will incorporate the fashion theme and may include some of the models as supporting cast.
“Whatever it is, plan for it to be outrageous and wild,” Daisy Rae said.
Daisy Rae jump-started her drag career on a whim in June 2006 when she performed Aretha Franklin’s “Think” during amateur night at the Chute in Nashville.
“After my first time on stage, I was hooked,” Daisy Rae said.
Only six months later, she was hired as host and emcee at Nashville’s Lucky’s Garage and worked there for more than a year until the bar closed its doors. Even then, she maintained a presence in the GLBT and greater Nashville community entertaining at the Nashville Pride Festival and attending Artrageous in over-the-top outfits keeping with the charity-event’s theme.
Now, she can be found at Tribe on Wednesday nights hosting Hump Day with Daisy Rae, where patrons participate in her hilarious take on games such as The Dating Game and Project Runway. Last month, she also joined the cast of PLAY Dance Bar for their Sunday night drag shows.
Even with such a full plate, Daisy Rae said she is thrilled to come on board as emcee of More Unpredictable.
“I want to help out with any kind of charitable event to support the GLBT community,” Daisy Rae said. “There’s nothing I wouldn’t do to help.”
