The 5th anniversary of our club is going to be solemnly celebrated on Saturday, April 16th. To this so special an evening (both for us and our dearest loyal guests) much of splendour will be added by the best known and most outstanding Czech band consisting of 4 tremendous drag queens. You are about to witness a show Poland has never ever hosted in any of its gay clubs so far!
The members of Hanky Panky serve to all sorts of events in their own country and abroad: in clubs, restaurants, community centres, concert halls (Show Iluze, Travesti Kabaret, Christmas-Vánoční Show) as well as on the open air scene (Summer-Letní Show). Except for the above mentioned standard performances (all in two parts, each 30, 45 or 60 minutes long) they also give shows composed according to a certain customer's request (Key Performance – Vystoupení na klíč) like at wedding parties. The band is best at presenting drag versions of the hottest hits of the world's music, but can also prepare a full-length concept-performance if a need be. Perfect theatrical background, wonderful and well-trained voices, thorough musical setting and overwhelming attire are for what Hanky Panky guys are really worth being seen.
The group was founded in 2002 by Stephany (Martin), who took part in the Czech-Slovak editions of the „Big Brother” and „I Have a Talent” TV shows, and for 17 years – with Nadja Mini (Vojta) and Valerie (Sergey) – had been a member of a very much alike parodical band Screamers. The three men were later supported by Jennifer Mega (Pavel), a former member of the Scandal Ladies formation.
