    Divas & Drinks @ The Academy SF Third Annual Halloween Party

    The Shake It! Booty Band lived up to their name on Friday, October 27, making their first appearance at The Academy SF with a high energy funky disco performance. Bandmates Peggy Dove, Andrea Prichett, B.C. Cliver, Deborah Hungerford, Catlin Small, Kasey Knudsen, Marina Garza, and Katrine Spang-Hanssen rocked the house and did so in costume.

    See and hear the band performing “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)”:

    Emcee Donna Sachet—dressed magnificently as the “Spirit of Winter”—and the always amazing DJ Rockaway, presented by Olivia Travel, led a lively costume party with judges Melissa Cherry of Dykes on Bikesâ, event producer and singer Janet Rachel, and Jon Koriel representing presenting sponsor Comcast/Xfinity.

    Winners included Tinka Bush and friends as “The Third Wheel,” First Place for Most Original; Stacy Poulos as “The Marshal,” Sexiest Contestant: and Stephanie Lacambra as “Maleficent,” Scariest of All.

    Prizes were provided by The Legend of Georgia McBride, playing at the Lesher Center for the Arts, November 4–26; and Ross Matthews, presented by Live Nation at the Palace of Fine Arts, November 17; and Divas & Drinks sponsor Bacardí.

    Thanks to all of our ongoing Divas & Drinks supporters, friends, and valued partners The Academy SF, Bacardí, Extreme Pizza, Olivia Travel, and the San Francisco Federal Credit Union.
