The music and cultural landscape is set to shift dramatically with the arrival of BERTHA, the world’s first Grateful Drag band. This all-star ensemble of queer and allied talent from East Nashville is pioneering a spectacular blend of music, performance art, and activism, all while donning wigs and full drag. The group has announced an eagerly awaited performance at the Fox Theatre on Thursday, November 21, 2024.

BERTHA is not just a band; it’s a movement. Fronted by a harmony trio of performers all adopting the persona of Bertha, and supported by an all-Bertha backing band, this collective has quickly won over Deadheads and new fans alike across the nation. Their performances are more than just concerts; they are celebrations of diversity, unity, and the transformative power of music.

Having already made waves from coast to coast and collaborating with local drag talents in Mexico, BERTHA’s influence is rapidly expanding. Their unique blend of Grateful Dead-inspired tunes with a drag twist has carved out a new niche in the live music scene. The Fox Theatre show promises to be a culmination of their trailblazing journey so far.
