Biography

Dr. Sick will be the Master of Ceremonies for the Queen of Burlesque competition. Singer. Composer. Multi-Instrumentalist. Producer. Artist. These 5 attributes describe the reputation of Dr. Sick from the perspective of the international music community. In the burlesque community, however, you might come across slightly different descriptions. Big Mouth. Sleaze Bag. Drunkard. Recently Acquitted. Stripper. Put’em all together and you’ve got the makings of a natural showman. That, or a musical about Capital Hill.

The facts remain, Dr. Sick has performed in 47 states and 13 countries spanning from North America to South East Asia to Europe, with several bands, troupes, films, carnivals or just solo, all over the last 14 years. Known for his quick wit and prowess on the violin, he’s currently one of the lead singers with platinum album selling Squirrel Nut Zippers, of early 1990’s fame. He joined the Zippers revival 3 years ago, led by the band’s founder Jimbo Mathus. Jimbo and Sick co-wrote and produced the latest album by SNZ, aptly titled Beasts of Burgundy, which musically is equal parts circus, burlesque, and a love letter the the city that care forgot, New Orleans, Louisiana. A resident of New Orleans on and off since 2001, Dr. Sick can be seen frequently playing jazz or announcing shows in and around the French Quarter, and has even been the featured guest announcer at Bustout Burlesque, which led to him becoming the original announcer for Bad Girls of Burlesque in 2014.
