Spreadin' the honey - Honey Bucket and company live up to the hype with 'Ghetto Trailer'

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Mizz Honey Bucket, the drag queen rapper of 'Bacon Strip' fame, headlined 'Mizz Honey's Ghetto Trailer' November 15 at Re-bar (1114 Howell St.). As with any Honey Bucket show, one would come to expect raunchy humor, skilled raps, and some go-go bears. While 'Ghetto Trailer' had all of those things, there was something more to Friday's show that did not go unnoticed: A diverse audience of adoring fans.

It would seem that Mizz Honey has been spreadin' her, uhmmm ... honey around, and Seattle audiences can't get enough.

In the audience were Re-bar elite (you know, the ones who attend anything that happens at Seattle's lovely come-as-you-are establishment), bloggers, city of Seattle employees, bears (lots of them), straights, Gays, you name 'em - they were there. And they knew her lyrics, too. On more than one occasion Mizz Honey Bucket (pronounced boo-KAY) turned the mic around to the audience and they sang back in near-perfect form.

One of the things I thought was most interesting is Mizz Honey Bucket's wardrobe. That's right, drag rap fans, I said 'wardrobe.' That is because she wore more than one piece and had at least three costume changes. Now, this is something that made me smile because I have seen (and I know you have, too) many a drag show where the host or headliner didn't bother to do even one costume change - let alone three! In this category, Mizz 'no class' Honey exuded plenty of it! Now, granted, Honey's wardrobe isn't exactly the finest of the season - in fact, it probably wasn't ever the finest of any season, but it works. And that isn't easy. To look as ridiculous as Mizz Honey does, and make it as believable as she does, takes talent. The 'Connie' is always on display (which is where dollar bills go, apparently).

ALL THE CLASSICS
Mizz Honey Bucket performed a lot of songs from her 2013 release American Ho. She rapped 'Nice Gut, Big Package' and other well-known 'hits' such as 'Tranny' (set to the tune of the 1960s hit 'Windy') and the song that she told the audience 'made it possible for Mizz Honey Bucket to be on this stage' - 'My Connie.' In addition, Mizz Honey Bucket performed other songs that the crowd seemed to adore, like 'Drunk On' and others that seemed to fit the bill nicely.

Although Mizz Honey's 'connie' and afro are more than enough to fill a two-hour show, she brought along some friends for the evening. DJ Lu Ying was on sound while DJ Ricki Leigh played the beats. The evening was billed as a night of live hip-hop, R&B, and soul performances with the emphasis on the word 'live.' Local recording artist and Latino heartthrob VELO performed two songs including 'We Like to Party,' a hit on YouTube with nearly 16,000 views, and drag queen vocalist Sashay Supernova did an amazing job with Etta James' 'All I Could Do Was Cry.' Also along for the ghetto-themed trailer-park variety show was the always entertaining and self-described 'lunatic drag artist' Cherry Sur Bête.

All in all, I would recommend any Mizz Honey Bucket show for anyone looking for fun without all the pretention of a normal drag affair. (Not to say that Seattle's drag scene is pretentious, mind you, but you get my drift.) Mizz Honey Bucket, like Dina Martina, is something to behold. They are characters you just have to see to believe and when they leave the stage, you find yourself wanting more and you don't even know why. Like Dina, it is so very fitting that Mizz Honey graces the Re-bar stage. Where would we be without that venue?
