Opening hearts and minds through music one cabaret at a time.


Arnaldo is not just another drag act. Arnaldo is "Just An Old Fashioned Girl" and about as close to an old time night club chanteuse as we're likely to find on today's scene. Armed with an hour's worth of well-chosen songs, fun banter and laid back ease with an audience, this drag is no drag. He's the real deal in a world where prejudices and quick judgements are too often the norm.

We attended the (Seattle) Cabaret Festival (2024) and were delighted by the highly entertaining performance!  Arnaldo DragChanteuse was the star of the show ... he's a riveting performer, and the whole evening was so much fun.
