Big Freedia (pronounced “Free-da”) is the undisputed “Queen Diva” of Bounce Music, and performs six or more times a week in various venues throughout her home town of New Orleans. Bounce Music is an original urban music rising up from the intimate and fun-loving nature of the New Orleans housing projects which dominate the city’s street culture, and Freedia performs a derivative of Bounce reserved for self-proclaimed “Sissies” (a locally used name for biological men with varied and ambiguous sexual identities) that has risen to prominence in recent years and features explicitly gay and cross-dressing musicians and themes.
Since 2009 Freedia has begun traveling outside the city regularly with her dancers and live DJ, Rusty Lazer, playing to audiences on the East and West Coast alongside (or onstage with) artists such as Spank Rock, Major Lazer, Ninjasonik, Japanther, Monique and many more.
Beyondadoubt is a Portland tastemaker. Pulling from her Southern roots, she has brought originality to Portland nightlife for years. Her ground-breaking monthly, I’ve Got a Hole in My Soul has achieved legendary status with soul heavyweights around the country. At Buck and Bounce, expect to hear an arsenal of original, high-powered booty edits and a storm of her Bounce & Memphis favs.
