Selina Kyle

One of the Original Divas of the North Shore got her start at the young age of just 18 at Fran’s Place in Lynn. Over a decade later, she has established herself as truly a class act! One of her favorite things to do is unify the community through sharing her talents outside of the typical nightclub atmosphere. She is the perfect balance between classic Hollywood elegance and modern trendy Fierceness! She is known for her, professionalism and will always take time to help newcomers grow and learn. We could not be happier to have Selina this year

Thom Cox Quintet

Kerr Griffin

“If you are looking for a local singer/songwriter to crush out on while he croons onstage or if you just happen to like original, heartfelt lyrics that sound like they are being sung to you and only you, check out Kerr Griffin. Kerr has a welcoming and easy stage presence, can switch gears from covering Jonathan Coulton and Queen to strumming along to his own pieces, and rocks the Buddy Holly glasses like nobody’s business. Nimble-fingered and smooth-voiced, Kerr brings the talent and charisma to any stage and the Queer Open Mic has been fortunate to have him.” — Mimi, Queer Open Mic Host
