The biggest party for Virginia’s LGBTQ community happens Sept. 12 at Brown’s Island, and the folks who will be keeping us dancing all day have just been released to the public!
Leading the pack is Dumblonde, an alternative Dance/Pop duo created by singer/songwriters Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex formerly of the multi-platinum, international, chart topping female group Danity Kane. The girls were discovered on the hit MTV show “Making the Band”, and grew to be noted in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the only girl group to have two number one consecutive albums on Billboard.
Next is American Idol Season 14 runner up Rayvon Owen, fresh off his 2014 debut EP, ’Cycles.’ Already having a large fan base across the U.S., he recently became a household name and “Twitter Save” champion as a Top 4 finalist on season 14 of “American Idol.” While on “Idol,” Rayvon performed with the likes of Jamie Foxx, Rickey Martin, Boy George and many others. Receiving rave reviews from major outlets, including People Magazine, USA Today and Billboard, he is noted, not only for his star quality and beautiful vocal tone, but for his ability to bring authenticity and emotion to his performances.
