Today they’re confirmed as the first of a stellar line-up of special guest artists for our 2017 PARTY, to be held directly after the Mardi Gras Parade on Saturday 4 March.

The Canadian identical twin sisters have been favourites in LGBTQI venues since they formed in 1995, but have exploded into the mainstream with their last two records; 2013's Heartthrob and their most recent release, Love You to Death, including the singles “Boyfriend” and “Stop Desire”, produced by Greg Kurstin who has produced some of the world’s biggest names including Sia, Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Ellie Goulding to name a few.
