As a founding member of the B-52s, Fred Schneider has been a cultural icon, a LGBTQ pioneer and a champion of polyester for the majority of his life. His quirky, halting manner of singing has made him instantly recognizable and this weekend he will loan that distinctive voice to the Gateway Men’s Chorus. Schneider is performing as a special guest with the award-winning St. Louis male choral arts organization. Performances will include songs from Broadway musicals, presentations of original comedic pieces and energetic renditions of songs that Schneider made famous with the B-52s, including hits like “Love Shack,” “Monster” and “Hot Pants Explosion.”
