Seth Sikes welcomes LGBTQ+ tourists back to Provincetown, with his latest music video, The Trolley Song. The singer performs the signature Garland song from her classic film Meet Me in St Louis, backed by a full cast (including a cameo by Mama Tits as the conductor). Sikes performs the much-loved song on location on the P-town trolley car as it rolls past queer landmarks and local celebs.
“When I first saw Provincetown’s Mayfair Trolley, I pictured myself as Judy Garland riding it down Commercial Street and falling for a fellow passenger.” Sikes recalls. “My video is a love letter to both Judy and P-town, because the town itself feels like a movie set.”
"The Trolley Song" was written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane. The video was directed by Jason Dottley and features cameos by many P-Town vacationers and residents. Playing The Boy Next Door is Alex Morse, Provincetown’s new town manager, who previously served as the Mayor of Holyoke, Massachusetts for 10 years and was that city's youngest and first openly gay mayor.
The Trolley Song is the latest video from Sikes who, throughout 2020, created a series of colorful, upbeat videos which spoofed pandemic life and promoted mask safety in Manhattan and on Fire Island. All of his videos went viral. (Here he sings goodbye to Fire Island as the season closed).
One of New York City’s most popular nightclub singers, Sikes has performed his critically-acclaimed tributes to Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli, and Bernadette Peters to consistently sold-out clubs in Manhattan and elsewhere.
He recently returned to live performances in New York with a sold-out show at The Green Room 42 which won rave reviews. BroadwayWorld said, “Seth Sikes rocked its intimate space with a tenor voice of skilled intonation, articulation and pitch. He belts with the best of them and even with much of his material recognized as women’s songs, he is able to tread a fine line in keeping things from distorting into caricature (not easy when you’re channeling a bit of Barbra and Judy).”
Sikes returns to Provincetown later this summer to headline at the newly refurbished Post Office Café and Cabaret with his new show Seth Sikes Sings Judy and Liza and Barbra, etc.
