Erika Moul has been impersonating Lady Gaga since 2008. With her BFA degree in Musical Theatre/Acting from Michigan State University, she became a star in Vegas as a headlining performer in 'Tribute Royalty' at Planet Hollywood.

Erika prides herself on not only giving her most intricately genuine 100% LIVE impersonation of Gaga, but focuses on spreading her Born This Way message of love, freedom, & acceptance.

Classifiably nocturnal, WILDCHILD WORLD creatures and environments go interplanetary, juxtaposing the limited fleshy body with the limitless human imagination. Their brilliantly costumed figures employ massive installations, dance, music, acrobatics and an onslaught of theatrical spectacles to deconstruct technology, sexuality, and the human form. Currently celebrating over 18 years in event design and production, our full-service, 3000 square foot facility is based in the heart of the Miami Design District. With a dynamic range of performance and production services, WILDCHILD WORLD creates an absolutely scandalous vision of delirium, hovering somewhere between the realms of sleep and wakefulness.
MISTER CHASE is an EDM, rocktronic performer based in NY. He has a pulsing party vibe, mixed with chill sugary pop tones and rock star edge.

Having toured US, UK and Canada, his show turns every audience member into a believer. MISTER CHASE is currently recording his second EP which is set to release later this year.
A former Miss America contestant with real vocal talent, Kristine W became one of the hottest dance floor properties during the mid-'90s. Born in a small town in Washington State, Kristine Weitz began singing and dancing in public from an early age, winning talent contests and beauty pageants. Crowned Miss Washington, she competed in the Miss America pageant, placing first in the talent portion of the contest. She moved to Las Vegas soon after, to go to school (and perform), gradually working her way up to be the lead performer in her own show at the Las Vegas Hilton, concurrent with a recording career which began in the early '90s.
