Burkharts Entertainer- REGINA RYAN
Originally from Conneticut, she grew up in North Carolina, and having lived in Atlanta for the past nine years, she now considers it home. Regina started performing fifteen years ago, when she was asked to be a part of a performance group called The China Dolls. The group took its name from their shared daytime gig: a company that specialized in china and crystal replacements.
As a performer, Regina takes her inspiration from all the "Old School" R&B divas such as Patti LaBelle, Aretha Franklin, and Chaka Khan. Regina also recognizes her peers as influential. She looks up to many entertainers in drag community, particularly those who have achieved longevity and turned their drag careers into a thriving business.
Regina delights audiences at venues throughout the Southeast, but she considers Burkhart’s her home bar. She says she loves the people who come to see the shows there, they really get into it. She recieves the most feedback when she sings live.
In her spare time she and her friends watch movies and cook! The specialty in Regina’s kitchen is soul food. She also likes being involved in anything artistic. An accomplished seamstress, she makes the majority of her own costumes.
Regina can currently be found every Friday night at Burkharts, where she is a regular cast member of the FAB FIVE.
