We had the good fortune of connecting with Rocco’s Roccettes and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Rocco’s Roccettes, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Inspired by iconic girl groups, Beau Byron (Producer) wanted to put together a super group of performers to create a high energy, high production, weekly Sunday Funday drag show that feels like a party. Beau was inspired by the drag shows at the Palace Bar in South Beach, Miami. Rocco’s WeHo huge patio, open space and beautiful view of the boulevard is the perfect venue to create that vibe for what is now, the “World Famous Rocco’s Roccettes!”

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
We are the “World Famous Rocco’s Roccettes” 7 diverse and talented Drag Queens of Rocco’s WeHo, and each of us individually bring forth different aesthetics to the group. We debuted our first show on Feb 9, 2020.

A challenge? Coming together as a girl group we have to work together as a team while showcasing our differences as individuals. Also, dealing with seven personalities in one room can be quite chaotic! Some of us like to play pranks on one another so backstage is an experience in itself!

We would love to be known as a tourist attraction, and a welcoming show for all ages when visiting West Hollywood. According to TMZ Tours, they stated in their video that Rocco’s drag shows are fun; we tend to wave hello and perform for the tour vans when they drive by.

Coming to our show, our guests will have a great time! Those who are celebrating birthdays, engagement, marriages, divorces, etc. we have a special moment for celebrants during our halfway mark where they get to show their moves on our stage! It is our favorite moment of the show because we get to interact with the guests.


Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Hmm, we would take them to our show of course! Jokes aside.

We would show our friend to the hottest spots in WeHo, the bars, the restaurants. WeHo has so much to offer!

Must bring them to:
Dragged Out on Wednesday night at Rocco’s
Lolita Colby’s Headliner Show on Saturdays
Heart Weho
Heavenly Bodies at The Chapel hosted by Sasha Colby every 2nd Sunday of the month

Fashion District – Santee Alley for Drag/Fashion Goodies

The Grove, Catch LA, Tu Madre, Pendry West Hollywood’s Restaurants, MeatLove Korean BBQ, Bottega Louie (delicious pastries & cakes)

Beaches- Santa Monica , Malibu
Hiking- Runyon Canyon, and to the Hollywood Sign

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
We would like to give a huge shout out and thanks to the iconic Billy Francesca , the founder of “Dragged Out”. Majority of the Roccettes started on the Dragged Out stage; where everyone got acquainted with Beau Byron. Without the Dragged Out platform opening opportunities to aspiring and up and coming local Drag Queens, the Roccettes wouldn’t have been formed.

Adolfo Espinoza- the amazing manager of Rocco’s WeHo & Heart WeHo. For putting up with us every Sunday and allowing us to have a space to entertain the patrons.
