With over a decade of performance and appearances in her little purse, Miss Juanita MORE! remains a creation of fashion and glamour, generosity and nerve. She’s a performer, hostess, tireless fundraiser, DJ, and photographer. To date, Juanita has helped to raise over one million dollars for Bay Area non-profits. www.juanitamore.com

Shy at heart, MOREboy Jason enjoys sharing his extroverted side on stage with Miss MORE! And, he’ll do just about anything for a scoop of Juanita’s homemade strawberry ice cream. Clearly a nouveau-dandy, MOREboy Brian enjoys making his audience happy, while always changing the way he does it. He is currently part of the ensemble piece “Someday, Love” at the New Conservatory Theater Center. MOREboy Joshua J. Cook made his film debut in the Scissor Sister’s music video “Filthy/Gorgeous”. Now residing in San Francisco, he has been working creatively with Juanita MORE! for over two years, and is thrilled to lend his face and voice to her dramatic stories.
