“XELLE wants you to know that their name is pronounced “XL,” because they love big things: big voices, big personalities and making big smash hits. As the first pop group to consist of two girls and a drag queen, they are a girl group with something extra.
Together, JC Cassis, Rony G and Mimi Imfurst are XELLE, but separately, they come from a wide variety of life experiences. They have lived in Boston, Israel, Maine, the Philippines, Holland, and New York City. They’ve written songs, both for their own projects and for other artists such as Martha Wash. They’ve voiced an animated baby penguin, a talking vending machine and numerous radio jingles. They’ve won Amateur Night at the Apollo and released music as solo artists, including a single on the 2010 FIFA World Cup album “Triumph Through Football” for Sony Music. They’ve served two years in the army and can take apart, put together, and fire an Uzi sub-machine gun, M16 and Galil rifle. They can speak French, Spanish, Portuguese, Hebrew, Tagalog and English. They can play the piano, flute, saxophone, tambourine, guitar and a fierce kazoo.
They’ve worked with Lady Gaga, Martha Wash, Kathy Griffin, Mya, Crystal Waters, Mo’nique, Salt-N-Pepa, C&C Music Factory, Lil’ Kim, Vanessa Williams, LaToya Jackson, Howard Stern, Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell, RuPaul, P!nk, and Dolly Parton. They’ve dominated the stages of New York City and performed around the world in places such as London, Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem, Thailand, Holland, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, Boston, and almost every US State. They’ve been featured in US Weekly and People Magazine. They’ve performed in night clubs, cruise ships, on Broadway, at Carnegie Hall and even 35,000 feet up in the air on a plane.”
