In Loving Memory of Mia Landon

Mia Landon was the illusion of Clayton Hamilton who was an entertainer in Atlanta, Georgia and around the southeast for approximately 12 years.

After retiring from performing, Clayton still assisted other entertainers in their quest at achieving their dreams and judged the occasional pageant.  Clayton sadly passed away on August 10th, 2012 and will be missed by many friends and family.  Our heart goes out to all who called Mia/Clayton a friend.

In Loving Memory of Lady Chablis

Lady Chablis

Lady Chablis

The Lady Chablis, also known as “The Doll”, was an entertainer from Savannah, Georgia.   She got her big break in the early 1990s when she was featured as one of Savannah’s colorful characters in John Berendt’s book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, based on a true crime story. In the book, Chablis and her larger-than-life adventures provided a counterbalance to the darker narrative of murder that was central to the book.

Chablis played herself in the 1997 movie of the same title, directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Kevin Spacey and John Cusack. Chablis made several appearances on talk shows when the book and the movie were released.  Chablis frequently performs at her “home” nightclub of Club One in Savannah. Chablis traveled the US performing at various venues and special events, such as gay pride gatherings. She has also appeared on many television and radio shows.

In her early career as an entertainer, under the names Brenda Dale Knox and The Lady Jonel, she won multiple titles in drag pageantry.

Lady Chablis passed away on Thursday, September 8th, 2016 in Savannah surrounded by family and close friends.  She was 59.  She will forever be remembered by the many who knew and had the pleasure of meeting her.
