Parlor Social Part of the Jazz at The Cabaret Series
February 10 @ 8:00 pm - February 11 @ 10:00 pm$35
“Not so much ragtime revivalists as post-hip-hop ragtime redefined, this duo takes the old-school showmanship of Cab Calloway and beefs up the catchy speakeasy jive with throbbing electronics and a heavy dose of neo-soul. This is a must-see.” – The Montreal Gazette
If Cab Calloway, Outkast, and Lauryn Hill had a love child, it would sound like Parlor Social. Together as Parlor Social, the Los Angeles–based husband and wife duo of singer/songwriter Dessy Di Lauro and producer/composer/multi-instrumentalist Ric’key Pageot update music of the Harlem Renaissance for a modern audience. The duo’s retro-futurism sound incorporates elements of electro, hip-hop, and soul with neo-ragtime, sonically connecting Duke Ellington to Janelle Monáe and revealing a uniquely new creation dubbed speakeasy soul and prohibition funk. They also boast sterling credentials – Ric’key has accompanied Madonna on four world tours (keyboards, piano, and accordion), and has toured with major music icons such as Motown legend Diana Ross, Cher, and the late Dr. John. Dessy has toured with Cirque du Soleil and as a backing vocalist for Dreamcar, featuring members of No Doubt and AFI.
