Stix Bones & Friends Live at the Paradise Theater
(Published: January 03, 2011)
New York, NY January 3rd, 2011-Stix Bones & Friends will be performing live on Saturday, January 29th, 2011, from 8:00 to 11:00 PM at the legendary Paradise Theater's Jazz Night on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx.
Built in 1929, The Paradise Theater is the 23d largest movie theater ever to be built in the US and was one of the last entertainment ‘palaces' built by the Hollywood movie moguls of the 20s. Recently renovated, this historical landmark is under new management who are dedicated to the preservation of its grand style of Greco/Roman statuary, marble columns, gilded walls crowded with winged cherubs and cloud-bound figures. The grand winding marble staircase in the lobby is reminiscent of the finest European hotels of the past with enormous radiant crystal chandeliers suspended overhead which complete this truly breathtaking setting. Most recently the Paradise has hosted a number of first rate entertainment events including The O'Jays, Cedric the Entertainer, Frankie Beverly & Maze, Chaka Kahn and others.
Jazz Night at the Paradise will be hosted and headlined by Stix Bones and co-hosted by DJ Rafe Gomez, formerly of CD 101.9. Stix will be performing with Capitol Jazz Fest Challenge winner Marcus Anderson, a soulful multi-talented saxophonist, flautist and vocalist who has recently released his second solo CD, From the Heart; plus CD 101.9 and Jazz Times Magazine favorite Matt Marshak, providing his intense and eclectic brand of guitar, as he does on his recent third solo CD, The Family Funktion. And what can one say of Stix Bones' While words are inadequate to describe this precise, high-powered yet subtle master of the skins, "Mr. Pocket," as he is sometimes referred to by fellow musicians because of his impeccable timing, is an apt moniker. As headliner Stix will be performing tunes from his debut CD, Groove Like This, and watch out for those drum solos! Stix is not only a great musician, but a consummate showman and entertainer as well. In addition to Stix Bones & Friends, Stix is currently the primary drummer for Soulfege, the internationally acclaimed group led by Oprah Winfrey XM Sirius host Derrick N. Ashong, who fuses a unique blend of Hip Hop, Reggae, Funk and West African Highlife; and last year Stix partnered with song writer/producer/guitarist John Turco to form the Back Alley Players and release their hit Blues album Beyond the Blues (2010), which features the chart topping hit "Nuttin' But the Blues."
Don't miss this opportunity to catch a live performance by Stix Bones & Friends which is sure to be an evening of soulful and heartfelt sounds rendered by this dynamic group of sophisticated and talented musicians.
