STIX BONES & THE BONE SQUAD LIVE AT
THE PARADISE THEATER
(Published: June 07, 2011)
New York, NY, June 7, 2011-Stix Bones and the Bone Squad will be performing live on Saturday, June 18, 2011, from 7:30 to 10:00 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.
On the heels of their recent successful ‘Jazz Night at the Paradise' performance in March, Stix Bones will again be hosting and headlining this June event at the Paradise Theater. Stix will be performing with his band The Bone Squad, plus ‘special guest' veteran Jazz pianist Bob Baldwin whose latest CD release, Never Can Say Goodbye (his 14th), debuted in the top 20 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart. Also, Universal Records will present the new release of soul singer Ledisi's album Pieces of Me. And what can one say of Stix Bones? He is not only a great musician, but a consummate showman and entertainer as well. Yet "Mr. Pocket," as he is sometimes referred to by fellow musicians because of his impeccable timing, is an apt moniker. Stix will be performing tunes from his debut CD, Groove Like This, (and watch out for those drum solos!) along with his own interpretation of some known favorites. In addition to Stix Bones & The Bone Squad, Stix is currently the primary drummer for Soulfège, 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 songwriter/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." In addition, Stix co-wrote the recent hit single "Harlem River Drive" with songwriter/producer/guitarist Matt Marshak for Matt's album Urban Folktales.
Don't miss this opportunity to catch a live performance by Stix Bones and the Bone Squad which is sure to be an evening of soulful and heartfelt sounds rendered by this dynamic group of sophisticated and talented musicians.
