We will again be partnering with Friday Night Blues NYC for a great night of blues & fusion dancing.
We are so excited to have found Olive Tiger from New Haven! They will expertly ride the line between blues, jazz, and their own original folk chamber-pop sounds, giving every dancer something to play with.
We will have two rooms of contrastic music on Friday night so you can choose your own musical adventure.
Olive Tiger is an evolution of sound and texture: a nontraditional trio hailing from New England that lushly combines electronics with organic elements of chamber-pop, defying the boundaries of genre in favor of obsessive exploration. Grounded in the stunning songwriting and soaring voice of its bandleader, Olive Tiger arcs continuously toward more meticulous, more rich and more seductive arrangements.
With a Master’s Degree in music therapy, Olive founded the project as a deliberate space for growth and expression, engaging with music as an emotional transaction of energy. Listeners have responded in kind, placing Olive Tiger among Connecticut’s most notable up-and-coming musicmakers. With a shifting array of collaborators, Olive’s philosophy toward creativity quickly carried the project from its folk-jazz roots to a spacey plane of experimentation in 2013, when she began to manipulate her voice and cello with a looper pedal. The evolution is only set to continue.
Listen to their Music!
(& purchase their album!)
You will love his feel-good electronic music, geeky covers of theme songs, and bright personality gracing the dance floor.
You don’t know it yet, but Alan is Motley Hue’s secret weapon! Completely underground, unbeknownst to the dancers, he has single handedly rocked the fusion dance floor in at least 6 different countries.
