Friday Night

Olive Tiger

  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.

Saturday Night

TH↓S

Fusion Dance NYC has been wanting to bring Josh Gronner, mastermind of  TH↓S, to New York for ages, and the stars have finally aligned! 

You will love his feel-good electronic music, geeky covers of theme songs, and bright personality gracing the dance floor.  

“TH↓S” is the moniker & ever-evolving dream come true for California-native music producer & multi-instrumentalist, Josh Gronner.
Inspired by countless musical influences ranging from blues to tango to electronica and more, TH↓S fuses live piano and acoustic instrumentation with cinematic gooey molecular-phonic McBass sauce originally composed and improvised by Josh and his growing family of collaborates.
Five years ago, Josh’s life forever changed when he discovered the world of Fusion dancing. You and this incredibly supportive community of social dancers have been a pivotal inspiration for TH↓S music ever since!

Sunday Night

Alan Markley
(Plastic Cannons) 

 

Alan Markley, of Plastic Cannons, has toured throughout the world with well known bands such as Maggie Rogers, but he resides right here in Brooklyn, making music and playing chess.

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.

We have finally secured him to play for you LIVE at Motley Hue on Sunday night.  You won’t want to miss this.  We promise.
