2 NIGHTS! December 10 and Dec. 11
Part dance party, part funk concert, part comedy show, the Yuletide-themed event features original holiday songs as well as loose, funk-infused adaptations of Tchaikovsky, “Frosty the Snowman,” “Little Drummer Boy” and the like. This year’s theme is appropriately “DysFUNKtion.”
With Holidelic, Everett Bradley puts a fresh spin on holiday cheer, through lively holiday party tunes, outrageous costumes, and a theatrical stage show worthy of George Clinton’s Parliament-Funkadelic. There’ll be no “Silent Night” when Holidelic reinvigorates the season, prompting concertgoers to shake their holiday booties to Sly Stone-style funk ‘n’ roll. Ho-ho-ho.
Everett Bradley – aka Papadelic — was the first American to perform with and direct the British percussion sensation “STOMP.” He was also the co-writer, co-arranger, Theatre World Award winner and star of the hit musical, “SWING,” which won a Tony Award and was nominated for a Grammy for Best Broadway Cast Recording. Bradley has toured and recorded with giants like Bobby McFerrin, Jon Bon Jovi, David Bowie, and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. He is currently a member of the cast of the Broadway musical, “After Midnight,” which celebrates the glamor and exuberance of Harlem’s Golden Age.
