Black Girls Rock!

Posted in Live Show, Photos, Show Recap, SOBs Event on November 10, 2011 by SOBs

It was definitely a phenomenal event held at SOBs on October 13th which celebrated women of color in a showcase with several acts from various genres of music. The first act of the night was Be’la Dona, an all female band that brought the house down with their rendition of songs by popular artists. If you were in the building that night, you would have enjoyed performances by Lil’ Mama, Rah Digga, Melanie Fiona and Estelle, all of whom showed why they rock with their amazing stage presence and vocals.

If you weren’t at SOBs last night you missed out!

If you weren’t at SOBs last night you missed an amazing show! Our acts included Leila, Dallas Lewis, Kwamie Liv and our headliner, Allen Stone. Words cannot express the intensity and emotion I felt during Allen Stone’s set but simply enough, this guy gave me chills. One of my favorite songs he performed was his Bob Marley cover of “Is This Love,” I have to say this song is what captured the crowd. If you’re not familiar with him or any of the artist mentioned above, please look them up, you won’t be disappointed!

DIRECT FROM CUBA: Back By Popular Demand

Posted in Live Show on May 26, 2011 by SOBs

DAVID CALZADO W/CHARANGA HABANERA
(New York, NY)- Cuban powerhouse, supergroup Charanga Habanera are coming back to SOBs for another show.

The last time the legendary band was here in New York City was over a year ago and the show was talked about for months after. Lead by the charismatic David Calzado, the band plays Timba, a distinctly Cuban form of Salsa. Every show is full of high energy and they often go into the early hours of the morning. Without a doubt the group is one of the liveliest and most entertaining salsa bands coming out of anywhere. The music is nothing short of phenomenal and needs to be experienced live.

When: Thursday May 26th @ 9pm & Friday May 27th @ 11pm

Ticket info: $35 Advance, Available on Ticketweb

Who Is Savant?

Savant (Crash Course Leaked Series)

    

By:Suzanne Biello

  With everybody under the sun these days claiming to be a rapper/emcee, few actually live up to the expectation. One individual who does however, is Savant aka Stanstro. This Chicago native, who now resides in Tucson, Arizona is nothing less than breathtaking when he blesses mic.  Gregory “Savant” Daggett has always possessed a passion for music and literary arts. Involved in general music since age 7, and a trumpet player since age 10, he wasn’t officially exposed to hip hop until age 12. Although no particular emcee caught his ear right away, he was intrigued with the entire concept of an individual or a group of people speaking over instrumentation in an intensely rhythmic lyrical form, oftentimes telling semi-autobiographic tales relating to a fictionalized counterpart. He became inspired to write and partake of the art of emceeing after hearing the 1999 classic “Black on Both Sides” by Dante Smith (Mos Def) and honed his emceeing chops at the lunch room ciphers of Chicago high schools Whitney M. Young Magnet and George Washington Carver. He has since dedicated every verse, every bar and every word to achieving the ever elusive sense of balance in this hallowed art form. Follow the flow…

Savant has 2 shows coming up in the Tri-State area in March: 3/13/11 at The Trash Bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Showtime is 9pm, admission $10. 3/15/11 at The Spot Lounge in Newark, NJ. Showtime is 9pm and admission is $10.
