‘’If Cab Calloway, Outkast, and Lauryn Hill would have a love-child, it would sound like PARLOR SOCIAL.’’
Voted one of ‘Hot 100 Unsigned Live Artists and Bands in the USA’ by the national trade Magazine, Music Connection, PARLOR SOCIAL—Dessy Di Lauro (vocals), Ric’key Pageot (keyboards)—brings a fresh approach to the music scene. ''Not so much ragtime revivalists as post-hip-hop ragtime re-definers, this duo takes the old-school showmanship of Cab Calloway and beefs up the catchy speakeasy jive with throbbing electronics, all the while adopting a heavy dose of neo-soul. The buzz also tells us that this is a must-see live act.'' remarks The Montreal Gazette.
PARLOR SOCIAL is fronted by Montreal-bred husband and wife writing team Dessy Di Lauro and Ric’key Pageot. Dessy provides sultry vocals that flawlessly encapsulate the spirit of Uptown’s early 20th Century cultural boom through the prohibition era, but she offers a timeless approach that’s all her own. Serving as musical director and pianist/ accordionist, Ric’key is either playing the squeezebox or tickling the ivories with an affable buoyant stride that promotes the infectiously festive atmosphere of their concerts.
