Olivia K. Presents Planet Joy featuring The Parkers & Special Guests at The Loft (Seated Ticket) - 2/22
at The Loft at City Winery
A native New Yorker, vocalist, composer, and bandleader, Olivia K is an unstoppable force in the city that never sleeps. At a time when soul music took a backseat to popular R&B and Hip-Hop, Olivia boldly went retro to meld together 70's funk ALA Chaka Khan, “Truth-to-Power” gospel, and her Caribbean dance roots into one powerful, electrifying fusion.
Planet Joy is Olivia’s concept for a multimedia arts experience intertwining music, dance, and visual media, inviting the audience into a new world of listening. Proposed as an alternative from the world of ordinary problems, cynicism, and apathy, Planet Joy invites the audience to an utopian world of free expression and human spirit that can and should live on after the show ends. As an audience member, you are more than welcome to sing along when inspired, dance when your body says move, and let yourself be transported to a sphere of elation!
Olivia K and The Parkers play to jam-packed crowds at their monthly residence at The Groove, and have twice rocked the house at SoFar Sounds NYC. In early 2018, the band gave a showstopping performance with accompanying dancers at Brooklyn's The Knitting Factory for Olivia's 4th Annual Birthday Show. “Planet Joy,” her 5th Annual Birthday Show, promises to deliver all the magic from last year’s celebration, and much more.
