We know a bit about Aloe Blaccs live show, having seen him perform at more than one of our NYC events. He has lit up all kinds of stages around here, from small venues to Central Park’s Summerstage. Now he’s embarking on a 2011 North American tour, supporting his recent Good Things album, featuring the worldwide hit song “I Need a Dollar.” The popularity of Good Things has spread to all parts of the globe – come see what the rest of the world is raving about!

Aloe Blacc (Alternate) Video – “I Need A Dollar”

Aloe Blacc‘s “I Need A Dollar” was the theme song to last seasons’ big-deal TV show, How To Make It In America. It’s been fantastic exposure for the soul singer and his latest video with dancing genius Baby Boogaloo, “Loving You Is Killing Me” is a big hit. Now the hit from last year, “I Need A Dollar,” has a more appropriate video, more of a storytelling adventure than a commercial.

AOL Review: Aloe Blacc in Miami for Art Basel 2010

Check out AOL’s review of our Art Basel event this weekend: Aloe Blacc & The Grand Scheme closed 2010′s Miami Art Week with a powerful finale, performing the hit “I Need A Dollar” and stylized “partial covers” of all kinds of classics ranging from Al Green to Green Day.

“Since Blacc’s album Good Things released in September, he’s been compared over and over again to the likes of Marvin Gaye. Yet he remains humble and genuine in both his lyrics and his character. … His ability to mix honest social and political observations with feel good music is gaining him both respect and popularity as nostalgia from the early ’70s sets in.”
