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.”
