Ben Watt returns to spin at Cielo tonight, for the first time in over a year. The other half of Everything But the Girl will be joined by Sleepy & Boo, the New York DJ team behind Basic NYC parties. Advanced ticket sales are closed, but tickets will be available at the door starting at 10pm.
SonnyBoy combines the key elements of black music over the last 50 years: from bebop to hip-hop, jazz to pop, mixed with a heavy dose of pure soul and layered with some very funk-driven rock’n'roll. The Barfly Theory has a more contemporary twist on the soulful sounds of previous SonnyBoy efforts and expresses messages of love, hate and empowerment, coupled with that ever prevalent Sonnyboy sense of humor!
Preview this track from the album: a little “Hey Ya” energy and some Cee-Lo vocal stylings make “Shake That Thing” one of those rare songs that crosses over from rock to hip-hop and back.
