KING will play their much anticipated New York City debut at our SummerStage party this Saturday, June 25th, joining the line up to replace previously announced Andreya Triana. In case you haven't heard of this group yet, get ready to be excited. A sublime blend of 3 female voices delivering original soul material that will take you out of the ordinary. With only one release under their belt, The Story EP, these ladies are making what they do seem easy and garnering fans like Prince and Erykah Badu for whom they already have opened. Make sure you stop by the park on Saturday and bring some friends with you because Giant Step is taking over the city this weekend.
As if the prospect of the upcoming Thievery Corporation show on June 24th at the Williamsburg Waterfront wasn't exciting enough, word has reached us that Raphael Saadiq will be joining the bill. More special guests are expected to be announced closer to the show. It would seem the perfect summer show just got more perfect.
We are delighted to announce our 2009 SummerStage event on Saturday, July 18th. Giant Step's annual concert is a highlight in our calendar, where previously we have been honored to present the likes of Femi Kuti, Seu Jorge, Jamie Lidell, Janelle Monáe and Gilles Peterson.
This year promises to be really special. We have the legendary Q-Tip headlining with his full live band, new boys Chester French, Sweden's Little Dragon and from London, holding it down on the decks, Benji B.
Expect, as always, a great day of eclectic music, Giant Step's vibes and the beautiful people that you can only find in a city as diverse as New York.
