Parlor Social

‘’If Cab Calloway, Outkast, and Lauryn Hill would have a love-child, it would sound
like PARLOR SOCIAL.’’
At the heels of his return from New Orleans, LA from working with music legend, Dr.
John in helping to create his new show introduced at the recent New Orleans
Heritage and Jazz festival, musical director Ric’key Pageot is ready to hit the stage
with his band Parlor Social at The Mint, alongside the Nola funk master, Big Sam’s
Funky Nation
Voted 2014’s ‘Hot 100 Unsigned Live Artists and Bands in the USA’ by the national
trade Magazine, Music Connection, PARLOR SOCIAL—Dessy Di Lauro (vocals),
Ric’key Pageot (piano/keyboards)—brings a fresh approach to the music scene.
Their electrifying live shows are more than just a performance, they are an
unrivaled jubilated experience. Backline’d with a band equipped with old style
instruments (a saloon piano sound, full brass horns, accordion and banjo), tappers,
PARLOR SOCIAL pays detailed homage to the Harlem Renaissance. But the
undercurrent of their urban & hip-hop beats reveals their sound is a uniquely new
creation they’ve dubbed “speakeasy-soul.”
PARLOR SOCIAL is fronted by Montreal-bred husband and wife writing team Dessy
Di Lauro and Ric’key Pageot. Dessy provides sultry vocals that flawlessly
encapsulate the spirit of Uptown’s early 20 th Century cultural boom through the
prohibition era, but she offers a timeless approach that’s all her own. Serving as
musical director and pianist/ accordionist, Ric’key is either playing the squeezebox
or tickling the ivories with an affable buoyant stride that promotes the infectiously
festive atmosphere of their concerts.
In 2010, produced and backed by her husband Ric’key, Dessy released her first solo
music video “Why U Raggin’, which won two Hollywood Music in Media Awards,
including Best R&B/Soul Song of the Year. Her sophomore effort, 2013’s This is Neo-
Ragtime, set them on an even bigger path of stardom when the album’s first single
“Jump n’ Jivin’” was featured on ESPN throughout the 2013 NCAA basketball Final
Four Championship. 2015 brought us her latest EP Say Hep Hep, nominated for a
2016 Independent Music Award (IAM) for ‘Best Urban EP’, which boasts the aptly
titled single and music video “Let Me Hear You Say Hep Hep.” Their single, “It’s
Complicated (Let Go)’’ was also nominated for an IAM for Best R&B/Soul song of the
year.
Recently, PARLOR SOCIAL have performed their show at the Blue Note Jazz festival,
CMJ Festival in NYC; London; Atlanta; Vancouver; Whistler Summer Concert Series;
Montreal International Jazz festival; London; and The BRIC JazzFest in Brooklyn,
opening for ‘West Coast Get Down’ saxophonist Kamasi Washington. In 2016, they
have also opened for Grammy award-winning band Snarky Puppy member, Maz, at
the legendary Roxy Theater in Hollywood, CA and New Orleans frontman/
trombonist, Funky Big Sam.
