Everett Bradley Brings HOLIDELIC To Joe's Pub 12/17-20
Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, producer, actor, dancer Everett Bradley brings his Funk extravaganza HOLIDELIC to Joe's Pub for five big shows December 17-20. The pre-Christmas concerts will double as the CD-release party for the new 'Holidelic' album, a fan-financed 14-song seasonal collection that brings to mind Sly Stone, Prince, P-Funk and other seminal artists. Imagine if George Clinton and The Rockettes had a baby - the result might be 'Papadelic', Bradley's Holidelic persona
Bradley promises a "Holiday Funkstravaganza" for the Christmas season - new songs, new costumes, new swag and a hip-shakin' new show for the fans that have supported his joyful, annual celebration since 2002.

More about 'Holidelic':
Holidelic blends the musical influences of 1970's and '80's funk and soul bands in original songs that celebrate diversity, mild familial seasonal dysfunction, individuality and holiday booty shaking. Since its inception in 2002, Everett Bradley's sold-out performances have featured a range of artists from Living Colour's Vernon Reid, hip hop's John Forte to pop chanteuse Lucy Woodward, dancing trombonist Jonathan Arons, and the legendary Celeste Holm; celebrating uniqueness and diversity with the power of the groove as his common denominator. As the songs and audiences grew, so did Everett's contemporary wide-eyed look at the Holiday season, and Holidelic was born. A Special Message From Papadelic: "Prepare yourself for the most exclusive all inclusive holiday party in the universe. Now when I say inclusive, I do mean we do not discriminate, we celebrate all shapes, sizes, colors, and beliefs. Your only requirement is to bring an open mind, an open heart, and a promise to shake yo rump!" Visit www.holidelic.com <http://www.holidelic.com> for more information, or to order the CD.
About the New Album:
The fantastic new 'Holidelic' CD was fan-financed via Kickstarter, as Bradley's supporters demanded a recorded version of some of his infectious original grooves. The album will be released on 'Black Friday,' November 26th, and will be celebrated throughout the 12/17-20 weekend at Joe's Pub (including a special kids matinee show on Sunday Dec 19th).

Abroad, he has topped the charts in Europe with his dance classic, "I Luv U Baby", and was the first American to perform and direct the British percussive sensation "STOMP." He was co-writer, co-arranger, Theatre World Award winner, and star of the hit musical, "SWING," which won a Tony and Grammy-nomination for best Broadway Cast recording! Everett's first full length CD, AS EVER IT IS, received rave reviews from both Billboard and People magazine and the haunting ballad "Whadify" was featured in the closing 2001 episode of Dawson's Creek. His 2002 all original Holiday CD entitled, "TOY," is a joyous, funky, collection of new Christmas tunes. This self produced album features duets with Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora, siren Ann Hampton Callaway, and trumpet great Chris Botti.
