LIVE AT THE LOFT: Chico Mann & Cubic Zirconia

I recently got invited to check out the live gigs of NY homies Chico Mann & Cubic Zirconia at TONE's Live At The Loft show series, which is without doubt the hottest live show/loft parties Hoboken, NJ (so far has been invite only though) has to offer.

In my good friend  who is also involved in running the series, Pan's word: Episode 03 sees our largest turnout so far, and we’re playing with new set dynamics to accommodate the crowd. We have floor seating (literally) in the front, the sofas are now lining the walls, and the spiral staircase leading to the 2nd floor is being used for additional seating.Cubic Zirconia front-woman, Tiombe Lockhart is the lady of the night, and with the shaking of her tambourine the band launches into full attack mode. Tiombe has been said to channel Josephine Baker with her live performance, which is appropriate, as “Josephine” happens to be a character in some of their songs. The sound that has grown from their early ethnic disco now has colors of deep house, electro, and even some Afro-Caribbean patterns. To put it into more sensory terms, just think of the sweatiest bedroom romp you can imagine…multiply that by infinity, and you’ve got Cubic Zirconia. It’s great sex, in the form of music.
