Voted one of ‘Hot 100 Unsigned Live Artists and Bands in the USA’ by Music Connection, PARLOR SOCIAL is fronted by Montreal-bred husband and wife team Dessy Di Lauro (vocals) and Ric’key Pageot (piano). With their library of original songs, Dessy provides sultry vocals that flawlessly encapsulate the spirit of Uptown’s early 20th Century cultural boom through the prohibition era yet offers a timeless approach that’s all her own. Serving as musical director and pianist/ accordionist (for both Parlor Social and iconic star Madonna), 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. Their music pays tribute to the Harlem Renaissance classics, combined with a present-day sound. In addition, Parlor Social is well versed in their languages, covering classics in Portugues (Corcovado, Desafinado, Ipanema), Spanish (La Vida Es Un Carnaval by Celia Cruz, Despacito, etc), Italian (Caruso, E poi, etc....) and French (L'Amour Existe Encore, Djadja)
