Our signature monthly event of Eclectic Soul Fusion “love soul sessionon Thursday May 28th, 2009 at the parker mcmillan lounge.

Love soul session is an intimate and blissful Live showcase, allowing music lovers to witness the convergence of soul,rnb and electronica through our carefully selected monthly showcase of cutting edge artists and DJs.

Featuring LIVE Performances from:

Erik Rico + Uk Guests(Aaron j washington & Brooke Bailey)
and the MAC Band
Read Eric interview on

Erik began his professional career 10 years ago as a self contained artist/producer on Sony’s Columbia Records after being discovered by American Idol’s Randy Jackson, then V.P. of Columbia Records. Prior to Jackson’s introduction to Erik, he had only briefly been producing, writing and arranging for independent hip hop and soul acts on the east coast.

“Rico is being billed as “the future of soul music” — and judging from the tracks on his CD, he may just live up to that description. His musical style blends classic soul vocal techniques (of guys like Stevie Wonder) with high-tech musical accompaniment (think Omar); the result is a ultra-unique sound.”

An evening hosted by :

Terry Bello”The voice of soul”

Terry is hosting a US nationally syndicated show called Soul Lounge and being the creator/executive producer of the international soul music summit.

Lose Your Mind with MoBetta, Barsh and Blaxx!

These world-class, globe-trotting stars are rarely in the same place at the same time, but on May 21st, they’ll come together to put on an exciting live show for you!

Lose Your Mind! is a collaboration between two good friends – MoBetta and Barsh. Ever since their days back in Chicago playing in jazz clubs, these two love to make beautiful music together. For this performance, they’ve invited killin’ drummer Joe Blaxx, of the Laura Izibor band and Maurice Brown Effect, to join them. Don’t miss this opportunity to lose your mind — let it all go — and just be in the moment with great live music!

Rustik Tavern is near Pratt Institute in historic Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Their menu and bar options are top-notch and reasonable and the vibe is cool, loungy and, well, rustik! Take the A to Hoyt, then the G to Classon Ave.
