Review/Preview: Everett Bradley's Holidelic CD and Upcoming Joe's Pub Concert

Not since James Brown’s Christmas Album has there been a Yuletide-themed collection as funky as this latest release from Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter/actor Everett Bradley (Broadway’s Swing). Featuring mostly original songs as well as very loose adaptations of Tchaikovsky, “Frosty the Snowman,” “Little Drummer Boy” and the like, Holidelic is a relentlessly fun and joyful disc that recalls the glory days of George Clinton’s Parliament/Funkadelic.

Bradley and his cohorts will be performing music from the CD at a series of five shows at Joe’s Pub on Dec. 17-20, including a family matinee on Dec. 19 at 2:00 pm that will surely have the kids dancing in the narrow aisles.
