We have been telling you about Tunde Olaniran since we first started the website. He is one of the best looking, most original, highest energy acts that I have ever seen, local or not. The outfits, the stages, and the show are constantly changing and evolving much like the artist himself. He mixes pop, hip hop and soul in a way that I have never heard before. He can also dance really well! He always has at least two hotties up on stage with him and he sings his heart out. He killed it this year at Dally in the Alley and had the whole crowd asking “Who is this guy?”. He’s Tunde! I’ve been saying it for months and he’s the best! Check out our previous interview with him at The Lager House a few months ago:
We have also told you about Phantasmagoria, another local gem that we have had the pleasure of seeing a few times around town. This two piece also features its own unique sound and style and draws in an eclectic crowd. The vocals are amazing and haunting at the same time. Basically they have a style of their own and I am digging what they are up to.
However, we have not told you about Maria Rose and The Swiss Kicks yet, but they have had such a buzz around town that you may have already heard about them before we had the chance to tell you. They have been compared to some of the greats, including Fiona Apple and Adele. Their debut album was released in December of last year and is titled “New Direction”. We are planning to catch up with them at the show on Thursday and learn more about the people creating all this hype. I don't doubt that I will fall in love with them when I finally get to see them live.
To enter to win tickets to this great show please just e-mail your name with the subject "Tunde" to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will be drawn at the end of the day on Wednesday. The best part is that even if you don't win the tickets, this show is only $5 dollars! This is definitely one of those shows that is worth every penny. All ages are welcome and doors are at 8 p.m. I will be there watching and enjoying every minute of this! I hope that you will join me!
