Call in to ask questions to Parlor Social... PARLOR SOCIAL is back in studio working on their upcoming album set for a release in early 2018. Their first single is a breathtaking cover of the Screaming Jay Hawkins classic, ‘I Put A Spell On You’
Jazz/Soul duo PARLOR SOCIAL cover Screamin' Jay Hawkins with their own special twist fusing elements of RnB, Blues, Pop, Jazz, and Hip Hop while still maintaining the hauntingly beautiful musicality of the original score.
When Dessy Di Lauro and Ric’key Pageot headlined at Montreal’s Diese Onze in February, they packed the intimate jazz club for their first homecoming show in four years.
The musical Pageot family was out in full force, sharing the stage with Dessy and Ric’key — renowned Montreal drummer Anthony, flutist Steve and their father, Fritz, on bass. “Before that night, I had played music with all of my brothers, but Diese Onze was the first time we played together in public,” Ric’key Pageot said.

Co-produced by the legendary Teddy Riley, “No Diggity” was a massive hit for Blackstreet in the 90s. More recently, neo-ragtime duo Parlor Social teamed up with Riley to perform a version of the song live in Los Angeles, and, subsequently, the pair have been introduced to a whole new and global fan-base.
This is why the real music fan loves to see live shows. Yeah, you can go and listen to all that New Jack Swing created by the impresario of that sound, Teddy Riley for groups such as Guy, Wrecks ‘N Effect and Blackstreet. And sure, you can hear Dessy DiLauro bring back fond memories of Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savanah Band by recrafting that sound in her own image for the 21st Century.
