Chilly Gonzales in Piano Talk Shows
Featuring Special Guests Sia, Andrew WK, DJ A-Trak and Princess Superstar
Every Thursday in February at Joe’s Pub in NYC
Fresh from his Guinness World Record for longest live piano performance by any individual (27 hours, 3 minutes and 44 seconds), his piano battle with Andrew WK in New York, and a sold-our run at London’s La Pigalle Club, Paris-based pianist and showman Chilly Gonzales crosses the Atlantic for four “Piano Talk Shows” in New York City in February.
The self-proclaimed "Entertainist" will play every Thursday at Joe’s Pub, finally giving NYC a full-on taste of his futuristic cabaret performance. Each show will feature a guest from Gonzo's extended musical family, each promising to bring fresh surprises of their own!
Feb 4 w/ guest SIA
Feb 11 w/ guest Andrew WK
Feb 18 w/ guest DJ A-Trak plus surprise guest
Feb 25 w/ guest Princess Superstar
Chilly is currently celebrating two new releases: a spellbinding 7” piano remake of Erol Alkan and Boys Noize's club banger “Waves” (coupled with a spoken music lesson on the B-side) and his 4-album live Guinness World Record set "The Works" (released through Believe digital). Listen to the “Waves” remake here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uetgOn_tUI .
Meanwhile, the Grammy-nominated arranger/producer’s collaborations continue to multiply: he's co-writing and producing the major-label debut of Thecocknbullkid, co-writing songs with Jarvis Cocker for "Get Him to the Greek" (a Russell Brand rock-movie spoof) and shooting new episodes of his cult web-TV show "SUPERPRODUCER" (presented exclusively with DailyMotion). Watch the hilarious sketch with gay British rapper Dorian (ahem) Gay here - http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x9y2sp_superproducer-e05-dorian-gay_fun .
Best of all, Chilly is currently putting the finishing touches on his new full-length, Ivory Tower, will is expected to be released in the US later this year.
Having already bagged the (also self-proclaimed) title of President of the Berlin Underground, Chilly Gonzales can now add another notch on his belt after successfully challenging Andrew WK to a piano-off at Joe’s Pub in New York last September and premiering his Jarvis Cocker collaboration “Francophobia” at London’s La Pigalle Club in November.
For a taste of the musical mayhem and unique extreme entertainment in store for Chilly’s upcoming New York City shows, check out his piano dual with Andrew WK here - http://thequietus.com/articles/02899-andrew-wk-vs-chilly-gonzales-piano-battle-the-quietus-movie .
All Piano Talk Shows will feature PianoVision, a video installation created by Nina Rhode, aka Ninja Pleasure. Reminiscent of a silent movie, PianoVision allows the audience to see a video projection of the piano’s 88 keys, along with the master’s finger work.
