Adira Amram and The Experience
ECNY Award-winning performer Adira Amram brings her 'Dance Party Fantasy' to Brooklyn for one night only, along with her backup band and spandex-clad dancers. The majestic Heloise will kick off the night, followed by a full-length set of hot beats and even hotter dance moves from Adira Amram and The Experience. So bring your dancing shoes, and leave your inhibitions at the door--it's time to party!

Adira Amram has been performing her sly, sexy and subversive musical comedy all over NYC and beyond. In 2008 she realized that what she really needed was a backing band and dancers. Thus The Experience was born! Since then they have had the opportunity to perform with some of the greatest performers of all time! In 2009 they toured North America with Kid Koala's The Slew and in 2011 made their UK debut at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival as the house band for Kristen Schaal and Kurt Braunohler'sHot Tub. While in Edinburgh they were invited to perform at the BBC Comedy Presents: Best of Festival Live Show Finale. In NYC they are the house band for Arden Myrin & Lisa Delarios' monthly comedy explosion, The Party Machine as well as the live late night talk show, Night of The Living with Kurt Braunohler. In 2011 they were named Best Musical Comedy Act at the ECNY Awards. In 2009 they released the album Hot Jams For Teens on North Street Records. Adira is currently collaborating with Seattle based DJ, Dynomite D (The Beastie Boys & Kid Koala) on her forthcoming album. Her music videos have been featured on the front page of Huffington Post Comedy, Funny or Die and ucbcomedy.com

The electro-rock Brooklyn based outfit, Heloise & the Savoir Faire has enjoyed a myriad of success in response to their full length debut Trash, Rats, and Microphones as well as their supercharged, artful live performances.

Heloise Williams began performing in 2004 with a theatrical live act featuring two dancers and a laptop as a backdrop to her soaring vocals. The group eventually recruited live musicians. With a full lineup in place, the splendor that is Heloise & the Savoir Faire began to attract serious attention from local and small record labels in and around New York City. However, wary of encountering any restrictions the band continued to go it alone, and remained unsigned. That is, of course, until they were approached by actor and the founder of Simian Records, Elijah Wood. Wood offered Heloise & the Savoir Faire unconfined creative latitude, and the partnership was officially established.

Heloise & the Savior Faire continued to broaden their fan base, and one evening, after a customary amped up performance at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, caught the eye of Blondie’s Debbie Harry, who went on to declare the band her “favorite underground New York band.”

Harry supported the sentiment and lent her vocal talents to two tracks on the full band’s debut, Trash, Rats and Microphones. And the record could not be a more fitting introduction to Heloise & the Savoir Faire; a potent cocktail of new wave, soul, disco, rock, and electronica fused together with poppy hooks and always danceable beats. Heloise Williams is the olive in the drink, soaking up all the glitz and tongue and cheek glam and presenting it to the forefront of your senses.

Following the release, Heloise & the Savoir Faire continued to build upon their reputation as a band that should be seen as well as heard, rocking notable New York venues, The Bowery Ballroom and the Mercury Lounge. The band also traveled to the UK, booking a series of festival and club dates, as well as making television appearances on “The Graham Norton Show” and “Friday Night Project.” Adding, even still, to their repertoire of notoriety, the single, “Odyle” was selected as the theme to Bravo’s “Rachel Zoe Project,” which premiered in 2008.

Presently, Heloise has been hard at work composing new material for an upcoming record tentatively entitled, “Diamond Dust.” The record is covertly ambitious in the breadth of its subject matter. Lyrically, themes such as Egyptology, immigration and reincarnation are explored. Musically, the record has overtones of medieval electronic dance music; a nod to Queen’s soundtrack to “Flash Gordon.” It’s a dance record with a soul. Four on the floor beats, arpeggiated synths and heartfelt anthemic vocals comprise Heloise & the Savoir Faire’s most exciting self-possessed effort to date.
