Morningside Park (enter at Morningside Ave & 113th Street)
On 12/15/14 Big Sexy Music had the honor of gracing one of New York’s best sounding stages – The revered Mercury Lounge. Opening for Wee Andy and the Midnight Sound, Big Sexy Music warmed up the room with some hard hitting sexiness, performing songs from the new album “In Your Garden”. What a great way to end the tremendously sexy year of performances!
November 16th 2014, EMZ Big Sexy Music took to the WNYC Greenspace to audition for the battle of the Boroughs showcase in 2015. It was a cold day but once Big Sexy Music took the stage it was HOT HOT HOT. The results for the competition are released in January, 2015 and we are hoping that Big Sexy Music will have the opportunity to grace the stage again to compete! Watch this space.
AH Presents: Big Sexy Music at Sidewalk Cafe. On October 1st, Big Sexy Music showcased some new sweet and vicious tunes at the Sidewalk Cafe, New York City, from the forthcoming album “In Your Garden”.
The night was crystal clear and perfectly sexy as we had the honor of serenading a room full of sexy international individuals. Out of the studio into the evening we took the audience through a range of sexy emotions from the light of the garden down to the deep soul of the earth. In short it was real…real SEXY.
EmZ sang with soulful fire burning in the veins, burning down the house. Zandrina Charles aka “Little Sexy” with her soul sister harmonies and her powerful sweet Karen Carpenter voice is always complimentary – together it’s like leather and lace! Eugene Mohammad is right on point with driving catchy drums locking it down with Jonathan Hanley who always puts the BIG in Big Sexy Music. Al Craig’s tore his guitar to shreds like never before and special guest Johnny Young was ridiculously profound on the keys ripping his first show with the band to shreds. What a musician!! And “Raven” Seaton Hancok is just a monster virtuoso super man on sax!! Getting Bigger and Sexier by the minute…
Thank you to Alan Rand, Adam Brown and Joe Bottari for the photos!
It was a hot night in Harlem on Sat July 5th as Big Sexy Music graced the stage at the New Amsterdam Music Association. With some new moves and some new grooves Big Sexy Music delivered the perfect mix of smooth blues meets pop rock, with a jazz vibe that only Harlem can keep alive. It’s what you call authentic. It’s a particular energy in the room that can only be described as electric. We played some virginal sweet and vicious tunes that we are working on for the upcoming Big Sexy album “In your Garden” and its getting Bigger and Sexier by the minute.
The whole night was a family affair including amazing performances by The Syndicate, The Signifyers and Caprice Starbrite & Kizmit who blew the roof off the house. It it sure was rocking and Big Sexy closed the night off with some classics and a whole lot of sexy!
Big Sexy Music is on a whole new adventure. It’s a big sexy world out there and it’s sounding good. If you listen closely enough the beat just rises from the street and it’s a sweet and vicious treat.
November was a fervently fantastic and festive month for EmZ Big Sexy Music with a number of fabulous rehearsals at Funkadelic Studios and sexy shows covering the breadth of New York City. The Big Sexy Crew graced Manhattan stages from the Highline Ballroom on 16th street to The Shrine in hip Harlem and of course our favorite stompin ground the New Amsterdam Music Association. Big Sexy nights, lots of sweet and vicious music and a whole lot of soul…
On November 5th EmZ was invited to host the CD release party for Witness a Downfall’s new CD “Lessons in the Making” at The Highline Ball Room. A beautiful venue with pristine sound, EmZ introduced a stellar line up of hard hitting musical acts including Big Sexy Music, Grand Electric, More than Fate, Burial Park, We Fall As Heroes and Witness a Downfall. Check out the interview with all the bands from the night below:
On the 12th of November we went uptown to the The Shrine. Located in Harlem at 2271 Adam Clayton Powell Jr Blvd, The Shrine is a smashing venue for live world music of all descriptions. It was the first time the Big Sexy Crew had the pleasure of performing at this lively joint and boy did we rock it. We laid down the cool jazz vibe and we also got pretty rock and roll keeping the crowd hot on a chilly November Night. Many of the members from the New Amsterdam Music Association came out to support us which was beautiful.

With a perfect ending to the month we celebrated birthday’s and the oncoming of winter at the New Amsterdam Music Association‘s “Ladies Night” on November 30th. In a celebration of the feminine the evening was dedicated to the ladies of NAMA and a talented line up of women who took the stage for improvised vocal jams and a good old fashioned soul sister shakedown. The president of NAMA Antionette Hamlin celebrate her birthday with a song and we were also fortunate to have Carol Johnson on stage, an original singer from The Marvelettes, who performed Mr.Postman. The highlight of the evening was when eight female vocalists took to the stage with mics in hand to do an acappella wail which brought down the house. A great night indeed!
We spent a beautiful fall day shooting a Big Sexy Music video in lower Manhattan in October for the Big Sexy song “Fallen Angel” and it’s coming soon!! It was a completely sexy day and three part shoot with the visionary cinematographer Samantha Silver who began by harnessing a camera to the front of a Mercedes convertible while we drove around looking sexy in downtown New York. The second part of the day Samantha set up a darkened room so that images of New York could be projected onto EmZ and members of the Big Sexy crew dancing around and having a big sexy time. To finish of the 12 hour day we completed the final shot on a rooftop in Manhattan with some sexy friends and a makeshift set made perfect by the backdrop of the New York sky line. Its going to be an amazing video and we can’t wait to share it with you! Big thanks to the Big Sexy crew for making it happen and especially Samantha Silver for her expert work and keen eye.
