“A holiday funk-tacular” - Time Out New York

“Original songs that celebrate diversity” - OUT.com


GRAMMY-nominated rock percussionist Everett Bradley (E Street Band, Bon Jovi) just announced the return of his beloved holiday funk revue Holideliccelebrating with a 12-show run at The Lucille Lortel Theatre in NYC from December 10 through 31. This is part of the theater’s holiday performance series Tinsel: A Global Holiday Celebration,running from December 6-31 and featuring effervescent live music, performance, and dance with leading artists from around the globe.

In Holidelic, Bradley plays the role of Papadelic, Funk’s Father Christmas, an amalgamation of George Clinton and Santa Claus, featuring holiday-themed funk songs written by Bradley and brought to life by an array of top shelf noise makers.

The show debuted in 2002 after Bradley released a holiday album called Toy. “After 9/11, I felt like we all needed to heal, and the way I was going to do that was by writing Christmas songs,” he explains. “Then I got the idea to combine two of my favorite things - Christmas and funk.” From the moment Bradley stepped onstage in a big furry white coat, sunglasses and 6-inch platform shoes, audiences went wild & have been selling out night after night ever since.
