St. Lucia Cover Presentation

Posted by showbizdeluxe on November 16, 2014 at 12:20 AM Comments comments (0)

CHICAGO, IL (November 16th, 2014) –This past week, Christian F. Scalise of Showbiz Deluxe presented synth-pop band, St. Lucia with their official November/December 2014 cover backstage before their second and final electrifying sold-out show at the Metro in Chicago on Tuesday November 11th, 2014!!

 

The stamina and stage presence of all members, especially Jean-Philip was quite remarkable. Throughout the entire evening Jean-Philip danced and played along with his guitar while a stunning light and video show took place on the stage.

 

Make no mistake, this band is headed for superstardom and it’s only a matter of a few years before they become as recognizable and successful as Coldplay. There’s something very unique about the quality of their sound, style and genuine bond with each other. We look forward to the expansion of St Lucia’s music and watching their already solid fan base continue to grow across the globe.

 

Currently on a national tour in support of their latest album “When The Night,” St .Lucia (consisting of Jean-Philip Grobler, Patricia Beranek, Ross Clark, Nick Paul and Dustin Kaufman) has recently toured with Ellie Goulding and Charli XCX, performed at festivals including Lollapalooza, Governors Ball and Firefly, not to mention shared stages with fun., Two Door Cinema Club, Young The Giant, The Shins and more.

 

Stay tuned for Part I of our exclusive interview with the band later this month. In the meantime, visit www.StLuciaNewYork.com to learn more about the band and for tour dates!
