A group of industry professionals, tastemakers, and music lovers assembled to hear Jon Batiste and Stay Human play the Man Made Music Primetime Salon held at NeueHouse in Soho. The Primetime Salon series provides an environment for executives in the brand, music, television, entertainment and advertising industries to come together for exposure to fresh, young talent they might not otherwise get to meet in such an intimate environment.
Batiste and Stay Human are known for their dynamic on stage audience engagement and musical prowess. The musicians create a distinctive sound – blending jazz, funk, rock, pop, and more – that is embraced by listeners as “social music.” By encouraging participation, Batiste raises the level of human interaction at his shows thus delivering a unique experience in today’s “plug-in/tune-out” world.
“John and Stay Human blew the roof off the place,” Man Made Music’s founder and lead composer Joel Beckerman told Post Magazine. “They treat music as life, and life as music, and it’s completely infectious. All the cool people already know them and 2014 is the year that everyone will get to know them.”
Batiste and Stay Human’s debut full length album Social Music is out now. Jon and the band are currently on tour (including New York City’s Webster Hall on April 19) and will be playing festivals this summer and touring Europe in July.
