ALBUM RELEASE CONCERT
About the show
Join NYC nightlife and cabaret staple, Marty Thomas in celebrating the long awaited release of his sophomore album 'Slow Dancing With a Boy'. This album was born of the epiphany that the artists coming of age years were not his own. He traded them to his church, his family and the deeply troubled belief that he wasn't worthy of honest love. Convinced if he told enough lies and believed them that he could fit in and have a happy life by pleasing everyone around him but himself. Obviously, the truth is always king and will always find the light eventually. 'Slow Dancing With A Boy', is a collection of music from Thomas' middle school, high school and college years rearranged, reclaimed and placed firmly in the light. It's a second chance to live truthfully and make music honestly. Slow Dancing With A Boy is officially released on Broadway Records December 6, and is available on all digital and streaming platforms. Physical copies will be available for sale the night of the concert.
With a full party band, an impressive lineup of guest artists, a DJ and a school dance photographer- Marty is throwing a “second chance prom” and inviting all who are moved by the gesture to dress in their finest for an evening of music, dancing and reminiscing. You can redo that prom "couples photograph" you botched the first time around. You can dance with the prom date of your dreams, or with your very best friends because finally there are no rules or expectations. If you had a “do-over”, what would you wear to your prom?
Make some new memories.
