After going worldwide via The New York Times FB Live feed to end 2016, a quarter million views later, Charlotte’s favorite holiday musical is back for 2017 and better than ever with Grammy nominated vocal group, the Hamiltones! In its 5th year, A Soulful Noel is an original musical revue telling the age old story of the reason for the season. The cast of OnQ creatives re-frame tradition in a con temporary way with classics such as, ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas, Little Drummer Boy, and What Do the Lonely Do. Fill your cup of eggnog with some R&B, Funk, Gospel, Soul, and a dash of Noel.
“Even if you didn’t experience the three-act narrative of the show, A Soulful Noel functions as a singular holiday record. Songs like “Little Funky Drummer Boy,” performed vocally by OnQ mastermind Quentin Talley, have the energy and vibe of a D’Angelo track, with a bit of funk in the mix. “Oh Come Oh Come Emmanuel” begins as a sparse and classical hymnal, as performed by TRS, before kicking into a reggae-style beat and funky organ instrumentation.” – Andy Smith, Charlotte Magazine
“The 9 song album is a soulful, funky and jazzy interpretation of several classic holiday songs that also incorporates some splendid spoken word poetry. If you are not yet in the holiday spirit, this album, which also serves as a fundraiser for the 501c(3) non-profit arts organization, OnQ Performing Arts, will surely put you in the mood.” – Cameron Lee, CLTure
