On Behalf of the Carlyle Club: Tribute to the music of Stevie Wonder with Snuhgie Stocks
Aug 24 @ 8:00 pm

Robert Snúhgie Stock: annual tribute to the music

Robert Snúhgie Stocks performs his annual heart-felt tribute to the music of Stevie Wonder at the Carlyle Club.

Robert’s Bio: You know there’s something special about an artist when they leave you wanting to listen and hear more! This is clearly the case when you first experience the soulful sounds of Snúhgie. If you haven’t heard the name before, prepare to be impressed.

Robert Stocks, AKA Snúhgie, is perhaps one of the most talented artist in the music industry today. The name Snúhgie was affectionately given to Robert by his late Aunt, it literally just stuck to him over the years and has become the name that his fans have grown to recognize.

As a native of Washington DC, Snúhgie attended Duke Ellington School of the Arts. His debut album, “High Definition Love” earned him recognition in On Tap Magazine as one of “10 Hot Local Musicians To Put On Your Radar.”

This singer/songwriter can grace any stage, and

really “brings it” with soothing textured vocals, wrapped in with the amazing ability to play several instruments.

By far, Snúhgie is not a newcomer to the world of music, having worked with a range of noteworthy artist from John Legend to Yolanda Adams to Wynton Marsalis. He has also served as Music Director for Anthony David, Dawn Robinson and Ginuwine.

Often compared to the musical stylin’s of industry legends such as Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye, Snúhgie is keeping the love and timeless sound of classic R&B/Soul music alive, while blazing a trail for new music.

Join Pink PaLiSh for an Evening of Funk & Soul, sure to tantalize your senses and stir your soul with flawless harmonies, backed by intense beats and rhythms

The music industry is forever evolving and so are many of its key players, the artists and musicians that keep it ticking. The Metropolitan Washington D.C. (DMV) area is a hot bed of talent. Included in this local artistic movement is the renowned powerhouse group, Pink PaLiSh! Who is Pink PaLiSh you ask? A dynamic Funk and Soul trio, made up of three extremely talented singers: Pam Ward, Alisha Glover and Shang. This extremely diverse ensemble never ceases to turn heads with their larger- than-life vocals.

What makes Pink PaLiSh such an exceptional group is that each member has an established career and fan base, shining in the roles of solo artist, actress, songwriter, band member, author, poet, musician and much more! Lending to the appeal of this fusion of sexy divas are their rock solid friendships.

As the music drops during any Pink PaLiSh performance, an overwhelming burst of excitement overcomes audiences. And when their flawlessly harmonized sound, backed by intense beasts and rhythms, inundates the venue, the crowd automatically stands to their feet. There is no stopping the rocking crowds who embrace the group’s many selections, which span from Funk, Soul and R&B to Pop and Spiritual music. Pink PaLiSh desires to create perfect music, which entertains and motivates their fans. While the group certainly has a musical niche for Funk and Soul, they are open to performing all genre of music.

In the Spring of 2018, Pink PaLiSh released their debt original single, “Do What I Gotta Do”, which is available on all major digital media outlets. The song has gained quick momentum, as it spins over the airwaves around the world.

The beautiful thing about Pink PaLiSh is that the group is void of egos. All of the members share the spotlight, regularly rotating from lead to background vocalist. Each time these ladies hit the stage, prepare to be thoroughly entertained by the magical power, harmony, class and beauty of Pink PaLiSh!
