St. Lucia Brings A High Energy Performance To A Capacity Crowd In Philly The Electro-Pop Band From Brooklyn Dazzles The City Of Brotherly Love
PHILADELPHIA, PA- The synth-pop band St. Lucia visited the City of Brotherly love Wednesday night playing before a near capacity crowd at the Theater of The Living Arts (TLA).
St Lucia is an electro-pop band from Brooklyn NY and are known for their polished high energy stage shows and 80’s vintage synth and beats. Founded by front man Jean-Philip Grobler St Lucia band members include Ross Clark, Nick Paul, Dustin Kaufman and Patti Beranek. St Lucia is currently touring in support of their latest album Hyperion which dropped this past September.
With a mixture of strobe lights, theatrical smoke and flickering led screens St Lucia took the stage, creating a surreal scene that reminded me of an MTV music video. Patti Beranek taking her place behind the keys, dressed in a vintage kimono while the synth driven intro for “September” filled the venue with its driving beat, the crowd consumed by the jam. The band followed that up delivering the feel good with “China Shop”, Grobler’s dance moves and vocals combining with the bands delicious techno melodies causing the crowd to dance and sing along.
St Lucia continued their set playing a selection of songs from their new and past albums including “Tokyo,” Do You Remember” and a stunning rendition of “Dancing on Glass” that had the crowd captivated by the bands stunning sonics and visual prowess. St Lucia played a total of twenty-two songs including the encore, transforming the TLA into a retro dance party via the bands synth heavy, rejuvenated 80’s delivery.
