Founded by Eugene Cho and Dan Balis, and fronted by vocalist Adeline MIchele, Escort is a 17 member NYC-based disco act with a reputation for creating a 70s disco, R&B and soul sound with a modern twist.

The band is touring and headlining their first annual Escort Halloween show with the St. Lucia, DJ Druzz, and Penguin Prison at Webster Hall on October 27th.

Sonically they remind me a lot of a more organic version of Donna Summer – with the same amount of raw, almost primal immediacy and abandon. It’ll be a show to look forward to.
