Still riding the success of their 2009 sophomore LP, Brooklynati, and now the recent release of Donwill’s solo debut, Don Cusack In High Fidelity, Tanya Morgan is excited to announce upcoming Spring performance dates, including their first ever trip to Europe.
Starting their string of dates, Tanya Morgan will be performing at the First Book Charity Concert, an event they will curate alongside Move Forward Music this Friday, April 30th at Crash Mansion in New York City. The charity, First Book, provides new books at low cost or free to thousands of communities that are unable to purchase books for children in need. “The book drive was presented to us a while ago and at the time we had no idea that it would be related to such a wonderful cause,” says Donwill. “I personally am very happy to be involved with an organization devoted to giving back. If my celebrity can go towards causing change and helping enrich a child’s then it’s all worth it.” Joining Tanya Morgan, Buckshot and fellow Duck Down Records artists Skyzoo and Torae will also be performing. The show kicks off at 7:30pm and tickets for the event are $12, with all proceeds going to First Book.
Staying busy, the following day Tanya Morgan will be performing at the Bamboozle Music Festival on Saturday, May 1st at the Meadowlands Arena in New Jersey. Performing alongside pop superstars Paramore, Ke$ha, and Drake, Tanya Morgan is ready to bring their unique brand of hip-hop out in full force for festival goers who will be spending most of the day taking in predominately alternative rock and pop acts. Tanya Morgan’s set will kick off at 1:45pm at the B-Boy Stage.
Finally, Tanya Morgan is excited to bring Brooklynati overseas for the first time. “We have toured most of the US and Canada but it’s overdue time we showed the world what we can do,” says Von Pea. “Our peers are always amazed we haven’t been to Europe yet because they know the brand of hip-hop we make is loved abroad.” With a string of shows already confirmed, including dates in Ipswich on May 13th, Penzance on May 14th, and a May 15th show in Cardiff – fans can expect a handful of forthcoming shows to be announced in the coming weeks. Von Pea says, “These dates are just the first strike. We are about to build another part of Brooklynati in Europe!”
