Montreal-born pianist, accordionist, producer, composer and music director, Ric’key Pageot comes from a musical family of Haitian descent. He worked with Cirque Du Soleil as a musical director, keyboardist and accordionist for the show “Delirium,” and since 2008 has toured with Madonna on four world tours. When he is not touring with Madonna, Pageot is leading his band Parlor Social with Dessy Di Lauro. Together they have designed a new and unique genre of original music they call Speakeasy-soul/Prohibition Funk, which seamlessly blends the styles of 1920-30’s Harlem renaissance jazz with today's contemporary urban sounds.
Pageot has written and recorded with Earth Wind & Fire, Jill Scott, and up and coming R&B sensation Justin Parks. He has also toured with major music icons such as Diana Ross, Cher, and the late Dr. John. He is a Steinway Artist.
