Lake Street Dive is a modern day quartet that weaves R&B, jazz, soul, and 60s-era rock into a unique, rollicking mix.
Known for their exhilarating live performances, singer Rachael Price, drummer Mike Calabrese, bassist Bridget Kearney, and trumpet-playing guitarist Mike "McDuck" Olson first met and formed at Boston's New England Conservatory playing avant-garde country in 2004. It wasn't long till the group's natural pop instincts kicked in and took them in a different direction—one that has charmed critics and audiences alike.
"With award-winning jazz vocalist Rachael Price as their secret ingredient, LSD boasts an unflagging collective charisma and sense of humor that will take them far." - Rolling Stone
Thirteen years and one extremely popular YouTube video of them covering Michael Jackson's "I Want You Back" later, the band is now five albums deep and currently riding high on the success of Side Pony, which was released on Nonesuch Records last year. The album's arrangements offer a knowing nod to the past while the lyrics tackle the pitfalls of modern romance in a manner that’s often more playful than rueful. And Price’s vocals have a teasing swagger to them. Neither her heart nor her hairstyle will be messed with.
Based on their sold out performance at Radio City Music Hall last year, we expect a great turn out and a fantastic, fun show for this year’s opening night.
