“The buzz-worthy band that lives at the intersection of the Beatles and Motown gets audiences dancing with its “joyous, upbeat songs and big, groovy vocals” (The Guardian).
This badass group will be at the Filene Center Thursday, June 16 at 8pm.
A good friend sent me the video of Lake Street Dive singing the Jackson 5
“I want you back.” I was blown away by the arrangement and by Rachel Price’s vocals.
The group was was founded in 2004 in Boston, Massachusetts. The band consists of Rachael Price (lead vocals), Mike “McDuck” Olson (trumpet, guitar), Bridget Kearney (upright bass), and Mike Calabrese (drums). They met while attending the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. The band was named after a street with many dive bars in Olson’s hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
