Over the past year or so, their video of the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back," sung on a Boston street corner, has gone viral and for good reason.
The band recently made their TV debut on The Colbert Report, upstaged Marcus Mumford and Joan Baez at a concert to promote Inside Llewyn Davis the film by the Coen Brothers. Influences: 60s groups, Motown, throw in some 70s and a little jazz. The band: Rachael Price, vocals; Bridget Kearney, stand-up bass; Mike Calabrese, drums; Mike Olsen, guitar/trumpet, combine interesting musical arrangements, great harmonies and outstanding vocals. From what I've seen, they work hard at their craft, and seems to have fun doing it. Check out this cover of Fleetwood Mac's 'Second Hand News."
You know when a band is just on the verge of taking the next step... that's Lake Street Dive right now. As I write this, I'm taking a first listen to the the new album. You can check that out on their website lakestreetdive.com
