Lake Street Dive coming to Kingston

The band Lake Street Dive will perform at UPAC in Kingston, Sunday, May 6 at 7 p.m.

From the announcement:


Lake Street Dive are a fascinating blend of influences and complexity: jazz at heart, with an alternative D.I.Y. sensibility and a passion for classic rock and garage aesthetics. The band, comprised of 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. The initial idea was to be a kind of free jazz country band, playing country songs in an avant-garde style, but the group’s natural pop instincts kicked in, and the final sound the band came up with was a bright, fresh, charming, and exploratory version of jazzy pop/rock, full of hooks and plenty of R&B and soul flavors, with a big dose of the Beatles and British Invasion bands. Mikaela Davis will open the show.
