Lake Street Dive / Kitty Daisy & Lewis

Lake Street Dive

After a jaw-dropping performance at a concert event in late 2013 that celebrated the music of Coen Brothers’ film Inside Llewyn Davis, Lake Street Dive burst onto the music scene with the release of their critically-acclaimed album Bad Self Portraits (2014). An incredible year followed: Rolling Stone magazine called them “the year’s best new band,” and the group showed off their chops with stunning performances on multiple late night television shows including, Late Show With David Letterman, Ellen, and even The Colbert Report. In fact, Stephen Colbert counts himself as one of the band’s biggest fans. The members of Lake Street Dive met as students at the New England Conservatory in Boston, and hail from across the country: trumpet/guitar player Mike Olson is from Minneapolis; vocalist Rachael Price from outside Nashville; stand-up bassist Bridget Kearney is an Iowa native, and drummer Mike Calabrese hails from Philadelphia.

Kitty Daisy & Lewis

London siblings Kitty, Daisy & Lewis Durham are talented songwriters/musicians whose background is rooted in the tradition where songs are handed down and sung at family gatherings, playing any instrument they lay their hands on. Their songs are an eclectic mix up of Pop, R’n’B & Blues, Psychedelic Rock, Soul, Country, Jazz and Ska. On the group’s latest album, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis The Third, themes of fresh adulthood and lost loves run throughout. With the enlisted help of legendary Clash guitarist Mick Jones as producer, KD&L recorded The Third in their self-constructed, 16-track analogue studio in a derelict Indian restaurant in Camden Town. The band has sold over a quarter of a million albums worldwide, sold out headline tours and have opened shows for major bands including Coldplay and Stereophonics. From a very young age they have been inspiring audiences at their packed shows, each taking turns on vocals and jumping from one instrument to another. Joining them on stage are their mum former Raincoats drummer Ingrid Weiss on bass, the original Bombay Bad Boy – Daddy Grazz – on rhythm guitar, and Jamaican trumpet legend Eddie “Tan Tan” Thornton.
