Courtney and I had the pleasure of seeing Lake Street Dive on Tuesday at our awesome Beachland Ballroom – just a hop skip and a jump away. Lake Street Dive is a jazz/swing/pop/soul quartet founded about ten years ago in Boston where they all went to the New England Conservatory of Music. They’re based in Brooklyn now and have recently popped up on several late night talk shows, NPR and are touring all over the place. I first saw them on the Showtime Inside Llewyn Davis concert – which is awesome if you haven’t watched it. Their sold out show in Cleveland was excellent. Rachael Price – their lead singer – is just amazing. Such stage presence, dripping with talent and an amazing voice. I hope they continue to do well – but not too too well so they keep the venues small.
