JPR Presents: Lake Street Dive One World Concert November 1st at SOU Recital Hall

Aug 23, 2015

JPR and the Oregon Center for the Arts at Southern Oregon University present Lake Street Dive in concert Sunday night, November 1st at the SOU Music Recital Hall in Ashland at 8pm.

Lake Street Dive's unique musical sound is grounded by a Motown-meets-Muscle Shoals bass line, spiced with adventurous jazz-infected outbursts and propelled by lead singer Rachael Price’s powerful and expressive vocals.

Lake Street Dive powers past nicety to connect with the passion that brings blood and sweat to the tears that heartache songs need in order to thrive.
- Ken Tucker, NPR

While Price's vocals are front and center, all four virtuoso band members — including bassist Bridget Kearney (formerly of the Boston alt-bluegrass outfit Joy Kills Sorrow), drummer Michael Calabrese, and guitarist/horn player Mike "McDuck" Olson — write the band's music. Lake Street Dive is attracting young audiences all across the country playing original music that seems more at home in their parents’ generation – infused with '30s jazz, ’50s rockabilly and doo-wop, and ’60s blues and soul. The New York Daily News says Lake Street Dive’s music “melds its history of sources seamlessly, making rock and jazz swing as one” and Rolling Stone says that Rachael Price’s “big voice triggers flashbacks of Amy Winehouse and her forebears.”

Don’t miss this special opportunity to hear one of the hottest bands on the music scene today.

Tickets are $39 Reserved / $10 SOU Student w/ID. Tickets are available online HERE, or at the Box Office: 541-552-6348.
