Love Lane Gang Brings “Swing, Jug Band, Anything Goes!” to Green Parrot
The Love Lane Gang brings their eclectic mix of Swing, jump swing, jug band – anything goes to The Green Parrot stage on Thursday, May 22nd beginning at 9:00 PM.
The Love Lane Gang plays music that spans generations, as well as embodies them. The emphasis is on swing: classics from the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s, done in a refreshing new style that incorporates the Hot Club approach with island flourishes. Dust Bowl ballads, old school country from Hank Williams and Johnny Cash, rockabilly and surf music classics and little-known gems, and tunes from Sixties stars like The Beatles and The Kinks, all fit in alongside original songs that sound like they could have come from any of those eras. Offbeat instrumentation like mandolin, accordion, ukulele, washboard, and a kazoo horn section add to familiar guitar, bass, and harmonica, creating a broad musical palette which they use to color their performances. But you needn’t pay too much mind to all that serious musical analysis – it’s just plain funs
