Lake Street DiveLAKE STREET DIVE BRINGS JAZZY POP to CLUB HELSINKI HUDSON

(HUDSON, N.Y.) – Lake Street Dive brings its unique fusion of jazz, classical, pop, swing and soul to Club Helsinki Hudson on Saturday, July 6, at 9pm. Lake Street Dive is a unique quartet featuring four jazz- and classical-trained musicians who met at Boston’s New England Conservatory who formed an indie-pop band featuring a trumpet-wielding guitarist, a bassist, a drummer, and a female vocalist with pipes that can seduce you while at the same time they’re knocking you down with sheer power. The wonderful result produces a lazy, strutting New Orleans-inflected version of the Jackson Five’s “I Want You Back” or a steamy jazz-funk version of Hall & Oates’ “Rich Girl.”
