Selling out Carnage Hall just a few nights ago, Lake Street Dive heads to Colbert Nation for an encore and was featured on The Ellen Show Today!

FAN: I was in the audience tonight at the Colbert Report and during the Q & A asked: "What's on your Ipad/What are you listening to these days?" His reply? "Lake Street Dive" - Just wanted to let you know!

Celebs like Katie Curic, Kevin Bacon and Francis Mcdormand recently tweeted out her love for this jazz band. 

Lake Street Dive makes the most of pop music virtues: solid, evocative song craft; propulsive grooves; and Price’s disarming, forthright vocals. However, it’s a personal strain of pop that is refracted through the band members’ rich backgrounds: a sinewy Motown bass line is reborn with woody heft on Kearney’s upright, Calabrese’s drumming mixes timekeeping with more adventurous jazz-inflected outbursts, McDuck’s nimble trumpet is an unexpectedly warm counterpoint to Price’s singing. It all makes for a sound with familiar roots, but with a slant that is entirely their own. Lake Street Dive’s eventual artistic breakthrough came not without struggle, and still surprises original instigator Mike “McDuck”
