Band of Lovers (Rochester + Albany, NY) 8 pm Now in their second year living and performing on the road, Band of Lovers are modern day troubadours. Hailing from upstate New York, Dave Strumfeld and Sabina Beachdell formed the band in California in the fall of 2013 and have since recorded their full-length debut album 'the Coast' and toured cross-country twice. The Coast hits the shelves 2.14.15, and the band is on their third country-wide tour to celebrate its release.
Once described as "the orchestral love child of Brian Wilson and Laura Nyro," their original tunes range in genre from folk to classic pop-rock to ballads, with a strong dose of atypical harmonies. Along with Strumfeld's guitar and Beachdell's ukulele, this tour introduces guest member Ryan Chase on the keys and ukulele bass.
