(Lander, Wyo.) - Lake Street Dive performed at last night's Lander LIVE
concert in Jaycee park.
A band touring with their freshly minted album, Side Pony, this four-some
from Brooklyn, New York had most attendees in Jaycee Park up and dancing
with their fresh soul-pop tunes.
"Wow! What a performance last night with Low Water String Band and
headliner, Lake Street Dive," said Rose Burke, the coordinator of the
series for the Lander Chamber. "Last night we were blown away by the
attendance and we are reporting a record number of 1,500 attendees."
Burke also said the concert attracted a record number of visitors from
outside of Fremont County attending the show. Rachel Price the lead singer
of Lake Street Dive said, "Lander LIVE is just the kind of audience and
venue that we love performing at, intimate with a high energy crowd."
The Low Water String Band, the Lander local group that opened for Lake
Street Dive was another highlight of the evening. Before the show the band
was able to visit Popo Agie Falls and trumpet and guitar player for Lake
Street Dive, Mike "McDuck" Olsen even bought a new performance trumpet at
Fremont Music on Main Street.
"Seeing our community host and show up for world class artists like Lake
Street Dive is so wonderful," said Burke. "We hope to continue to put
together high caliber shows like this one that bring our community together
and help attract visitors to town. A huge thanks to everyone from sponsors
to donors to volunteers that helped to make it possible." The last Lander
LIVE concert of the 2016 season will be in two weeks on August 25th with
headliner alt rock group, Fruit Bats.
