The Love Lane Gang is a homegrown band that charms and thrills both locals and visitors with their rollicking raucous ruckus. With an age range among the members of over thirty years, they bring a wide variety of experience and musical tastes to bear and appeal to music lovers of all ages. They’ve brought back skiffle and updated it for the present. It’s impossible to keep from smiling amidst their mirthful musical mayhem!

 

They will be playing regular gigs at McConnell’s Irish Pub Fridays at 8:30 PM and Saluté On The Beach, Sundays at 5:30 PM. They will also be playing at Sunset Pier, Wednesday, May 13 at 6:30 PM and Rum Row at The Gates Hotel, Saturday, May 16 at 4 PM.

 

The band’s emphasis is on ragtime, swing, and jug band music from the 1930s and 1940s, done in a refreshing new style that melds Hot Club gypsy jazz with contemporary modes. Also, Dust Bowl ballads, old school country from Hank Williams and Dolly Parton, rockabilly and surf music classics and rarer gems, Mersey Beat tunes from Sixties stars like The Beatles, The Kinks, and The Rolling Stones, and carefully chosen songs from current artists like Willie Nelson and Old Crow Medicine Show, all fit in alongside original songs that sound like they could have come from any of those eras.

 

Offbeat instrumentation, including mandolin, fiddle, cello, washboard, and a kazoo horn section, added to familiar guitar, bass, harmonica, drums and percussion, creates 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 – they’re just plain fun!
