In the spirit of continuing to be inspired by re-imaginings of popular songs, I give you the group Lake Street Dive. Jeff introduced us to their rendition of Michael Jackson’s “I Want You Back” this morning, and we were tickled pink.
Lake Street Dive first got together when they were students at Boston’s New England Conservatory. The group is made up of drummer Mike Calabrese, bassist Bridget Kearney, vocalist Rachael Price, and trumpet-guitarist Mike “McDuck” Olson.
They are currently on tour in the US – though not in Chicago anytime soon, unfortunately. If you happen to be overseas starting November 22nd, maybe you can catch them in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Amsterdam, Paris Dublin, or the U.K. A bunch of jet-setters they are. They’re on their way to stardom; Katie Couric recently tweeted about them, so you know, it’s just a matter of time before they’re superstars. It would be well-deserved.
Check out their gorgeous take on “I Want You Back” right here:
