GRASS VALLEY, Calif. August 4, 2016 – Lolo Gervais plans a triple CD release party and video debut complete with cocktails, cake, prizes and musical tomfoolery on Friday, August 26 at The Center for the Arts.
Stirring up a mix of classic modern pop and rock tunes into a tight neo-vintage party soundtrack Lolo Gervais takes tunes of one style and recreates them into roaring 20’s, swinging 30’s, New Orleans funky boogaloo, swanky 50’s & 60’s, classic early Motown and beyond.
Describing the bands music Gervais says, “Think Michael Jackson meets Louis Armstrong, the Clash as a jazzed up sing-along groove, Daft Punk, Sting and Paula Abdul running headlong into a funky old school swing. Or maybe classic disco as soulful gospel, Pharrel Williams, Train and Huey Lewis getting all dressed up with a touch of old school Jackson 5 or African Highlife grooves laid over the top.”
Gervais and Aginsky are kindred musical spirits who’ve separately worked alongside Zap Mama, Mavis Staples, Pink, Chris Isaak, Etta James, Taj Mahal, Charlie Hunter & Pete Escovedo. With Jacob’s arranging skills, new becomes old and yet new again.
The band is excited to release 3 new CD’s this summer following dates at night clubs and performing arts venues from San Francisco out to Colorado.
