Lost Dog Found brings swing to Friday Night Live
Winery Sponsor: Fritz Winery
Concert Sponsor: Cloverdale Computer
Friday Night Live, Cloverdale’s free outdoor summer concert series presented by the Cloverdale Arts Alliance, continues at 7 p.m. this Friday, July 19, with the modern swing sounds of Lost Dog Found on the Downtown Plaza stage.
Lost Dog Found, named 2013 Best Local Band by the Press Democrat, has been the driving force of the current swing revival around the San Francisco bay area since 2010. Their high energy original tunes take elements of swing, jump blues, New Orleans soul, and rockabilly, combining them for an ultra-modern take on a classic sound.
Known for their crowd interactive live performances, the band has modernized the sound of swing beyond the typical niche market. Inspired both by his love for the music of the ’30s-’50s, and by the swing revival bands of the ’90s, band leader Stevie Mac focuses on creating a modern take that will equally please both swing dancers and the average set of ears.
A review in Retrospectivemag.com says, “Every single tune is a jumpin’, jivin’ classic that will rock your 21st century jukebox till it steams at the seams.”
Lost Dog Found’s set is blistering with all original tunes and some familiar songs, featuring saucy lyrics, hot backbeats, swinging horn lines, thumping bass and fiery guitar licks.
Festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. in the 100 block of N. Cloverdale Blvd. with the Certified Farmers Market, which also offers a variety of craft vendors and food booths. Local restaurants are open for early bird and late night specials. Craft beer, local wines and non-alcoholic beverages are available for purchase during the evening. Music begins at 7:00 p.m.
