Lake Street Dive
The 9:30 Club
The men and women of Lake Street Dive visit with Bob, backstage at The 9:30 Club in Washington, DC
Rachael Price, Bridget Kearney, Mike Calabrese and Mike Olson first met in music school at the New England Conservatory in Boston. After dabbling in jazz and classical, they formed Lake Street Dive in 2004 to make their own brand of music. Price is the lead vocalist - Kearney plays upright bass - Calabrese is the drummer and Olson, also known as "McDuck" plays guitar and trumpet. The band is named for the Minneapolis of Olson's youth and a certain street which used to be the home of many, many dive bars. He admits that part of town has changed since then, but is still a little funky and a lot artsy. Lake Street Dive is on tour now and their latest album is titled Side Pony. Bob visited with the band before their show at The 9:30 Club in Washington, DC.
