Lake Street Dive is an exception to the rule that real soul music rarely comes out of Boston. In fact, the foursome plays the genre as if they had invented it. Lead vocalist Rachael Price’s charming voice and charismatic stage presence highlights the heart of the band, yet doesn’t define it completely. Her voice hovers over multiple instruments including trumpet, upright bass, guitar and drums played by accomplished band mates Bridget Kearney, Mike Olsen and Mike Calabrese. Beginning as a country act that played free concerts, the musicians looked beyond basic indie rock to offer the world a real soul-shaking alternative.
