We're back with another rare show! We are delighted to announce that Crying Time (Honkytonk Revisionists, Nashville Apologists) has invited Loretta Lynch to join forces for their Parkway Lounge series in Oakland on Friday, September 8th.
Come and be serenaded lounge-style starting at 9PM (promptly!) You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll stomp your feet. And best of all, it's free. Free. FREEEEEE!*
See you there!
* Though there will be multiple opportunities to be tipsy ;-)
So ... Loretta is 15 years old! Some of you may remember our first formal gig at the Hotel Utah way back in the day. Now - we're all grown up, and ready to celebrate our quinceañera! Damas and chambelanes come on out! We are as happy as a dog with five tails be playing Friday, August 4th at Ira Marlowe's Monkey House (1638 University Ave in Berkeley – right next to the pole dancing school ;-) and even luckier to be sharing the bill with the delightful Special Ghosts! This acoustic ensemble of paranormal investigators (Andy Cowitt, Suki O’Kane, Isabel Samaras, and Michael Wertz) made their debut three years ago as a trio in rustic Port Costa, wowing the crowd at the certainly not haunted Burlington Hotel with their ukulele-and-vocal renditions of mostly unpopular 60's, 70’s, and 80’s classics composed by mostly dead people. This year, they welcomed Suki and her toy drums into the combo, enabling the Ghosts to reach new heights of ramshackle joy with their curated covers and catchy originals.This is an early show, doors at 7PM, show at 7:30 sharp. Come early for a seat!
The Monkey House is an amazing, intimate theater, and you are welcome to bring your own beverages of choice to sip as we serenade you, whether it's fine wine or beer, single malt or sauerkraut juice. Feel free to share! It's always a friendly crowd.
Just a quick note to let you know that we'll be at the infamous Monkey House (voted Best of Oakland/East Bay 2017 Underground Venue!) Friday, August 4th with our good and ultra talented friends Special Ghosts! Mark your calendars now!
Just another reminder that Loretta will be playing this Saturday night April 1st at the Starry Plough (no fooling!) We'll be debuting some fine new songs, dusting off some old, and playing for the debut of big band DanceChant and Vapeulons. If you haven't heard these bands, you are in for a treat. Time to get your funk on! Show starts right at 9PM with Loretta, followed by raucously harmonious DanceChant and capping the evening with the shamanic medicine of Vapeulons! Don't miss it - and bring your dance pants!
