Lafayette Ben Charlatan (12-1:15pm)
Lafayette has evolved from a multi-decade rock n roller, to one discovering, and celebrating the songwriting of Gershwin, Cole Porter and others from the Great American Songbook . He ALSO adds a “lagniappe” of Dr. John, Leon Russel, Tom Waites, Elvis Costello, Velvet Underground, and others whose vibrations are on his frequency. Lafayette also writes songs that, hopefully, sound like they were penned in 1937. Album of 14 songs are “in the can” and will be release in June on vinyl.
LATO (pronounced “late-oh”) began with a four piece band, based out of the DC area, that blended blues, jazz, rock, pop and R & B to create an original sound. With her relocation to Los Angeles, LATO began working with a new group of talented LA area musicians to deliver an enhanced listening experience to her audience. Her second EP will be available for purchase and download in the spring of 2018.
