October 30 @ 7:30 pm
Lovewhip is a dance band that jams– and they’ll be in town to rock the house at Provincetown Town Hall on Saturday, October 30 for a special performance. Playing a party-starting mix of psychedelic rock, reggae, dance-pop, and world music, the Boston Award-Winning group whips up infectious original songs for those who love shaking that booty on the dancefloor! Combining the best of world and reggae dance rhythms with 80’s synth, the band’s sound is topped off by singer/guitarist Empress Erin’s soaring psychedelic rock guitar and soulful vocals, creating an “irresistible party soundtrack” that fans love! Think Talking Heads, Gwen Stefani and Daft Punk all rolled into one. With Juicy Jim on bass, backed by drums and sequences in their trio, and saxophone in their quartet. Fans may have heard the band’s song “Wrecking Machine” from their latest album Love Electric on SHOWTIME’s hit TV show Shameless!
The project of frontwoman/guitarist/singer Erin Harpe and bassist Jim Countryman, Lovewhip has been making eclectic dance music since their first release Whip It, Baby! in 2000. Lovewhip’s multicultural influences have ranged from Jamaican reggae and dancehall to Nigerian soukous and highlife, afrobeat, and more recently retro 80’s electro. “The overall concept has always been to lift people out of their daily drudgery and get them dancing and feeling good,” says Harpe. And that’s just what they’ve done, touring regularly around the country to great reactions and dancing crowds.
