Music & Theater

With whole-hearted soul and voice, Kalamazoo's Lower Leisure Class write, release, and perform energized earworms grounded in rock 'n' roll while sailing through the sonic stratosphere. The sextet's acclaimed debut LP, Stories from the Lower Leisure Class, supplies "an unmistakable, identifiable restless sound" to listeners who’ll keep "spinning this record... over and over again", according to Local Spins' Ryan Boldrey. "To see this group shape their music around those stories is where things take off”, writes Derek Phillips at Glorious Noise. "It’s new, but steeped in nostalgia and references any good midwesterner will recognize." Their stage skills burnished to a fine shine as members of powerhouse Michigan bands including King Tammy, the Sinatras, and the Sleestacks - all of whose Leppotone recordings command a cult following to this day - the LLC move audiences to dance, sing along, activate, and engage. Thousands of NPR Tiny Desk Contest viewers can't be wrong - miss the Lower Leisure Class's November 16th appearance at Bell's Back Room, with special guests and good friends Brown Company, at your own peril.
