Baby and the Luvies is a local band that performs 1960s-style Memphis soul music.
Apart from making some terrific music, the band also has strong Bernal Heights DNA, with celebrity Bernal writer Chris Colin on bass, Bernal journalist Lessley Anderson on vocals/keyboards, and Bernal neighbor Galen Krumel on guitar. Plus, Bernalwood’s sources tell us singer Ilana Diamond has been known to spend the night in Bernal from time to time. (Shhhhh.)
Baby and Luvies has a big gig tonight at Amnesia on Valencia, starting at 9 pm, and you are sooooooo invited. It will be very fun.
One way or another, definitely definitely definitely give Baby and the Luvies a listen. The band’s CD has been stuck in your Bernalwood editor’s car CD player for the last month, and I’m pleased to report that I am in no hurry to get it out. Good stuff.
