LANCO Plays To A Large Crowd At Sheffield's Quaker Steak and Lube
Nashville up-n-comers LANCO played to a large post-Memorial Day crowd at Sheffield's Quaker Steak and Lube late Wednesday afternoon. As part of the Lube's "Afternoon Saloon" series of concerts, the show was sponsored by Cleveland's Country station, WGAR.
Staying ahead of the inclement weather, the outfit took the stage at about 6:15 and played an acoustic set of tunes primarily from their January 2018 drop Hallelujah Nights. The band's freshman effort was the first album in ten years to hit the Country charts at #1 upon its debut. Their chart-topping hit "Greatest Love Story" anchored the show, as the band was able to encore with it about twenty minutes before the rains finally hit.
The crowd, accustomed to the Lube's lineup of concerts spotlighting Nashville's newer stars, sung along to the band's offerings. "Troublemaker," a catchy pop-country confection, was the first tune the outfit offered. Frontman and principal songwriter Brandon Lancaster took to the mic and congratulated the Cleveland Cavaliers on making the NBA Finals. He then sprung into "Troublemaker" to the approval of the audience.
Giving the crowd what they came to hear, they offered "Long Live Tonight," "Born To Love You," and "Pick You Up" among the eight song set.
Short for "Lancaster and Company," LANCO is a crowd-pleasing pop outfit with a bit of twang to it. Much like The Band Perry, they're sure to appeal to the crossover crowd that doesn't like their music too Hank Williamsy, but loves a good electric guitar. This band's going places; try and catch them this summer as they tour in support of Dierks Bentley.
