Silver Spring Town Center, Inc. is pleased to announce that the 2nd Story Band will perform at Silver Spring’s Veterans Plaza, Thursday, May 5, 2011 at 7 pm. The performance is free.
Meagan Lane and Geoff de Mers, founders of Wammy nominated 2nd Story Band grew up in the '50s and '60s during one of the most musically rich periods in the evolution of American Pop Music. It was a time when Rock-a-billy, Doo Whop, R & B, Tejano, Calypso, Cowboy Music (C&W), Swing, Rock & Roll, Folk, and Folk Rock could be heard on commercial radio. In fact since 1978, as a result of their ability to incorporate these and many other styles including West African, Latin and Celtic, Meagan and Geoff have developed one of the most interesting and fresh sounds to come out of the Metro Washington, DC area.
“A Jammin' World Beat Blend of Funky Blues and Swing, Pop Rock, Caribbean and Tex-Mex Rhythms with a bit of New Orleans Funkiness thrown in! "A FIRST RATE 2nd STORY WOMAN... Meagan Lane's voice is a constant surprise - sweet, arch, rough, wanton and worldly in turn,... a treat to experience!" Eve Ziebart- The Washington Post
