    LANE CHANGEDistrict Stage, 7-10pm

    Rock and Soul
    LANE CHANGE began in 2013 when four eclectic musicians came together for the one thing they had in common at the time, their love for music and performing. Although their musical tastes were as diverse as their backgrounds, they soon found that their differences would help them focus their sound on a sub-genre of music, ROCK and SOUL.

    LANE CHANGE is a throwback power trio combining tasteful guitar riffs, walking bass lines, and driving rhythms with straightforward lyrics and soulfully delivered complex harmonies, resulting in a fresh yet classic alternative to today’s often overproduced music.

    Their live show is an engaging, high energy, concert-like experience, filled with rock and soul tunes that will have audiences dancing, singing, and remembering the “event” that is a LANE CHANGE performance!
