Soulful siblings Lawrence sell out the Bowery Ballroom two nights in a row

Selling out the Bowery Ballroom is already awesome, but to do it two nights in a row must have felt absolutely incredible for the New York City local band Lawrence. Friday night’s performance was supported by Caleb Hawley and Huntertones, who both performed high energy sets that very much showed off their musical prowess. Caleb an amazing singer and guitarist and Huntertones all massively talented on several instruments each!

Since Halloween is right around the corner, obviously a costume theme was in order, and that theme was Disney. Caleb Hawley and his band came out donning animal masks as they were from The Lion King, Huntertones were Toy Story characters, and Lawrence made their appearance as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves! Clyde and Gracie Lawrence made a surprise appearance during Huntertones to sing along to their cover of “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” which was more than a pleasant surprise to the massive and eager crowd. I was standing next to a particularly vocal group of individuals who appeared to be big fans of the duo as they were frequently yelling to the duo about how highly they thought of them.

The room erupted when Lawrence finally took the stage and hopped right into their first song. They played a healthy mix of both old and new material, including a few songs they’ve never played for an audience before. A few songs in, Clyde announces they will be doing a cover of one their favorite artists, lo and behold, the artist they were covering had actually been on stage with them for several minutes, hiding behind a monster mask, none other than Allen Stone. He comes forward and Lawrence supports him and sings along. Allen Stone made several more appearances along with varying members of Huntertones during their set which gave their whole performance a feeling more like a bunch of friends getting together to jam and have a great time than a concert.

Clyde and Gracie are power-siblings both with deep running backgrounds in composing music and talents that could not be more perfectly paired. It is not at all surprising that this soul-pop band they’ve created has made this sort of impact on their listeners and fans.

I don’t think I’ve seen a band have as much fun on stage as Lawrence. With each member smiling and dancing and being completely in sync with the music they were creating, Lawrence has already made a massive impression on New York City, it won’t be long until it’s the rest of the country.
