Recently named the #1 band to follow in 2014 by Come To Woodstock magazine, Lara Hope and the Ark-Tones are The Hudson Valley, NY’s premier Rockabilly, Rhythm & Blues, and Rock n Roll band. With the recent release of their fully crowd-funded debut album, “Luck Maker”, a music video for their single “Whiskey Pick” and a relentless performance schedule, 2014 has proven to be a big year for the Ark-Tones!
Born from a hybrid of Lara’s former Rockabilly band The Champtones, and upright bassist Matt’s international Psychobilly act The Arkhams, Lara Hope and the Ark-Tones hit the ground running in 2012 with the addition of Chris Heitzman on guitar and Dave Tetreault on drums. This fun-loving bunch packs the dance floor with their own original musical offerings in the vintage style as well as re-workings of Rockabilly and Rhythm and Blues classics and standards. This “travelin’ band” is out there pleasing listeners of all ages and walks of life…wherever they roam.
