Baby & The Luvies @ The Fenix, San Rafael 5/17/19
Formed in 2011, San Francisco-based Baby & The Luvies is an original high-energy soul-inspired dance band. The 8-piece group has been blowing the minds of bay-area club goers with their energetic dance-friendly stage shows driven by strong female vocals and high-impact horn arrangements that Death and Taxes Magazine says, “smacks of an early Ike and Tina.” Baby & The Luvies has performed sold out shows throughout the Bay Area supporting national touring acts including Fantastic Negrito, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, The Peach Kings, Con Brio, Beat Mosaic, Gene Washington and the Ironsides, Hotel Eden and Matt Jaffe &The Distractions. An all-original group echoing the sounds of retro good times.
Baby & The Luvies have been on the San Francisco music scene since 2011 sharing their brand of original ‘60’s inspired soul with dance minded audiences. Since winning the 2013 Haight Street Battle of the Bands the Luvies have shared the stage with numerous touring acts including 2x Grammy Winner Fantastic Negrito, Sister Sparrow and the Dirtybirds and Con Brio at some of the Bay Area’s hippest venues such as Great American Music Hall, Slim’s and the Chapel.
“Think Sharon Jones and Fitz and the Tantrums… but local!
“Any tune that has a title like “Beginner Scorpion” and the word “germicidal” in the lyrics separates Baby & the Luvies from the pack of “woke up this morning” soul groups, making them fun and charmingly offbeat.”- Marin Independent Journal – Paul Liberatore Bay Area Rock Critic
