What to Expect
We are the newest project from classically-trained, powerhouse vocalist, Genesis Lorraine, and seasoned Central-PA musicians Jay Kirssin (Bass) and Bill Wasch (Lead Guitar). The rhythm section is accompanied by Lancaster-based Tom Lowry (keys), former marketing specialist for the Hershey Company 'Toad' Carfagno (drums), and a sharp-edged horn section (saxophone, trumpet, trombone). We play Woodstock-tinged dance music with influences from the 60's forward (minus most of the 80's). We intermix our classic psychedelic rock/funk with our spicy originals which you can sample here or by visiting (link hidden)!
In addition to music of astonishing quality, and thousands of shows worth of experience, GL8TM boasts a professor of audio engineering as well as a former marketing specialist for the Hershey Company. In short, we have our own gear, and know how to use it! Your patrons will stay and ours will come (if they're invited), and a merry (prankster) time shall be had by all. The 8-piece band is a force to be reckoned with both as a musical entity and as a business partner. We are looking forward to partnering with you!
My name is Genesis Lorraine and, with my 8-piece original (and classic) monster band, I am gearing up come at ya with super-smooth, straight-up groove. After completing my training as a classical singer, I ached for an outlet for my creative vision and fierce business planning. After acquiring the partnership of seasoned players, I decided it was time to start a band. So, we added a sharp-edged 3-piece horn section and some sultry, bluesy keys. We named the band 'Her 8-Track Mind' both because of our authentic sources of inspiration. In October of 2016, we released our first full-length, self-titled, original album which features Woodstock-inspired sounds with a little funk mixed in. Although between them, our old guys easily have a few thousand shows under their belts, the youth in the group bring a splash of playful naivete to our stage show. We're ready for you, are you ready for us?
