Victoria Ginty and Ladyhawke’s style fuses swampy Blues, R&B, Soul, and Americana. They perform a number of original compositions and covers that are sure to please the palette of the most avid of music connoisseurs. Ginty said, “The band is composed of great musicians. One of the things I work at in choosing and writing our music is that I like to keep as much of it as possible, very danceable.”
