LANco is stopping by The Varsity Theater in Dinkytown on Sunday, January 13th as part of their Hallelujah Nights tour.
Who is LANco? LANco is the people you know and the life you live, reimagined. LANco is the familiar, couched in the extraordinary. LANco is a connection to community built by the bonds of music. They are five best friends making music and working to create something bigger while grinding it out on the road to build an identity. Through this, they became Lancaster & Company, now known as LANco. Everyone touched by their music becomes part of the Company. The band is nothing without the Company. The musical mission statement: every day in every way, throw one hell of a Company party.
Together, LANco is Brandon Lancaster (lead vocals), Chandler Baldwin (bass), Jared Hampton (keyboards, banjo), Tripp Howell (drums), and Eric Steedly (lead guitar).
Formed in 2012, LANco was born of a chance meeting between Howell and Nashville native Lancaster – each performing in bands at the same festival – just as Howell was readying a move to Music City the same week that Lancaster was returning from college. Once in Nashville, Lancaster met Steedly through mutual friends, while Hampton and Baldwin followed shortly thereafter, with the young band gigging at every opportunity.
“I want people to not just hear the music, but be a part of the music. All the songs that we’re playing and singing, they’re really talking about people’s lives, and they’re talking about situations that every person’s familiar with, and we’re doing it with a lot of energy and a lot of crowd participation. I always go out in the crowd and sing, and we’re very interactive.
“We are LANco, and so are you.”
Caylee Hammack will be kicking the night off right.
