  • (1888PressRelease) April 21, 2017 - New York, NY - Music protégé and cutting-edge solo songwriter/singer/pianist Akie Bermiss, who was snagged by popular indie multi-genre band Lake Street Dive to play keyboards and provide backing vocals on the first leg of their 25-city national concert tour which was launched in mid-February, is scheduled to rejoin the band for most of their newly scheduled concert tour dates. The extended tour will be kicked off on May 5th at the internationally acclaimed New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Lake Street Dive has added over 30 new tour dates that will carry through early September in support of their latest CD, "Side Pony."

    Over the past half a dozen years, Bermiss has become a visible contributor to the fertile Brooklyn music scene as a musician, songwriter or featured vocalist with a collective of upstart groups such as; FutureSoul band Aabaraki, the Screaming Headless Torsos, Miri Ben-Ari (the Hip Hop Violinist) and Rap sensa¬tion Soul Khan. He also birthed the Akie Bermiss Trio, independently released his first self-ti¬tled solo EP (via Rockwood Records in 2014) and continues to mine a loyal fan base performing frequently at cutting edge venues like Rockwood Music Hall , The Falcon, BAM Cafe and The Apollo Cafe, among others.

    The Lake Street Dive quartet features lead singer Rachael Price, Mike "McDuck" Olson (trumpet, guitar), Bridget Kearney (acoustic upright bass) and Mike Calabrese (drums). The new leg of their national tour will feature them supporting Jack Johnson on three shows, (July 8, 9, 10), four shows with Amos Lee (July 24-28), and one show with Daryl Hall & John Oates (Sept 1). The tour will also include several dates with special guests appearances by; Sweet Crude, Sarah Jarosz and Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats.

    A full schedule of all the new Lake Street Dive concert engagements through September 1 is listed. All dates noted with an asterisk (*) will feature Akie Bermiss on keyboards.
