Her four bands, Tiger Piss, The Gold Hope Duo, Lara Hope & The Ark-Tones and Lara Hope and the Champtones are beginning to receive a lot of attention.
This fun-loving bunch packs the dance floor with reworkings of rockabilly and rhythm and blues classics and standards as well as their own original musical offerings, sure to please listeners of all ages and walks of life.
Tiger Piss since forming in 2007, Kingston, NY’s they have become an exemplary band to hold up for those seeking fun sing-a-long rock n’ roll that still matters.
Sure, I had a band since college, but it took a while for me to start to take the whole thing more seriously.
“The whole thing” meaning my music, myself, my life…never take anything TOO seriously!
Twenty-something Lara Hope, a 2006 SUNY New Paltz graduate with a Bachelors in communications and media, now a Rosendale resident, is constantly on the move.
Of all the things she does, perhaps it is her day job that is the least interesting.
For one SUNY New Paltz alumni, busyness is an afterthought.
Lara Hope is more concerned with entertaining, while also helping people along the way.
The smell is a little husky, there’s a sticky, fruity aroma of apple juice with light grains against a little husk and dry bread with a hint of corn . Very refreshing, a good beer to drink at a tropical beach or with spicy food. Most people are busy working a few jobs in the current economic climate.
This is especially true for recently graduated college students.
It’s a long list of responsibilities, but as Hope puts it, “I don’t like to be bored.” One other thing that she does is probably the most important, and meaningful.
