Grounds and Sounds welcomes the unique sound of indie/blues/pop (with a sprinkle of jazz and folk) band Christine Sweeney & the Dirty Stayouts back to our stage on July 10. Christine has been playing the LI music scene for 10 years, with a voice as powerful as it is sultry and sweet. Her writing style is focused heavily on emotion of the lyrics, but the underlying music structure illustrates that she's no stranger to complexities in harmony, as well. Influences include Joni Mitchell, Regina Spektor, John Mayer, Rilo Kiley, KT Tunstall. The band features Mike Walsh on bass, Dave Ferro on piano/organ, Hugo Lopez on drums, and Samantha Kantor on backing vocals.
