Lotus: Crofoot Pontiac
Last night's show at the Crofoot Ballroom in Pontiac
the crowd filled in with early 20-something dreadlocked hippie kids, and a few early-30s concert going veterans such as yours truly, the band moved between more funky dance tunes and hiphop inspired riffs and rhymes.
Comprised of 2 percussionists, a keyboard/guitar player, bassist, and lead guitar, Lotus definitely packs a wallop. In no time the whole room was moving with arms flailing about in time with the music. For those unacquainted with the 'jamtronica' genre of music, the idea is to create tunes played by live musicians that are similar to music put out by turntable spinning DJs. Lotus combines rock riffs with dance tunes, all the while keeping the audience dancing and gyrating to the beats. The array of effects pedals and digital equipment that these guys have at their disposal is by no means small.
