The tour kicks off on January 25 in Las Vegas, followed by a three show run with special guest Charlie Hitchcock sitting in. Hitchcock, formerly of Particle, will join Green Lemon in Los Angeles, San Diego and in Tucson, AZ for the Tucson Gem & Jam Show. The tour will then sweep through the ski resort towns of Colorado including a joint show in Breckenridge with Blu Sirkut. Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi will all be juiced as the band heads to their strongholds in the southeast before turning north towards the upper Midwest.
Green Lemon blends progressive rock, reggae, electronica and on-the-spot jam improvisation to create the unique sound that is attracting an exploding fan base across the nation. The band members draw inspiration from a wide variety of musical genres. While guitarist Steve Schaben studied jazz in college, his fellow guitarist, Wayne Allen, prefers the sound of Irish rockers U2. Keyboardist Jon Cordero and bassist Jesse Fioravanti listen to indie rock, but drummer Chris Cox enjoys reggae and Maroon 5. Add four songwriters within the group to this diversity of musical tastes and you’ve got a recipe for auditory bliss. By merging pumping electronica beats with smooth reggae melodies, soaring vocals and some shredding guitar solos, Green Lemon inspired Relix magazine to declare that they “could very well lead the next generation of jambands.”
