Performer Info

G. Love and Special Sauce: During the early 90s, a Philadelphia band called G. Love & Special Sauce combined east coast blues and R&B with the laid back attitude of the west coast, adding just little bit of hip hop, to create a totally unique sound. The sound brought them critical acclaim as well as tour dates full of supportive and appreciative fans. G. Love and Special Sauce's 1999 album, Philadelphonic, brought them into the mainstream and the band has been working diligently to keep their fans happy ever since. Part of that includes the abundant 2011 tour dates around the world that the band has in store for this summer and fall.

Guitarist, harmonicist, and lead singer Garrett Dutton (aka G. Love) and drummer Jeffrey Clemens formed G. Love and Special Sauce in 1993. The next year, they released their eponymous debut album, which featured the hit single "Cold Beverage." The album's success led to nearly a year of performing tour dates that showcased G. Love and Special Sauce's lazy musical style. The group's next hit came in 1999 with the release of Philadelphonic, which reached #1 on the Heatseekers chart and featured special guest Jack Johnson. By the release of 2008's Superhero Brother, G. Love and Special Sauce were incorporating musical styles beyond just blues and R&B, including soul and classic rock.

G. Love and Special Sauce's 2011 album, Fixin' To Die, was produced by The Avett Brothers has combined the band's signature blues sound with a winning folk style. This new musical direction can be heard on the group's 2011 tour dates, including stops in Japan, the US, UK, Western Europe, and a Rombello Cruise to Cozumel, Mexico. For all the details on G. Love and Special Sauce's tour dates in 2011, use Eventful.
