Lovewhip is a dance band that jams! Frontwoman “Empress” Erin Harpe has been called a “soulful electro-rock diva” by the Boston Phoenix, and “a freakin’ goddess guitar wizard master” by fellow bandleading diva Liz Bills. Playing a party-starting mix of dance rock, psychedelic funk, reggae, and electro-pop, the Boston Music Award-winning band whips up high-energy, groove-inducing originals and unexpected cover twists – for those who love shaking that booty on the dancefloor! The trio features “Juicy” Jim Countryman’s deep reggae/afrobeat/dub bass, and drummer Shawn “Shawny Hammersticks” Meehan’s infectious rhythms, dance beats and electronics.
