G. Love & Special Sauce on Valentine’s Day!

Check out G. Love & Special Sauce with Matt Costa
at The Pageant on Saturday, February 14th!

Tart, Tangy, Smooth, and oh so lip-smacking Sweet! Aaah yes, time to praise the almighty summer sippin’ thirst quencher, being served straight up G. Love and Special Sauce style, ice cool and always refreshing. On their second release for Brushfire Records, the Philly boys offer up “Lemonade”, a series of soul drenched tracks pouring out their blues infused hip-hop, which people have been trying to label for years. The best advice – dont try to tame it or claim it; its simply their sonic trademark, instantly recognizable and addictively delicious.
