Love at Art Basel

In the beginning, Philadelphia native Garrett "G. Love" Dutton -- hitting the national music scene like a fourth Beastie Boy crossed with splashes of Beck and Bob Dylan -- created the song "Cold Beverage" with his two-man backing band, Special Sauce. The year was 1994, the shambling song came from the trio's self-titled debut, and it slowly became a radio and MTV hit, fusing hip-hop to vintage blues, jazz, and funk. That was the peak of his commercial success, but he's actually grown his fan base since as a must-see live act who consistently packs venues.
