Back to the music — what can people expect when they go to a G. Love & Special Sauce concert?

It's a trio. Myself on harmonica and guitar, Clemens on drums, and Timo Shanko on upright and electric bass. We have a set list. I feel like we're at our best when we have a map to follow, as we do get kind of lost up there. So we've got some songs to get us started, but I like to have the music lead and for the band to follow. That way, you play the room. The major accomplishment of a show is to connect with the crowd and really feel truly inspired onstage.

I think what people like the most is when they get to see something unexpected, whether that's improvisational solos or freestyle lyrics or different arrangements of some songs they know or covers they're not expecting. We try to keep challenging ourselves and really put the work in.

G. Love: "We try to keep challenging ourselves."

On the flipside, as a performer, what do you hope audiences get from your music?

We hope they feel they're somewhere between a crazy keg party amongst friends and a church revival. Have fun, be inspired by the music, and get shaken down a bit. Ultimately, I just want to show people a good time. If I can do that and everybody's smiling out there, hooting and hollering, then we're on the right track.
