Hot, tight, and sassy, Mama Lenny and the Remedy recalls the tradition of the sexy, soulful songbird backed by a band that looks as good as it sounds. Fronted by the startling vocal and emotional power of Laniece Schleicher, they deliver a high-energy, bold fusion of soul, funk, rock, blues, and disco with shrewd hints of jazz, gospel, and Broadway. With infectious energy, the band delves into the joys and downfalls of love and life, and the sensual pleasures and saucy self-possession that sustain us through it−always with a wink of humor and a witty turn of phrase.
The band is an impeccable synergy of driving rhythms, astute instrumentation, and compelling harmonies that Scene Magazine calls “unstoppable collaborative chemistry.” It is composed of some of Northern Colorado’s musical all-stars; Crip Erickson (drums) and Ben Prytherch (bass) deliver a broad rhythmic vocabulary, from smooth and groovy to hot and hell-bent. Greta Cornett (trumpet), Thalia Stevenson (keyboard), Kenneth Monks (guitar), and Kelly Keeler (backing vocals) add cunning punch and texture, creating a rich, bold sound that often verges on the experimental.
Since their start in 2011, Mama Lenny and the Remedy have played some of the most celebrated venues in Northern Colorado and Wyoming. They have opened for internationally renowned acts Alison Kraus and the Union Station, The California Honeydrops, JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound, and the English Beat, and are widely recognized as one of Colorado’s breakout bands.
