Touring with her backing band called The Siss Boom Bang, k.d. Lang will play two intimate shows at the Corona Theatre. The shows will be the opportunity to hear them play live in full the songs from their album, Sing It Loud. For fans of k.d.’s entire career, fear not, as they will also play songs from k.d.’s extensive catalogue. Should be fun as it is the first time that k.d. has toured with a band in over 20 years.
The Siss Boom Bang is comprised of Lex Price (Dolly Parton, Taylor Swift), Josh Grange (Adam Cohen, Dwight Yoakam), Jerry Roe (Michelle Branch, Gretchen Wilson), Daniel Clarke (Dixie Chicks, Mandy Moore), and Joe Pisapia (Guster). As you can see each of these multi intstrumentalists has played with big acts previously. k.d. Lang is one of the most talented singers that Canada has ever produced. She has been recording music for the past 25 years.
Lang’s collaboration with The Siss Boom Bang signaled her return to her country roots. Some of the songs are sophisticated country while others will transform the venue into a hoedown.
