Country Newcomers, LANco, Bring The Energy To Irving Plaza


Opening for CMA Vocal Duo of the Year, Brothers Osborne, country newcomers, LANco, took the stage Friday Night at Irving Plaza for their first-ever, full band performance show in NYC.  The high-energy group consists of five small town natives – singer-lyricist, Brandon Lancaster, bassist Chandler Baldwin, multi-instrumentalist Jared Hampton, drummer Tripp Howell and guitarist Eric Steedly.

After catching LANco this past summer at Nash FM’s, Up Close & Country Series, we knew we were in for a treat. The guys give off an old-school rock-like vibe, mixed with a pop-friendly feel, and when you add that Country twang – you’ve got a truly incredible and unique sound.

There is something for everybody in LANco’s performance. Playing tracks from their self-titled EP, including crowd favorites, “Trouble Maker,” and “American Love Story,” along with covers like, “Your Mama Don’t Dance,” the group delivered with each and every song.


Seeing the faces from the stage just wasn’t enough for lead singer, Brandon Lancaster. To end the show, Lancaster jumped into the crowd walking all the way to the opposite end of the venue and back, getting an up-close visual of each and every member of the sold-out crowd. Closing out their set with their debut single, “Long Live Tonight“, LANco’s infectious energy surely set the tone for an unforgettable night.

If you aren’t listening to LANco yet, you need to. Take a listen here & be sure to catch the guys at a show near you!
