On March 30, the Burgh welcomes NYC’s revered disco orchestra, Escort, alongside the likes of New Jersey natives, Lyndsey Smith & Soul Distribution.

Last fall, Escort dropped their highly anticipated sophomore record, “Animal Nature,” which features elements from the nation’s most solid club music meccas–i.e. Chicago, New York and Detroit.

Fronted by founders/producers, Gene Cho and Dan Balis, and vocalist Adeline Michele, the mindbending compilation blends elements of old school disco, new school production, and authentic songwriting, sprinkled with a pinch of funk and soul.

Escort will be joined by opening act Lyndsey Smith & Soul Distribution, who’ll be bringing their own signature sounds to the party.

The sultry R&B outfit has been feeding the souls of music lovers far and wide for nearly half a decade, making their mark on both the PGH underground scene, and on a national level.
