Winner of the 2017 Ameripolitan Music Award for Best Rockabilly Female, and named the “Best Up-and-Coming Band” by Hudson Valley Magazine, Lara Hope and the Ark-Tones are New York’s premier rockabilly, roots rock n’ roll, rhythm & blues outfit.
Born from a hybrid of Lara’s former Rockabilly band The Champtones, and upright bassist Matt’s international Psychobilly act The Arkhams, The Ark-Tones hit the ground running in 2012, and they haven’t slowed down since. This fun-loving bunch packs the dance floor with their own original musical offerings in the vintage style, as well as re-workings of classics and standards. This “travelin’ band” is out there pleasing listeners of all ages and walks of life… wherever they roam. Their second full length album, Love You To Life, is out May 2017.
“The #1 Ulster County Band to follow in 2014” –Come To Woodstock Magazine
“Best Up-and-Coming Band of 2015! –Hudson Valley Magazine
“Both nostalgic and dancehall pounding!” –Rick Meek, Blue Suede News
“Some retro acts reference old styles with a postmodern wink; others inhabit them as if the last 50 years had failed to transpire. Lara Hope and the Ark-Tones somehow manage to do both.” –John Burdick, Hudson Valley Almanac (Nov 30, 2014)
