An Extra Helping of the Blue Plate Special : Lara Hope & The Ark-Tones “Luckiest Girl In Town”

From Kingston, NY, “Rockabilly, Roots Rock n’ Roll, Rhythm & Blues Outfit” Lara Hope and the Ark-Tones visited the Blue Plate Special stage. They were named the “Best Up-And-Coming band in 2015” by Hudson Valley Magazine, and nominated for “Best Rockabilly Female” at the 2016 Ameripolitan Music Awards. “Luck Maker”, the band’s first album, is in regular rotation here at WDVX, and we were excited to hear that Lara Hope and the Ark-Tones are headed back into the studio this December. The Ark-Tones get their name from the combination of Lara’s former Rockabilly band The Champtones, and upright bassist Matt’s international Psychobilly act The Arkhams. The band names are not the only merging going on, as Lara and Matt got married about a year ago. That leads us to the tune in this video, “Luckiest Girl In The World”, which was a wedding gift from Lara to Matt! Find out lots more about Lara Hope and the Ark-Tones on their website at:
