The Crooked Vines

Based out of New Orleans, Louisiana, The Crooked Vines is a funk-pop collective that combines jazz and rock influences with brass instrumentation, soulful vocals and a driving rhythm section. Steven Schwartz (Keys and Tenor Sax), Lori LaPatka (Alto Sax), and Woody Hill (Drums and Percussion) first met while studying music at Loyola University New Orleans. These three formed the first incarnation of the group in 2012, looking to apply their professional musicianship to a new project. Over the next two years they were joined by members Nick Carlisi (Guitar), Sam Fruend (Bass), James Keene (Trombone), and Mikayla Braun (Vocals). The group released their first album on October 10th, 2015, self-titled The Crooked Vines (available on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, BandCamp, and other major platforms). You can currently find the group playing around the New Orleans music scene at such venues as The Howlin’ Wolf, Tipitinas, The Maison, Balcony Music Club, The Dragons Den, Prytania Bar, Verret's Lounge, and many others. They have opened for Rebirth Brass Band, Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes, and Captain Green.
