Indy blues rockers Goddess Lakshmi cut their teeth for one and a half years with a weekly residence at the rough and tumble Paris Blues in Harlem NYC. They have performed throughout New York City at venues that include; the historic Bitter End, The Mercury Lounge, Pianos, Parkside Lounge, Spike Hill, The Way Station and The Paper Box.
They have produced 4 albums. The most recent, Live at The Harlem Flophouse is currently charting at #37 on the Roots Music Review national listing. Working with TwinVision they are currently in rotation on 200+ terrestrial radio stations. They have interviewed/performed live on WHCR Harlem, WEMF Boston, WTCC Hartford, WLFR Pomona NJ, WXCI Danbury Ct. and Radio X in Frankfurt Germany. Their recent Mayflower Tour began in New York City and took them to; Springfield, Hartford, Becket, Lowell, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC, and Baltimore.
A thinking persons band, their diverse influences include blues, rock, reggae, jazz and German metal. Led by NYC fringe theater veteran René Calvo, the band delivers on tuneful, witty and provocative entertainment that you can dance to.
“The Goddess Lakshmi is a prime example of the thriving jazz and folk sounds that came together during the Harlem Renaissance with nods to the beatnik cool of the early ’60s. Harlem is the birthplace of the band and its honed musical style…”
