If you have yet to see a Live Society show, head to Lazy Lounge tonight. This local favorite is not just a bar band—they’re a group of genuine artists who have an original sound. As winners of Bodog’s $1 million Battle of the Bands, they will have you dancing all night long with their eclectic R&B tunes (and stalking their MySpace page to see when they’re coming back to Westchester).

With the success of Broadway’s Mamma Mia and the impending release of the movie version, tonight’s Arrival show at the Tarrytown Music Hall couldn’t have better timing.

They’ll be performing favorites such as “Dancing Queen,” “Knowing Me, Knowing You,” and “Gimme, Gimme, Gimme.”
