Lavender Social Club is a Connecticut-based band playing a melting pot of various genres. Frontman Chris Daly’s uncanny talent for showmanship combined with the musical proficiency of the band allows them to perform their unique stylings of pop, alternative/indie, jazz, rock, and hip-hop. Their vision is one shared with all artists: to express. The combination of expression, interaction, entertainment, and improvisation makes performances genre-bending, charismatic, and memorable.
Chris Daly is our fearless frontman. He captivates the audience effortlessly through his electric stage presence and powerful voice. In the summer of 2018 Daly participated in the Berklee Singer-Songwriter Showcase at the Berklee Performance Center. Daly writes and arranges the majority of the music.
Chris Arnone is our lead guitarist, and contributes a very personable quality to the group. He is relaxed in his demeanor yet always searching within for the sounds of his inner landscape, which especially shows in his improvised solos. Arnone studies with guitarist Chris Morrison at Western CT State University.
Malin Carta is our driven saxophonist, and recently graduated from Western CT State University with her BM in Jazz Performance. During her time at WCSU, she studied under the direction of saxophonist Jimmy Greene. Carta's creativity and adaptability shines through to bring everyone together.
TJ Croke, our bassist, graduated from WCSU in 2020 with a BM in Audio Production. Also known as Comfy Cozy, he has played with many different groups including Donnie Alexzander, Glamdoll, and Turtle Dad. His audio expertise combined with his creative artistic visions and grounding bass lines contribute immensely to the band.
Conor Brennan is our drummer, and his focused attitude and sensible approach to his instrument gives the rest of the band a solid foundation to explore and take risks. He currently studies Jazz Drum Performance at WCSU with drummer Jeff Siegel.
