The Chocolate Church Arts Center (CCAC) will present a concert with Love By Numb3rs on Oct. 23. The band, whose music spans blues, folk, and rootsy rock, is made up of former members of beloved Maine acts Gypsy Tailwind and Rustic Overtones.
After 15 years of friendship, two albums and over 100 hundred shows in the immensely popular Gypsy Tailwind, Dan Connor and Anna Lombard have reunited, and have joined forces with multi-instrumentalist Jon Roods, a co-founding member of Rustic Overtones.
The band’s story is one of friendship, collaboration, and resilience. In 2012, Gypsy Tailwind broke up in the middle of making its fourth album. Also in that year, Dan Connor was treated for a malignant brain tumor. Through it all, the musicians of Love By Numb3rs have continued to write and collaborate, and have translated life’s challenges into stirring, emotional music.
Love By Numb3r’s debut album “Parachute” was released to critical acclaim in December 2020. Lombard contributes vocals, piano, harmonica, and glockenspiel, and Connor sings and plays guitar and keyboards. It was engineered, mixed, and produced by Roods, who also played drums, bass, guitar, and more on the recordings.
CCAC is requiring all attendees to show proof of vaccination or of a negative COVID test (within 48 hours prior to a performance) at the door. For this show, face coverings are strongly recommended while seated, and required while purchasing concessions and merchandise, or while otherwise interacting with any event personnel.
