G.Loves Portland

G.Love and Special Sauce came into the Wieden + Kennedy Portland office on Thursday of last week for the 5th installment of the WK Lunchbox series. 12:30 is pretty early for these guys, but it did not take long for them to clear out the cobwebs and get on to songs about food.Glove_1

After his show in the atrium, G. stuck around to talk to people, sign posters and sling some ad ideas of his own. G. (Garry) started out as a street preformer on the streets of Philly and Boston and wanted to replicate that grit for the setting of a small song he wrote (mostly off the top of his head). So we got his old chair unloaded off the tour bus, found some size 12 Kobe’s and took him up the street a couple of blocks. Glove_2
With J. Lowe from Joint filming, we just let G.Love start slinging it to us right there. Pretty sweet for a cold Thursday morning.

He must have a ton of energy because Later that evening G.Love and Special Sauce played a huge 2 and a half hour set a sold out Crystal ballroom with Matt Costa opening up. A really fun day.
