Although they are from the small rural town of Accident in western Maryland, The Lake Effect (TLE) has managed to play extensively in the Baltimore/Washington DC region for the past three years — and have been met with great success. Being one of Baltimore’s most popular college bands and playing some of Baltimore’s premiere venues, including Ram’s Head Live, The Recher Theater, and the 8x10 Club, The Lake Effect has consistently held ticket sales around and above 200 per show. Michael Nayt of blogtalkradio has described TLE’s songwriting structures as sophisticated and comparable to artists coming out of Berkeley School of Music. The Lake Effect promises to deliver an entertaining rock show every time, connecting with audiences through strong choruses and passionate performance. The sounds of Led Zeppelin, Weezer, Coldplay, and the Foo Fighters have influenced TLE from the start, shining through subtlety but effectively.
The Lake Effect consists of twin guitarists and vocalists Elliot and Darryl Glotfelty, older brother Rob Glotfelty on bass, and good friend, David Valenta on drums. The chemistry in the group is evident, especially amongst the brothers who have been playing together for nearly nine years. After releasing their debut album in mid 2010, The Lake Effect is bound for a great future in the music industry. With politically charged songs such as “Stargazer” and love songs such as “You and Me” and the violin driven “The Places You Want to Go,” TLE presents music that is extremely accessible— you might just find yourself humming these tunes after one listen.
