Why go? Two Orlando bands unite for this free Hub show. Day Joy features sweetly-sighing vocalist/instrumentalist Michael Serrin, bassist Artie Burer and guitarist Travis Reed taking up roles in both building a dreamy folk pop vibe with banjo and ukulele in Day Joy, while taking a more rootsy grooving route in Loud Valley. The haunting echoey pastoral-surf quality of the latter’s sound marked by dynamic percussive textures, a touch of brass and bright multi-voice harmonies.
