Angela Lapetina Presents Joe Symes and the Loving Kind

Joe Symes, along with Colin White, founded the band. While attending a local gig, the latter suggested to the former the name the “Loving Kind:” something that had been buried in his subconscious after listening to the R.E.M song Get Up. After a sip or two of beer, the two agreed, and set to work, adding bass player Alan Welsh. The music world now had a powerful, explosive, and foot-tapping power trio on their hands. An act one spectator described as “sounding like nine people on stage, not a mere three.” Learn more about JOE SYMES AND THE LOVING KIND at
