Eclectic Boston faves Lake Street Dive played a stellar, high-energy set on the XPoNential Music Festival River Stage on Sunday Afternoon. Easily crowd favorites of the weekend, the band was led by the dynamic frontwoman Rachael Price, who sang, danced and simply exuded enthusiasm while delivering jazzy pop songs with soulful vocals.

Price harmonized wonderfully with drummer Mike Calabrese and guitarist Mike “McDuck” Olson, while upright bassist Bridget Kearney’s nuanced soloing was an understated strength of the band. But while the material from their 2014 record Bad Self Portraits was engaging enough on its own, the energetic high point was a cover of “Rich Girl” by Hall & Oates that turned into a full-crowd singalong at maximum volume. The good vibes were unreal; check out a photo gallery and read the setlist below.
