The Lumineers Perform For Fans At Grammy Pre-Party

(Radio.com) Folk-rock five-piece The Lumineers hail from the richly-cultured, mountainous urban landscape of Denver, Colorado, but their music is pure '30s-style dustpan alley, shoe-shuffling Americana fused with catchy, modern alt-rock melodies.

Their style transcends just their sound. At their pre-Grammy performance for AMP Radio and Radio.com at the Grammy Museum, the Best New Grammy-nominated group donned their quintessential retro-rags.

Cellist Neyla Pekarek wore toile tights, cocoa brown oxfords and a vintage-looking locket around her neck. Multifaceted frontman, Wesley Schulz, wore a fedora and a charming rough-and-rugged aura that melted the tension from them coming on an hour late.

The culprit of their tardiness was a broken cello. Schulz called out United Airlines for breaking their cello and thanked the band's crew and staff for getting a cello to them so quickly before the band played a five-song set of favorites like "Flowers In Your Hair," "Ho Hey," "Classy Girl," "Stubborn Love," and "Flapper Girl," which was an audience request.

"How is she playing," he asked Pekarek about her borrowed cello. "She's alright," replied Pekarek in her sweet, shy voice. More including photos
