Pop band Hanson is going to perform at the Little Lake Musicfest this summer during the final show of the season on Aug. 25.
The trio of brothers from Oklahoma - Zac, Isaac and Taylor - is best known for the 1997 hit song MMMBop and has sold millions of albums worldwide.
The band’s other hit songs include This Time Around, Strong Enough to Break, Where’s the Love and The Walk.
Hanson has been making music together for nearly two decades.
On their current fifth studio album Shout It Out, released on their independent label 3CG Records, they deliver soulful, melodic tunes known as R&B-flavored pop-rock. The album, produced and written exclusively by the band, includes special guests: Funk Brothers bassist Bob Babbitt, who played on some of Motown’s greatest hits, and horn arranger Jerry Hey, who worked with Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones and Earth, Wind and Fire.
The first single, Thinking ’Bout Somethin’, one of the songs that features brass, offers lyrics about putting a loose lover in her place underscored by a huge chorus.
Kiss Me When You Come Home touches on heartfelt lyrics about the simpler connections that keep a relationship going.
Carry You There harkens back to The Walk, with its message of rising above your troubles.
And I Waited brings in a tougher edge signaling a change in mood from with a four-on-the-floor kick drum and a darker lyrical undertone.
Meanwhile, Little Lake Musicfest is set to start its 26th season of free entertainment in Del Crary Park on June 30.
The outdoor concerts at the Fred Anderson Stage run Wednesday and Saturday evenings.
No other lineup details have been released yet.

I never went to a music festival ... I'd like to have the opportunity to go to one in which Hanson is one of the attractions... =]
