Band/Artist Name & Pronunciation: Loi Loi (Loy-loy)

Recommended if you like: Portishead, US Girls, Dee-Lite

Story behind your band/artist name: Loi Loi is my Cantonese surname. The character for “Loi/lu” is one smaller box on top of a larger box. In Chinese, a box is a measure word for a person. When I started the band, there were four people and so it made the case for naming the band after...me!

Band Members: Ron (bass, trumpet), Kristie (synths, drum machine, keys)

What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC :Northeast DC

At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: - Ron used to be in DC legendary band Lightfoot
- Kristie speaks Chinese and Spanish and has been on tour on three continents with Loi Loi
- Kristie and Ron have day jobs in international affairs but are exercise nuts (Kristie teaches barre at the Dailey Method; Ron hikes every weekend)

Anything else we should know, or you want to share: Our next album comes out on 11/10! We are opening for fellow synthpop warrior Bright Light Bright Light, who is on tour right now with Erasure.
