Carmageddon: Traveling band gives impromptu concert above 405
The LTG Brothers, a reggae and bluegrass band from Bellingham, Wash., were passing through the Mulholland Drive bridge detour Saturday afternoon when they spotted a crowd of journalists and onlookers watching the demolition work.
On a whim, the three band members pulled over at the public viewing area on Skirball Center Drive, unloaded their violin, guitar and bongo drums, and started to play. And for about 30 minutes, the crowd danced.
"It was all in the timing," said Dave Moore, who accompanied the band. "We just stopped and saw the crowd and started playing."
