G. Love and the Special Sauce play loose and sloppy hip-hop-twisted blues, influenced by everyone from Jimmy Reed to Bob Dylan to De La Soul. The band has been at it since 1996, and have carved out a nice little niche for themselves among crowds that love to dance. They'll return to Connecticut Wednesday night for a show at the Ridgefield Playhouse with Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad opening.
