Greg Lamy Band 13 August 12 pm (noon) Cafe Stritch Stage

Greg Lamy has graced the stage of many clubs and festivals in Europe and New York, among them 55 Bar in Greenwich Village, the Knitting Factory and the Winter Jazz Festival. Often invited to play as a guest in other musical formations, Lamy also dedicates time to his band with drummer Jean-Marc Robin and bassist Gautier Laurent. The Band which was founded in 2007 and is signed with Igloo Records has produced two albums together I See You (2009) and Meeting (2013). Characterized by an alchemical osmosis, the Greg Lamy Band is an accomplished ensemble, inspiring and ambitious, harmonious and pluralistic and always driven by the pleasure of playing together.
