Join us for GreggFest 2016, this year on Friday, May 6th and Saturday, May 7th. Held in honor and memory of former Music Business and Industry Student, Jake Gregg, GreggFest raises money for the memorial endowment created in his name. Jake was a talented musician and songwriter, and his band Suncooked was a staple in the Lyndon community for several years. His promising music career was cut short by his two-year battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Sadly, Jake passed away in April of 2015, and his legacy is now carried on through the spirit of music at each year’s GreggFest. We invite you to enjoy the talented lineup that we are pleased to bring to the Northeast Kingdom this May.
GreggFest 2016 will be featuring some of the most popular local and regional talent. On Friday, May 6th, the bill will include acts such as the high-energy, improvisational funk group, Elephant, local favorites, The Mangroves, and everyone’s favorite rock and roll band, Gang of Thieves. On Saturday, May 7th, local favorites The Bonnets and The Atlantic Effect will take the stage, as well as New Hampshire’s own Funk-Hop band Harsh Armadillo, and one of the newest and hottest pop bands in Burlington, Madaila. Join us for this great cause, and a fun afternoon and evening filled with some of the regions best music.
Location: Lyndon State College Skate Park Amphitheater, Lower Campus Road, Lyndonville, VT
