Drummond making tour stop at Layback

Greg Drummond fresh off Peak Performance Project at Khatsahlano Fest

A musician who is making waves in the music scene will be coming to the beach at the end of this month.

Greg Drummond and his band will perform at the Layback Lounge on Friday, July 26, fresh off finding out he’s been chosen to participate in the Peak Performance Project 2013.

“This is a huge career building step for new artists that has been put together by 102.7 The Peak and Music BC,” Drummond announced on his website recently. “The Project includes performing at the Khatsahlano Fest July 13, a music boot-camp, live showcases and some amazing funding to help artists reach their career goals.”

While most local music lovers will be too busy drinking up the offerings of the festival right in our own backyard this weekend, Drummond is looking forward to visiting the area for his performance at Layback.

It’s part of their All Through the Night Summer Tour, which includes stops in Burnaby, Kelowna and Salmon Arm for the Port Moody based musician.

His band includes Michael Lothian, Alanna Pearce, Mike Meroniuk, and Marshall Hunt. Together, he says, they have conquered a variety of concert halls from private shows to the infamous Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver.

They’ve recently been recognized for the tune Walking Man.
