Shylock free concert

French progressive rock band Shylock who returned this year after a 34 year absence will perform a free, one off show at the Médiathèque De Mouans-Sartoux on Thursday 31st January 2013.

Shylock posterFormed in July 1974 and dissolved in October 1979, Shylock was a Nice-based progressive rock group. Consisting of founding members Frédéric L’Épée on guitars, Didier Lustig on keyboards and André Fisichella on drums plus Laurent James on bass, Shylock was one of the rare French prog bands to sign with a major label, CBS. Two albums were released, Gialorgues in 1976 and Ile de Fièvre in 1978. They are an essential part of the legacy of 1970s world progressive rock.

Shylock enjoyed some success before splitting up, and its members have continued in music until, 34 years later, deciding to reactivate their illustrious alliance. Over the past months they have performed both in France and abroad, and have plans for further concerts in countries like Japan and Sweden.

This special performance by Shylock in Mouans-Sartoux is a production by the local public multimedia library. Tickets are FREE while supplies last ! Médiathèque de Mouans-Sartoux 201 avenue de Cannes 06370 Mouans-Sartoux. E-mail contact: philippe.gamba@mouans-sartoux.net
