About Eric St-Laurent at the PEC Jazz Festival

Eric got his start as a session guitarist with producers Rick Haworth and Marc Pérusse in Montreal, recording albums for Quebec pop and rock artists while playing jazz at night. Through a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts, he later studied improvisation in New York with Wayne Krantz and Adam Rogers for two years, following which he worked as a freelance musician and radio jingle writer in Berlin for a decade.

Notable collaborations: Slide Hampton, Dave Liebman, Till Broenner, David Binney, Jojo Mayer, Carlos Del Junco, Larnell Lewis, David Clayton Thomas, Richard Underhill and many more.

Eric's current band features Chendy Leon, Magdelys Savigne on percussion and Calvin Beale on bass. Their first album, 'DARN, THAT BAND!' was released in June of 2023.

"Eric St-Laurent and his group have to be seen to be believed. One of the most unique, kickass bands in the country!"
