Grest is a five-piece classic rock and folk cover-band. A chance encounter at a music store first brought together this diverse group of individuals who share a passion for music but not much else: the electrical engineer and lead guitarist Joe Adler who grew up on the Greenwich Village folk scene and bluegrass and likes to pull out his guitar whenever he gets the chance; the property manager and bassist Mike Havas who is a fan of blues and classic rock and plied his trade in Greenwich Village clubs as a youth; the character actor and lead vocalist Stephen Mendel who digs folk music and was a busker and bar-singer in Montreal as a teenager; the fire captain and rhythm guitarist Tony O’Hagan who loves the blues but first played trumpet in a local big band, and the philosophy professor and drummer Alan Vincelette who prefers prog rock and formally studied jazz, orchestral, and rock drumming in college. Somehow this collection of oddities clicks and loves to make music together and to share it with an audience.
