There is a bar called The Cavern, situated in Greenwich Village in New York. Then, two French musicians met there by chance, changed the world and decided to form a band, what could be more natural than to take the patronymic of Greenwich Cavern!
Walter Gallay and Eric Revel (bass) share the same passion for the 70’ rock tinged with Blues (Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Free). Of return in France, the duet goes in search of musicians and opts for a formation in 5.
After some rehearsals, Greenwich Cavern records its first album with glam-funky trend, Other Side, and makes more than 40 concerts in 2009 among which the first parts of Scorpions, Ten Years After and Louis Bertignac. Pure Power Tour is a success. However, the group is going to mutate in power-trio and the only one Eric Revel stays in the boat as a captain. François Del Frate, the perfect striker of trunks, joins him as well as Olivier Sosin (guitar, voice, piano) at the beginning of year 2011. On the next two years, Greenwich Cavern takes a new term with so many dates. In September, 2012, the trio brings out a double entitled CD / DVD Dolly and resumes its series of concerts. Paul Personne, Skinny Molly, American Dog, Triggerfinger, Aaron invite them in opening part. The rock of the GC seduces a public numerous, going from the hairy teenager to the oldest hard toothless rocker. Live At The Galaxie in 2013 will be the unstoppable musical testimony of the Dantesque scenic performances of the trio. Rest of Europe is not insensible to the music of Greenwich Cavern. So the band is touring in Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and in the Netherlands. But it is not enough to convince the most sceptical. Bad Reputation who follows them since the beginning suggests to set a little more time in the composition of an album more bluesy and more worked. The trio spends some times in the writing of Monkeys on Mountain. From the first demos, the doubt is not any more allowed: Greenwich Cavern knows how to compose great firebrands. From So Much Love to RockBox including Devil Wrinkle, the tracks are unstoppable. Greenwich knows also how to be aimed also on No Reason and See You.
Do not thus be deaf, blind and dumb persons in Greenwich Cavern. The band from Lorraine ( Let the Party on will say Uriah Heep) is already a part of the best Rock acts of France!
