Born in Port Antonio, Jamaica Courtney started his musical career playing keyboard in a gospel band at age 12. He picked up the bass at age 16 and by age 19 went to play on cruise ships for the next 7 years. After moving to Chicago, he joined Indika band in 1997.
Under his leadership Indika has performed extensively throughout the midwest and has backed an array of top reggae acts including Gregory Isaacs, Everton Blender, Frankie Paul, Ritchie Spice, Richie Stevens, Christopher Martin, Luciano, and Gramps Morgan just to name a few.
Chicago-based Brazilian drummer and percussionist Luiz Ewerling has founded AMADA – a band that divines a unique blending of Brazilian and American musical styles, ranging from Brazilian Pop to Rock, from Samba to Swing, from the free flowing pulse of the Partido Alto to contemporary jazz. With Ana Munteanu’s soulful, sparkling vocals, Luciano Antonio’s brilliant guitar artistry and warm voice, Geoffrey Lowe and Luiz Ewerling’s sonorous bass and eclectic rhythms, AMADA is about groove, harmony and music euphoria that moves one’s heart.
This free, all ages concert is presented as part of Live on the Lake!, Navy Pier’s free summer music series in the Miller Lite Beer Garden.
