Nancy Atlas and her band of Journeymen have been dominating the East End Music scene on Long Island for many years. Known for her raw, live performances and stellar songwriting Nancy and her band, The Nancy Atlas Project, have opened for almost everyone under the sun. To name a few: Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams, Toots and the Maytals, Jimmy Buffett, Crosby, Stills and Nash... the list goes on and on. The reason is simple. When people want a solid act to open their show and get the crowd warmed up, they call Nancy and her boys because they know they will deliver. Every time.

“We wanted to offer this popular series again in 2015,” says Gary Hygom, Producer at Bay Street Theatre. “They are a perfect way to keep warm on a Friday night and just have a good time with the music. Everyone who came last year is eagerly waiting for this year. Everyone should come out and have some fun this winter!”
Nancy grew up with gypsy blood in Commack, NY. She spent her entire college years abroad at both Cambridge University in England and Richmond College in London and Florence. There was a serious recession going on the year she graduated college so instead of becoming an advertising executive she walked down to Portabello Road, London, bought a guitar for 60 quid and never looked back.
Nancy now lives in Montauk, New York with her husband Thomas and her two sons Cash and Levon and her daughter Tallulah. When she is not writing a song or on stage rocking out, she can be found spending time with her family enjoying the outdoors.
