Lou Gramm

Lou Gramm, one of the greatest singers in rock music, will be the main stage headliner at this year's Milford Oyster Festival on August 19, 2023.

Lou Gramm is one of the founding members of Foreigner and is known for his unique vocals. Foreigner had 16 Billboard Top 40 Hits and is one of Billboard's Top 100 Artists of All Time in hit songs history.

Jay Pinto, President of The Milford Oyster Festival, said “Lou Gramm is a legend. Hearing all his hit songs on the Main Stage is going to make for a very special Festival. We look forward to seeing you there.”

Gramm was the lead vocalist on all of Foreigner's hit songs, including "Feels Like the First Time", "Cold as Ice", "Long, Long Way from Home", "Hot Blooded", "Double Vision", "Blue Morning, Blue Day", "Head Games", "Dirty White Boy", "Urgent", "Juke Box Hero", "Break It Up" and "Say You Will". He co-wrote most of the songs for the band, which achieved two of its biggest hits with the ballads "Waiting for a Girl Like You", which spent ten weeks at #2 on the 1981-82 American Hot 100, and "I Want to Know What Love Is", which was a #1 hit internationally (US & UK) in 1985. Their first 8 singles cracked the Billboard Top 20,(4 went Top 10) making them the first group since the Beatles to achieve this in 1980.
