Kathy Lamar grew up in Grand Rapids, MI and in 1980, moved to Las Vegas to sing with her friend, pianist Tex Richardson. During her 30-year career in Las Vegas, she sang backup and duos with musicians Wayne Newton, Gladys Knight, The Four Tops, Lola Falana, and Robert Guillaume.
Lamar’s beautiful voice has been heard around the world. Since the early 1990s, she’s performed for months at a time in Japan, China, Taiwan, and Singapore.
She now lives in Grand Rapids where she performs with various local musicians as part of a duo, trio, and quartet.
Vocalist Kathy Lamar says her shows are like a blind date –– because you never know what you’re going to get. She sings a diverse blend of jazz, R&B, soul, and pop hits pulled from many decades. One minute, you might hear a Sting or Bob Marley tune, and the next, an Ella Fitzgerald or Billy Holiday song. Her powerful voice and infectious laugh keeps audiences coming back for more.
