Latin Grammy Award–winning Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band bring whimsy to the amphitheater this summer, performing what the Chicago Tribune hails as “indie pop-rock for seriously groovin’ families.”

In 2013, their first Spanish-language album, ¡Fantastico!, won a Grammy for Best Latin Children’s Album. Their television series, Lishy Lou and Lucky Too, won one of its three Emmy Award nominations in 2015.Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band bring smart, crafty lyrics with irresistibly fresh pop beats.
