About
Second Wind is a group I formed after returning to music. We play bluegrass, swing, jazz, etc-the gig determines the folks I bring to play. We play everything from original progressive bluegrass to covers of rock/country to swing/gypsy jazz. We'll always have 3-part harmony and at least 4 instruments. I've played the Grand Ol Opry when I was a kid and with many incredible amateur and pro bands after returning to music from teaching physics at the university level.
I think I've played almost every type of show imaginable from corporate to private parties, bluegrass festivals, and coliseum shows.
Please check out our song lists for the variety of types of music we play and let us tailor our songs for your show.
You may find some folks willing to play for little or nothing but my folks are worth the difference!
I also have a gypsy jazz trio: The Greg Wilson Trio, which is actually a quartet with my wife adding extra vocals, and we add a violin or horn/piano to play purely jazz/swing gigs. Check out the epk and audio files in Files.

Greg was great from start to finish. He is a good communicator and planning the music at our event was pleasant. They arrived on time and were set up and ready to go. The music was great and danceable, and our crowd loved them! I would not hesitate to hire them again for an event.

Greg Wilson and the Second Wind gang, played a homecoming/birthday/promotion party we had for my husband and it was a fantastic time! They played phenomenally and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them. I appreciated their willingness to come on the military base where we reside and dealing with the security. I feel like they might as well be family now because next occasion we have for a party Greg will be the first call I make. It was a good time had by all and Greg and the gang really contributed to that. Truly cannot compliment their talent, professionalism, and sociability enough. Now I just need an excuse for another party! Book them!

Greg Wilson & Second Wind- Bluegrass Band’s Response:

We feel the same way! You guys were the best—first class all the way. Just let us know—love to play for you anytime. You did a great job organizing everything—and wrangling two sweet kids at the same time!

Greg Wilson & Second Wind were phenomenal. I even bought a CD! Our group really loved them and had a great time. People were still talking about it this morning. If you like Americana and Blue Grass, this is the band for your next event. Stellar...thank you so much.
