About
Ggreg Snyder is a country singer in the vein of Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Josh Turner & other bass-baritone legends. He has released two albums of original music, "Vittles For Thought" and "Perilous Lizards," which are available on iTunes, CDBaby, Amazon and all other major outlets. He is currently working on a new musical, "Gehenna," as writer of the music, lyrics and libretto.

You may have seen him on t.v. ("Man Show" & "Beat The Geeks" on Comedy Central, "USA: Up All Night", "Trekkies 2" on Showtime, commercials, etc.) He and his Rustix specialize in honky-tonk music, the Bakersfield Sound. The band also plays a selection of rock and blues classics. Ggreg is a native Californian and LOVES the play the natives sounds of the state, including California Rock, Western swing and Bakersfield country.

Sound system: The band can supply its own sound system, with two 600 watt pa speakers, mixer, amps, monitors & mikes.

He is currently based in Los Angeles. Ggreg speaks fluent Spanish & is conversant in Japanese.

The Antelope Valley Press noted this act's "musical flair..., upbeat tunes and classic musicianship," and the Muse Patrol blog admired Ggreg's "Folksy gravitas." Despite his musical theatre background, he is perfectly at home playing honky-tonk country, performing the music of Alan Jackson, Johnny Cash, Josh Turner, Zac Brown, Trace Adkins, Waylon Jennings & many others. A typical set might consist of the following songs: Your Man, All My Exes Live In Texas, Luchenbach Texas, Neon Moon, Who's Cheatin' Who, Honky Tonk Women, Jambalaya, Good Time, and Ring Of Fire. Or maybe: Folsom Prison Blues, Mama Tried, Is Anybody Goin' To San Antone, Lay Down Sally, Margaritaville, Waltz Across Texas, Tulsa Time and Chattahoochie.

Ggreg has played venues in North America, Europe & Asia. In California, he has been booked at the House Of Blues, the Viper Room, Sweetwater, El Rey Cantina, UnUrban, the Coconut Teaszer, Madame Wong's West, Club 88, Common Grounds, Butler's, the Basement, The Next Stage, Hollywood Palm, Paradise, the Moondog Café, Highland Grounds, Bear's Lair & the Breakaway, to name a few. The extra "G" in his first name is part of his stage name. It is search engine friendly.

The Rustix is a professional back-up band capable of sounding just like the popular recorded versions. Being based in the entertainment capital of the world, sometimes they are the person on the record. Band members have national tour credits with major artists, gold records, accolades from the CMA, and there are even some who may not have the praise or riches they deserve; they are amazing at their craft.

About the band:

Lead guitar duties have been handle by the following players: Robert Heft (Robert Heft Blues Band,) Harry Orlove, Al Bonhomme (Dwight Yoakum,) Val Rael, and Will Ray (the Hellecasters.)

Bass has been slapped by Parallel Parker (Virginia & The Slims,) Maria Weir, Suzanne Birrell, E Zane Wood, Mike Barry (Chris Gaffney,) and Bob Glaub (Jackson Brown, John Lennon, Don Henley, Stevie Nicks & just about everyone else.)

Ggreg was Ggreat! This was a party for our boss, an 82 year old man who LOVES country music. The band played a nice mix of newer stuff (Alan Jackson, Josh Turner) & older tunes (Johnny Cash, Waylon, Charlie Pride.) Our boss absolutely loved it. He's from a small town in Tennessee & he said it reminded him of listening to the Grand Ol Opry on Saturday nights. I highly recommend Ggreg & the Rustix to anyone who wants a fun country music experience for their event.
