About
“Amazing!!! We hired Greg for the hotel's Grand Opening event and he was absolutely amazing, definitely one of the highlights of the event. Guests enjoyed it, complimenting Greg and his talent.” -Aliya A. Director of Sales, Hilton Homewood Suites.

“ Favorite local musician. Amazing at what he does. We hired him for our wedding! “ - Lauren Page.

Greg Despins is a one-man-band who uses looping and effects pedals to make his guitar also sound like drums, bass, and keyboards. He layers these different parts together live and then sings and plays lead guitar on top of that, which is an art form on its own. Greg is the resident musician at CU29 Cocktail Bar in downtown Austin. His sets include mostly 80's, 90's and modern pop cover songs. Greg is getting great reviews playing gigs around Austin where he creates a larger than life atmosphere at different clubs and events.

“We had the pleasure of having Greg Despins perform at our bar and he did NOT disappoint. What an incredibly talented and kind soul. We received a plethora of compliments from attendees for the next week after he played. Marvelous. “ -Live City Staff

“We hired Greg for our Grand Opening party for entertainment. He was on time and ready to go with all the equipment. He's very good, seeing the situation and taking control and understanding what was needed. I can't say enough about his entertainment value. We had many customers asking about him and saying how great he was! Will absolutely have him back for more events in the future.” - Jeff Howard

“Greg Despins is a all 'round great entertainer. Music and vocals were well received by our full house! “ - Louise G. Owner of Jef's Cafe.

We hired Greg for a Lakehouse Party for about 85 friends. Greg was amazing to work with on all levels! He understood his audience and livened up the room. His guitar and vocals were over the top fantastic! We heard all positive comments from our guest! Friends thought the looping was the best they have heard. He was very professional, played a perfect music selection and worked with me regarding the flow of his music during the party!!He’s amazing! I’m truly pleased and would not change anything about his performance!! I feel blessed that I found Greg! He lifted the entire event level with his music! Thank you Greg for creating a music magical evening!!!!!! !!!!!!!

Greg was great in communicating before the event, and he arrived early to set up. It was a formal dinner party to celebrate my younger son's engagement, and although the dinner itself was amazing, the real party started when Greg started playing! His music created a fabulous atmosphere that just made the evening really special! He is incredibly talented! I highly recommend him! :)

Fantastic performance with a large range of music that kept everyone entertained and dancing. Greg was playing on a boat and even easily moved to the open air upper deck once the sun set. He set up quickly and is very professional. For those who throw parties-you know that MUSIC is one of the most IMPORTANT aspects.. Hire Greg, take the stress off, as you WON'T be disappointed.
