What sets Greg apart from other vocalists is the fullness and resonance with which he sings. There are many good vocalists singing Sinatra, Neil Diamond, and Johnny Cash but precious few can match the sheer power which Greg brings to these timeless songs. These legendary artists had rich, resonant voices which other singers try to compensate for with vocal acrobatics and electronic enhancement, but which few vocalists have naturally. Compared to Greg, listening to other vocalists sing these songs is like being at a disco without sub-woofers. It's the low end and resonance that adds an authentic feel and gravitas to the performance...and no amount of clever vocal impersonation can convince you otherwise. But Greg will make you believe.
Greg utilizes high quality backing tracks and a state of the art sound system to bring his vocals to life. Singing is his passion and he takes his craft and equipment seriously. He has three separate sound systems which can be used sparingly (for more intimate affairs) or can be combined for audiences of up to 400 people eliminating the need to rent expensive sound systems for events where the audience is less than 400 and greatly reducing the cost for audiences from 400-800. Audiences over 800 require specialized, industrial equipment.
He does concerts, weddings, corporate events, private parties, and other functions. Here is a summary of the different types of shows he performs.
THREE TIMELESS VOICES – This show highlights the music of Johnny Cash, Neil Diamond, and Frank Sinatra. Many of the biggest hits of each of these Timeless artists are brought to life. It can be constructed to go from a 2-set, 90 minute show all the way to 3 sets and 3 hours.
50 YEARS OF NEIL DIAMOND – This is a three-set, two-hour-plus show covering the amazing career of Neil Diamond. The audience always gets engaged in singing along to many songs. Singing Neil Diamond is how he got started entertaining and this is still his favorite show to perform.
20 YEARS OF NEIL DIAMOND – This show is a chronological review that can be presented in one or two sets. In the shorter version of this show he utilizes medleys of some of Diamond's songs from the first 20 years of his career (which produced the majority of his hits).
SINATRA SPECTACULAR – This is a 90-minute Sinatra show. This is Greg's most often requested show due to the amazing appeal of Old Blue Eyes. It can be stretched to be a two-hour-plus show if he sprinkles in just a few songs from other crooners such as Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, and others.
CLASSIC CROONERS – This show features the music of the old crooners such as Sinatra, but has a healthier does of Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Bobby Darin, Englebert Humperdink, and others. It can be tailored anywhere from one to three sets and up to two hours or more.
MAN IN BLACK – This a one-hour Johnny Cash show. Johnny Cash juset might be the most universally loved artist he performs and many people tell Greg that Cash is the very best of his impersonations.
