“Greg is one of the most versatile keyboard players in the Bay Area. He can play jazz, classical, contemporary, and has a flair for upbeat honky-tonk and ragtime compositions.”
-Kevin Frazier, General Manager Empress Theater
Originally from Connecticut, Greg now resides in American Canyon CA, north east of San Francisco. After hearing Dr. John play piano, Greg developed a passion for two fisted piano styles like boogie woogie and New Orleans jazz. His most recent project Rent Party Piano is inspired by the rent parties that were common in urban American cities in the 1920's and 30s, where renters would invite guests to parties a few days before rent was due, charging 25¢ for admission and have live musicians perform, serve food and drink, and celebrate. These compositions are dripping with honky-tonk, jazz, blues and blazing boogie-woogie influences from pianists like Fats Waller, Professor Longhair, Pete Johnson and Dr John.
As an in-demand musician, he has performed with a diverse range of artists including rock guitar legend Ronnie Montrose, Gamma with Davey Pattison, blues legend Chris Cain, and latin jazz artists Pete Escovedo, and Ray Obiedo.
A passionate composer Greg’s work can be heard on over 200 video game titles such as Marvel: Contest of Champions, Lord of the Rings: Legends of Middle Earth, and Star Wars: Uprising. His soundtracks have been honored with various industry awards.
