How did Greg respond when Maestro Pirone asked him to join the Five Freshmen? By donning his tuxedo and going to sing a collection of swing standards with a glass of Scotch in hand, and a repertoire of witty jokes to boot.
In 1978, Greg graced the stage for the very first time as a singer and performer. Since then, his unwavering passion has only flourished, reaching new heights. It comes as no surprise to find him captivating audiences in Italian clubs with his bands. While rooted in the sounds of 1950s Rock 'n’ Roll, Greg's irresistible charm as a swinging crooner knows no bounds. So, when Maestro Pirone extended the invitation to join the Five Freshmen, Greg gladly donned his tuxedo and embarked on a journey singing a collection of swing standards. With a glass of Scotch in hand, a repertoire of witty jokes, and visions of Las Vegas dancing in his mind, he is thrilled to be part of the 2023 Garda Jazz Festival.
