Greg & Brian: Jekyll & Hyde. Greg's tragi-comedy songwriting with Brian's comic-trag timing make for utter diversity if not certifiability. Their music dances between heartbreak, naughty-silly, originals, soundtracks, and hundreds of live and recorded credits.
Backstory: Met in 1996 when Greg was hungry and Brian was a waiter. Combined our dream playlists. Agreed. Started playing live shows with next to no rehearsal - and it worked. Current story: Warning - may cause excessive laughing, dancing, and hangover the following morning! Greg and Brian have brought their insanity on tour with such acts as Tango Palace, Dokken, and Soil, and regularly tour England. A big hit with Universal Studios Florida and Walt Disney World, their shows sold out due to their strong following almost by word of mouth alone. Their upcoming debut singles and album are due for 2006. Previously, they led Tango Palace to successful indie CD sales and tours. Greg's classical background and Brian's jazz training jell in unique ways, giving their rockiesh popiesh sound a sonic twist and depth. Greg not only is a talented performer, but dances, tells jokes, and warms the halls through his use of eye contact and his laughing smile. The duo's high energy is absolutely contagious. Einstein's first law of energy states that "energy is neither created nor destroyed, but it may be converted from one form to another", and G&B understand that they cannot get more energy out of the crowd than what they put in. Brian's voice blends well with Greg, and his harmonies are smooth; together their vocals soar above their instrumentation. His drumming is passionate, energetic, and combined with his sharp sense of humor, really pulls the crowd into the show. He likes to punch through the invisible barrier that exists between the performers and audience as early in the show as possible. Aside from their originals, they can play practically anything, from the 50's to now. Greg has a rich, bluesy-tinged voice which gives them a universal appeal and highly original sound at the same time.
