Greg Kramer ~
I have been playing and singing in bands since age 11.  I began writing songs at age 14.  Along the way, I've recorded and performed with many bands including:  Dead Horse Saloon, Rodeo, Outlaw Black, Easy Money and others.  In the 70's I started fronting my own projects including Stew D. Baker and the Hawkes;  Greg Kramer and Stronghold (working with producer Daniel Moore), including players like Frank Montoya, Richie Hayward, Colin Cameron, Danny Timms, Dave Pearlman and many others. 
Next came my long association with The Heat Brothers (formed out of Canned Heat).  In that band, I worked with Don Preston, Coco Montoya, Paul Cotton, Billy Ward, Dave Busey and many more.  We released CDs in 2005 and 2007.  So now it's the Greg Kramer Band featuring me along with:  Frank Montoya (guitar and vocals);  Colin Cameron (bass and vocals);  Drake Shining (keys and vocals);  and Bill Dragoo on drums.
We are currently working on our first CD which will be released soon.
