As a sought-after corporate and private entertainer his performances and 5-star reviews have earned him the “Best of 2012,” “Best of 2013” and “Best of 2015” awards at Gigmasters, the premiere online booking agency.

Glen and his little mahogany soprano ukulele have partied at banquet hall weddings, hotel luaus, private parties, art openings, at beach events, churches and on boats. His guitar has seen thousands of concerts, international excursions, and other exciting adventures. Along with guitar, vocal and ukulele, Glen also has played bass, keys and percussion in ensembles as diverse as a Jamaican Reggae band, a heavy alt-rock band, and even guitar & vocals in a jazz band (A Few Good Men) with three amazing, formerly-incarcerated jazz players (plus the Director of Deutsche Bank, NY, who played drums).
