gr ::  entertainer

Original music should be fun – but then, there are those amazing cover tunes…

A sought-after corporate and private entertainer, Glen consistently receives 5-star reviews which have earned him “Best of awards many times at Gigmasters  (now theBASH), and “Top Performer” repeatedly at GigSalad, the two hippest national online agencies for entertainers.

John Redgate - amazing entertainer!

Glen, how do you know so many Beatles songs…and play them so well?!
~ John Redgate


With his gorgeous custom “Angel” Gibson acoustic and little mahogany soprano ukulele, Glen has entertained 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, a multinational Buddhist Jazz-Rock fusion band with a 100-person choir, 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).
