Don't let the name confuse you! Greg is Southern, but you don't have to be to enjoy the show! As a matter of fact, Greg believes Non-Southerners enjoy the show more because they not only laugh...but they get an education as well!
Funny seems to follow Greg wherever he goes. And he loves to share his experiences! Whether he's sharing stories of his upbringing or some interesting characters he's met in his life, he makes the story fun and extremely interesting to hear.
Greg brings his banjo to every show. Let him share some of his favorite tunes like "Grandma's Feather Bed", "Put Another Log On The Fire" or "The Rooster Song". He also performs some classic songs like "Don't Mess Around With Jim" and "The Scotsman's Kilt".
