Gregg Parker is a charismatic, energetic, Full-Time Solo Acoustic Guitarist / Singer from the New Jersey / Philadelphia area who really KNOWS how to work a crowd. One NJ newspaper write up says, "...This guy could teach a Masters Class on the art of solo performing." Performing 200 + times each year, Gregg is one of New Jersey's most prolific and respected Event Performers - and demand for his services takes him on engagements from Long Island and New York throughout Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. Gregg specializes in performing at House Concerts & Parties, Cocktail & Dinner Events, Corporate Mixers, Country Clubs, Wineries and Upscale Restaurants, Festivals, Fairs, Graduation Parties, Holiday Celebrations, Birthday Parties, Fund Raisers, Outdoor Barbecues, Pool Parties, Wedding Rehearsal Dinners & After - Parties, Private Serenades... literally ANYWHERE there is a need for a dedicated, HIGH - QUALITY, PROFESSIONAL ENTERTAINER with an excellent voice and well - honed guitar and people skills.
POSSIBLY the tri - state area's hardest - working and most well - liked entertainers, Gregg specializes in popular songs from the late 60's, 70's and early 80's (think: "classic rock" / "folk rock*) with the occasional "standards" and / or more "current" selections thrown - in. LONG SETS of 3, 4, 5 & 6 hours and fewer "breaks" (if ANY) are his "stock - in - trade". Equally at home at YOUR private House Party, Winery, Restaurant or Intimate Get - Together as he is on a concert stage, Gregg captures audiences with stunning vocal interpretations of popular singer/songwriters such as Harry Chapin, Van Morrison, Rod Stewart, Jimmy Buffett, Cat Stevens, Eric Clapton, James Taylor, John Denver, Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nelson, Gordon Lightfoot, Jim Croce, Neil Young, Elton John, Paul Simon as well as established, well - loved bands like The Eagles, The Beatles, America, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Creedence Clearwater Revival and a whole LOT more.
"I can perform YOUR event to be anything from a simple "me and my guitar" - type serenade / sing - a - long ( i.e. - little to no amplification at all - suitable for smaller groups, surprise serenades, etc.) to suitably amplified "background music" ( or "musical glue" as I like to call it ) or as the "main event" where the music is more of the focal point of your affair. I move effortlessly from one mode to the other depending on the crowd - Every Event has a constantly changing dynamic. With literally decades of experience performing thousands of events I have a VERY well - developed sense of both "WHAT to play" and "WHEN and how" to play it - ALWAYS at a volume appropriate to YOUR event, venue and most importantly your guests. Requests are my "stock - in - trade" whether in advance or "live - on the fly", and I often learn material specifically for someone's "special occasion" - just ask. ( NOTE: Learning and arranging songs properly for performance does take time, and although I do sometimes literally learn a song "overnight" for someone it is appreciated when as much time as possible is given to allow for this - a good reason to BOOK ME EARLY and to get the specifics and the details on the table right away ). When I perform for YOU I can GUARANTEE you "Maximum Musical Bang - for - the - Buck" - I ALWAYS run out of time FAR before I run out of music - I work hard with each person that hires me to be the ONE thing you DON'T have to worry about for your event ( see CLIENT FEEDBACK for details ). Simply show me where I am to set up shop and you are free to go back to the hundred or so other last - minute details that require your attention. My only needs are a firm, flat, dry surface to set up on and access to a single, standard 110 - 117 volt A / C outlet - oh, AND an audience willing to be entertained!"
PLEASE TRY TO RESERVE EARLY FOR THE BEST POSSIBLE DATES - I always hate to have to tell someone "Sorry - I'm already booked for that date / time". Remember that music brings people TOGETHER, and that Few Things Compare to Bringing QUALITY Live Music to YOUR Event. Contact me TODAY and let's put together a truly MEMORABLE Musical Experience!"
For BEST AVAILABLE DATES DON'T DELAY - CONTACT and RESERVE TODAY!

Your Songster,

Gregg Parker / Burlington County, New Jersey

Just hired Gregg for my husbands 60th b day party...Gregg made the party,,hands down!! The process from beginning to end went flawlessly. I felt his good energy from his initial response and my instincts were right. He played for hours and knew when to take a break..when to keep going..when to change it up..he read the crowd like a pro...He asked me to choose songs from his list and he played all of them...just a true professional and a lovely person with great energy. I will absolutely hire him again..looking at my summer now to plan a party that he will hopefully be a part of...I look forward to many more years of including Gregg in my family events!!!

Gregg provided his services to us for my brother's wedding. It was an intimate Filipino wedding, very disorganized but fun and spontaneous. He was very flexible with changing up the whole song list to accommodate our requests. He even allowed our guests to borrow his equipment and sing with him on stage. Gregg sings from the heart. As soon as he started singing the song for the couple's first dance, the bride cried and several guests also. He takes the music and the lyrics of the song by heart and shares it with the audience. He is just phenomenal. I will definitely ask his services again in the future and recommend him to friends.

If you want your party to be a success you have to consider hiring Gregg. He is supremely talented, very professional and truly made our reunion special. Without prompting Gregg performed almost twice as long as he was booked for and worked the room as a master. Virtually everyone who attended commented on what a fine entertainer Gregg truly is. We give Gregg our highest recommendation.
