PHILOSOPHY
There is a widespread belief that music is medicine. I subscribe to that idea, not
only at a basic "gut" level, but also because throughout my academic studies
which culminated with a Doctor of Musical Arts (DMA) program at the world-renowned
Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY, I researched sound evidence of
its truth. I have dedicated my life striving to realize that healing purpose through
all my professional activities.

COMPANY
I understand musicians because I am one. I am in a unique position to negotiate
directly with entertainers and properly evaluate their abilities. I also have a proven
track record in customer service, sales, and the Food & Beverage industry, so I
also understand "bottom line" business goals. I am an agent who not only cares
intimately about music, clients, and customers, but one who actually knows a lot
about each of those too! That's what I believe sets my company apart.

ARTIST
In an artistic career spanning 30 years and five countries, I've released 10 CDs, four
videos, and been the subject of a documentary film called, "An American Cat in the
Lion City." My 50+ original compositions take listeners on a cross-cultural journey
of syncopated rhythms, soulful melodies, hard-swinging jazz, and exotic percussion.
I perform in many different formats and genres, a few of which include:

Greg Chako & Unity
An effective mix of Hard Bop & Latin guaranteed to keep listener attention

The Great American Songbook (GAS)
Classic Oldies, Standards, Evergreens, Blues, & Bossa's, played with elegant nuance

Bossa Nouveau
Romantic, Brazilian-influenced flute and classical guitar
