*** "I have booked Glen many times and am always thrilled with his level of musicianship and professionalism. Glen is a frequent artist on PosiPalooza concert tours around the country, wowing audiences with his charm and amazing songs. I've booked him for the house band at the Unity Worldwide Ministries conference, for Sound Connections conferences, and Glen has been in the house band for the Posi Festival for the last 10 years. This year, Glen will be the band leader for the Posi Fest. In addition to his own great songs, Glen knows tons of cover songs! He has lead the after-party at the Posi Fest for the last 10 years. Glen is fun, talented, easy to work with, and organized. He plays great guitar and has a great voice. You will be thrilled." Sue Riley, emPower Music & Arts
Witty, energetic, very approachable Glen always finds opportunities for 'volunteers' to come 'help him sing' up on stage (to the delight of your friends).
*** "Just GREAT. Performances straight from the heart!" - Jean Alain Roussel (Cat Stevens, Celine Dion, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Thin Lizzy, 10cc, The Police)
Glen can work info about your friends and staff into the show and may even improvise a song about a situation as it unfolds! Want your party to pop? Have Glen write, record & perform a custom song for you—whether a corporate "roast and toast" or a family commemoration—name any style of music. Just ask your planner how much fun that would be!
*** "Glen has that gift which brings out a spark in people." - Amy Tuttle, Long Island Music Hall of Fame
