Gran-pa Greg will be plying his musical trade at Hatties this coming Thursday, March 22 at 6:30 PM.
An eclectic mix of new and used music in a not so well thought out - grab bag sort of way. As it is hatties, a we bit of protest songs will be in order!
As this will be a solo act -- i'll be taking a different approach to my music that-- hopefully is a slightly new and refreshing sound than we're all used to.
