I've developed many shows appropriate for concerts, private and corporate events, weddings, and school educational concerts:
Greta's Holiday Show
As featured on KPLU's Christmas Jam, this show is an evening of familiar holiday classics and some lesser know but beautiful songs by Johnny Mathis, Henry Mancini, Burt Bacharach, the Carpenters, Judy Garland, and the Tijuana Brass! Songs include: Every Christmas Eve, Merry Christmas, Giving, I Want a Hippoptamus for Christmas, It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, and all the usual classics. My latest Christmas CD, "Have Yourself a Jazzy Little Christmas," a collaboration with pianist, Mike Strickland, is a wonderful example of the holiday season's material. Here are some audio samples:
Light Out of Darkness: The Music of Ray CharlesA brand new show featuring Greta and the quartet performing some of Ray Charles' greatest hits, R&B, jazz and ballads. Songs include: Let the Good Times Roll, Just for a Thrill, Hit the Road Jack, Drown in My Own Tears and Sticks and Stones.
Ella and BillieA critically-acclaimed one-woman show highlighting the careers of two of the first ladies of jazz. Featuring many of their greatest hits and biographical information about their lives. Songs include: You'll Have to Swing It, Loverman, Swing Brother Swing, Lady Be Good, and many more!
By RequestA spontaneous night of jazz standards as only an audience can supply! Each night is different. Audience members are encouraged to shout out their favorite standards, and Greta and the band will field them and make a new interpretation happen on the spot! Only seasoned performers can pull this one off!
That Shearing Sound!The music of George Shearing as recorded with Peggy Lee, Nancy Wilson and Dakota Staton. Featuring Susan Pascal on vibraphone.
Greta also performs with several Northwest big bands, including Tuxedo Junction, the Bill Ramsey/Milt Kleeb Big Band, and the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra.
