Greg Farnese Greg Farnese

Greg Farnese is modern-day throwback vocalist, a crooner, if you will. He reignites the treasured and timeless classics from The Great American Songbook in his live performances and blends them with his unique interpretations of his modern -day favorites.

A South Jersey native, Greg began his career in acting, and moved to Hollywood, California where he worked in theater, television and in films. Missing his roots, he ultimately moved back to the East Coast, where he started his own production company producing content for television, commercials, web content and documentaries. It was here in New Jersey, that his love of jazz and his vocal abilities took root and he began singing professionally. His soulful tone and inspired phrasing, as well as his reputation as a consummate performer, have produced a wide fan base of musicians and music lovers.

In 2017 Greg released his very first EP titled “Set In Motion” which was picked up by the prestigious label “Victor Records” With a mix of contemporary covers (RADIOHEAD, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS) to classic standards (COLE PORTER, RODGERS/HART) “Set in Motion” has been admired by a cross section of listeners. “Set in Motion” is available on iTunes, Cd Baby, Amazon and here on this site.

Greg Farnese is proud to have shared the bandstand, with renown jazz artisits such as Tom Adams, Jim Holton, Tom Lawton, Chris Simonini, Larry McKenna, Lee Smith, Mike Boone, Andy Lalasis, Madison Rast, Tim Warfield & Behn Gillece.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
