Greg Began playing guitar at the age of 9 and seemed from the start to have a great deal of natural talent. He learned chords quickly and learned to harmonize singing with his big brother, Gary. A few years later Greg learned that he could imitate voices while watching old movies with his dad. Greg would try to talk like the actors on the screen – iconic stars from the past like W.C. Fields, Jimmy Stewart, and James Mason just to name a few. His father would laugh with glee as Greg tried to sound like those legendary actors. It seemed only natural, then, that Greg developed a love for acting as a teen. Immersing himself in theatrical studies and Community Theater, Greg showed himself to be a natural performer and learned to become at ease on stage.
Greg played is first gig at age 15 at a high school dance in Cheboygan, Michigan. He first appeared as Elvis some years later in 1996. Through the years Greg has been in many theatrical productions and in TONS of bands in virtually every genre. Now an accomplished musician, Greg plays several instruments and is involved in various recording and music production projects in addition to his full-time performance schedule. A Michigan Native, Greg Jaqua has now worked as a professional musician for over 30 years and has performed his tribute to the King for over 2 decades.
