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 brother, Gary.
He learned that he could imitate voices 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
while Greg tried to sound like those legendary voices. It seemed
only natural, then, when 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 nearly
