Greg Rekus entertains with energetic acoustic guitar

 Greg Rekus jumps for joy. Photo by Richard AmeryWinnipeg’s Greg Rekus can sure make a racket on acoustic guitar.

He proved to be a one man show, Sept. 26 at the Owl Acoustic Lounge as he jumped up and down, banging out rhythm on a massive box he set up and miced on the stage. He sang with frenetic energy and leaped all over his stage while strumming heavily.

 He sounded a lot like Social Distortion’s Mike Ness’ country project, but had a sound all his own. He sang several songs from his latest CD “ The Dude Abides.”

 He got the audience of about 20 people worked up and singing along like a  crazed kitchen party
 Opening act Ian MacInnes played a somewhat more sedate show of acoustic folk  sounding like a mix of Bob Dylan and Elliott Brood. He sang  several originals as well as respectable covers of the Rolling Stones’ “Dead Flowers,” and several others.
