Greg Rekus adds a touch of punk to his folk

E-mail Print PDF

Winnipeg folk/ punk singer Greg Rekus played a fun filled show for an intimate audience at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Jan. 13 on a Greg Rekus returned to Lethbridge, Jan. 13. Photo by Richard Amerychilly, snowy night.

 He growled into the microphone and had a Celtic-punk feel to his music.
 He jumped around on an upraised wooden stage with a few tambourines scattered on it.

 He sang a variety of music including originals from his two CDs including his latest CD ‘Punkcoustic’ as well as covers as varied as Waylon Jennings and NOFX.
 Some of the highlights were his song about legendary Winnipeg punk club the Royal Albert plus another one about walking home from the bar while drunk as well as a song called ‘High Class.’

 He attempted to get the dozen or so people involved with the show by clapping and stomping their feet in time to his music.

He played most of his new CD and several upbeat tracks from his previous CD. He wound things down by trying to get the audience to sing along with a song and by playing a kazoo solo while jumping up an down on his stage.
