ABOUT

Greg has played, performed and recorded at festivals and venues with a number of bands throughout Michigan since relocating from Colorado in the late 2000's.

THE GREG VADNAIS QUARTET

I actually think of this quartet as a "collective" comprised of accomplished musicians who are in such high demand, that it is often necessary to rotate personnel. The primary group is Bruce Dondero on bass, Ron Getz on guitar, and Chris Bickley on sax.


Alternate members have included Steve Sandner, Steve Stargardt, Dave Collini, Andy Evans, Patrick Terbrack, Owen James and others as guest artists. 

 

BOTALA

Botala blends the sounds of traditional Afro-Cuban and Brazilian music with house and Afro Beat, including live percussion and live looping. Originally conceived purely as a looping project, I've grown to describe this as a "DJ project with live elements". Great for salsa, merengue, samba, and all kinds of dancing.
