If playing to the audience is an art, Greg Tivis is a master of it. It's second nature to someone familiar with the smell of diesel, musty hotel rooms, constant travel for months on end, no real home, setting up and tearing down show after show after show. In musician's terms, Greg Tivis is a veteran who knows the trenches. From show bands to circus bands, dance orchestras to blues bands, jazz bands to rock bands, he's been there, done that. He's paid his dues and earned the respect of musicians and fans all over the country. He does it for one reason, he loves to entertain people. Check him out when he entertains the crowds on Thursday, January 17th.
Today, Greg Tivis enjoys living in College Station, Texas with his wife Margaret. Since settling in the Brazos Valley in 1993, Greg has established himself firmly in the region as a first-rate entertainer. In addition to doing solo work, he has formed his own company, Piano Plus Entertainment, which offers the services of his trio, quartet, jazz band and big band.
Greg Tivis continues to perform weekly at College Station’s premiere upscale venue, Veritas Wine and Bistro, where he has performed since 2008, as well as events for the local chamber, TAMU, the 12th Man Foundation and many private events both locally and in the Houston area.
In addition to a full performance schedule, Greg teaches privately on a limited basis and is the lead instructor at Jazz Night School at the Frame Gallery in downtown Bryan, founded by Randy and Greta Watkins in 2011. JNS offers community classes open to all musicians of all levels interested in learning the art of American jazz and improvisation.
Check out this multi-talented artist live next Thursday night! Tickets are now available.
At The Retreat at 2818 Apartments in Bryan, Texas, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
