Greg Allen Beck
Greg & Mike (duo) Big Sweet Life (band)
Acoustic contemporary folk, rock, pop and a little country
I’ve been playing guitar for most of my life, but never wrote a song until I had a lot of time to kill during the Covid pandemic. I record with a simple home setup, featuring just me. I’ve written and recorded over 55 so far (January 2023). I played in an acoustic duo back in the early 80’s. We reunited in 2021 and are now playing again, mostly in the Brainerd/Baxter lakes area at craft breweries. I performed with a rock/blues cover band out of Little Falls called Big Sweet Life for 18 years. In the past few years we’ve specialized in multimedia theme shows of live music intertwined with photos, videos, interview clips and narration to tell the stories behind the music. Past themes have included songs of Lennon/McCartney, The British Invasion, B-Side Beauties (famous 45 RPM flip side songs) and Dylanography (all about Bob Dylan and his compositions made popular by other artists.) I retired from a 27 year career as an educator, and then from 10 years as an entrepreneur. I live on a Roy Lake in Nisswa, MN.
