ABOUT GREG HALL
Standing 6'5", Greg Hall's dreams of winning the Triple Crown as a jockey were dashed by the tender age of eight, so he picked up a guitar. From the oil fields of West Texas, Hall's redneck pedigree was established at fifteen, yet he longed for something more. Hall jokes that he did a rare thing in those parts...He learned to read. A fan of the classics, Hall could often be found with his Dickens in one hand and a can of Copenhagen in the other. Thus, a well-read redneck was born.
Hall's entertainment career began as a performing songwriter after winning a prestigious Kennedy Center award at the American College Theatre Festival for 'Outstanding Achievement in Musical Composition'. With that success, he quit college the next week and began singing in bars, "Mom was not happy." The next decade took him on a journey through thirty states and England. Hall released a few cd's along the way, and shared stages with such artists as Shelby Lynne, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Vern Gosdin, Keith Urban, and others.
A near fatal car wreck knocked him out of the game for a while. With a hard head, and the stubbornness of a mule, Hall rose like a bipolar phoenix and entered the realm of standup comedy. Always a quick wit, and with guitar in hand, he took his stage experience, songwriting chops, musicianship, and fast tracked into touring top top comedy clubs across the nation.
Good things come to those who wait, and even to those who screw up. "It's getting really cool these days. Eastern Europe, the Bahamas, my Uncle Larry's tire shop. Who knew that switching from heavy medication to heavy meditation would pay off so well....go figure." Part redneck, part philosopher..........Greg Hall is 'Bubbastotle'.
