CAPTAIN & THE KEELS! An all-star lineup of musicians from the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill Triangle of North Carolina — serving up the very best of West Coast smooth "Yacht Rock," right here on the East Coast.
Remember a time when ‘Smooth’ ruled the musical universe? After the angry protest songs of the 60’s, and before the gansta’s raging rap of the 90’s. When Boz Scaggs, Kenny Loggins, Christopher Cross, Toto, The Doobie Brothers, Michael MacDonald, The Eagles, Hall & Oates, Michael Jackson, Steely Dan, and Chicago all jumped into a giant Hollywood recording studio’s waterbed together, and incestuously made ‘smooth, not war.’
As a result, “Yacht Rock” dominated the airWAVES for a decade — then, suddenly, sadly, disappeared smoothly over music’s fickle horizon. BUT, alas, an entire generation of smooth music lovers, having previously walked the plank of modern radio, are rising up from the dark, bottomless depths of punk, rap, electronica, trance and death metal...and, sailing to their rescue...CAPTAIN & THE KEELS!
Dance the night away, sing along, or chill out on the decks of Captain & The Keels yacht of smooth, to the hits of your favorite Yacht Rock artists from that incomparable decade of smooth. There is no skimping on the original sounds with this band. With five horns, a half dozen vocalists, and percussion galore, this is the most authentic yacht rock revue in the country . . . and you'll recognize every note, even if you're three sheets to the wind.
Yah Mo B There?

The Return got its start back in 1995 when four young friends got together to play their favorite Beatles songs just for the fun of it. It wasn’t long before they played in front of an audience at the request of a friend and as it turned out, were very well received. That show—which was supposed to be a one time thing--led to another gig, which led to another and so on until the band found themselves playing on a regular basis. They decided to go ahead and make it official. They named themselves "the Roaches".
As time went on, they began to polish up their act a bit and became fixated on the idea of striving for the highest level of authenticity possible. They wanted to recreate the early sixties Beatles concert experience from the tiniest detail (John Lennon’s on-stage gum-chewing) to the biggest, most expensive details (using exact replicas of the instruments and gear the Beatles used). While they were learning to comb their moptops just right and finding the right Beatle boots and black suits to wear, they were also learning each song note for note, rhythm for rhythm—getting the signature moves and ‘looks’ of the Fab Four down pat, too. They practiced relentlessly--with a growing passion for getting their show just right. In the years that followed a few members came and went, and the band took on a more professional presence. They got an agent, changed their name to "the Return", and began to command the attention of more widely renowned clients not only in the United States, but in multiple other countries as well—including England.
“They are known as one of the best Beatles cover bands in the country for a reason, and it was evident from our fans’ reaction to hearing them play.” — Scott Cunningham ~ Director of Entertainment ~ Atlanta Braves
Today the band still strives to maintain the utmost level of authenticity in their show. In fact, they are known for it. They’ve played thousands of shows at theaters, festivals, fairs, casinos, cruise ships, universities, weddings, birthdays and bar mitzvahs--as well as countless corporate events for companies like Coca Cola, ABC, Hard Rock Cafe, and Volkswagen International--and the reaction is the same every time. People are amazed at how much the Return sounds and looks just like the Beatles.
“They were great! Their energy and enthusiasm jumps off the stage. It was quite fun to watch them and imagine what it must have been like at an actual Beatles concert!” — Tony Perkins ~ Good Morning America
The Return has crafted a truly authentic, entertaining, and very exciting show. And in doing so, the band not only delivers a near perfect reproduction of a live Beatles concert--they capture the very essence of the Beatles themselves.
“Seeing the Return is like traveling back to Liverpool in the early 1960s...The Beatles live thanks to the Return!”
— Jim Weiss~Senior VP of PR ~ Turner Broadcasting

Growing up in a musical family, Greg started playing the guitar at age 14 and took vocal lessons at the age of 21. After spending many years performing in local bar circuit Greg dreamed of moving to Nashville to pursue his musical career. The death of Greg's father in 2007 prompted Greg to take a leap of faith and head out to Nashville to follow his dreams.
When Greg returned home, friends began approaching Greg telling him, "congratulations! You finally made it! Confused by these comments, Greg soon became aware that there was a fairly new country artist named Jason Aldean who Greg apparently looked like. Over the next 4 years, Greg got approached by the public asking if he was Jason Aldean. In 2011, when Jason Aldean hit it big with "Dirt Road Anthem" people really started to approach Greg.
In 2012, Greg emailed 3 tribute shows in Las Vegas to see if they believed he also looked like Jason Aldean. About a week later, Country Superstars, a show in the V Theaters at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, sent him back an email agreeing Greg looked like Jason Aldean and 3 months after that Greg was performing on the Las Vegas Strip.
In 2015 Greg teamed up with "Country Artists Tribute" a 3 artists tribute show owned by Reno Vegas Entertainment performing on the West Coast at fairs and casinos.
Today, Greg is traveling nationally booking casinos, cruises, fairs, festivals and clubs for himself and also performing with Nashville Stars Live.

When it comes to Lynyrd Skynyrd fans, it could be said, that there are in fact, two very different kinds...
The first kind would be the millions who were fortunate enough to catch a live show from the original Skynyrd back in the 70's. For these fans, the original line-up, raw sound, and sheer power of the original band will remain forever in their minds as a distant memory, with nothing but old photographs, videos, and records to remind them of how it once was.
The second kind is the fans who just were not fortunate enough to catch a show from the original lineup back in the day, but wish to no end that they would've, or could've before it was too late. Either they weren't yet born, old enough, or it was one of those things that they always wanted to do, but obviously never realized that there was a clock ticking that would stop on the fateful day of October 20th, 1977.
In either case, "Tuesday's Gone" has got you covered. Authentically, they nail it every time! From that signature Skynyrd sound, to the sheer raw power that the original band possessed, to the unmistakeable look they had. Tuesday's Gone has pulled out all of the stops, and every base covered. Dedicated to reproducing the original sound of one of the greatest and most legendary bands of all time, their attention to detail should be commended, and is most certainly appreciated by thousands of die-hard Skynyrd fans all over the country!!
Unlike a lot of other tribute bands, who sometimes give other tribute bands a "bad wrap", Tuesday's Gone doesn't strive to get CLOSE to the way it was once played, but in fact plays it down to the very last note just how it was written, and performed on stage in a rock 'n' roll era that will be forever missed, but never forgotten.
Whether you were indeed fortunate enough to see Lynyrd Skynyrd in their prime, and would love to revisit some of those memories, or you never had the chance to create those memories, you'll want to catch a Tuesday's Gone show. They are the absolute closest band that you could ever hope to see and hear to one of the most respected, loved, and missed bands of all time.
Tuesday's Gone exists for one reason only, and that's for the loyal and true Lynyrd Skynyrd fan. Do yourself a favor, and see them when they come to your area. They bring back to life some of the greatest Skynyrd hits, such as "Sweet Home Alabama", "Gimme Three Steps", "Simple Man", "Tuesday's Gone", "Saturday Night Special", and Freebird", and also some deeper cuts that the die hard fans just can't get enough of, like "On The Hunt", "Gimme Back My Bullets", "All I Can Do Is Write About It", and "Down South Jukin'". Their promise to you: You won't ever forget the new memories that they are PROUD to make for you!
