It's the hardest working man in punk rock!
There are a few people who have an all-purpose “pass” to come on the podcast anytime they have something to talk about, and one of those is folk-punk die-hard Greg Rekus.
Greg is about to embark on (another) lengthy tour, kicking off with a local show at Blue Note Park on Sept. 7.
We talked about his neverending adventures on the road, performing solo vs. full band, busting out of a pandemic-affected writer’s block, and much more.
