With an acoustic guitar in his hands and a giant stomp box under his feet, Winnipeg’s Greg Rekus delivers his own unique brand of punk rock-infused folk music guaranteed to shake rafters, move floorboards, and get even the most stoic of concert-goers out of their seats. From the U.K. to the Ukraine, through Canada, the United States and Mexico, Rekus is no stranger to the touring circuit, sharing the stage with friends and delighting audiences far and wide with songs from his three independently released full-length albums, all the while setting an entirely new standard for DIY music.
After the highly successful release of Sibling Cities (2017), and spending the first half of the year touring the album throughout North America and Europe, Rekus has no plans to slow down. This fall, beginning with several dates across Western Canada, Rekus continues his tour down the West Coast of the United States, including TIM Fest in Oakland, CA. at the end of September. From there, Rekus hits Mexico for a few shows before playing his way across the South to Florida, where in Gainesville, FL he will be making his fourth appearance at No Idea Record’s, The Fest. After Florida, Rekus will be joined by Gab De La Vega, a fellow folk-punker from Italy, and together they will make their way up the East Coast of the United States into Eastern Canada. The tour will conclude after a handful of Midwest dates, bringing Rekus back home for December.
Sad songs probably about death or something. Tissues not included.
