Hello! My name is Alan Gresik.
I am so glad to see you checking out my website.
As a professional pianist/live music broker my most complex and on going project has been Alan Gresik Swing Orchestra . It’s one thing to form a top flight 1937 swingband, it’s another thing to create a live radio broadcast including cleverly tailored commercials within one package. Quite an illusion!
When: Every Thursday since 1998 can such an outfit be witnessed.
Where: Green Mill Lounge 4802 N. Broadway at Lawrence in Uptown Chicago.
The Jazz Capital of the Universe.
8pm to 12midnight $10 cover. Our focus is to see how close our 15 piece ensemble can get to 1936 -37 United States of America Hot Dance Music uncovering concepts that have been buried and forgotten for decades.
So far so good. It has only taken me 40 years to get to this point. Lots of moving parts.
Solo Piano is my other forte. Although I don’t consider myself a jazz pianist, all my melodies are fresh and creative mixing multiple genre’s and time signatures together.
Sound Sculpting is my specialty. Every room has it’s own unique acoustic characteristic’s. Hire Alan Gresik!
