Greg Lee Cincinnati Musician DJ

Most know me as a professional musician, piano player and singer (DJ, too)  but that is only a part of who I am.  When I'm not on stage entertaining I love spending time with my family, including my 9 year old son, Boe.

 

Working mostly evenings allows me to spend  time at home so  we play, a LOT, and I mean a LOT!   We love LEGOS, dressing up in our multitude of costumes and day trips to museums.

My wife and I have traveled to southern India many times, where we provide aid to those in need.

 

I'm an avid songwriter, have dozens of songs published with sales at the 1 million mark. Check out my latest original song. THE ONES THAT LAST A LIFETIME

 

I love making lifetime connections with the people for whom I've worked,  I love getting to know people.

 

I love to be challenged professionally,  and continue to push myself to be my best.
