Holidays 2017 - November 19, 2017

What's up Peoples?


Thanks for clicking and reading the news Feed. I'm just back from a ten day run in China which had it's ups and downs. The first leg in Beijing was action packed and the band ( Jeff Gilman, Kenny Leonore, Nico Mege) had our first stop at the Bricks in Beijing. This place sounds great and real music fans show up!  Nico had another engagement so we had Fiach, a great drummer from Ireland fill in with us and lay down some serious groove. Saturday the 11th saw the GLB at a Craft Beer Festival at the East Hotel in Beijing. Xian bar has added a container which they renovated into a very cool bar and will be open all winter. The party was focusing on local craft beer and positive vibes and Teddy Strings and his band tore the place up also! That night, we moved back downtown to a place called Good Bait and played another show well into the night! Massive party... 

Unfortunately, I caught a bad throat infection after Beijing and had to postpone my two shows in Shanghai at the Chair Club. Spent most of my time in SH at the hospital... I'm ok tho almost back to 110%.... I will be back there in '18 to get those shows done and do a proper Shanghai hang... thanks to everyone for the support and for reading... Happy Holidays to you and yours. See you in the Streets!  

Thanks! - April 23, 2013

The GLB would like to thank Everyone at the House of Blues and Jazz in Shanghai, China for another amazing experience of 5 memorable months as the house band of one of the best bars in Shanghai! Xie Xie! We'd also like to thank the players that joined us: Phillip Young (keys and sax), Mike Null (guitar and vocals), Sean Higgins (keys) and Peter Benitez (keys). Thanks for killing it when we needed you and being such great pros and cool people... Flying into Boston,MA this Spring and I'm very excited to get back in the groove in Beantown...

Back to China October 2012! - August 31, 2012

We are very excited to announce that the Greg Luttrell Band will return to the House of Blues and Jazz in Shanghai, China beginning October 2nd, 2012 and into 2013! For our 4th trip as house band to this amazing club, the HoBJ has agreed to sign on a special guest - Mike Null on guitar and vocals!! Mike is well known in Shanghai and Beijing as well as having performed all over the USA. He's a good friend of mine and we've been scheming on how to put a band together for a while now so, here goes!! We've also added Steve Bellevile on bass -a killer. Steve plays in Mike Null's Blues Band and so this residency is really a GLB/Mike Null Blues Band mash up. Here's how it lines up:

Steve Belleville - bass

Tony Hall- drums -vocals

Greg Luttrell -vocals guitar harmonica

Mike Null - vocals guitar

Phillip Young - sax and keyboards....

Yep, that's right~PHIL IS BACK!!! We are excited to experience more Chinese culture and share some music and I'm personally fired up to be traveling with good friends and making music with such great players. I'm very grateful.  So it's the Greg Luttrell Band featuring Mike Null at House of Blues and Jazz this fall and winter.
