November 14, 2006: Greg Kihn Releases Live CD

As a motivational and keynote speaker, and event emcee, Greg relates to, motivates and captivates the audience with real-world and, often times, hysterical tales from over 30-years of overindulgent Rock Star exploits and escapades.  Regardless of the audience, from Casino appearance, university commencement, corporate golf outing, sports hospitality event, corporate function, trade show, and VIP meet-and-greets, Greg has been delivering customized and memorable appearances and speaking engagements for years.  

Greg weaves engrossing and elaborate messaged tales about his Rock and Roll adventures, encompassing those times he's been at the top of the charts or the bottom of the barrel that everyone can relate to.  Greg's presentation drives home messages of innovation, creativity, stick-to-itiveness, passion, determination, motivation, perseverance, teamwork, leadership, ambition, goals and ultimately success.  Greg uses audience interaction, humor and even music and song to inspire and motivate.  As a successful businessman who continually takes on, adapts to and conquers every challenge, Greg has learned much from his life's adventures.  Greg shares with and inspires others about what drives and motivates him now in his current successes and future endeavors and how the audience can get the most out of life and career.

The Greg Kihn Band, with Greg's son Ry on lead guitar, performs nationally, as well as in the Bay Area, at special private corporate, association, conference, trade show, and sporting events.  Countless loyal fans of Greg's radio program and music operate and are employed by many of the Silicon Valley's leading corporations and the Greg Kihn Band is frequently tapped to perform at events as diverse as the company Christmas Party, annual sales meetings, product roll-out ceremonies, to the company employee family picnic.  

Greg and Ry recently co-hosted Guitar Player Magazine's 2006 Guitar Hero's Competition, which featured performances by some of the best undiscovered guitarists from all over the world, all of who converged on San Francisco's Great American Music Hall to compete.  Greg, with an impressive list of recording artists, also recently performed at TroopFest 2006, in Alameda, California, on the aircraft carrier museum hangar deck for 3,000 servicemen and their families during an five-hour benefit festival and concert.  The event, sponsored by the American Red Cross' Operation: Care and Comfort, a charity near-and-dear to Greg's heart, raises funds to send care packages to US Troops abroad.  

In October, Greg was a special presenter at the Technical Excellence and Creativity (TEC) Awards, which also took place in San Francisco.   Considered the Academy Awards of the professional recording industry, the TEC Awards honors the best record producers and engineers in the world.
