An extraordinary blues guitarist, Greg devoted his entire life to music. Over the years, Greg traveled the world and played with the best of the best, among them Freddie King and The Allman Brothers Band. He loved playing on the Florida Suncoast and for many years has been the lead guitar player for one of the area’s local bands, Kettle of Fish. He has also played with Rock Bottom, Sarasota Slim, Chris Anderson, Dan Electro and the Silvertones, Pat Ramsey, The Billy Rice Band, The Venturas, Damon Fowler, and too many others to mention.

His kindness and talent touched everyone he encountered. A local legend, the sounds of Greg Poulos are famous here in Sarasota, but his kind nature was memorable as well. He had a swagger, a coolness, a bright smile. So many will miss him.
