The Greg Billings Band is a continuation of a phenomenon that began when popular 80’s Florida band Romeo signed to Epic Records and released its first album after a name change to “Stranger”. Stranger continued to win huge crowds around the southeast with an electrifying stage show and a roster of fun and hook-laden original songs.
Greg Billings and Tom King were original members of Stranger and were there through it all. Greg’s vocal range and ability were equally matched by his magnetic personality and his ability to make everyone in the audience feel like a friend. Always impeccably dressed, Tom King thumped a solid and thunderous foundation of bass guitar and grooved cohesively with guitarist Ronnie Garvin and drummer John Price, augmented for 10 years by keyboardist Randy Holt who brought additional vocals, blues harp, and strong songwriting chops. Ronnie and John have sadly since passed away, leaving Greg and Tom as the remaining original members of the band.
