The Palace Theatre hosts Grapplin' Greg: The Story of Greg Bell on December 17 at 7:30 PM.


Tickets | $22-$37


Join us for the documentary premiere of Grapplin' Greg: The Story of Greg Bell – an uncensored and (mostly) true look into one of the Capital Region’s most venerable live music lovers and concert promoters! The evening will also feature a live performance by Eastbound Jesus.


Greg Bell of Guthrie/Bell Productions has been a staple in the Albany music community for three decades. Starting in the early 90s, he ended up on a journey that has led him to give countless new bands from the region a stage to play on. For bands from around the country, Bell has made Albany a stop to look forward to – always with the support and enthusiasm you might get more often from a fan, than a promoter.


‘Grapplin’ Greg’ will tell the story of Greg Bell, from how he fell in love with live music, to booking a couple small bar shows for friends, to events at venues like The Palace Theatre, Albany Armory and beyond. Greg Bell doesn’t just book shows, he has helped nurture a music scene that truly feels like a community.
