Most audiences have to do a double-take when they see Gregory Wolfe hit the stage as Rod Stewart, and they do it again once they hear him sing. Covering all the hits and ballads, Gregory is as close to Rod Stewart as a tribute can get.
Born in Michigan and spending his youth working hard, Gregory transferred to living in California in the mid 1980’s. After winning contests for his ability to look and sound like Rod Stewart, he took to exploring the idea of creating a complete tribute showcasing the artist’s long illustrious career.
Mr. Wolfe has since traveled around the World performing concerts, events and venues. He is as comfortable in front of a four-piece band as he is a large orchestra. His ability to stir up the audience to dance – while dancing on stage with Rod’s signature moves – is what crowds and fans love and remember.
In 2012, Gregory was going through treatment for cancer. As a survivor, his talent and passion drives him to continue doing what he loves the most: Entertaining. (Unfortunately, this is also similar Rod Stewart himself, who was diagnosed and underwent surgery in 2000 for thyroid cancer. Scarily enough Rod’s resulting surgery threatened his iconic voice, and he had to re-learn how to sing again. Rod has been active in raising funds for charities to find cures for all forms of cancer.)
Having played packed and sold out shows in California, Arizona, Washington, Texas, Maryland, Georgia, Iowa, Missouri, and all the way to exotic Singapore; Gregory Wolfe is ready for more!
Performing as Rod Stewart, Gregory also skillfully blends in a mix of other popular songs from the pop, soul, Motown, and blues genres. The final mix is his recipe for getting the audience on its feet.
“I refuse to let the crowd just sit there,” he says. “No matter who they are, I make sure they’ll get into it. If I’m having fun, usually the crowd reciprocates and has a good time!”
Talented and professional, Gregory Wolfe as Rod Stewart is a great tribute to decades of memorable music. He gets the audience dancing and singing along to the all the fast, slow, and popular hits. His show is perfect for special events, casinos, performing arts centers, nightclubs, and large festivals.
