Green Rose Acoustic is Rich Greene and Gary Rose, two singer/guitarists who perform a wide range of musical styles and have entirely too much fun doing so.


Gary and Rich met in the summer of 1978 while attending SUNY Geneseo and were soon making music together. They are founding members of the legendary Rochester cover band, "Reporter." Rich still plays with Reporter. and Gary performs with the equally legendary "Skycoasters." From time to time, Gary and Rich are joined by drummer extraordinaire Steve Krauss, also a member of Reporter and Geneseo pal from way back.

The Green Rose Acoustic playlist is rather extensive, derived from the common musical experiences of guys who have been playing together for a long time. The songs are delivered in a manner that is true to the spirit of the originals, with an ineluctable injection of the boys’ personalities, competent guitar work, graceful harmonies and, as mentioned earlier, a good amount of fun.
