Meet the Band
I’m Glenn, Tone Tailors’ Store Manager and Head of Operations. I was born in Lancaster, but grew up in the Reading area. My father is a well-known trumpet player and was a music teacher up until his retirement, so I grew up around music. I’ve spent most of my life around guitars, working in a few music stores and playing in many bands. Aside from working at Tone Tailors, I play music professionally and have been lucky to do so for a few years now.
Guitar and a little bit of bass.
What bands do you play in or have in the past?
I currently play in a few projects: thequietcampaign, an original indie rock band, Bad Slice, a cover band, Stephanie Grace, a pop-country singer/songwriter, Justin & Glenn, an acoustic duo, and a Reading pick-up band called the Pretzel City Ramblers.
Other hobbies you enjoy?
Guitar-related activities take up most of my time. But, you may occasionally find me shredding a course in Mario Kart. I’m also a very big movie buff.
I have a particular affinity for Asian food, especially Thai. Mexican food comes in at a close second.
Top 5 pieces of gear:
Currently, my Gibson Slash Signature Les Paul in November Burst, Suhr Badger 35, Strymon Flint, Drybell Unit 67, and Empress Tape Delay.
Holy grail gear item? Bucket list item?
The “Holy Grail” has gotta be a true-blue ’59 or ‘60 Les Paul. I can’t say that it’s a “bucket list” item, as I’ll surely never have one. In that respect, I’ll go with a nice reissue of a Les Paul from that era.
Top 5 bands
Yikes, tough one. I’ll give a solid three instead: Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Allman Brothers Band, Steely Dan.
Best concert you’ve seen? Or experience?
Another tough one. I recently saw Steely Dan perform their album “Aja” in it’s entirety. That was a pretty religious experience.
Cool local bands you think everyone should know about?
First, a shameless plug for thequietcampaign, which is an original band I’m lucky to be a part of and that you should totally check out. Now that that’s out of the way… I’ll shout out some local bands from the Reading area: And You, Brutus?, Jon Smith’s Voyages, Beautiful Red Panda, Dead Belly, Die Tired, and Psuedo Seal. All great bands.
