Gregg Deakin, Program Manager & Director Starting his career as a professional full time musician (known as Cool Jo), Gregg jumped ship from ‘night work’ to the security of Onstage shortly after its inception in 1984. Over three decades later, and Gregg is the man who knows everyone and everything there is to know about show-biz.  Gregg’s specialty is residency and venue programming, and his exceptional skills have earned his venues the title of "Entertainment Venue of the Year" many years running.  Gregg’s longest standing venue has been with him (and Onstage) exclusively for over 22 years – a testament to a job well done.  Gregg is considered a legend in the biz, and between us – he can still rock a microphone.
