Lovin' Gregory Nalbone

On April 21, 2010 Gregory Nalbone performed at the Hearts & Voices fundraiser for the Imperial Court of New York City. The patrons of Birdland and Iguana have also been treated to his vocal talents on a frequent basis. The move to New York City in 1991 from New Jersey when he was paying his bills by bartending and dancing turned out to be great exposure for him—literally—his image was requested by many a topnotch photographer. As a serious student of both acting and voice this proved to be a great boon for him and New York was the beneficiary! Nalbone is well known on the cabaret circuit and his modeling career has brought him into contact with the best among photographers among them the late Bill Costa, Antoine Verglas, Thomas Synnamon, Reed Massengill and Steven Meisel.

This prolific modeling experience has brought Gregory into the pages of Italian Vogue, Men's Health, Exercise for Men Only, Manner Aktuell, Details, Playboy, Glamour and Dreamboys among others. This generous man will be on hand on May 11 at Prohibition to greet his friends and fans to encourage support of POZ’s efforts for AIDS Walk New York. Gregory is the first to come on board this year. Gregory has been singing up a storm in the last year. Be sure to catch his show. Gregory debuts in Love is in the Air: Songs of Romance & Passion at The Metropolitan Room on Sunday, February 6th at 7:00 PM,
