About The GRK Collective

The GRK Collective (formally known as Afterglow Acoustic) is a classy acoustic act suitable for all event types.
Acoustic duo
Public liability insurance of £10 million

The GRK Collective is a group of musicians making up two acoustic groups, the GRK Duo and the GRK trio. Formally known as “Afterglow Acoustic”, the GRK Duo have a plethora of experience after 3 years of trading under the name Afterglow. From weddings and birthdays to corporate events and even residency work in the EU, the pair have a passion for performing. The duo specialise in providing a relaxed and high class atmosphere to any event, making the act suitable for most event types but in particular the day time aspect of weddings and wine bars. The GRK Trio is a new lineup to the GRK collective, having the same vocalist and guitarist but with added percussion to give your event a more upbeat and dance feel. The trio specialise in creating a fun atmosphere which is suited to evening entertainment but can also be suited to afternoon engagements such as a drinks reception. Both groups cover a range of music from the 1950’s to present day and are always updating their repertoire. Finally, the GRK Collective are very passionate about their music and always aim to provide a great booking experience by going above and beyond to stay in contact with you, cater to your needs and to cater to the clients needs.

What a wonderful duo! Georgia and Jackson we’re absolutely wonderful and knew exactly what music we wanted! Georgia was so friendly and was super quick at responding to any questions we had. They were also very flexible and accommodating of any requests. Glad we found them!

Latimernic, 4 years ago

I was lucky enough to watch this very talented duo at a local talent promotion on Saturday night. The duo performed a range of genres from modern day to timeless classics keeping the audience engaged and entertained all evening. The beautiful tones and ability of Georgia's voice shone through, throughout the performance.Accompanid by her talented partner who again is a very talented musician in his own right. The audience participation was engaged and encouraged. I would definitely recommend this duo to anyone, you will not be disappointed.
