Welcomes young up-and-comer, Dmitry Willis, into the fray


October 2015 – Eleventh Ward guitarist of 4 years, Greg Llewellyn recently decided to step away from the music scene to take time to focus more on his career, new home and family. Greg’s immense talent and passion for music will be missed amongst the ranks of his bandmates, but his influence will be felt as they continue to push on after adding lead guitarist Dmitry Willis.

“I’ve been a fan of Greg’s since the first time I heard him play at an open mic in Hoboken. Every time I wrote a song it seemed like he had the perfect riff or solo to accompany it.
