Greg McGhee is a tribal member, youth counselor, and mentor at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians in Atmore, AL. Greg is also a drumming instructor. He teaches drumming to five, male mentees. They love learning about their culture while also learning about drumming. The Club members also enjoy the company and have a good time when they get together!

Greg began drumming when he was a kid. He always loved the sounds of drumming at the local powwow. When he got older, he joined the powwow club and began to drum. He enjoys teaching drumming because of the culture and history that is behind it. He wants youth to know their culture and heritage and what better way to learn than through drumming!
