What started as a hobby in 1959 became a life time career in the music business for Greg Thomas. Over a 40 year span he was a musician with some of Calgary's most popular groups. That experience opened the door for him to manage other popular Western Canadian artists. In 1978 Greg joined Studio City Musical as an agent and rose to  be the company Vice President and Partner. With offices in Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver, Studio City grew to be the largest rock agency on the Prairies.

Seven years later he set out on his own with Greg Thomas Productions and concentrated on providing entertainment to the Calgary corporate community. It was during this time Patricia Conroy talked him into booking her shows and that set the course for Greg to commit to the country music industry. He became the founder and President of The Key Entertainment Group which to become the largest country music agency in Canada before it was sold in 2005.

During this time Greg was the chief organizer and driving force behind "Say Hay" an historic fund raising effort that not only raised close to two million dollars for  drought stricken farmers in Western Canada but earned Greg and his group three Canadian Country Music Awards including; Country Event of the Year, Television Special of the Year and the prestigious Humanitarian of the Year Award. Greg received another Humanitarian of The Year Award in the 90's  for his participation in The Song For Brent which has established a group home in Lethbridge to care for brain injured teenagers.

Greg is a member and Director of The Canadian Association of Fairs and Exhibitions, an active member of The International Associations of Fairs, The Rocky Mountain Association of Fairs and The Florida Federation of Fairs
