70's Hits Acoustic Guitar from Orlando, FL - Will travel up to 10 miles

$225 - $1000 per event
A native to Jacksonville, Florida; Gary was raised in Miami, Florida.
His family is deep in musical talent. At age 12, he took an interest in learning to play the guitar. Although he was raised in a Christian Family, he had the opportunity to be exposed to a diverse group of artists, from Motown to The Beatles; The Mama's & The Papas; Neil Diamond; to Strauss and Mozart. This led to a strong interest to write his own songs with artists such as; Aerosmith, the Beatles and Buddy Holly being major influences. It was at age 14 when He played his first "gigs" in Miami! In the mid 80's, Gary moved to Nashville where he formed the rock band, "Atticus Finch". The band gained success and notoriety via local Nashville radio stations and extensive live performances. Over the next few years, he began to fine tune his songwriting and vocal style; as well as developing a natural, powerful stage presence. Gary could also be seen performing in numerous duo and trio vocal groups in and around the Nashville area. As a result, he developed an extensive song catalog (With over 300 songs!); that he presently uses in his repertoire. His love for music and entertaining has blossomed into a well-rounded and experienced talent.

Upon his return to Florida, he started his own family; built a recording studio; and has produced other artists to help them develop their own sound. During the last few years, Gary has been performing in duos; as well as his own solo acoustic act throughout North and Central Florida.

Gary is available for a variety of live performance situations; clubs, parties, business functions, etc. Either as a solo or with his duo band "Hidden In Plain Sight", with percussionist/vocalist Sarajane Pennington. When inquiring about booking, you can request him as a Solo or with his duo... Check out video section to view live clips! With Gary's versatile repitore of music and his experience and talent make him your go to guy for hours of entertainment!
