Gary plays all kinds of music from blues and jazz, to rock, folk and classical, but has a special love for high-energy big band jazz in the "Buddy Rich style". He is an active performer and personally owns high quality Soprano, Alto & Tenor saxes. Gary plays daily with multiple local performing bands and is equally comfortable playing with a 17-piece jazz band, a folk combo, or small pit orchestra.
