Band with Matt Spong known as Colour, singing backup and playing the Congas.  He started playing music while attending Holy Cross Elementary and playing in their Drum and Bugle Corp.  He departed Colour in order to get a job, and buy a car, and didn’t have time to do all the things that he desired without an income.  After H.S. he continued to play music and, during his senior year at Delaware State, he joined-up with Rudy Fenwick, Keyboardist, and his Band to complete their tour in Nova Scotia.  After graduating from Delaware State and moving to Rochester, NY, to work for the Kodak Co., he stopped playing music altogether.  After 20 years at Kodak, and the passing of his Mother (2001), he decided to start playing again. Gary took lessons while in Atlanta, GA, studying Latin Jazz under the guidance of Luis Gonzales, a local Conguero.  Gary returned to Dover in Dec. 2005 and, subsequently, joined the Tad Jones Harbor Town Band as their Drummer.
