He studied piano under his mother’s guidance at age 7 and was playing Rachmaninoff by 12 before giving it up entirely, preferring voice and acting instead. Acting was a wonderful escape and Gary made his theatre debut at age 14 playing minor sleuth Archie Carstairs in the murder mystery comedy Home Sweet Homicide

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
