He attended Sharples High School till he was 16, leaving to do a variety of jobs in the building trade. But music was always Garys first love; his first performance was as a singer at the age of 14 on a holiday camp.

He soon taught himself to play the guitar and joined a band at the age of 17. Between the ages of 18- 23 he performed solo and in various bands on the road, first in the U.K. then abroad, where he continued singing in bars and hotels.

On his return to the UK, Gary applied for and appeared on Stars In Their Eyes and after winning his heat, went on to win a proud second place in the Grand Final. Gary then went on to join the touring show The Great Legends Of Rock, in which he has done a theatre and concert hall tour of the U.K, two tours of New Zealand and a tour of Ireland.

Gary has also appeared before various celebrity audiences at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Hilton Hotels - London & Glasgow, and the Chesa Vegria Club in St. Moritz, and many more (he counts Ivana Trump among his admirers).

In between his appearances at Blackpool, he also travels up and down the country performing at both corporate and private functions and along side various other performers on a number of the Royal Caribbean Liners, for 4- 6 days at a time. Gary performs at all three Butlins camps on a regular basis. To date, as well as usual musical commitments, Gary also performs his own theatre show Hot August Nights at various venues around the country.
