About the event

Bio

Gary has been singing as far back as he can remember. He had a typical music experience growing up; singing in church and school choirs; playing in school band and orchestra. He spent countless hours as a kid developing his voice by singing with Beatles records and most anything he heard on the radio.

Over the years Gary's vocal influences have been Jim Morrison, Roger Daltrey, Cat Stevens, Ian Gillan, Ian Anderson, Harry Nilsson, Elton John, Dave Mason, David Bowie, and Chris Cornell.

The mish-mash of influences have provided Gary with a uniquely beautiful, rich, and powerful baritone voice  that is at home singing sweet and soulful ballads or rockin' it hard, loud and gritty.

Gary has an acoustic solo/duo act, Killing it Softly, and also fronts a hard rockin', in your face, good time rock n roll band, Dazzling Urbanites., aka The Durbs.

*******************************************************************************************************

In his early 20’s Gary joined Silent Knight as their lead singer.  It was with Silent Knight that he began developing his songwriting skills, composing half of the band’s material. Since then, Gary has been in several cover and original bands over the years as a frontman performing on lead vocals, rhythm guitar, and keyboards.

In 1997, Gary, featuring his original tunes Violent Night and Regular Joe, took second place in Northern Nevada's search for Best Singer/Songwriter, a competition promoted by a local Reno radio station.

In 2013, after a 7 year hiatus from performing, Gary decided to put together his own band and formed the Heaters, playing blues and classic rock. Although the Heaters were a great band and enjoyed local success, Gary and drummer Steve desired something more unique and harder rocking, and put together the Dazzling Urbanites.

Gary has performed solo at Stillwater in Dana Point, Boscoes in Lake Forest, House of Blues in Anaheim, and several private and charity events. He is currently booking dates in South Orange and North San Diego counties.

The Durbs have been and can be experienced all over the OC in such places like The World Famous Doll Hut, Boscoes, Knuckleheads, Karman Club, and the Orange County Fair.
