New York state native Gary Calvaneso has performed in ensemble settings with his band for over a decade. Over the years the band played to sold out packed houses and were also the opening act for well-known famous musical groups. Stage shows included performances with Elvis's band in the broadway production of Elvis Forever.

Now a solo act, Gary enjoys performing at private parties, country clubs and public venues. He specializes in classic rock and pop hits from the 50's thru 90’s and beyond.

He performs on his Acoustic-Electric Guitar and incorporates the use of a Vocal Harmonizer and other hi-tech devices to produce a perfect blend of instrumentation that makes his sound full and engaging.

Song selections are tailored to each venue. For easy listening venues, he performs hits by classic soft rock artists. For dance parties, he plays up-tempo classic rock and country songs that will get everyone on their feet! Gary is also known as “The Tribute Man” for the wide variety of artists he covers.

To Dine or Dance, Gary’s music adds the missing ingredient for any occasion.
