Gary’s story

As a child, I remember being mesmerized by the music, performers, singers, and bands of the earlier "GOLDEN ERA" as I called it, that was so intense for me that I literally missed the Beatle era of my generation. You see, my father was a director of big bands in the '50s & '60s. My father, a reed player during the end of WW2 then with Harry James, Jimmy Dorsey, etc. started me on this path of singing in my dad's band since I was 7. Who was my inspiration? Well, Frank Sinatra of course. I started listening to Frank from day one.

Little did I know this would lead to a path of an unthinkable dream later in life.

I remember as teenagers, my brother and I for hours would listen to Sinatra especially the album "Sinatra at the Sands" in which I thought was his best live performance and even though I was temporarily distracted by being in my family band "The Allen's" (BELOW) in the '70s, keeping up with what was current at the time, I still remained in showbiz, on stage, off stage, in front of the scene’s behind the scenes, went into other business but could not escape performing these songs, so, in the early 90’s the thought occurred to me, I didn't want to be 80 years old and miss this passion that has been haunting me for years. I packed up my bags and moved to Las Vegas to fulfill a dream. The dream was to keep the spirit alive and pass it onto the generation of today.

DID YOU KNOW GARY WAS A TEEN IDOL IN A FAMILY GROUP DURING THE 70s WITH A SLEW OF TV APPEARANCES, RADIO, AND TEEN MAGAZINES?

THE BEGINING

Anthony grew up in Los Angeles in a musical family headed by his father, a big-band director. Music came naturally to the third of 11 children. Anthony in his youth found himself traveling with his father around the country singing in his father's bands

After Denver, Gary's father made a pit stop in Las Vegas for the summer. Gary auditioned for a show along with his brother called "Vegas Beat '68" and for the first time got his professional stage performance impersonating Frank Sinatra, creating long time friendships with professional performers such as former "Miss Nevada" Sandy Kastel making the charts with her latest CD today.
