OSIRIS Magazine went to spend some time with Gary, and we left there feeling wonderful. He is laid back and a beautiful being with the best persona. Here are his words to us…
“There’s nothing … better than listening to music. You can make someone feel good by the music you play. So I just create the mood. There’s’ always a song for someone. I try to tell a story with music and its not scripted. But its all about the positive and love. Music is for the mind, body, and soul. And everybody needs love.
I grew up in Boston, and I feel good that I am able to play music in my community — in the community I grew up in. Back in the 80’s on Thursday nights at the Sky Cap, I played at all the nightclubs — even at Slades(night club) back in ‘89 when they reopened. I DJ In Worcester, MA. [On] ‘The quiet Storm’ in the 90’s over at UMass I played albums. Albums have the true sound. As a teenager I would go out and end up being the DJ at parties because that was me.
James brown was my music idol when I was growing up. He maintained the riots in Boston at the old Boston Garden. He would perform, and there was so much love in the air.
Discipline…you have to have that and observe things in life. True artists observe and listen. Things could be so much better if you just listen to the story lines and the messages in the music…in life. I value life, and my experiences have made me the person I am.”
OSIRIS Magazine left 101.3 Big City radio station with an overwhelming feeling of positivity and warmth. Gary played Barry White… He played The Gap Band’s “Good Old Fashion Loving”, Switch “I Call Your Name” (one of my favorites) and many more. He is so funny, so cool — so real! Everything ran so smoothly. It is where he was meant to be, in the heart of music. We left there knowing that he loves spending time with family. And he stressed that it was all about his kids. And THEN his love for music.
