Gary E Grierson


Bass Guitar, Other Percussion, Keyboard.


I started out in 64 playing in a band with my cousins. Since then my guitar has dragged me all over the country, giving me the chance to learn to love all kinds of music. I have grand ole opry experience, and have worked around Flint during the Mount Holly days opening for most of the Michigan rock acts.For over 20 years I operated a music store in Gaylord Mi. Most of the pro players in the north brought they're guitars in for regular check-ups and coffie and music news/gigs and hence the handle,"doc guitar". I have played with or opened for several country, rock, blues and motown artists. My gospel experience was with the Grand Blanc Community Curch for around 8 years.
