Name: Gary Shlansky
Member: Lead Guitar
Hometown: Dallas, TX
From Gary – “Who does that?!”
Our guitar player, Gary, has been playing since he got his first guitar at age 8. His early music exposures included lessons with the Dallas University of the Blues and then playing in rock, jazz and even punk bands during his high school years. While he credits his biggest early music inspiration to Metallica, his music journey shifted dramatically when he met Redwine at age 18... catching a passion for country music, especially the Texas version. He's been developing his impressive country chops ever since and was recently featured in a music video for Six Guage's "original single, "keep me wanting more.".
