Gary "Papa G" Young



Gary "Papa G" Young has been playing music for over 30 years with the saxophone
as his primary instrument. His playing evokes the styles of artists like Clarence Clemons
and David Sanborn. Gary has added other instruments to his arsenal,  including the
flute, harmonica, guitar and his singing has evolved into a soulful style reminiscent
of Bruce Springsteen meets Joe Cocker.

Gary is also currently a member of  Nurse Ratchet, a classic rock cover band. He is a
fearless performer who enjoys sitting in as a guest musician with numerous bands
including Stompbox, Michael Nitro Band, Timebomb and Christmas at The Blooze Band.
He has also added his saxophone wailings to several recording sessions for other
groups.

Gary showcases his multi-instrument and vocal talents in The Community Service Band
and enjoys the more intimate settings and connection with fans performing as part
of a duo.
