It has been a year since my prostate surgery and I'm back on the road again with a new zeal and appreciation for life after cancer. 

We are routing our trip From April to September with Alaska as the farthest destination from home.

Carolyn is scheduling all the "play" stops along the way. Hope to see you somewhere, sometime!

Successfully Completed the AquaHot Certification School in Colorado!

These units are hot water production diesel burners for interior heat, engine cross heating, and domestic hot water production.

April, 2017
OK! So, lately, I went to Recreational Vehicle Certified Technician school in Clearwater, FL for ten weeks. I stayed at Macdill AFB and played at the Seascape Club four times while I stayed there on every other Saturday night. They really appreciate the patriotic music there.
 Now, I am not only Registered with RVDA and RVIA, but Certified!. I have 5 years to get to the Master title. We travel in our 45 foot Monaco Executive all across the country sharing my music to all who would listen, selling my CD, and can finally feel confidant in affecting repairs to our coach! When you put a house on wheels and travel across the country, well, you can only imagine what goes wrong.

About Me

Sometimes life seems like a whirlwind. All of a sudden, there it is - holding all your interest - but soon goes back to dust. So it is in the life of a musician, one day the whole world seems to be watching, then in a blink of an eye, the whole world is looking somewhere else.

I’ve been told the story of the “Millwright or the Poet” and found it only too true with most musicians that were Soldiers first and musicians second. There was a point of necessity in deciding what path to choose early on in life. I chose being the Soldier. Finally, the day has come that I can be the musician.

Who knows where it will all lead. My new journey has begun and adventures await me. My intent is to share the gift of music that God has given me as I embark on this new direction He is taking me. My hope is that it will not be like a “whirlwind” and that what I do will be enjoyed by audiences for a long time.

Slowing down to finish up the second album is the current story and helping family with construction projects, granddaughter graduating HS and moving on to college, and more. It has been a exciting and time consuming. I do plan to get back out there more in the future.


I am also a member of 24/7 Casting in Orlando, FL..  You can visit my site at www.247cast.com/garyleewingard.

    Gary Lee was perfect for our small party on the deck of the beach house. He entertained us with stories, and played all our favorites, as well as some excellent original tunes. He was polite and punctual and very easy. His wife, Carolyn was delightful and a great addition to our party. He made our birthday party all the more special. And, he can really play!

    o After several complete listenings, I must say I am proud of you! This CD is masterful. Your vocals and the production of the whole thing are amazing, a big improvement over the 6-song EP (which I also like). As always, I love your guitar work, lead and rhythm. You write wonderful melodies. I'm hoping I can reach that point someday. The songs tie together as a theme, as you intended. Where did the bass, keyboards, drums, and horns come from? They add great depth to a very well- written group of songs. I guess I'm saying I really like your CD, and I can't wait to take it back to my home state of PA so friends and family there can give a listen.
