GARY BIEBER, Singer
GARY BIEBER, Singer
Gary has always loved music .... many styles of music. When young, he played percussion instruments in the school band and consequently, took up the drums. Later, he got the 'itch' to write songs. Since he couldn't write songs on the drums, he taught himself to play the guitar. Within a few years he wrote about 25 songs. His influences were Barry Manilow, John Denver, The Beatles, The Eagles, Eddie Rabbitt, and many more.....all great song writers and entertainers themselves. As he tells it, his wife (Jeannette) became his biggest fan as he was just too shy and insecure to perform in front of a crowd. One night, Jeannette encouraged him to sing karaoke at a pizza place – primarily threatening "If he didn’t get up there and sing, she was going to hit him with that pitcher of beer.” With that, needless to say, he did get up, and eventually sang two songs. It wasn't until a couple of years later that he started acquiring Karaoke disks and equipment and soon after decided it was time to take another step forward and tried out for Seniors on Stage where he has fit in very nicely. SOS Director, Jeanie Baker, thinks he’ll only grow his talent in this venue! He's starting to "step out of his box" as an entertainer. He's got a great voice!
