Gary Puckett & The Union was one of the most successful musical groups of the sixties. Gary's unmistakable signature voice garnered six consecutive gold records and sold more records in 1968 than any other recording act, including The Beatles. Gary is one of a few artists whose first five releases went gold. Not even Elvis accomplished this. He has played a command performance at the White House for Prince Charles and Princess Anne by special invitation of the President. Gary has also made more than 50 television appearances and has performed in a Made for TV movie. PBS will be airing a special in August 2001 in which Gary appeared.
Their hit single "Young Girl" was reissued by popular request in England where it reached number one and achieved a Silver Record Award for the second time. This is a full six years after the song was initially released. The Gary Puckett and The Union Gap's "Greatest Hits" album is one of CBS's best selling "Collector's Series" albums today.
Gary was a founding member of the incredibly successful "Happy Together" Tour, playing to sold out performances in over 100 cities nationwide. Gary was invited to tour with the Monkees on their national reunion tour, which established itself as the major box office success of the 1986 touring season. Today, Gary continues to tour nationally & internationally, has a new album out now, "GARY PUCKETT - LIVE", and has recently released his first ever Chrismas CD, entitled "At Christmas".
