Gary Winston began playing music because of all the girls chasing the Beatles. However, the real motivation for his musical passion came from the immortal, musical genius of Jimi Hendrix. In 1979, he began touring with the band Manchester across the USA and Canada for the next decade. Gary then joined the CC Ryders Band as their guitars and lead vocalist. CC Ryders were the house band at the Hong Kong Grand Hyatt. They also toured Taiwan, Philippines, Bangkok and China.
Born and raised in the small historical town of Walla Walla, Washington, Gary is an active member of the community and Life Church. He spends much of his spare time with the youth throughout the area providing a positive role model through various outreach ministries, and of course, music.
Currently, Gary Winston is the lead vocalist and guitarist for his band, Gary Winston & The Real Deal, and is married to the band’s other lead vocalist, Ericka Ingersoll-Winston.
Grant Webb Band
The Grant Webb Band or “GWB” is an Idaho based band that plays shows throughout the Northwest. It was formed a few years back by front man “Grant Webb” and members. They are a great mixture of “Country” along with the popular growing “Red Dirt” music scene. When you see them perform live they have a strong “Southern Rock” and “Blues” influence along with some of the great fundamental “Country Twang” that started it all. They currently are a three piece band but will completely blow your mind with a great stage performance and the quick wit to play live that changes with every crowd. You can catch them playing various concert houses, dance floors, private parties and weddings. At just about every show you can catch the front man on some table or bar melting faces with some great guitar or harmonica leads. Their main drive is to play great written music, put on one of the best live shows around and keep building a great fan base of all ages. They strive to treat fans like friends and make everyone feel special at every show. If you haven’t been to one of their concerts yet, you don’t know what you’re missing!!!

I always find bio’s to be uncomfortable but here goes..I was born a small child, nothing has changed much. I first got paid to play music in 1965, the whole band got $20.00, nothing has changed much there either. I have played all over the western hemisphere, North, Central, and South America, Cuba, also out in the Pacific. In the old days I played with….Bo Diddly, the Shirells, Drifters, Coasters, Del Shannon, Little Anthony. The last 25 yrs. I’ve been in Spokane, WA. I played and recorded with all the best, upset all the rest. I still maintain my dazzling good looks and charming personality. OH! I love Walla Walla guitars. L. Frog Brown
