Deb and Gary met at work and first performed music together in 2011 at an office holiday party. Soon after, they began playing at a variety of venues --including wineries, cafes, private
clubs, and bars -- and eventually struck upon the name “Deb and Gary” for their new alliance. The duo is known for textured vocal harmonies and complementary guitar playing styles, and audiences have appreciated their unique set lists and musical arrangements.
Key crowd pleasers include their interpretations of Eleanor Rigby, Lola, Savoy Truffle, and Big Empty. Gary’s band Rocket Transfer Warehouse released three albums from which the duo
draws original material.
