Gary Hollis

Vocals, Keyboards, and Acoustic Guitar

Ever since his first gig at the age of 12,  Gary realized that he could get paid for just playing music and having fun.  This began a long and exciting journey into the world of music. Gary was a music major at UNT when he decided that it was time for him to get out there and do it for real.  He traveled across the country,  playing music through most of the 1970's.   But living out of a suitcase was starting to lose it's appeal.  So, in 1978 he moved to Hollywood and began a 12-year career as a recording engineer - working at both Capital Records and MCA Records. He was fortunate enough to work with and learn from some of the great names in music.. such as Steve Miller, Bob Seger, John Fogerty, Pat Benatar and others,  In 1990 he moved back to the DFW area, where he started another chapter in his musical life.  After recently making a tough decision to leave a band that he has played with for the last 5 years, Gary has now found a new musical home with "The ToneMasters."  

From Gary:  In every band I've ever played in there were always some moments where great memories were being made.  It's really cool to be able to sit back and think about all the great times I was lucky enough to be a part of.  When you get the chance.. come see The ToneMasters and become a part of another great memory.
