Biography

“Gary Allegretto is one of the classiest acts in the music business today, working only with the best backup musicians and taking the time to craft music noted not only for its quality but for its authenticity. …intimately honest, and what’s best about his genuineness is its completely offhand quality. If someone complains to you that they don’t make “real” blues records anymore - albums that sound like lost classics yet retain the freshness of an individual - play Many Shades of Blue for them.”

~Blues Revue Magazine

A down-to-earth guy with lifelong wanderlust and more than a few stories to tell, Gary Allegretto’s resume reads like a men’s adventure wish-list: back-country forest ranger, forest firefighter on a “Hotshot” crew, LA city firefighter, “bouncer” in a couple rough honky-tonks and a Blues bar, cowboy and ranch hand, beach lifeguard, white-water rafting guide… and traveling Bluesman. He’s a summa cum laude college graduate whose university recognizes him as an “Alumni of Distinction”. He’s also the founding director of Harmonikids, an organization that gives music therapy with harmonicas to special needs kids worldwide. Through it all, Gary can barely remember a time when Blues weren’t a powerful part of his life, and playing harmonica wasn’t as natural as his own voice. He started playing upon receiving his first harp at age 5 from his woodsman grandfather.
