Gary Regina has been a professional
musician for over 30 years.
As comfortable with straight-ahead jazz as he is with world beat,
hip-hop, blues, swing, rock or funk, Gary's abilities transcend
many styles and genres, illustrating an incredible diversity of
Gary led his own original bands for 18 years, whose styles ranged
from acid jazz and new age to world beat. A pioneer of the world
beat movement from the late 70s, Gary continues to incorporate world
rhythms and influences into his compositions today.
Currently, Gary performs all over the United States and Australia,
focusing on his multi-instrumental solo performance, which utilizes
looping technology. Playing a wide variety of instruments (including
woodwinds, ethnic flutes, saxophones, percussion, guitar, wind synthesizer
and a drum machine), Gary creates unique soundscapes of trip-hop,
world and ambient music. Then, with incredible creativity (and a
little help from technology), the trance-like rhythmical sounds
gradually build, looping on top of each other, until you are sure
there are ten musicians! Your ears will have a hard time reconciling
what they hear with what your eyes see!
