"Gates is one of the most extraordinary singers working in jazz today, the owner of a joyful baritone who has synthesized a host of influences—Eddie Jefferson, Jon Hendricks and Sinatra among them—and turned them into something uniquely his own."
L.A. Daily News

    GG sent me a FB message this morning expressing his gratitude for the birthday wishes sung for him. As he said just afterward, when you're in his "business," you don't get to take your birthdays off.

    Getting there early will be important if you want a seat, this is a very small intimate venue. We will be waiting for the doors to open in the lobby.

    The first time I saw him perform was when he opened for the up and coming Diana Krall at the Iron Horse Cafe. Even in comparison, I was still blown away by his style.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
