When Gary goes North to visit family and friends, the Philly/SNJ area gets lucky.

Why?  you ask …..

Because if you can’t get to Key West,
Key West has come to you!


Gary has performed at A Taste Of Key West
for 2 shows – a Friday night and a Saturday night – for the last several years.

This year, the Friday night show on June 28th was even more special
because Gary performed with The Mango Men!


Yes, it had rained and chased everyone inside.
But a well-know saying held true:


They rocked and entertained for almost 4 solid hours!
It was exceptional!

There were a few surprises too.

Like Gary doing The Who.
Just goes to show what a gifted and versatile musician he is.


Before I go on to Saturday night,
I’d like to introduce you to the gracious owners/operators of A Taste of Key West,
George and Eve Dougherty.


They are the nicest folks who truly care about the customers they serve every day.
They hire the best-of-the-best when it comes to employees.
The food is quite good as are the tropical concoctions they make.

The entire establishment is based on Key West.
The decor, the names of each dish on the menu, the wooden deck overlooking the water,
and the entertainment.

A Taste of Key West is located at 401 S. Swarthmore Avenue, Ridley Park, Pa 19078.
Their phone number is 484- 497-8007.

If you’re in the area, stop on by and say Hi!

Saturday night, June 29th, was Gary alone, spinning his yarns, strumming his guitar,
mesmerizing and entertaining the crowd as only a classic troubadour can.
And the best part?
It was an absolutely beautiful night!
Warm with low humidity and a caressing breeze that kept all the little outdoor critters at bay.
So the show was an outdoor event!
Gary just controls the stage like he was born to it.
Any song that was requested, he performed.
He is such an accomplished musician with a huge command of his craft.
He just blew the audience away!
So much so that when Gary took a break around 9 PM,
the fireworks went off!
Yes, real fireworks!
From center-city Philly, but the timing couldn’t have been more perfect!
And, before we knew it, the night was over.
Gary kept the crowd entertained for hours on end and time just slipped  away.
Now I’m going to go out on a limb and tell you something I’m certain you already know.
And….that’s that I think Gary is one of the most gifted entertainers around.
So, if you’re in Key West … or around the Philly area every end of June … please
stop what you’re doing and spend some time with Gary.
You will not be sorry.  As a matter of fact, you’ll probably spend the best few
hours of your life enjoying one of the best shows around!
So, until next time……


We love Key West and want you to love it too!
