Gary is best known for "Where Everybody Knows Your Name", the theme from the hit television series "Cheers". Thanks to that song- as well as the themes to "Punky Brewster" and "Mr. Belvedere" among others- Gary was honored by ASCAP (The American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers) for having composed the most performed television themes for six consecutive years. Gary is a two time Emmy nominee- for the Cheers theme and for "I Still Believe In Me", a song he co-wrote for an episode of "Fame". His songs have been recorded by a diverse group of notables including Dolly Parton, Phish, Air Supply, and Leon Redbone. In addition, his self-titled album on Columbia Records was recently re-issued on CD by Sony Japan. Over the years Gary has made occasional television appearances, including on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the TV LAND Awards.
