BRYANT, GARY

Homebase: Spokane, WA
Stats: 1936-1999
Misc Notes: Gary Bryant was born on May 11, 1936 in Spokane, WA. He entered the music business at age seventeen  as a featured vocalist for T. Texas Tyler's band. In 1956 he joined the Louisiana Hayride and appeared there regularly for several years. One fond memory, was the time he performed there on the same day that Elvis Presley did, and the "Elvis has left the building" line was first used. Soon thereafter he had two releases on Decca Records. Recordings on Starday and Mercury -- as well as other labels including Seattle's Jerden -- followed. He passed away on November 19, 1999, in his hometown.
