Gary Puckett is a singer known most popularly for his time spent with the band named Gary Puckett and The Union Gap. This band is a popular pop rock ensemble that came forward in the sixties era and presented several chart topping hits such as "Young Girl", "Woman, Woman", "Over You", "Home", "This Girl is a Woman Now" and "Lady Willpower". Established in the year 1967, the band stayed active for a total of four years, during which time it was able to make a solid name in the music industry. All of these songs received gold certification and were able to fall in the top ten spots on the Billboard Chart.
Born in the year 1942, Puckett grew up in the American state of Minnesota, in a small town called Hibbing that is located near the Twin Falls and Union Gap. Gaining interest in music since a young age, Gary started playing the guitar during his teens. He played during his high school years while studying at the Twin Falls High School and then decided to quit continuing college in order to become a part of local bands. The very first band Gary joined was called Outcasts which was a local rock band. This hard rock ensemble consisted of Dwight Bement who played the saxophone, Gary Mutha Withem the keyboardist, Kerry Charter the bass player and Paul Wheatbread who handled the drums, apart from Gary Puckett. With this lineup, the band came out with two singles, which were unable to capture the audience’s attention. However, not losing hope, the band decided to try out their luck by touring and toured throughout the Pacific Northwest in the year 1966. After this tour, the Outcast’s manager, Dick Badger decided to change the name to The Union Gap. With the change in name the ensemble also changed their appearances, supporting civil war Union army uniforms. It was then in the year 1967 that The Union Gap started working on their demo album which caught the attention of CBS song writer and record producer, Jerry Fuller. Calling them in for an audition, Fuller decided to sign a contract with them and thus The Union Gap became associated with Columbia Records.
This became their big break as through the record label company, The Union Gap became one of the most popular pop rock ensembles of the late sixties, early seventies era. The debut single that was released after the signing of the contract was called "Woman Woman". This song was written by the legendary Jimmy Page and Jim Glaser. Releasing in 1967, the song became a worldwide hit, landing on the fourth spot of the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. In the next two years The Union Gap presented several more hits that include "Don’t Give in to Him", "Over You", "Young Girl" and "Lady Willpower". Young Girl was able to reach to the top of the UK Singles Chart. As fame grew, the band was invited to perform in front of Prince Charles at the White House in 1968 and they were later seen performing at Disneyland in the same year. With these hits, several members of the ensemble became interested in pursuing a solo career as thus the band disbanded in the year 1971.
Gary Puckett continued touring even after the end of The Union Gap. In the year 1981, Gary reentered the music scene with a bang, with his comeback tour at Nevada. Gary also started working on new material and released his solo debut album in 2001 called "Gary Puckett at Christmas". Some of the most popular solo singles brought forward in the next few years include "Bless the Child", "Hello Morning", "Shimmering Eyes", "Life Has Its Ups and Downs", "All that Matters" and "Gentle Woman".
