About the ArtistGary Brown (Guitar/Vocals) is a DC area native (Palmer Park) with 30+ years playing experience. After picking up his first guitar (an old Guild acoustic) at age 14, the 45 year old Brown quickly progressed to electric and after stints with various local bands, most notably The Spoilers, and sitting in around DC area clubs he decided to take the plunge and form his own group in 1992.

Brown of the band Bushmaster: featuring Jay Turner and Anthony Setola on Bass; Greg Phillips, El Toro Gamble, and Nick Bertling on drums/percussion; and Henry "Rusty" Morton, Lori Rudolph, Allie and Megan Bannigan, Trudi Brown, Max Muller, and Charlene Brown on guest/backup vocals.
Independently Released on August 25, 2006, Bushmaster's second CD is an inspiring collection of original tunes varying from Blues, Rock, Funk, and Rap. Gary's blazing guitar style is even more riveting (if that's possible) than his captivating live performances, you will be glued to your stereo all the way through the album. Influenced by Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower, Frank Marino, Freddy King, and Funkadelic alike, the music on this CD is sure to please a wide spectrum of music lovers.
