Gary Allegretto

Los Angeles, California

Gary Allegretto is an award-winning cowboy singer/songwriter/musician whose rare abilities on the harmonica are virtually one-of-a-kind. American Cowboy Magazine calls his performances… “Amazing. You’ve never seen or heard anything like it.” Indeed, Gary’s jaw-dropping musicianship and unique songwriting has dazzled audiences at every major cowboy gathering and earned him an Academy of Western Artists (AWA) Award and a Best of the West Award.

You can hear his harmonica on the soundtracks of major motion pictures from Warner Brothers to Disney. His most recent recording “Blues on the Trail” has been nominated for 8 AWA Awards including Best Western Artist, Best Western Recording, Best Western Song (6 songs) and is an International Western Music Association finalist nominee for Traditional Western Album of the Year.

Of special note, through his “Harmonikids” nonprofit humanitarian organization, Gary provides educational humanitarian outreach to special-needs youth in the Western communities that he performs, gifting them harmonicas on which he teaches them to play Western songs in joyful therapeutic sessions.
