Gary Puckett and the Union Gap had six consecutive gold records and sold more records in 1968 than any other recording act ... Including the Beatles. Gary is one of a few artists whose first five releases went gold. Not even Elvis accomplished this. Mr. Puckett played a command performance at the White House for Prince Charles and Princess Anne by the special invitation of the President. Gary Puckett and the Union Gap achieved prominence worldwide. “Young Girl” was reissued by popular request in England where it reached number one and achieved a Silver Record Award for the second time. Gary was a founding member of the incredibly successful “Happy Together” Tour playing to sold-out performances in over 100 cities nationwide. In 1992 Puckett went to Europe and recorded “In Europe”. In August 2001, Gary released his first-ever Christmas CD, “At Christmas”. Gary performs to standing-room-only crowds doing over 150 performances each year.
